If you specify --default-character-set=cp932 and execute the script that has japanese comment, MySQL produces the syntax error.
Without --default-character-set=cp932 it works fine.
Data in test-mb.txt file is in cp932 encoding.

$ ./bin/mysql --default-character-set=cp932 < /tmp/test-mb.txt
ERROR 1064 (42000) at line 1: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '┐e┐X┐g
SELECT 1' at line 1

How to repeat:
1. Download file test-mb.txt
2. shell> mysql --default-character-set=cp932 < test-mb.txt
