Creepy Otaku Seiyuu Stalking Map

eriko-nakamura.jpg

Even by creepy otaku standards, the latest stalking of seiyuu Eriko Nakamura, best known for her role as IdolMaster’s Haruka, is extreme.

After she posted about a trip around the sights of Kyoto on her blog, she soon had her entire route plotted out in chronological order by the ubiquitous creepy otaku stalker legion all seiyuu are seemingly blessed with.

The map even goes so far as to not the exact time of each visit:

Thankfully for her, otaku are still limited in the speed of their hunt by her provision of information, at least until Google decides to create a real time street stalking service.

Just the latest in a long tradition of obsessive behaviour by seiyuu otaku, though still marginally less unsavoury than the practice of monitoring seiyuu blog Christmas photographs for signs they might have been taken on another day and thus be evidence of unlawful boyfriendery.

    Welcome to Google Stalk!

    Please choose the name of your target from the list:...

    At the current time, your target is here *zooms on location* and is moving northwards. Happy stalking!

    Hahah! Keep dreaming. The govs will keep that treat for themselves.

    Really, though, this is pathetic. It's shit like this and crashing children's events that give me mix feelings about that "otaku ban". Cause on the one hand, censorship is a bad precedent, yes, a dangerous path, but then again, there's always been a level of it, there is never total absence of censorship. They're basically just implementing standards that are tradition in all of the West for a very long time now. They have a bad history with censorship and governmental control, because they seem to get too intense about it, just as with almost everything else they do. Yet when you read news like this... c'mon! You're making it impossible to defend your position. Let us have our freedom of expression, even in these questionable subjects, yet there's example after example after example of the extremes and obsessions that stem from it?

    My post is bound to get nuked to oblivion, but I gotta say, I'm on the side of disallowing lolicon and hentai that passes off criminal offense as its main attraction. The industry's at an extreme point where the massive objectionable content it offers seems to make it okay for all those otaku, in their minds, to go beyond the thresholds of decency and civility.

    As creepy as it is, the way otaku are able to pinpoint actual locations based on photos/shots from anime/whatever is really impressive.

    Although, in this case they had the help of her putting timestamps and captions with each location with the shots, so it wasn't particularly difficult at all to make a map.

    theres a typo. lol "The map even goes so far as to not the exact time of each visit" Its small and people probably saw it implied in their minds, forgot what its called but. Its there.

    Anyway, I wonder if they actually enjoy all this attention.

    If these over-obsessive/creepy otaku hadn't discovered manga/anime/ero-games, they'd be members of some religous cult, selling flowers at the airports and praying to their great 'leader'.

    What kind of nut would want to stalk a seiyuu? Sure, I think Yuko Mizutani's kinda cute, but not that cute enough that I want to stalk her.

    I am very interested about seiyuus since i discovered Hirano Fumi´s and Saeko Shimazu`s excellent voices. I would never stalk some seiyuu ever, no way.
    Not normal behavior if you appreciate someone´s work.

    What are they even trying to accomplish? They want to follow the same route later in order to breathe the same air or walk on the same road?
    Or maybe they're trying to predict her future location so they can meet her and... Ho, I'd rather not think about it. >_>

    Why the hell are these otaku even interested in the seiyuu? These are 3DPD compared to their 2D counterparts. I mean if it was Kugimiya Rie I'd understand.

    Anon 13:08 again, following up. As I said, I don't like dealing in absolutes, so, you CAN make decisions that could harm others, it just depends on circumstances (i.e. war, designing a car or waste treatment facility, etc). It's a balancing act, weighing the effects your choices may have; obsessions tend to tip the scales in undesirable directions.

    I don't like dealing in absolutes, but being too obsessed about anything never ends well. If you're overly fanatical about religion (note the OVERLY FANATICAL part), you get the Crusades and terrorism. If you're too obsessed with your body image, you may diet or exercise excessively and harm yourself. If you're overly fanatical about things that don't exist or don't ultimately matter (note the OVERLY FANATICAL part), then you neglect the important things. Regardless of the target of one's obsessions, it often ends up spilling over into other people's lives and negatively affecting them.

    It's okay to like fantasy, food, work, religion, manga, money, anime, exercise, video games, and most other things. It becomes a problem when it negatively affects your life or the life of another. If something has negative consequences for yourself and yourself alone, then that's your choice to accept the negative consequences, but you can't make that decision for other people when it can harm them as well.

    I'm sure they're working on it at this moment.
