“Peeper” Victimises Ayana Taketatsu on Train


Moeblob seiyuu Ayana Taketatsu (Azunyan) has complained of being “peeped at” and filmed by creepy otaku on the Tokyo subway.

She filed her victim report with the masses on Twitter in the tersely eloquent prose common to users of the medium:

“Hmmm, this is most suspect. I may have been the subject of a peeping tom on the Fuktoshin line. And using video…

He shouldn’t have got my pantsu or anything, he seemed to be just filming me sat down. What can you do about this?”

“I should have filmed him back!! Maybe that would have been good proof of what he was up to!! But that’s a crime as well… Sorry. I was hungry, I couldn’t think properly. Curse my appetite.”

“Damn it, this is annoying! I should have at least made a face at him!”

It should be noted that taking photographs of people (or women who subsequently complain about it, at any rate) or using their likeness without permission is a regularly punished crime in Japan.

There is some debate as to whether this was a random encounter with a creepy seiyuu otaku, a random encounter with a creepy pervert filming a pretty girl, or even a stalker or similar, which Taketatsu seems to have attracted an abundance of:

“Poor girl!”

“I can’t believe one of those peeping bastards would target Ayachi. Probably it was just a habitual offender shooting a cute girl.”

“She’s gradually turning into the next Hirano. Next she’ll be making stuff up about taxi drivers…”

“I think she’s just trolling for sympathy.”

“Upload your pics, guys.”

“So Ayanyan uses the Fukutoshin line…”

    if you're going to be famous w/in the anime community in japan it's a given you're gonna get the creepos (which japan seems to have a lot of)...plus she is cute so she probably gets creepos that just stare at her for that too (nevermind the anime connection)

    Not to mention seiyuu work has always have had quite a bit of a fan following, so various things related to idols overlap. I doubt she got into voice acting without knowing the reality of the business, so she better grow a thicker skin instead of fussing over someone staring.

    Poor girl has yet to notice that the industry is making seiyuu into idol... and filming and taking pics of idol you happen to see IRL is what most of people do.

    If she doesn't like it she can just wear a white mask like half of the cute girls in the metro (don't tell me there are so many girls with a cold regardless of the season...)

    Yes, because it's totally her fault otaku are crude, rude, and impolite. Let's not make a person responsible for his own rudeness.

    I'm not her fault, it's the industry's fault for making seiyuu into idols.

    B still, if she was aware of that status she would take the train and ask her company to pay a taxi.

    And it's a swing and a miss!

    The point is that you're still blaming someone else for your own decisions and choices.

    Be a damn MAN and take responsibility for your own damn choices. Or remain a BOY and blame everyone but yourself for everything.

    Asians only look all the same to non-asians. If the viewer is also asian, then they can differentiate between them. Don't let your white blindness be so apparent.

    that's true, there are tons and tons of Hollywood stars, this would be the equivalent. Really annoying to have to go out in disguise before going anywhere in public or prepared to be on the news next day.
    she is too cute thou.....if I by chance see her on the public transit, I'd totally whoop out my phone and start recording. lol

    But is Creepy Otaku - Counter Stalking acceptable?

    Maybe she should of retaliated by taking pics of the stalker to give to authorities.

    At least we would have another artecle to either applaud or berate when the pics go public.

    Worst of all is that these fans do not accept as a seiyuu tries to have a normal life. They think they are goddesses or Mikus.
    To end their life together and devote themselves whole heartedly to fans.
    This is outrageous.
    Not here in Brazil is so. These Japanese need to grow and leave home.

    O pior de tudo é que esses fãs não aceitam quando uma seiyuu tenta ter uma vida normal. Eles pensam que elas são deusas ou Mikus.
    Para acabar com sua vida juntos e dedicar-se inteiramente aos fãs.
    Isso é ultrajante.
    Nem aqui no Brasil é assim. Esses japoneses precisam crescer e sair de casa.

    Only in japan? really? Find me a place anywhere in the world where celebrities aren't photographed and/or filmed by fans when they go out in public.

    I'd bet anything that it's unwelcome by the celebrity most of the time.

    It sounds like she was, internally. Raising a fuss would've made it worse, I think.

    Otaku on train: "Taketatsu-san, what's that long, black, tube-like thing you have hanging from a strap on your shoulder?"

    Taketatsu-san: "It's a camera I use to photograph creepy otaku."

    Otaku: "Really? What kind is it?"

    Taketatsu-san: "It's not a Canon, but it is a cannon. I keep it loaded with ISO 00-buckshot."

    C'mon, women don't own the world, taking pictures on public places should be legal. Even thought no stalking, like following girls ofc.

    1: She's popular,
    2: seiyuu otaku being sociable, not shy at all, and asking if he can take a picture or video? High likelyhood that he's turned down anyway?

    Myeah, the guy's just a brave opportunist.

    Actually he is not a stalker, it so happens that Ayana Taketatsu boards the train, since he's noticed her, there he starts filming without asking her if she would allow him to do so, probably he's scared to be misunderstand as a creepy person, so he decided to do it.

    If I where the guy, he should have done what paparazzi's does, do it the legal manner.

    I'm still hoping one day I get a video or picture of Aoi Yuuki in her bathing suit or she's cosplaying Nadeko Sengoku.
