Much criticism has been directed at creepy otaku who swarmed an event for little children in order to get a chance to touch the show’s adolescent presenters, buying up all the goods on offer and leaving none for the little kiddies in the process.

The controversy centres on an “Oha-girl” (referring to the youthful assistants who appear on TV Tokyo’s “Oha-star”) handshaking event, ostensibly held for the benefit of the young children the morning TV programme is aimed at.

Buyers of the “miracle spin baton” sold at the event also got a signed photograph of the girls and the chance for a handshake, and therein the problems arose – creepy lolicon otaku buyers soon bought up all the batons, some buying ten or more, leaving none for the children.

Attendees (admittedly not themselves in much of a position to criticise others) were soon complaining about this and the sheer number of “big friends” in attendance – although as in fairness all this could easily be headed off by only letting children or families attend, it seems odd that the organisers who ultimately profit escape censure:

“All the batons are sold out!”

“You guys bought too many…”

“You mean they didn’t provide enough! They underestimated our numbers!”

“This is troubling the normal visitors…”

“The baton exchange queue was nothing but old guys.”

“Today was a huge gathering of creepy otaku. And not a hot guy among you.”

“The guy in front of me bought 11. I do think he wanted to give them to kids though.”

“This is harsh!”

“11…”

“What are you going to do with 11? Give them to the little kiddies.”

“Don’t cause problems for the children, you guys.”

“This is awful. Restrain yourselves!”

“You want to shake their hands that much?”

“Poor kids.”

“They called this ‘a gathering for sub-elementary schoolers’…”

“We’re just big kids.”

“The organisers really did seem to be expecting more families.”

“Where are all the children?”

“It’s nothing but old guys!”

“It’s the organiser’s fault for not restricting who could buy them. Otaku were just doing what they had to.”

“They seem not to have realised otaku would buy all the batons. Some crappy agency used to dealing with otaku would have realised.”

“There was a really embarrassing announcement that some creepy otaku who mass-bought plastic toys to get a handshake ticket ‘forgot’ all his toys and left them by the escalator.”

“For shame!”

“We were asking whether we could buy all this stuff in multiples. The organisers can decide whether we can, and they allowed it. The final responsibility really lies with them. Why do we get blamed for this? Why should we apologise? The ones who should apologise are the Oha-girls organisers.”

“Gross. Blaming your victims?”

“God, he really thinks that…”

“The lady presiding over it greeted the audience as both ‘all our little friends’ and ‘all our big friends,’ like it was totally normal. That’s just how it is.”

    This post made me realize that "Type B otaku" get capitalism, while "Type A otaku" don't.

    I mean, just look at all the Type B otaku in the comments talking about how they should "limit the sales of the batons". Talk about capitalism fail. No wonder Type B otaku and their anime will always make more revenue and win.

    Exactly. Type A otaku are basically a bunch of socialist-wannabees who are angry that Type B otaku make more money than them.

    Yeah, they totally should introduce communism. Communism => shortage of goods => only one baton per person => problem solved.

    Although, on the second thought... this scheme will fail pretty quickly, once the creepy otakus will reinvent the techniques used by the soviet people to circumvent the "only X goods per person" rule, namely by entering the queue over and over. I heard the Japanese are pretty good when it comes to queues.

    Well, at least they won't be able to exploit the system even more by bringing their children to stand in the queue. OH GOD THE NIGHTMARES. THEY'RE COMING BACK. THE BUTTER QUEUE. THE SUGAR QUEUE. THE WHO THE FUCK KNOWS WHAT THEY SELL BUT I STAND HERE ANYWAY IT MIGHT BE USEFUL THING QUEUE. FUCK THE 80'S IN THE USSR!

    >"Communism => shortage of goods =>"
    This isn't exactly a very intelligent appropriation of the term "communism" to begin with.

    But Communism is not about underproduction, it's about overproduction and attempting to destroy the scarcity of things. Communists would have people produce as much food for the sake of it as possible.

    If I was a commy dictator, I'd make sure to promote as many otaku freakism as possible, as it'll be easier to control the otaku masses with cheap "exclusive" mass produced plastic trinkets for the most "enthusiastic" among the Party members!

    Lol, shows like these probably get half their revenue selling merchandise to devoted otaku.

    My guess is that the "organizers" secretly planned for something like this, while publicly acting like its a problem.

    Sadly, these Lardy Tards will soon outbreed us Nipponese pedophiles due to the fact that they are sexually attracted to women of the same age.

    DISGUSTING!!!!

    Also, it's troubling that our Jap penises are a mere 2 inches erect. We will never satisfy Japanese women. We are doomed before the penile MIGHT of the superior American Male.

    No matter.

    2 inches is MOAR THAN ENOUGH TO STICK INTO A DERICIOUS JAPANESE 7 YR. OLD CHILD!!!!!

    JAPAN IS GLORIOUS CAPITAL OF CHILD RAPE!!!!!!

    I can fathom why. However, and while I'd blame the organizers as well, it baffles me how so many of those grown men lack the shame not to behave this way. Considering how most of society views them, even there I think, it seems sort of an auto-destructive or masochist tendency. Really, I can only imagine the bulk of these folk being either truly depraved or rather dumb, to be doing this. Showing up at a children's event en masse and hogging everything? How shameless can you be without being considered criminal?

    In a society that so emphasizes the concept of shame, this seems like an ironic social phenomenon that would otherwise not happen.
    Imagine I were there, living in Japan and taking my kids to the gig, I would tell them off, otaku creepers and organizers alike, sure as hell! I would make a scene, if it had to come to that.

    Except that many of the otakus in question only bought the merchandise for the hand-shake ticket, not for the baton itself. They're not exactly "devoted" to the right cause...

    No, you're wrong, this is a major problem.

    1st : if there's only "old" guys - a creepy thing for me - industry will miss many new customers.

    2nd : you can't live every single day of your life to run after kid's oriented show. It's just irrational.

    3rd : what's the meaning or their life ?

    1. This could easily be fixed by making an Lolicon and Children's section, meaning that EVERYONE can enjoy the show without disturbing/tempting the other.

    2. Is it any better than people who spend their entire paychecks on sports memorabilia? I don't get why people live every day of their life following sports, celebrities, and for the most part politics, but people do it anyway!

    3. The most influential human only effected a number of species on a single floating rock in the vast ocean of empty space that may or may not be right next to countless other oceans in an infinitesimal void. Their lives meaning being "to worship a specific children's serial" is just as valid as yours is.

    While this is in fact a problem (I don't particularly approve of the darker sides of otaku), I wouldn't go so far as to say major. A couple of different things could have been done in order to prevent this horror story, but it isn't the end of the world.

    I'm gonna focus on the most important subject you bring up. Politics. You don't get why there are people who follow politics? Why, politics are unlikable? Yeah, I dislike them as well. All the more reason to follow them as it's people who find it unworthy of following and be bothered with that originate the problem called "real politik", by abstaining en mass when they're not voting for the guy that shook their hand. Some of us, especially those voting blank, realize that democracy can't work unless you get involved. Otherwise, if you can't be bothered, you deserve to be ruled by an autocracy.

    This is why they call it the tyranny of the majority...

    Exactly correct. All the people who, say, collect old comic books watch animated Disney classics are basically worthless as well. What indeed is the meaning of their lives if they dare to hold an interest in something?

    1st: They'd really only be missing out on kids as new customers, but who's to say that more "old guys" wouldn't be joining the craze?

    2nd: People choose to live life as they see fit. It shouldn't really matter to you what they do with their lives.

    3rd: Once again, why should you care?

    Ok. and who the fuck are you to judge the acts of the said "creepy otakus"?? who gave you this authority/power?

    if someone has a different interest, you bash him. if someone acts differently, you bash him. if someone has a different life, you bash him.

    stop being a faggot and let them be the way they want. they`re doing nothing wrong in the end, since the money they are expending is their own received salary. and if the organization of the event didn`t make rules to allow only kids to participate or limited the quantity of products a person can buy, there`s no problem here at all. the organization got their money anyways.

    Lol, I don't think a lot of people realize that one of these three girls, Ikuta Erina, is a member of Morning Musume. That's probably why a lot of fans were visiting the event.

    the only reason i think there were any otaku there was mostly cus of the girl on the far left. erina is in the 9th generation group of morning musume, and as you guys already know they have quite a few "big kid" fans of their own.
    i dont know much about the other two though, but i belive that if those guys really wnated anyone's autograph and handshake it was erina.

    Handshaking is a form for children to get closer to their idols, just it. Of course the kids would want handshake with these girls.

    You know, if they just said "Limit one baton per person" running out wouldn't be a problem. If it still is a problem, then it's on the promoters for not bringing enough batons to the venue.

    Actually, if the sold the batons to the children and not the adults then this wouldn't have happened. But as they don't care who buys them so long as someone does I guess that wasn't an option.

    And before someone says this wouldn't work, its not hard to give a child money to go and buy something.

    And before someone mentions that adults could bribe kids to buy them for them, I remind you that men in Japan can't even ask directions of a middle school student without being subject to a man hunt in some places.
