Schoolgirl Bagger “Was Lolicon Precure Otaku”


The man who attempted to bag a 12-year-old girl and make off with her in a taxi has been denounced by the media as a creepy lolicon Precure otaku, with psychologists immediately blaming anime and manga and the media calling for yet more anime censorship.

The 20-year-old student plucked a 150cm tall 12-year-old off the street and forced her into his bag with a fruit knife, taping her hands, but after putting the bag in the trunk of a taxi her cries of “let me out!” aroused the suspicions of the driver, who had previously thought the bag might contain a dog or other unusual contents.


The man immediately asked to be let off the taxi, but the driver – a prefectural boxing champion – grabbed him as he ran off and held him in the back seat, asking a passer-by to call the police.

The girl was unharmed, and police promptly arrested her kidnapper at the scene.

His motivations for attempting to kidnap the girl are still not entirely clear (although they seem obvious enough), and he only says “my circle activities were not going well so I resolved to assault a little girl out of desperation.” He concedes he did have lascivious intent towards the girl.

According to acquaintances at his university art club, “He didn’t come much. He really loved Precure, and often went to Akiba maid cafes, he said.”

Police have so far only managed to turn up “commercial DVDs with scantily clad girls on the covers” from searches of his home and computer, although this seems to be enough proof of his deviance for the media to immediately launch into demands for a new wave of censorship.

The authorities and media have been quick to pin the blame on the evils of anime and manga – one psychologist with no familiarity with the suspect theorises wildly that:

“That he did not act on his urges at the scene and instead attempted to take her home is an indication that he viewed the little girl merely as an ‘object.’

He was acting to fulfill his desires without regard to social norms. Such patterns of thought are normally related to childhood development issues.

There are cases were pedophile games and manga stimulate the desires of such people, and cause them to be unable to distinguish between fantasy and reality, leading to such incidents.”

Online there is some suspicion about the way the case is being handled by the media, although few can deny the creepiness of Precure fans:

“He was a total lolicon, wasn’t he?”

“Here we go – anime was at fault, otaku are to blame!”

“As usual there are all manner of experts on hand who are desperate to blame this on manga and anime…”

“You lolicon are desperate to defend him, aren’t you! Ban that filth immediately.”

“The problem here appears to be his 3D interests, not his 2D ones…”

“Well done to the taxi driver!”

“Stick to watching Precure, freaks.”

“Precure viewers are the ones you should be worried about, not the ones who just watch late night anime.”


“The media have been showing a high school graduation essay of his – they blurred it out, but you can tell he actually had a Korean surname at that time. I thought this was just more fabrication from the right-wingers, but it seems to be true…”

“More lies from the right-wingers!”

“Why did they mosaic out his surname in that report when they have been reporting his ‘real’ name constantly everywhere else?”

“You can see he had a single character surname clearly, so he was almost certainly an ethnic Korean who took a Japanese alias. And why else would they mosaic it?”

“So the mass media gloss over the fact he was one of their beloved Koreans and instead use it as an opportunity to bash otaku.”

“I suspect the media just did anything they could to get the guy to call him an anime fan… a Precure-loving maid cafe goer is like the ultimate otaku stereotype the media loves to bash.”

“Sounds like they are trying to make him out as an otaku to bury the fact he was a Korean.”

“Creepy otaku are as bad as those filthy Koreans.”

“I doubt he was a Korean, the media wouldn’t bash a Korean criminal so heavily.”

“It’s a bit hard to call anyone a lolicon when they are only 20.”

“Ban Precure.”

“Don’t blame Precure, blame all the old guys who insist on watching it.”

“Precure is actually quite good though… even without the characters it’s quite entertaining and the animation is not bad.”

“He didn’t even have his own car – men really are useless without their own car…”

“I think AKB fans are far more likely to display extremes of criminality.”

“Honestly, loli, maids and 2D – all these involve fantasy or partners of inferior status, it’s laughable when men who like these start spouting off about women being bitches or sluts.”

“Precure = it’s an anime for little girls with very little loli content

Maid cafes = ugly girls 2D lovers wouldn’t give a second glance to working as cosplay prostitutes

These are both really on the fringes of 2D culture. It’d have to be Ichigo Marshmallow or something for their criticisms to be valid.”

“You’d think these cases occurred every day from the hysteria the media drums up, but there’s only one case a year or so.”

“They didn’t even get any 2D stuff in the search, what a pity for the media.”

“Suite Precure vs Suite Onacure:”


“Blame lolicon, not games and manga!”

    "There are cases were pedophile games and manga stimulate the desires of such people, and cause them to be unable to distinguish between fantasy and reality, leading to such incidents.”

    Sure, but normally the people who become "unable to distinguish between fantasy and reality" already had something wrong with them before hand.

    This is all just one form of Media attacking another form of Media because it takes away viewers.

    I say that News is what causes Depression. Always filled with stories about Crime and Politics. We should censor the news!

    Because the Japanese don't have public service announcement to educate children and adults who "unable to distinguish between fantasy and reality" that's the problem.They need to reach out with some raw emotion to make people understand reality it seems this guy is the worst example of a person who seems to misplace his fantasy into a Bag of shit.

    That's because the mentally ill & the disabled are considered 2nd class citizens there. Japan only believes in a pure race, where the defects as swept under the rug.

    as someone who likes loli anime characters and such, i think i can say that it takes alot more than just urges from games and shows to actually commit an act of pedophilia. Some things may be cute in anime/game form but its alot different picturing them screaming instead of giggling. Anyone who would actually try that is sick in the first place, all games and anime can do is change their preference of who they want to rape/kidnap/etc.

    I'm glad the taxi-driver caught him because god forbid what he would have done to the little gal (rape/murder the likely) but people are evil and would still break the law even if manga/anime wasn't around anyway.

    I find this totally idiotic.

    If someone on the road drives drunk, and crashes into another person and kills the, does that mean everyone else must stop driving?

    Of course not! But this is the growing mentality that both the U.S. and now even Japan are having towards Otaku's who have nothing to do with the heinous crime this guy attempted to commit. So this idiot had some anime DVD's and it's being used as a scape-goat and excuse to censor more and ban anime/manga media all-together.

    Paint them all black and throw away the key. So that must mean the women at CLAMP are criminals too since they create material like CHOBITS.

    Obvious this trashcan has some deranged problems, and decided he wanted to take out his problems on another human being and admitted to it being so called "stress" of things not going well in life. It's called the "snapping or boiling point" pretty much like how some gunner guy decided to fire on people in a movie-theater in NA, or how people with money suddenly decide to shop-lift from "Stress".

    Does that mean guns should be banned, video-games with guns banned, and movies banned?

    No. Same with anime/manga.

    Their are many cases long before this one that label creepy Otaku who done crazy and stupid things that Japanese found it displeasing or offensive and this just adds to the list.

    Already Otaku in Japanese culture is earning a bad reputations because of this kind of shit happening its sad to say that Otaku being label in the same lines as criminals.

    Feminist are there for the money. They really don't give a shit about female "righs" because if they did they would stop trying to tell females how they *should* dress the way they "want" them to dress.

    And they would kindly butt their noses out of men being attracted to pretty women to the start. Bunch of ugly fat vultures feminites are.

    Since the Japanese are so keen on "taking responsibility" for their actions, I think they should do something about it.

    Anime is the catalyst but not the cause. It's not an altogether wrong approach to remove the catalyst but it's only a temporary solution at best.

    If someone's fictional-based hobbies contribute to their deviancy, it's not the hobby that's to blame, it's the person's inability to separate fiction from reality.

    Generally such a person already has their own issues, if it weren't one thing it'd be something else that causes them to act.

    But that is not what politicians/activists and all those fear-mongers want. For those people, there is ONLY Black and White. Nothing in-between,because it wouldn't serve their agenda.

    Blaming anime that very often portrays 12 year old girls as sex objects does sound like the right source to me. Maybe it'll be a good chance to reduce the amount of loli fanservice shows that have really taken over and get something different for a change.

    Average people, average journalists of mass media, and especially average psychologists aren't too intelligent and to feel themselves safe in their everyday life, they need to find concrete and specific reasons for people going awry, reasons average people can understand. They wouldn't be able to bear living in a world where someone could perform a crime or some other heinous act unless it was a direct reason of the person's suspicious past, hobbies, and preferably unwholesome childhood.

    That's how simple people cope with anything bad in the world. It can't be helped.

    You just don't see the big game. The media is just a tool for political interests. The right wingers are not as stupid as they want you to believe. They wouldn't be in the position to orchestrate public opinion if they were.

    Not to say anything bad about teachers or you, but populations who seek professions where they work with children have a higher number of pedophiles than the general population.

    Correlation != Causation?

    No shit they have a higher number of pedophiles than the general population, that's unfair. The adult to child ratio is insanely skewed. Even if, say, pedophiles find a job working with children specifically to molest them, that's just logical. If they were seeking a job with proximity to children, they wouldn't be looking for work on an oil rig.
