Hoshimi Aoto-1

Hoshimi Aoto-4

An otaku musician famous on NicoNico Douga has been arrested for having sex with an underage fan who approached him at Comiket.

The 31-year-old Tokyo musician enjoyed modest fame through his music on NicoNico Douga, released under the name “Hoshimi Aoto.”

However, his popularity was his undoing – a 17-year-old female high schooler approached him whilst he was attending a Comiket music booth, and proved more than willing to express her appreciation for his talents amorously.

The pair indulged in carnal relations at a hotel in the Tokyo city of Chofu, a matter which somehow came to the attention of the authorities.

Hoshimi Aoto-3

He was subsequently arrested and charged with engaging in indecent activities with a minor, which he admitted, saying “I thought it was risky but I couldn’t restrain my lust.”

Aside from its enjoyably lurid aspects, the case has been attracting attention for another reason – the stark contrast between “ideal and actuality” offered by pictures of the musician whilst being arrested for his vile deeds and his online 2D portrayal:

    I would find it pretty refreshing if people would actually take their heads out of their asses and start a meaningful debate over what ACTUALLY constitutes offensive behaviour nowadays.

    At age 17, that girl is very likely to have a HUGE backlog of sexual intercourse under her skirt. As much as Japan tries to play ostrich to the world, it's a fact that underage prostitution is rampant and pretty much accepted there. Accepted, as in the "law" doesn't want to go up against to rich suits that spend so much money "harmless delivery health.

    Every once in a while they'll just pick an easy scape-goat, read: "creepy otaku offender", and pretend to uphold outdated/inappropriate laws.

    To be fair, that's not only a problem in Japan. Underage sex is common everywhere. Age of consent is a relic that is no longer fit for most societies. The biggest failure being the unwillingness to truly discuss the topic.

    Yes, this. The subject is so very taboo for some reason, despite a lot of people having sex while being 13. I myself remember becoming interested in sex quite early, maybe at the age of 11 or something?
    In this case there were obviously no such thing as child abuse involved, which just makes the whole case look dumb.

    If he loses a bit of weight and gets a better hair cut, that fantasy appearance could be closer to reality.

    He isn't even that fat compared to those americans. Looks pretty healthy-looking to me. Maybe workout some muscles and he could score some serious ass.

    Just as water runs downhill, the human heart will always revert to its basest instincts. In this case, sex with an attractive female.

    Ok I seriously think you've made a mistake when you said "He's amazingly talented"

    He DID NOT make "Senbonzakura" the song, he only sang it and uploaded the vid like many other.

    Was he even that popular? His voice suck IMO

    This guy is right, Senbonzakura is composed by 黒うさP, and that upload is just a below average utattemita. I follow the scene closely and he's semi-popular at best. He was somewhat famous around 2010~2011, but then he vanished from popularity. After this incident, his old videos exploded on the ranking, but it's just because of this incident, so.

    The age of consent is 16 in many different countries, also in my own. Like hell, the girl was 17, so what. She's old enough to decide whether she has sex. It pisses me off how poor otaku get baited into traps like that while in other countries cases like this couldn't even be reported as rape, as there was obvious consent.

    The national age of consent in Japan is 13 as specified by the Japanese Penal Code Articles 176 and 177. However, prefectures can have ordinances that prohibit sexual activities with any minor under 18.

    IMO biologically 13 is fine, but socially creepy. 16+ seems fine though, especially given females reaching maturity sooner than males. Hell most men are still children well into their 30s.

    It's 13 state-wide, but every prefecture can set it own age of consent, most set it to 18.

    Japanese politicians are either completely naive or full of shit.

    16 in Texas and Florida. I think Federally 18 is universal in the US, but States are given some degree of leeway on self-governance and that include marital affairs. Some are a little weird though. For example marital consent age being lower than consensual sexual congress age limitations. I'm not really sure how that's enforced, but it *is* rather hilarious.

    The thing in Japan the lack of land, many live with parents and family making it the only possibility going to a hotel, very risky if you take a JK.

    Otherwise if one were to live alone and take her home, we would not see so much arrests.

    anti-child prostitution law supersedes existing prefecture law, effectively making sex with anyone under 18 illegal.

    From Wikipedia:
    The national age of consent in Japan is 13 as specified by the Japanese Penal Code Articles 176 and 177.[37][dead link] However, prefectures can have ordinances that prohibit sexual activities with any minor under 18.[38]

    ‘Rape’, Art. 177 Penal Code 'A person who, through violence or intimidation, has sexual intercourse with a female person of not less than thirteen (13) years of age commits the crime of rape and shall be punished with imprisonment at forced labour for a limited term of not less than two years. The same shall apply to a person who has sexual intercourse with a female person under thirteen (13) years of age.'[39]

    'Indecency through compulsion', Art. 176 Penal Code 'A person who, through violence or intimidation, commits an indecent act upon a male or female person of not less than thirteen (13) years of age shall be punished with imprisonment at forced labour for not less than six months nor more than seven years. The same shall apply to a person who commits an indecent act upon a male or female person under thirteen (13) years of age

    It's 13!! here's the proof http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_Asia#Japan

    however if the kid was under 18 she could file a complaint, otherwise there shouldn't be a problem
