AKB48 Otaku’s “$200,000” Election Budget



Even as the aftermath of the saw attack on AKB48 continues, the Japanese media are still finding creepy otaku in the midst of preparations for the general election – the latest boasting that his election spend will come to 20,000,000 yen and showing off his house-filling and landfill-bound CD collection.

The 38-year-old self-employed man estimates there are “probably about 10,000 copies in my house now,” giving some insight into how the group maintains its chart-topping status.


His antics have provoked the usual disgust and incredulity online, along with the still unanswered question of what one of the girls would do for him were he to just hand over the cash directly…

    Wow 200.000$... Damn thats a lot of hookers >.>

    Why arent there any groups like Feminists / MRA / Addiction help, protecting these people from harming themselfs and helping them from beeing exploited by the companies behind AKB48?

    Feminists don't give a shit about rights or justice. They want to castrate men and then become them.

    Says the virgin misogynist whose also probably a closet homosexual.

    I just call 'em how I see 'em. Just look at all the anti-gay and anti-women activists who get caught hiring same-gender prostitutes.

    No, there's nothing wrong with being gay; its just wrong to be an asshole to your fellow homosexuals about it and stereotyping feminists.

    Feminism logic: if he says feminism is a load of bullshit, then certainly he's a virgin gay fat small-dick pig .

    Oh, also, call someone gay in a derogatory way but try to look nice to the gay community, because remember, feminism is all about equality, yeah.

    (Nevermind showing any evidence of feminism not being a load of bullshit.)

    Feminists do care about rights and justice. It's just that they define those terms not in any objective way, but solely subjectively. Whatever benefits them is right and just, as far as they're concerned. So not only do they insist that all outcomes benefit them, they twist the very language to their own benefit.

    They are evil to their very cores.

    Not the first time in human history "justice" is used as justification to commit atrocities through deception and a very gullible public.

    But it's hard to know if those people actually believe they are doing anything right when they hurt others or not.

    For that he could have ordered himself a wife from some other country.

    Because the Feminists would call him, and people like him, a rapist.

    Also a pedophile and a creep.
    The correct term would be ephebophile, but real feminist never look that up anyway.

    One would think that by now they'd just start to forge entry forms. It cannot be that hard to reproduce these forms. I doubt they're even numbered.

    And more than that, I doubt anyone even looks at them. They all likely get thrown in the incinerator upon arrival. As these popularity "contests" are all rigged by their yakuza backers.

    It's a code that you enter online. It's not a form.

    $200K is he self employed in the illicit pharmaceutical business?

    Nah, he just does not pay his parents room & board. Nor does he own a car or pay for anything else with monthly payments. He just draws hentai doujinshi for losers like himself. All that 'dirt' on his hands is actually dried ink.

    The factoid that the average japanese males at least 3 AKB48 cds is a statistical error and infact the average japenese male has 0 copies. otaku george buys 10,000 copies of every album and is an outlier so he should not have been counted.

    A bit under 4million yen per year. So, it's impossible for a salaryman. Even for 5 salarymen.

    He's self employed so maybe a lawyer,electrician, or a plumber etc.

    More likely he's Yakuza. If the media use spongy terms like "businessman" or "self-employed" to describe someone's job, it usually means something's fishy ...

    well, i suppose in some sense this is equivalent to rich people donating lots of money to political parties... they just want to see the person they like win. i mean more power to this otaku if he can afford it.

    You got Japanese niggas out there #struggling and you go blow 200,000 bones on some CD of female voices harmoniously singing so you can imagine them serenading you because you'll never actually have a chance with them.

    And, as usual, this is certainly not something underhanded... Seriously, everything around AKB smells like gangsta rap sales and marketing techniques.

    With a same amount of money he definitely can BUY 10 AKB48 members and have sex with them.

    You think akb48 members are going to give up their careers for only 10k? How quickly people forget the girl who shaved her head and made a video crying when it came out she had dated someone.

    I totally condone this. If the man is happy and can afford it, it's all good. Over the course of 11 years I probably spent about the same amount

    Flying to Thailand outside Bangkok to see "Mai noi" who is turning 13 this year and a few other girls in rural parts. My money pretty much feeds their family. The sex is wonderful, and I have a friend to sightsee with and translate. Also I am sure she will now get a good education.

    On second thought, that guy is a bit selfish and wasteful.

    They may as well drop the pretense and just have an option to sell commemorative cards... save the environment and make it more convenient, etc. Some of these ubernerds might even buy more, since their apartments will be able to hold more units.
