A gang of four caught stealing Kara no Kyoukai posters claim they were intending to sell the posters to the otaku market.
The four thieves, ranging from 20 to 60 and of both sexes, were caught stealing posters featuring Shiki Ryougi and others from Type-Moon’s novel series, Kara no Kyoukai.
The posters, created to promote both the latest Kara no Kyoukai movie adaptation and Tokushima’s Awa Odori festivities, are unavailable for sale and were produced in the relatively limited quantity of 600.
Explaining their theft, they said “It was written in the papers that they would sell dearly so we nabbed them.”
They have been charged with theft.
Surprisingly, Taiga seems to have escaped this fate despite being even more popular…
