GANTZ vs NEET

gantz-oppai-by-oku-hiroya

Gantz creator Hiroya Oku has angry words for the nation’s NEETs after having apparently having suffered severe injuries at their hands, though fortunately only to his pride as a mangaka.

The exchange as it took place on Twitter:

My wife’s MMO friend asked me ‘If you’re a mangaka why don’t you give me a job as a seiyuu?’ What the hell does she think a mangaka does?

[…]

That person now wants to become a mangaka, at 30, and asked me what software to use to do it. Talk about underestimating things..

[…]

There are too many damn NEETs in this country who treat life like some kind of joke.

The 2ch response:

Shut it. We know, even if you don’t tell us.

This guy’s a bit weird, isn’t he?

Maybe you end up like this if you don’t have experience of proper work.

What does age have to do with becoming a mangaka?

A normal person probably couldn’t tell the difference between a NEET and a mangaka anyway.

Your wife’s playing MMOs or whatever? You should have shut up after that.

A lot of NEETs will be dying in the next chapter of GANTZ, won’t they?
