Taiwan Girls Murdered “She Came To Japan To Study Anime”



A pair of Taiwanese students were found stabbed to death in their blood-drenched Tokyo dormitory, having come to Japan to learn Japanese and study anime, it is reported.

The two female Taiwanese exchange students, aged 22 and 24, were studying Japanese in Tokyo. One had come to Japan intent on “studying anime.”

Their school was alerted to the fact that something might be amiss after two male Taiwanese students who had been due to go on a trip with them to Hokkaido reported they were not answering their phones, and the school soon sent someone to investigate.


The pair was found at the dormitory they had been staying at, owned by the Intercultural Institute of Japan and situated in Tokyo’s Taito ward – near Akihabara.

One was found collapsed in the entrance to her room, whilst the other was lying on a bed inside. The room was said to be “covered in blood.” The attack apparently occurred late the previous evening.

Police say they both died from blood loss after being stabbed in the throat, each being the victim of a dozen or more stab wounds, with one being found dead and the other expiring after arriving at hospital.

Investigators have not been able to recover the murder weapon or the keys to the residence.

No suspects are currently being held, although the father of one of the victims says he suspects an acquaintance must be responsible as nobody else would have had easy access to their room, whilst police have apparently found suspect blood stains in the room of a male Taiwanese student in the same building. Police are looking for him.

The pair were described as “cute girls with lots of friends who studied as hard as they could.”

The incident has understandably caused a media furore in Taiwan, and Taiwanese authorities have requested and received full cooperation from the Tokyo police in their investigations. Bereaved family members have also travelled to Tokyo to oversee matters.

    Death?! DEATH?!

    Have him be tortured for days before killing him in the most gruesome manner possible. People need to know that if they murder, they will suffer the worst possible consequences.

    > People need to know that if they murder, they will suffer the worst possible consequences.

    'People need to know' doesn't work. They usually do care about being executed or raped in jail for a lifetime, yet they still perform crime. It's not that the punishment is not harsh enough, it's that they figure they'll not face it, and if they do they'll care about what it is then, not before.

    People say "If you call for the same treatment then how exactly are you different from the murderer?"

    Then what is a just punishment? To just let the person live their life ALIVE while two innocent people had theirs taken without warning?

    So you might as well give them execution right?
    That way there is 0 chance of them ever getting out of prison and doing it all over.

    But the other side of the argument is to give them a lifetime of suffering and confinement?
    Or others.

    No matter HOW you look at it. There just is no right way to handle it that can't be looked upon as unfair or unjust in any way.

    The murderer might have been a woman.

    Taiwanese girls are not exactly muscular. A jealous housewife might have stabbed them fatally.

    I preface the following statement by saying that I in no way mean to undermine or demean the deaths of these poor girls.

    This is why when the day comes that I have children - be they sons or daughters - that they WILL learn how to defend themselves barehanded and armed (either with a melee weapon or firearm).

    The world is a rough place. The police are responders, not preventers (the usual saying is "when seconds matter, the police are only minutes away").

    I want to be able to not worry as much when my daughter or son goes out at night.

    I want to be able to tell my (future) daughter's first boyfriend that I don't have to threaten him because she gave me a black eye last week when we were sparring.

    I want to hear about how someone attempted to hurt one of my (future) kids and ended up in an unpleasant situation because they didn't know what they were dealing with.

    Prepare your kids for the real world. Teach them to think critically. Teach them to defend themselves. Teach them to stand up for what's right and what they believe in. Only then can tragedies like this be averted.

    RIP, may the bastards who did this be found and brought to justice.

RIP to these poor girls. I wish one day I will be able to pull the hammer back on every psychopath and gangster, but remember everyone, always be prepared.

    The meaning of which Japanese qualify barbarians is different from the meaning which you associate with it. Theirs is closer to the original European meaning of "uncivilized peoples" used to refer to pretty much any young state back during the Roman era (later it was used for non-Christian states).

    That settles it. He was obviously the one who snuck into their room and stabbed them to death. Then he planted some anime DVDs and left a note which read "It sure is fun moving to Japan to learn Japanese and Anime!"

    Then he went back to his offices and did the Gendou pose while thinking "All according to keikaku (baka gaijins dont realize keikaku means plan.)"

    Technically even at the airport Taiwan is ROC and China is PROC. Confusing as heck but should not be confound. Though it is true that since many Taiwanese have ancestry rooted back to China so they will call themselves 'Chinese' (only applicable when said in Mandarin/Taiwanese) since their accents are distinguishable from Chinese people (from China), but otherwise in any other language emphasis will be made so be called Taiwanese.

    No, not really you twit.
    First off, there are the 'aboriginal taiwanese', who are essentially the original islanders.
    Then a few hundred (or few thousand years) since their arrival, some people came from mainland, and kind of mingled with the aboriginal. Some of the aboriginal did not mingle and remained isolated in the mountain ranges, or simply the Chinese escapees/settlers/capsized boat survivors just did not go south enough.
    Then another hundred years or so, some Portuguese people sailed past it (and as far as we know, not a lot of them settled) and called it Formosa.
    Then another hundred years later, the Dutch came along and set up a company outpost there. The Dutch then mingled with some of the people present.
    Then the Japanese came along and colonised the island as part of the agreement with the Ching dynasty (even though the Ching dynasty never had much of an influence in Taiwan, where there were only a few officials present in Taiwan)
    Then after the war, the KMT and their defeated army came running into Taiwan, whose descendants only make up around 14% of the population. The Taiwanese people call these people 外省人(Wàishĕngrén) 'People from outside'

    I'm not sure about your language, but in English, the national adjective used in a general context is used to refer exclusively to nationality. That's why we call "Americans" so even through they are not part of the American ethnic group (ie native Americans).

    1.) Taiwanese are generally Chinese (in term of race), it's just that they're civilised and sane enough to be not considered as those people from retarded China.

    2.) There's a difference between people who got murdered out of nowhere by someone and people who died an irony and bizarre death all thanks to the cheap yet deadly stuff provided by the cheapskate people in his/her own country.

    3.) Not many of us here always agree with these childish "Let's nuke *country name*!" kind of comments, unless you're one those people who approve bombing civilians as a heroic act to win a war.

    4.) This isn't even a blog, kiddo.

    "And don't give me that Taiwanese people aren't Chinese crap."

    You are a very narrow minded. That's like saying Americans and Europeans are the same. People aren't defined soley by race, they are also defined by culture. Take the Inuit (Eskimos) for example. They originally migrated from Asia but are not defined as Asian because their culture/lifestyle is different. Also American and British share similar backgrounds, yet are classified differently.
