Anime Exec Busted for JK Cosplay Sex Shoot

ikamusume-cosplay-abuse

The director of a Kyoto-based anime company has been arrested for having a schoolgirl engage in lewd and lascivious cosplay so he could sate his photographic urges.

According to police, a 50-year-old director of an “anime advertising firm” based in Kyoto used met a 17-year-old high school girl on a cosplay site.

Exploiting her interest in cosplay, he invited her to a private cosplay shoot, luring her out with the lie that “I rented a studio and another girl is coming.”

He managed to get her to an Osaka hotel, where he had her wear a costume and then took 520 “obscene” photographs of her in what must have been some at times very partial cosplay, along with 11 videos.

Police have charged him with child pornography related offences due to the nature of the photographs he took.

The suspect concedes he undertook the shoot, but that he “thought she was over 18” and that he “doesn’t want to talk about what we did.”

Police are also investigating whether he had been engaged in the same sort of antics with other girls after finding a large number of similar images on his computer.

The incident apparently came to light the month after the shoot itself, when the girl and her parents approached police.

  • 17?

    That’s not a child. They may or may not have be a dumb teen, but that’s no child. Puberty finishes at 16.

    If they insist on prosecuting this stuff, they at least need to make a “dumb teen abuse” laws. It’s just wrong to go around calling this child pornography.

    Imagine how disappointed an actual paedophile would be if he looked up these pics and discovered some 17 year old hag.

  • So 17 years are childs now? This is fucking retarded. Yes it was kinda gross that there was a 33 year age difference, but really, who gives a shit. I swear, there’s always some over-sensitive asshole who has to always get up in someone elses business. I’ll stick with 2d.

    • The thing is if you say meh to a 17 year old, you’ve now lowered the bar. So the next logical step would be to say meh to 16 year olds once 17 has become the new standard. Then 15 and so on.

      Here in Canada the age of consent is 16, which is gross. Worse yet, the age of consent was 14 only a few years back. If people had a mind your business attitude about the matter here, we’d have disgusting old men dating 13 year olds saying, “What’s one year less than legal?”

      Basically it’s not retarded. Without mores like this in place there’d be nothing stopping people like this from going to further extremes.

      • A horrible example, to say the least. First off, this is YOUR perceived opinion and not a fact. An age-difference doesn’t turn a relationship into something gross. That is your twisted little mind at play again.
        What’s that about “disgusting old men”? Are you some sort of idiot?

        If anything, it’s people like you who make this world worse than it has to be. You only see “dangers” and negatives and you basically condemn people right from the start.

        Let me tell you, your thoughts are dangerous. It’s those kind of thoughts that have fueled the angst-driven, fascist law-crafting of late.

        Nature always tops human-made laws because puberty will always spur a humans sex-drives. Puberty is MEANT to to make people ready for sex. If anything, society should recognize that puberty marks the point of “consent”, which is a stupid term anyway.

        The problem is that people like you only use generalizations when numbers are involved.
        Especially in this case. A photo-shooting with a 17 year can not be labeled under CP.

        What happened here, most likely, is that the girl took the money, spent it and later on she played victim for whatever reason because the wishy-washy Japanese laws allow for it. Why? Because she approached the police a month later.
        The whole incident stinks of foul-play.

        The guy was an idiot to not get confirmation of her being 18, but not because of any ethics/moral reason, no. Age verifications ONLY exist to secure yourself over legal disputes. None of this is about “saving the children and their poor little minds”. All those laws and regulations only exist to keep other laws and regulations in check.

        • “Most of the common “problems” associated with so-called underage sex (which is bullshit anyway for the most part) are directly related to missing education, lacking advise from parents and general neglect. Everything else is natural curiosity and sex drive.”

          As much as you want to rationalize your pedophilia, you will still end up in jail, and your will still get ass-pumped by big guys back there. Your rationalizations are BS too as all evidence points to child abuse being detrimental to children.

        • @ 21:09

          No it is not. Puberty is a physical AND mental process. For most people (if not all) it is exactly that time they will develop a sex drive, which usually isn’t there before that. Not in a way that you’d think of it anyway.

          Being “mentally prepared” is a common misconception. You can be aware of what sex is all about from sex-ed and the usually neglected advise from parents. However, there is nothing that can REALLY mentally prepare you, ever. Your first experience will always be your first experience. Period.

          Most of the common “problems” associated with so-called underage sex (which is bullshit anyway for the most part) are directly related to missing education, lacking advise from parents and general neglect. Everything else is natural curiosity and sex drive.

          CP and abuse of minors are real occurrences BUT most of the time those are used as scare-crow tactics and death-knell arguments when a certain group of people doesn’t want to engage in a debate or something needs to be brushed under the rug.

      • 16 is a reasonable age based on biological development and general mental competence. I wouldn’t advocate for any younger, as that treads close to the range of prepubescent or pubescent, rather than post-pubescent, and attraction to pre-pubescent children actually is pedophilia (as opposed to the popular yet wrong definition of “attraction to anyone under some arbitrary legal limit”). Not sure if it differs in Canada, but in the US 16-year-olds are allowed to control automobiles — so why not their own bodies?

        But if all the “gotta protect the children from pedophiles at any costs” crowd get their way, have fun getting thrown in jail for non-forcible sex with your 24-year-old fianceé when they raise the AoC to 25.

      • rofl “gross”

        Many are going to disagree with you there, and I suspect the only reason you even think it’s “gross” in the first place is because society has rammed that view into your brain.

        • @04:56

          Hey, this is not the Anon you referred to but i got to say, just from reading your comment it’s quite clear you didn’t even get gist of what the others talk about here.

          Why the hell would you even bring pedophilia, child-rape and other nonsense into this debate?

          The main argument is that a a photo session with a 17 year old can not simply be declared as CP. Then people started arguing that the whole idea of what counts as “childhood” and AcC is screwed from the beginning. I share the sentiment that puberty marks the end of childhood. Nature turns children into adults so that they are able to fornicate, physically and mentally.

          Seriously, judging from your boorish comments, it’s quite clear that you are one of those people who quickly run out of arguments and then throw in offensive terms to mask your own inability to lead a reasonable debate.

        • “Many are going to disagree with you there, and I suspect the only reason you even think it’s “gross” in the first place is because society has rammed that view into your brain.”

          Hey asshole, the same reasoning can be applied to you. You and your ilk are conditioned by your society to think child-screwing is OK. Your little club and rationalizations you use for getting erections in response to underage bodies make child-rape OK in your mind. But biology disagrees. If such young girls could screw, it would not be such a major negative for them, through things like depression, higher rate of child and infant mortality among teenage mothers etc.

        • Damn society. I mean those breasts are still not yet developed, those menstrual cycles not always ovulatory, those minds not fully capable of abstract thinking, those genitals without pubic hair and narrow in caliber so that pelvic floor injuries occur. Yeah, blame society, asshole.

  • Wait, I’m confused. I’m in Japan right now and although I haven’t seen them myself I’ve had several people tell me that you can see 14 year-olds in strip clubs here. So how is that ok, but shooting pictures of a 17 year-old isn’t?

    • yep, she was obviously fine with it when he met her, and she was obviously fine with it when he took the photos but then decided to have “seller’s remorse” a month after the fact.

      Gee, that TOTALLY wasn’t blackmail at all.

      • If this was a doujin, the 17 yo would either take the lead or blackmail the guy.

        IRL, who gives a fuck. Ask for a REAL ID! Know WHERE you live! Know WHO you are! The girl was probably trying to hook up with CO through him or he led her on to some effect. Then it all went to hell when she got no job or finally caught on to him.

        I hope it was worth it, to both of them.

  • 17 year old…..CP………

    You know what? NO!

    This has gone on way too long now. I refuse to take this bullshit any longer! 17 year old WOMEN are NO CHILDREN! NOWHERE in the fucking world are those CHILDREN!

    I am very much against exploitation or violence against actual children. True and actual children, which do not have the mental or physical capacity to help themselves against adults. But this? For fucks sake! Those are fully sentient, free-willed and responsible women, not children.

    Do yourselves a favour and speak up against this ridiculous Cp death-knell tactic or we will end up in a not-so-distant future that sees males in prison for just having a penis at all.

    • Age of consent is 13 in most of Japan, but the age of majority is 18. Ergo, by law, she is a child and taking indecent photos is kiddie porn. Oddly, sex would have been legal as long as no gift of any kind was given to the girl. This would constitute child prostitution.

          “Fear of consequence is what we consider to be the mark of an adult, and yet fear of consequence is also why we give up our dreams,”

          This is such stupid binary thinking. Many people do not give up their dreams. In fact they wise up and pursue other dreams or they modify their tactics to get to those dreams. As you get older and gain experience and your brain/mind matures you’re able to grow beyond the stupid childish ambitions you had and focus on more, sensible and appropriate pursuits. This need no mean something less. Take Bill Gates. He may have had a dream of being a policeman as a kid. In his adult days he aimed for and became the richest man in the world.

          HouseLife, who may or may not be some sort of child sex apologist, is suggesting that that’s wrong– that Bill Gates should never have given up his dream of being a plod. Because childish passion and joy and other quaint bullshit based either on sentimentality or just a disingenous attempt to justify child sex — so that pedos can look at very young naked girls – and it’s all legal.

          I call BS.

          Never mind that young kids are stupid and when they screw around and get pregnant, or get HIV, or get HPV or just spoil something nice by making something as beautiful as sex vulgar – because they’ll either sleep with 1. pedos – who will vulgarise it and exploit them, or 2. sleep with slighlty older pathetic teen boys who are jackasses who’ll exploit these girls too.

          Sorry mate. Girls should keep their pants on. If you want underage porn, look at hentai.

        • “””We were designed to have sex and procreate as adolescents based on human history.

          ^^^^ +1 for that commment.

        • @ Anon 6:02

          We were talking about people having sex with younger people when older. Honestly I believe that the concept of the initiatrix and the initiator should exist, that there be people who guide young people into sexual understanding without actually having sex so they become comfortable around it, like the priestesses of old to a degree. It would help across the board I think to open people up to the experience without being blitzed by it.

        • >So the middle ground is to have them wait a bit longer, between the second and third awakenings, so that they can make a more informed decision based on an understanding of consequence in modern society.

          I waited and now I’m close to a 30-year-old sexually confused virgin who’s too timid to try anything with anyone.

          I’m sure the American moralists are right, though; not being able to have any kind of sexual experience back when I was developing the ability to do that probably didn’t affect me, just like how you can easily learn to socialize if you were raised in a box until you were 15.

          I sure am grateful to the old women in charge that I have ended up this way. Sex not being conceived as a terrifying poisonous thing would probably not have helped me at all.

        • @ Anon 16:10

          In his defense, even though his argument is completely not based on this, he is also correct about the fact that brain development should not be the end-all be-all of human sexual agreement. Passion is a must. If we deny our passion, we deny what it means to be human. The JRPGs aren’t just spouting nonsense, even if it’s become a tad cliche.

          Fear of consequence is what we consider to be the mark of an adult, and yet fear of consequence is also why we give up our dreams, so realistically teenagers just enjoying themselves and having sex, and also enjoying sex with someone more experienced, is not necessarily something to be frowned upon. The people we blame are the older people because by default we believe they are being manipulative, simply by the nature of the situation. We’re prejudiced because, let’s face it, it’s common for that to be the situation.

          What has not evolved into the laws though is that children are far, far more intelligent than they used to be, in more ways than one. The innate intelligence of the modern child is so far above that of the previous generations that you will begin to see widespread appearances of children ‘remembering’ experiences they’ve never had, such as the kids who can pick up an instrument suddenly and play like a master, or can read books by placing their hands on them. These exist, and will appear more and more often.

          We were designed to have sex and procreate as adolescents based on human history.

        • It is not arbitrary, but it most definitely is not a ‘plateau’ as it is perceived. Children hit 3 major ages of reason in early life. 3-5, 11-14, and 16-18 in general. Cognitive deduction is not trained or fully prepared in most normal kids by the age of 13, they basically are only just able to perceive their mortality and the any real fundamental facets of consequence. Experiences differ and generate more mature children (and less mature children if an AMV creator I speak with who happens to be 14 is any indication) and therefore are not 100% accurate to any individual, but most people who think the age of consent is arbitrary are ones who either ignore, or don’t even recognize, their ‘hindsight 20/20’ perspective on it. You as you are now can perceive it as ‘no problem,’ however there is a very obvious thing you can watch as a mature adult to see children being manipulated by people with more experience and knowledge than they. An adolescent is interested in sex, however, because of biology. So the middle ground is to have them wait a bit longer, between the second and third awakenings, so that they can make a more informed decision based on an understanding of consequence in modern society. 13 and 14 years olds still have sex here though, but they are completely intuitive about it, and often make horrible decisions. And let’s face it, a 14-year-old boy has no real idea what love is without the lust attached.

        • And even “brain development doesn’t stop until 25” is an absurdly oversimplified description of neurological processes that don’t actually mean what you think they mean and aren’t fully understood.

          Worse, even if you were somewhere in the ballpark of “correct” regarding “brain development”, you fail to take into account the varying degrees of mental capacity of the human population, and even if you did that, you’d STILL need to find a test that actually produces useful results.

          You’re using meaningless premises to draw an incoherent conclusion.

          >Think of it as an opportunity for kids to wise up.

          Insufferably smug and paternalistic.

        • Brain development doesn’t stop until 25, so yeah, uhm, it is pretty much arbitrary, as shown by the range of laws regarding it in various countries.

          This sounds a lot like the guys who use evo psych to tell us why women can’t write computer programs.

    • obscene has no true meaning (be it in japan or america), it’s just a buzzword to get people jailed for nothing

      cops are worse than the yakuza, at least the yakusa are supposed to have an honor code

      • LULz for actually believing Yakuzas following any code. If they had any real honor code they wouldn’t be so heavily involved in human trafficking and forced prostitution aka sexual slavery. All the supposed Yakuza honor codes are just there for them to believe that they’re somehow better than the rest of the populace.

  • SO the stories of photos being digitalized and turn into anime girls that are almost too good to be true in drawns, are true? This is where those pictures come from that make it into anime and cg visual novel games?
