Touhou Otaku “Threatened To Burn Seiyuu Alive”

reimu-bathing

A Touhou otaku has been arrested for threatening to pour kerosene on a young woman who’s voice work in a doujin video apparently did not meet the standards and style he expected of Reimu-portrayal.

The 26-year-old Aichi prefecture NEET made a series of posts to 2ch in which he threatened by name a 22-year-old part-time seiyuu, saying he would “douse her in kerosene and watch her fry.”

His anger apparently stemmed from the amateur voice work she did for a MikuMiku Dance level CG video posted on NicoNico Douga.

In other posts he made he said she “has totally damaged the character” and “deserves divine retribution,” and seems to have been behind a one-man campaign to defame her and leak her personal information as widely as possible.

He admits the offence, and now faces charges of intimidation.

The case also seems to highlight 2ch’s smoothly operating conveyor belt running from otaku bedrooms to police cells – a post made late in the afternoon of the 14th saw him locked up and national news by the morning of the 16th.

    He also forgot to get the help of Wizard Aliens who would have given him an 8th proxy, a proxy of such power he'll never be traced.

    You are speaking entry level proxies, my friend. You don't have very much faith in the younger crowd!

    Couldn't he just leave a "wow what a shitty voice job" like the rest of us?

    Incidentally, I'll have to remember this for the Social Justice Blogger types who think critique and cynicism are srs busns.

    Maybe all that KNN Aneki stuff on Nico got into his head.

    KNN Aneki has become some sort of a minor meme on Nico ever since the hilariously bad doujin voice work were featured as the voice track for some guy's MMD animation, which was no doubt made in the spirit of mocking the voice actresses. It has reached a point where many videos featuring Reimu had tags 'KNN Aneki', much in the same vein as Marisa and 'Ma-su Aneki'.

    Maybe he got sick and tired of seeing those people mocking his favorite character in such a way. In that respect, Americans ain't that much better either. Didn't Ben Affleck get death threats too for playing upcoming Batman movie?

    GTS has been a standard quote denotation since the days of newsgroups. Decades later emails are still coded to quote with greater-than-symbols appended. I hope you don't credit twitter with the above addressee line, either.

    On the other hand GP post was also doing that tired, inarticulate bullet shit.

    Making treats because you don't like some video?
    Making treats while looking like you mean it?
    Making treats on 2ch?
    Making treats while posting from your real IP

    I'll assume that you really meant treats since you said it five times in the same post. I personally love treats.

    "she “has totally damaged the character”"
    Is it even possible to damage character which characteristics are made up by the community.

    I can understand being annoyed if a voice doesn't suit a character, or just done poorly, but death threats? Leaking personal information so people can harass the voice actor?

    No excuses, this psycho deserves to be locked up.

    Her name is Rio Hazuna.

    Cookie☆ (クッキー☆) is a nickname given to a fanmade animated drama “Marisa and Alice’s cookie kiss” (魔理沙とアリスのクッキーKiss), which features many girl characters from Touhou Project voiced by Her.

    This video gets a cult following among fanatics of the Japanese gay porn. They filled comments in the video with dirty jokes, and began making many parody videos including sexual contents taken from gay porn videos.

    Since then She become target for online mockeries, harassment, insult, persecution, bullying, mockery, & threat by these fanatics.

    These gay fanatics are seen by others normal Japaneses as dirty scum although. They are seen as being worse than dirtiest western "/b/tards" in Japan.

    "They filled comments in the video with dirty jokes, and began making many parody videos including sexual contents taken from gay porn videos."

    I wish they stopped doing that in otomads,i mean it rarely sounds good especially the japanese gay porn one though some otomads with that gay porn are acceptable because it sounds okay but seriously it usually ruins the whole otomad vid for me when they show it and it doesn't sound as good as anime or this doujin style vids pics voices,gachimuchi is in it's own league and can be acceptable.

    These damn shitty part time seiyuu!

    Why I'll...I'll...run for office, get elected president and pass a bill authorizing Japan to produce nuclear armaments! Just watch me! Now the entire world shall know the suffering of my soul caused by an improper voice role for a favorite anime character.

    You guys need to start treating these creepy obsessive otakus the same way that Salem, Massachusetts treated "witches" in he 1600's.

    I am a proud Touhou fan and this guy is a complete retard! Lock him in jail and throw away the key.

    P.S. I agree her voice is nowhere fit to the character (she also speaks "da ze", is it a parody?), but this is no excuse for threatening the poor girl.

    such a sleazeball should rot in a cell. what kind of
    damaged mind can think such a stupidity is necessary just because he disliked the seiyuu's performance?
    really it takes a severely damaged and traumatized
    mind.

    heh. Reminds me of how alot of people dont enjoy englished dubbed media. Not every voice actor is good or bad, it doesn't give the right to harass them, despite our own preference.

    indeed, you can simply say I don't like the voice acting, and try to find and alternative, like reading subtitles instead.

    Yeah... It's certain pretty terrible work on Reimu...

    Then again, the only other time I heard Reimu was when she's voiced by Nakahara Mai...

    I was actually hoping the headline was about Mai Nakahara, as I really can't stand her voice, especially when she starts getting all screaming and screechy, which she does in every role she plays. Fingernails on a chalkboard.

    I wouldn't go so far as to start threatening to burn anybody alive, though. Just downvote the video and move on with your life, buddy.

    No she's not. She does not know what "diction" means and her acting is absolutely monotone, just trying to cram as many lines as possible in the minimum time possible. But her voice is not bad, I'd send her back to seiyuu school and give her a narration course and then she probably could land some pro level jobs...
