Fumika Shimizu Retires: “She Joined A Cult Instead!”


Up-and-coming actress Fumika Shimizu has announced her retirement to join the “Happy Science” religious group, commonly labeled a cult – with incredulity at her decision to end her brief career perhaps only matched by the unlikely spectacle of a religious group failing to get its hooks into a potential celebrity ambassador.

The 22-year-old actress (perhaps best known for her role as Yuki Jojima in various Kamen Rider shows and films) was “introduced” to the religion by her parents and apparently practiced it in secret ever since she was born; currently she is working with lawyers in an attempt to end her contract with LesPros Entertainment early, as she apparently cannot handle working a stable job whilst also being religious.

Canceling all future appearances she was going to make on Fuji TV show Nijiiro Jean, Fumika Shimizu stated that she could not continue working due to “poor health” on February 4th, leading to her agency being unable to contact her until recently when she announced her religious devotion.

Founded in 1986, startup religion Happy Science provides various teachings to help followers find happiness, with the group’s founder claiming to be able to channel the spirits of Muhammad, Christ, Buddha, Confucius and any others it can dig up – none of which has endeared it to the big religion mainstream.

Fumika Shimizu was also going to star as the main roles in the Tokyo Ghoul and Ankoku Joshi films later this year, but the fate of both films is unknown at this current point in time due to her new circumstances.

    I will never understand how you can turn your back to a religion that has cute girls dressed up as shrine maiden dancing for the spirit of fertility. Or why I wasn't born in this country...answering their prayers.

    My first thought exactly.

    All this shit is just a big money scheme. May her friends and family pull her out sooner than later.

    According to the article, it's her family that pulled her into it.

    Happy Science is nowhere near Scientology level of evil.

    Seems like it.
    I wonder if this cult was the inspiration for the Cowboy Bebop episode Brain Scratch.

    Yes, and many of those are just tax evasion schemes. They own schools, hospitals, restaurant chains, love hotels etc.

    There's still hope. Like all the producers/salary men at the top, it's still Japan.

    She'll probably be doing porn videos for "supreme master" at one point or the other.

    this is the wrong move to make. they should take a page out of Scientology's playbook and have her remain in the public eye. she can be the tom cruise of this cult and help spread the good word.

    she's useless to them as a civie

    Scientology isnt really a cult, L. Ron Hubbard claimed that religion was just a way to take money from people, so he went out to prove it, and it became successful. Scientology decided to get it's hooks into Hollywood, as they are the most influencial make a ton of money fast.

    the prophet likely wants her and the brainwashing to make her the perfect sex slav...I mean concubine for him will likely effect her so much it cant be hidden if she is in the publics eye.

    Who cares about her? She's not a good actress so.. and maybe even not that famous. **How can people join a cult? Idiocy is unlimited

    I suspect less people care about her per se and more about the fact that she joining a cult is yet another blow to reasonable sanity dealt by religious idiocy.

    This cult might be not so bad, since thanks to it we've got some postponement from all those horrible movies and other live actions.

    Damn it! I wanted to say this. I really wonder if some old fuck in the cult had already gotten to her.

    I remember Ima Real from the same guy who drew Maken-ki and thinking this shit can't be real but later we heard news of exactly the same situation.

    If Trump really had some wisdom, he should make all religions illegal. All them together are humanity`s worst enemy. And none of them have done anything useful, only shifted power and resources from people to all kings of greedy & crazy leaders.

    Atheism is indeed the worst religion of them all. More people died because of atheism in the soviet union&china than in all of history because of all other religions combined.
    Humans do not need religion to be assholes, you know? Your criticism is complete nonsense.

    "More people died because of atheism in the soviet union&china than in all of history because of all other religions combined."
    Even by the most hateful critics of comunism, those figures are at worse 100 million, and that includes even political purges and natural disasters like flooding.
    Meanwhile, bringing chistianity to the american continent "just" killed 95% of the whole population at that time... And that's a single incident of a single religion in a single moment of history...

    Here is the thing Atheism simply means no supernatural stuff, nothing divine.

    It doesn't mean the person is going to be rational. Something even more irrational can take the place of religion. Look at SJWs and their fetish for Islam.

    I don`t defend murderous criminals of any kind, atheistic or religious, when they are mass murdering people.
    Atheists criminals don`t kill because some god wants that, only for other reasons.
    Soviet Union was murderous because they had Stalin and communism as god.
    Atheists have never killed in attempt to spread atheism.
    The thing with nazis, communists, chinese maoists that they didn`t do mass killings because they wanted to spread atheism, but for other traditional reson: power hunger.
    Hitler was roman catholic, Stalin had been student in orthodox monastery, there came their inspiration from.

    Look at all the anti-religion morons having no argument against all the crimes committed without religion in mind. Societies that have no religious authority are demonstrably worse than those who have. That is because ethics mean nothing. Religion is ethics with PUNISHMENT (if you believe in it). Humans will not be deterred from evil if there is no punishment. They will institutionalize evil so that no individual human has to take any responsibility. This happened in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Soviet Union, Maoist China all of which were decisively anti-religious.
    All the "Oh, but christians did x". Yes, but 99% of the time they didn't do it because they were christians. They just happened to be europeans which was the most superior society for most of human history. They didn't bring smallpox to America in the name of Christ.
    If you simpletons can't understand that religion has shaped human society and history from day 1 to now and will continue to do so, even if we don't call it religion anymore, then you are beyond dumb.
