Naruto Fan Fends Off Attacker With Headband




A man minding his own business on the subway train in New York was viciously slashed by a random assailant, leading the innocent man to defend himself with a Naruto headband he wore during his trip to Comic Con and causing some to speculate that the slasher might have had a distaste for the popular ninja series…

The 21-year-old victim was returning home from the New York Comic Con on October 8th via the subway when he was suddenly slashed at by another black man wielding a knife, so sudden was the incident that the 21-year-old was initially oblivious, stating “I look up and see it coming down from this side. I’m like, ‘yo, you slashed me in the face.'”

Claiming the knife-wielder was laughing at him, the man attempted to defend himself with the Naruto headband that was part of his cosplay costume: “I hit him in the face with what I had in my hand and he tried to slice me again”, the assailant then got off the subway at the next stop and fled in an unknown direction.



Grievously wounded, someone from the church that the victim frequently visits was at the station and had a towel to help him reduce the bleeding, with the wound apparently requiring 20 stitches to mend.

While this act of violence is no doubt a common occurrence in crime-laden cities like New York, the 21-year-old victim claims that he forgives his aggressor: “I forgive him. At the end of the day, things happen. I’m thankful to be alive” – with many suspecting the man’s religious affiliation to be the reason for this massive display of encuckedness.

Police are currently on the hunt for the slasher:

    Am I the only one who read the title and thought the guy used his Naruto headband to deflect/guard the attacks? Like the actual way it has been used in the series? That would have been one hell of a story to tell his kids/grandkids.

    Still, happy to hear he’s okay.

    Yep there would be no more "soft targets" if the targets were more commonly armed for self defense.

    Using that logic the infantry doesn't need their guns either since they can get mowed down by heli's in elevated positions or get run down by tank treads.

    You... arn't the brightest bulb in the bunch, are ya? I guess I am gonna have to talk about Gun law in a comment section for an adult anime and relative pop culture website on an article about a guy getting defending himself with a Naruto head band. Well might as well do it for everyone else here.

    1. Your first point is that guns make suicides much more successful. Well no shit, Sherlock. Keeping in mind that the US doesn't have a particularly high suicide rate for developed countries. Even if you flat out banned guns like what happened with Australia's gun buyback in 96, the suicide rate at its conception went from 2 for every 100k to 1 for every 100k. (google it if you don't believe me) That shit is virtually unchanged. And, yes, it is a problem that decent people commit suicide out of depression or whatever reasons that they have, but the fundamental problem ain't guns. Maybe, I don't know, it could be the cause of the depression? Trying to deal with the real problem would make sense here?

    2. You claimed that it is easier to get a gun than a driver's license in some states. Depends on what you call "easy." In most states, it is a fucking bitch. I am going to assume that you have never owned or tried to purchase a gun, but there are a few hoops that you have to jump through. Maybe in a few states like Utah, you might be able to get a gun pretty easily, but only if you have pass all the necessary credentials like not having committed a felony, not abused drugs, are mentally ill, and a shit load of background checking factors. I suppose you have to pass a drivers test to get a license in most states, but you can get it pretty instantaneous in states like Florida. But again, for a US Citizen, driving is a privilege, owning a gun is a right.

    3. You say that the age required to own a gun is lower than the drinking age. Well, you are right. And?

    4. And now your most baseless and dumbest claim that I have heard yet; you say that the 2nd amendment has been reinterpreted to allow UNREGULATED Americans "to purchase all manner of firearm" and then assert that the "regulated militia" crap. First off, it isn't unregulated; there are a lot of regulations especially around ex-convicts and mentally ill individuals. And you can only buy a gun if you are a US citizen (with some very rare exceptions on an individual level). I don't know how ignorant and uninformed you have to be to think that shit ain't regulated. Secondly, you say "all manner of firearms" but there is quite a few limitations on what exactly can and cannot be purchased. Assault rifles, anything with a caliber more than .50, shotguns with a barrel under 18 inches, rifles with a barrel under 16 inches, certain older guns, certain modifiable types of gun, and so much more. Yes, there is an array of guns that can be legally purchased, but it is far more limited than you probably even realize. To be honest, I think you are the kind of moron who sees two of the exact same semi-automatic rifle except one is black, and you would call the black one an assault rifle. Thirdly, you do the same old regulated militia argument. No, your assertion that it is satisfied by the National Guard is indicative of how little you even understand US history and law. I don't even feel like typing up the argument when so many other people have said it far more eloquently than me on the subject, so to everyone reading this, just google it. And don't go to some bullshit media website like Fox or CNN. Maybe watch a few YouTube video debates on the topic if you really want to know. I am just tired of typing up this half assed rant/refutation to this dumbass's claim.

    5. I am gonna assume your general claim here is that "Guns are bad, we should ban them." Right? You seem like that kind of a cunt. If you compare crime rates overall in the US, area's with more gun control tend to have high crime rates with those of lower. If you looked at countries which have stricter gun laws to those with looser, you will notice a similar pattern of lower crimes. Yes, maybe in some of those countries have much lower gun crimes, but they also have a larger spike in other violent crimes which often involves other weapons like knives or acid. Fundamentally, you are only making it harder for law abiding citizens to own guns and (generally) maintain their well being/safety because criminals don't really care about following the law do they? I am done. This guy is just fucking retarded.

    PS: Also read a comment joking about if everyone had a gun in the vegas shooting then it would have better or something. Well, no. The guy had illegally modified a semiautomatic (which is pretty hard to do and, like I said, very illegal). There would be no gun law really viable here to prevent that incident, viably. The guy was mentally deranged. Even if he didn't use a gun, then he would have just used a bomb or a car. It was a tragic incident caused by a very evil man.

    Because the average Americans have easy access to guns, 30,000 Americans become corpses every year directly caused by #GunViolence and #GunAccidents. The right-wing wants to make the list smaller by keeping gun suicides off of that list, but having the gun makes suicide MUCH more successful than literally any other common attempt method, including cutting, poison, leaps from heights, and walking in front of moving vehicles. It is easier to get a gun than a driver's license in most US states. The legal age for gun ownership is lower than the legal age to drink alcohol. The 2nd Amendment of the US constitution has been reinterpreted by the right-wing controlled and NRA paid Congress to allow unregulated Americans to purchase all manner of firearms, even though the 2nd Amendment actually states it is for the necessity of creating a regulated militia - an act that has long since been covered by the formation of the National Guard. The point is that every single day in USA Americans prove they are not capable of responsibly owning guns - and people are DYING because of it.

    that's due to the jap culture.
    the only truly rude people I saw in japan were some blacks that seem to linger outside harajuku. they grabbed jap girls arms to get their attention. lived there for 6 months so saw this often. the non-black foreigners in shinjuku and similar gaigin hang-out areas were the usual loud people that you'd see on a saturday night heading to clubs back at home.

    as long as japan rejects multiculturalism, they'll be reducing the amount of foreign "culture" they import.

    A lot of punk gangs do that. Real hard gangs will tell them to kill certain people or from certain rival gangs. The Mexican Mafia out here in Cali were feared for doing these kinds of things. Sometimes indiscriminate but a lot of times it was rivals to show dominance. Most people end up realizing that it's all brain washing while they are kids. A lot of older members who try to change for the better end up dead or somehow squeeze their way out due to their individual unique circumstances. Though, in this day and age, all these kids pretend banging on half a century old beef they have no part of are stupid as fk. This is the weakest generation of them all and young kids still trying to act hard while all the older folks look at them like they aint shit. They should just enjoy the times they are living in because back in the day you didn't have shit to do and shit was bad. Now kids have a lot to keep themselves occupied.

    Not sure the whole story. If he was muggin him, disrespecting him, or held that naruto headband by the middle making it seem like some kind of bandana, that could lead to something like this.

    If he was seriously just minding his own business, then this guy that cut him is a punk ass bitch. Stick to killin your rivals if you wanna be hard. If not, you a sukka.

    Christianity requires you to forgive those who repent. It specifically forbids you to forgive those who don't repent. Luke 17:3 says: "If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him". Did the slasher repent? No? Then we're still in the "rebuke" phase of things.
