Rurouni Kenshin Creator Busted for Child Porn

MakimachiMisao-Cute-by-Gintarou-Kurousagi108

Nobuhiro Watsuki, mangaka of samurai series Rurouni Kenshin, has been charged with possessing child pornography, bound to be devastating to fans of the long-time series since its newly debuted arc in Weekly Shonen Jump has been suspended as a result.

Tokyo police arrested and charged the 47-year-old mangaka with possession of child pornography.

According to investigators, Watsuki was found to be in possession of multiple DVDs and CD-Rs depicting naked girls as young as 10 after police executed a search warrant on his home in connection with another child pornography case.

The legendary mangaka has admitted to the charges and confessed he “likes girls ranging from the higher end of elementary school to the 2nd year of middle school.”

Weekly Shonen Jump had recently debuted Rurouni Kenshin‘s new Hokkaido Arc, but due to the incident, they are now suspending its serialization; with the publisher stating “this is a rather heavy blow. The author is profoundly reflecting on his actions”.

Should the lolicon mangaka be found guilty, he faces up to a year in prison or a fine of up to ¥1 million, though fans will likely be suffering most of all as the new Rurouni Kenshin has been suspended and there is now no telling when it will start back up again…

    It's like with drugs. Possession is wrong. Buying is wrong. Selling is wrong. But making, well, hardly anyone cares about that part of the supply chain, it seems.

    I've always disagreed with the law against possession simply because it causes far more problems than it solves.

    Possession is kind of bad because it's so easy to plant evidence. Arrest the person then just put it in their pockets/homes or hack their computer and download it, then bam. Instant jail.

    Another problem is that the possession laws keep defense experts from actually evaluating the evidence against the accused. If you can get permission to even look at the evidence, you have to do it in a Government-controlled environment. Note that there are documented cases of "experts" declaring with absolute conviction "this is a child!" and the pictures or video are of an adult porn star. (And I'm not talking about Traci Lord!)

    Possession as a crime was the last thing the Supreme Court okayed and if you read the opinion that allowed it, they weren't sure it was a good idea either.

    The fact that people want to possess this kind of stuff creates a market, which actively causes child abuse.
    No sane person would want legalize possession.
    Think before you speak, because you are 100% wrong on this. This is not the same as legalizing drugs. There are ways to create those without harming anyone. That's not the case for CP.

    Yeah, because the alternative has worked out really well, hasn't it?

    People can't report it to the authorities without handing their ass to them on a silver platter.

    People can't prove they didn't download said images if someone plants it on their computer.

    Although I'm now wondering what would have happened if WannaCry had downloaded CP via Tor until paid to stop instead of encrypting files.

    It's very easy to put CP on their computer and even falsify the dates making it look like it's been there for a while.

    13:11, Even if you are successfully prove your innocence in court - good luck proving it to all those retarded virtue signalers that our society consists of. Now they want nothing to do you with anymore, other than wish you to kill yourself.

    Here is an example of what you get with current laws:

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/computer-virus-victims-framed-for-child-porn-1.851399

    Fiola and his wife fought the case, spending $250,000 on legal fees. They liquidated their savings, took a second mortgage and sold their car.

    ...

    Prosecutors performed another test and confirmed the defence findings. The charge was dropped — 11 months after it was filed.

    The Fiolas said they have health problems from the stress of the case. They said they've talked to dozens of lawyers but can't find one to help them sue the state, because of a cap on the amount they can recover. "It ruined my life, my wife's life and my family's life," Michael Fiola says.

    Fiola was fired and charged with possession of child pornography, which carries up to five years in prison. He endured death threats, his car tires were slashed and friends shunned him.

    If there are tools to put CP onto somebody elses computer you can bet there are also tools that can tell you where it originated from.
    Even regular old porn can be traced to the source PC if you look hard enough...

    And by "making it", "it" means people who makes actual CP involving real children, not drawings or CG of fictional characters who anyone can clearly see they are fictional characters not based on actual real humans.

    Of course only real 3DPD CP counts as cgi and drawn no one is harmed.

    It also only means actual porn involving penetration. Not some silly nudes. Nudes are art, not porn.

    Well generally speaking creating and possession are both bad no matter how you try to slice it even if you aren't involved with the said real little girl. Its Japanese Law to criminalise those who Possess child pornography so his arrest falls into that indefinitely even when he admitted of having interest of underage girls. 2D lolicon/Shota are a exceptional to the law, but he's being locked for the real deal

    How about someone sending you a package with those DVDs and a police investigation team on the same day? Good luck explaining you didn't buy them.

    According to Japanese Law is don't matter how and why you have these dvds just having them alone gets you in Jail. That law went into effect back in 2014 theres even a thread about it here on this very site. Point is explaining isn't going to prevent jail time

    No one "sent" him those DVDs. He confessed to procuring them by his own volition. You seem to be very defensive of this kind of behavior, and maybe even apologetic of pedophiles.

    It's you who isn't using his brain chen. Do you have any evidence, or at least any knowledge of the situation that allows you to assume that he is innocent and confessed to a crime he didn't commit? No, you don't. You are making things up to make a very, very dumb point: "It should be legal because you can be framed."

    A man could sneak intro your house, kill your family, and leave the murder weapon in a nearby trashcan with your fingerprints. Good luck explaining that.

    Your point is dumb because you can be framed for any crime. You can be framed for murder, in your retarded logic then, should murder be legalized?

    @#28 Savage
    Confessing to crimes you didn't do may get you a lighter sentence. Plea bargain and all that.

    Witch hunts never end well, so how about putting down your pitch fork and using the rational part of your brain?

    Kind of like prostitution. Over here, cops arrest the clients but the whores who sell off their body, but they don't actually arrest those women, in fact, they are free to keep selling their body...
    They are providing the "service", yet the cops go after the people "buying" the service instead of going after the ones providing it in the first place.

    The cops don't want problems with their pimp... he's likely their main income source!

    They still need to appear "tough on crime" so, you go for the non-VIP clients.

    It is not that they don not care, but rather that the makers of drugs and child porn are in a different country.
    And if that other country does not care about this type of crime and refuses to cooperate than nothing can be done.

    TIL: Extracting criminals from other countries is impossible.

    Closer to the truth: the guys making the drugs and the child porn are the ruling elite of your own country. Of pretty much every first world country.

    take the example of the technically-but-not-really criminal edward snowden: the us government really wants this guy convicted but he is residing in russia. however the russian government is refusing to arrest and hand him over.

    what other options are there? only kidnapping remains.
    however doing so without permission of the other government violates international law and creates hostility as it is violating another nation's sovereignty and could even be seen as hostile act.

    but maybe i am a moron in which case please do educate me how it is done, especially when the other government refuses to act or cooperate.

    TIL : Extracting criminals from other countries is impossible, only when it does not hurt the lobbying corporate's agenda.

    Look up more cases of how a certain "Most freedom" government tries to falsely extradite people on trumped up charges, but that is not okay when "not free" governments does it.

    Thanks to them, with your tax dollars, they shut down one of the largest cloud service for privately owned anime, manga, doujin, otaku stuff in the world, and this shut down was later deemed illegal, not that it matters now.

    Can't wait for FCC to do their thing on NN, so you fuckers will no longer be around, unless you pay up more to the ISP, just to have the no-longer-existent rights to edgelord posts.

    This is becoming so funny, going the same way as health care. Universal and accessible healthcare and internet for all, with limitations; or extra P2W healthcare and internet, with slightly fewer limitations on paper.

    So funny too, some other fuckers talk about Snowden, Assange, and others in certain ways, yet goes on and on about Cuba, Russia, NKorea, China, etc when they do the same thing or much less.

    Cool story bro, back here in reality, producing is illegal, and some producers have been caught and dealt away with. It's just that there are more buyers than producers, as one producer can sell to hundreds.

    Agreed, I do think the producers need to be aggressively prosecuted first and foremost. Saying that it still isn't an excuse for the consumers not to face consequences..

    What's your country again? It seems you have a different time flow than the rest of the world.

    Child porn is banned in any form worlwide since 2003, if you didn't know. Unless your country is either THAT corrupt or THAT slow.

    I believe he might be referring to Russia, where possession is legal.

    But manufacture and distribution are not.

    That doesn't seem right, given there are lots of countries where you can legally marry children. Though, they probably have a ban on all porn.

    My parents have pictures of naked children, most of them are under the age of 10. I have seen them, they are in some kind of book directly on a shelf in their living room. Sometimes they even show those to other people, that is so disgusting. They must be in a pedophile ring or something.
