Twins Sent to Jail for Extorting from Akihabara Otaku

On Tuesday, the Tokyo District Court sentenced a young man and his twin sister to jail time and probation for extorting money from people on the streets of the “Electric Town” neighborhood of Akihabara. According to the verdict handed down by court judge Masahiko Hayashi, the twins “viewed the otaku in Akihabara as easy targets for extortion.”

…the twins carried out their attacks in August when the sister would bump into people on the street and then (joined by her brother) would demand that the person she bumped into apologize. The brother would then demand payments as a method of apology. In total, the twins extorted 110,000 yen (about US$1,000) from two different people…

Ray’s take: 0____O Wow…Anime plots right in the streets of Akiba! In REAL LIFE! Holy Shit! Now don’t let this give you any ideas…

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.

  1. That’s just evil and manipulative. I thought it said twin sisters (plural) at first. Now the story is only 50% as entertaining as it was before.

  2. Now, if it were the twin sisters like the ones in FMP:TSR, I don’t mind being robbed… XD

    Ahh, such is the bliss of youth today.
