The hunt for the otaku is on!


When I say hunt for the otaku, I’m not talking about a vicious gang of theaves, or a hungry Native American tribe looking for dinner, but the police singling out otaku for unnecessary searches. Danny Choo reports that police all around Shinjuku have been stopping otaku, looking for otaku weaponry. According to an unnamed police officer, one must search:

•    People wearing camouflage trousers or jacket
•    People with chains or keys (hanging off trousers)
•    People who look weak
•    People wearing a bandanna
•    People wearing leather
•    Delicious traps (unconfirmed)

The blog Tantei File decided to put this rumor to the test by dressing a person in all the above articles of clothing (picture above). Finally, to spite the police officers if frisked, the man left a note that stated something like “Tough Luck – nothing here!”. In addition to this he drew a stereotypical caricature of a one-eyed, hairless, Japanese man, with a penis for an arm shooting its load all over its own bald head (that’ll show them!).

Like moths to a flame, the man was stopped by two police officers, proving the validity of this rumor. What did otaku do to deserve this type of treatment? We are the least likely group to cause trouble (minus those from 4chan). In conclusion, if you are going to Shinjuku, cosplay; because that wasn’t on the list!
