Hirohito Nakanishi
Yes ladies, even this guy can have a creepy side.

According to the arrest report, the incident took place on January 28 at around 8:10 AM. From his second-story balcony, he extended a fishing rod over to his neighbor’s balcony (who is in her 50s), in an attempt to steal her undergarment that she had hung out to dry. There was no fishing line or hook on the rod, and it’s believed that he was trying to latch the pole onto the undergarment. The perpetrator claimed “I was just extending my rod.” Yukihito Nakanishi was the 7th draft pick for Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters in 1995. He was designated for assignment and left the team in 2000. Reactions online:

In her 50s… He extended his rod, huh? I seriously think he was just doing some maintenance on it Who asked you to be funny? What’s this anime called?

55 Year-Old Woman Pretends to Be a College Student, Tricks a Man into Giving Her $50,000

Miyazaki, Japan: an unemployed 55 year-old woman has been arrested for fraud, in which she tricked a man into wiring her money. She pretended to be a young college student that was no longer receiving money from her parents, and even played the role of a strict mother that disapproved the relationship for added realism.

According to the Miyazaki Police Department, the incident took place during 2010, between January and September. The 55 year-old woman pretended to be a 20 year-old student at a prestigious medical school, and through an online dating service got in contact with a man in this 20s (at the time a college student) in Hyogo prefecture.

She sent him emails like “let’s be together in the future,” to give the impression that they were working toward marriage. He sent her 6,000,000 yen (over $49,400) over 150 transactions to the woman’s daughter’s bank account.

Women may be bombarded with creepers online, but be careful men! You’re not off the hook either.

The much anticipated resurgence of the Hollywood adaptation of AKIRA may be going into hiatus once again.

Under Warner Bros., the movie has been in pre-production for a few years, suffering several major delays due to changes in director.

In 2011 Jaume Collet-Serra was chosen to direct, whose directing credits include House of Wax, Orphan, and Unknown.

During a recent interview for his latest film Run All Night, director Collet-Serra was asked if any progress has been made on AKIRA, to which he replied: “No, no. There’s nothing.”

He added that he has been making movies nonstop for the past few years, that it won’t be for a while until he’s ready to go back to work again.

When asked if AKIRA is going to get released at all, he replied that “it’s a Warner Bros. question.”

Ex-Girlfriend Sneaks in Secret Ingredient for a Special Valentine’s Chocolate

Sometimes when it’s over, it isn’t over! This girl just couldn’t forget about her ex-boyfriend, so she decided to make him a special Valentine’s Day chocolate with a lovely twist.

Original conversation and my translation below:

Good morning!!!
And, Happy Valentine’s!!!

G, good morning!
Happy Valentine’s!

Oh, thanks again for the chocolates yesterday! I didn’t expect a letter, it was nice of you! It was good so I ate them all lol

Haha, you ate them so fast!
Are them all already??
Oh, sorry about the letter, my handwriting is so bad! (-ω-; )

Yeah, ate them lol
No way, your handwriting was fine!

I’m sorry to bring up the past again, but

I don’t know how to thank you, especially since I’m the one that ended the relationship…

Hehehe ( *´ `*)
I’m looking forward to White Day!! ♡

But you know, about that…

The chocolate you ate, I wanted to put my blood in it since I heard that it works like a love spell. Maybe it was a joke though.

But I thought, blood’s a bit much…

So you know, we’ve kissed right? So kinda like a replacement, I snuck in some of my saliva. Seems like you didn’t notice. Sorry!

Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything? lolol

I felt bad keeping it a secret, so I thought I’d apologize first! Really sorry!


I still love you. I can’t forget you.

I can’t forget you, so that’s why I’ve been wanting to stay friends with you, dragging this relationship. But just friends is tough.
Sorry to be dramatic. I sound a little crazy. I know that it’s one of the reasons you dumped me.

But you know, you’re still kind to me as always, we’re still friends right? That means you like me at least a little, right? You were happy about Valentine’s too! So I want you to think it over, if we can date again…

Yes, this really is a thing.
Yes, this really is a thing.

Danny Choo, everyone’s favorite professional otaku, has found a less-than-perfect Sailor Moon clone in Taipei, Taiwan:

Sailor Moon TaiwanDanny notes that it seems to be in a doctor’s office, perhaps to keep the kids “happy” while visiting.

It looks to be a refurbished unit from Japan that had a very bad paint restoration, to the point that she’s no longer blonde and Luna became a dog.
