Never heard about that manga. I guess it's a shame for all the readers because they most likely won't get any more manga but I'd say that guy gets what he deserves.

I read the first chapter of it, it’s about a girl who wants to be an actress but can’t feel emotion or something like that?

Definitely a shame if this is why the series gets cancelled, but WSJ shouldn’t support the guy if he’s doing stuff like that.

urgh. This sounds terrible. I think I heard of the manga before. Generally I think high of mangaka and other people involved in the creation of anime and manga. Such a person committing a crime like this is really unacceptable. Junior high school students are kids! I hope those kids are not too mentally scarred. I'm glad the police caught him and I hope he can't harm anyone ever again.

Never heard of the manga as well but damn. Because it reminded of what some people said about Namikawa Daisuke (the famous seiyuu) being in a relationship with a teenager as well? Though, I'm not sure if it's just a rumour or not.

I’ve heard of the manga. It’s high up on @Zanekin’s ranking list

This guy gets what he deserves. He’s 29 years old. That’s not even a case of statutory anything and being like a teenager himself. Consent is important and those females aren’t old enough to legally consent regardless of what they’re thinking. It’s an abuse of power. Ugh. I remember all the grown ass men hitting on me when I was in middle school. 🤮

It's an actress who uses method acting to an insane degree. She can feel emotions but she can't act if she doesn't understand someone's point of view or if it's something she hasn't done before (fallen in love, seen someone murdered, etc.).

It's an amazing series and it's a shame it'll likely be stopped. I will say this, the art is the best part of the series and it's done by a girl he works with who's only 23 (she was 21 when the seried started I believe).

Ah yeah, that sounds more like it. I only read chapter 1 so I don’t remember much.

Was the series about to get an anime adaptation? Unless it’s already in the works that might end up not happening

I've a low tolerance for sexual offenders, especially the children stuff, good riddance! I say, lock him and drop him in the sea.

Assuming he is guilty here, I don't really follow news of any kind, I think the world has gone crazy and it drives my blood pressure up and I need good alcohol and bucket full of chicken to deal with that shit. :shinono:
