I interrupt the usual anime fanfare with a disturbing news from the holy land of the otakus.
Just yesterday, A man plowed into shoppers with a truck Sunday and then stabbed 17 people within minutes, killing at least seven of them. His reason? “He said he was tired of life. He said he was sick of everything“. I can’t even think of anything funny to say, other than how disturbing this is and how the media will undoubtedly blame animes like Higurashi for such an influence. More details of the incident can be found here:
Let’s all offer a moment of silence and prayers for the 7 people who died, and the 10 others speedy recovery.
