An otaku does it again
Who in their right mind would kill a JK (joshi-kosei/high school girl)?
If you're going to kill someone, you should kill yakuza not JK
What a waste of a flag...
Looking at his age, I bet he's a Love Liver
Anime otakus are going to take the flames again!!
Poor girl, her future is gone now! Can't believe it!
What an idiot. That's all I can say. Not only that, we're going to be seeing more anime bashing like the commenter above said.
