did you know the author was arrested?

I think the idea of him being "into murder" just because he had a knife in his car is amazingly farfetched. Not only could it have been there for any number of reasons (self defense, dropped it from a bag, forgot to take it in the house after buying it) but writing about something does not mean you are 'into it' in that way. Has Stephen King ever killed anyone?

Well that's kind of dumb... arresting him for having a knife in his car. I had one in my car for ages and ages just because it fell out when I was moving one time and I kept forgetting to take it out. I really don't think it means anything though. Bit of a reach trying to say he's into murder because he wrote a comic about it and happened to have had a knife in his car at one point in time.

it's only creepy because we know he wrote a manga about murder ;) also...am i the only stupid one who thought ohba-san was a woman??? tsugumi....i just figured it was a female's name...but i also heard it's not the author's REAL name, so it could be....

interesting! i've only ever heard of the name tsugumi for females, regardless of its meaning. many names like tsugumi, nozomi, ayumi, megumi etc that end in 'umi' or 'omi' seem to be more common for females. now that i try, i can't come up with even one male name ending in 'umi' :) any ideas?

Curiouser and curiouser, lol Tatsumi is the only one I can think of, but Ask.com has quite a few; Akifumi, Hidefumi, Hifumi, Ikumi, Izumi, Katsumi, Kazufumi, Kiyosumi... well I got bored after K lol Although the endings are fumi, zumi, sumi, kumi I think, rather than umi. Anyway... Tsugumi, according to Ask.com, IS a girls name. So there you go.

huh ? i have never heard of this news.Anyway,don't simply make assumption just because of a knife.It could be any possibilities.lol.Just because he wrote a thriller gene manga,he is entitled to such accusation ?Don't get me wrong though..i understand your suspicion ^^
