Attacked at work over a manga in Kyoto, Japan

One might expect, from the name alone, that the Uji Branch of the Kyoto District Legal Affairs Bureau would be a place where all employees have great respect for law and order. The office handles tasks like maintaining family records and processing legal documents for things like real estate purchases and starting new businesses, so following proper procedures should be practically ingrained in the atmosphere.

And yet, a manager at the Uji branch found the conduct of one of his subordinates so inexcusable, so reprehensible, that he felt compelled to put an end to it as quickly as possible, even if it meant resorting to violence. So the manager, a man in his 50s, grabbed his subordinate in his 20s by the upper body and hit him in the waist.

The cause of the subordinate's transgression? Having ruined the last chapters of a manga. It is true that the manga in question was oshi no ko, one of the most popular ongoing manga series that fans love for its dense plot full of twists and turns. On the other hand, attacking a co-worker, and one you supervise, is not an acceptable way to ensure that you can tackle material you haven't yet read while still maintaining all the suspense.

The incident occurred on February 1, when the subordinate started talking about the latest manga developments in the office. According to investigators, the manager at least said “I don’t like spoilers”, but it is unclear whether he said this before or after he exploded in rage and attacked the other man. The manager has since been transferred to the headquarters of the Kyoto District Legal Affairs Bureau.

The subordinate did not suffer any injuries in the attack, but he still filed a complaint with the Kyoto Prefectural Police Station in Uji, which then forwarded the case, with accusations of attack, at the prosecutor's office at the end of April. It remains to be seen whether the case will go to trial, as confessions of guilt are quite common in Japan when the prosecution has a strong case, and it is likely that the accused does not want to end up sitting in a courtroom. audience when the new season of the anime adaptation of oshi no ko has begun.
