Otaku hunters

Tokyo teenagers have been busted for mugging junior high students in the Akihabara district. Apparently, these toughs call their bullying “otaku hunting” because they target young Akiba-kei, a slang term for people who dig the electronics, manga, and anime products sold in Akihabara. According to the Mainichi Daily News, there have been 25 reports of otaku hunting this year. From the Mainichi Daily News: Otaku are weak and they’ve got money, so we went after them,” one of the arrested youths told the police.
