Prosecutors Drop Charges Against Man Who Assaulted His Subordinate Over ‘Oshi no Ko’ Spoilers

Pointing fingers at the law of an entire country seems a little excessive, especially when you aren’t qualified in the subject. However, we have to agree that Japan passes some of the more questionable judgments. And a new ruling has come to light, and it seems to follow the same course.

Prosecutors have decided to drop the charges against the 50-year-old man who assaulted his coworker over “Oshi no Ko” spoilers.

On February 1st, 2024, while chatting outside of work hours at the Uji Branch of the Kyoto District Legal Affairs Bureau (Uji City, Kyoto Prefecture), a male became enraged when his subordinate mentioned the developments in “Oshi no Ko.”

He grabbed the man by the collar and kicked him in the waist. The case was referred to the Kyoto Prefectural Police Uji Police Station in April.

The Kyoto District Public Prosecutors Office decided not to indict a male employee in his 50s at the Kyoto District Legal Affairs Bureau who was referred to the prosecutor’s office.

By the 4th, the Kyoto District Public Prosecutors Office had decided not to indict him. The reason for the decision was not made clear.

While many otakus support the judgment by saying that the man deserved it for revealing the spoilers, it is wrong to cause bodily harm to another person.

Now, why the court has decided not to indict this man is beyond understanding, and the reason for the same hasn’t been revealed yet. We can only hope that there is a solid reason for dropping the charges against the man who assaulted his subordinate.
