Wow! I'm wondering if this was just another one of those "I wanted to know what it felt like to kill someone" attacks or if there was a connection between these two? Maybe another love triangle?

I agree. In both cases, not very crazy.

"the man, who was dressed all in black and wearing sunglasses"

I noticed that many of these perps like to wear all black in an effort to disguise its appearance or in order to conceal identity, ( perhaps an area bindle tarrier ferreter) which gives wearing all black and sunglasses , a credulous negative stereotype for the unworldly nationals

I always want know what exactly a light injury means. Being stabbed in the neck seems a little more than a light injury.

So, did the victim have a connection with the perp? Was it an anonymous attack? Were words said before? What does the victim do? Were there any witnesses?

Many many questions here......

looks like Japan is not safe anymore. It seems like my country is more safer because people who are stabbed are people who has done wrong to someone.
