Over 300 school uniforms from around the country found in man's apartment

29 Comments

An enormous amount of girl's clothing has been discovered at the home of a man who was arrested for committing obscene acts toward women, police said Tuesday. The clothing is said to have been stolen from schools in a total of 11 prefectures, with some coming from as far north as Iwate and as far south as Kagawa.

Tsuyoshi Gokadani, 28, an unemployed resident of Fujisawa City, was arrested for embracing a 33-year-old woman from behind then stealing 6,000 yen in cash on a road last February in Atsugi City. Upon searching Gokadani's home, police found over 300 items of clothing from high school girl's uniforms and PE outfits.

When questioned, the suspect stated that, "I stole the uniforms on trips around the country to places like Iwate and Kagawa." He was quoted as saying that he likes high school girls and that he felt excited when breaking in to schools. Police suspect he may have committed many more similar crimes.

Excellent - another graduate from the school of manga and J-porn.

The J-police must compete with each other for the biggest underwear haul instead of the biggest drug bust.

"The Sakura police seized 30kg of uniforms with an estimated street value of over 100 million yen in the country's 3rd largest ever panty raid."

get real people of this country. The root cause is as mentioned by Wakarimasen, manga and J-porn. This guy was caught but how about those sitting with their laptops and searching for potential victims through dubious dating sites, sns and the like.Was he a divorcee who takes care of his children over the weekend, works hard 9 to 5 for his company and the rest of the time, busy with his notorious hobby!

What will they do with the uniforms? sell them on yahoo auctions? 0__0 And if manga and (J-)porn would be the cause most men would be like that.

Do not see where manga comes into this. J-porn, sure, Hentai maybe, but not regular ole' Shonen Jump or nothing like that. But maybe I am normal and just like to read old issues of Slam Dunk, DBZ or Kenshin. Do not know how Fist of the North Star (not SJ) would make me want to steal underwear.

J's have demonized those good comics into something else. Sazae san was so innocent and fun; today you find manga girls in school uniforms and oversized, and disproportionate breasts,showing their undergarments. Or octopus making love..Duh Japanese men are so hard up for fun that these images turn them on? Seperate manga from porn.

Many J-men are either free-lancing or jobless and have a lot of time, get money from somewhere for their favorite past time. Does not make sense.

From the outside looking in (ie don’t live in Japan and not a paedo) it seems to me that it might help if the sailor uniform was phased out. As far as I can make out it’s this uniform that seems to add to the appeal of Japanese schoolgirls. Most kids in UK schools now wear trousers and embroidered sweatshirts, regardless of gender. Not particularly smart but certainly unremarkable.

This sex maniac guy probably would rape someday, so someone got to watch this guy all the time after he is released.

Gaze into your crystal ball did you? Might as well fear a 28 year old shop lifter will go on to successfully rob Fort Knox!

The article does not even say he had any. I guess you and Wakarimasen have a crystal ball too?

Look, all red blooded males get ideas like this all over the world, and they do not need manga or porn. The difference is that Japanese males are not discouraged from them like other guys are. The solution is to have their male friends making strong statements about this sort of behavior, calling it cowardly, weak, creepy and guys who do it losers and pervs and question their manhood. Most of us got this in our teens. But I think there is not so much stigma like that in Japan. Its just a simple crime, not a complete shame.

Even so, its not really all that common. Maybe more common than other places but not epic, nothing near in proportion to the poliferation of manga and J-porn either, so blaming them is pretty silly. And no one was harmed in the pursuit of his illegal hobby, so why so worried about it?

Far more worrisome is his robbery and assault of the woman. While it is possible he might escalate further, at 28 I think its kind of unlikely. But just the continuation of that sort of behavior is worrisome enough. I am glad he was caught for those reasons.

likeitis, what do you really mean by this? Are you sympathising with this character? Men all over the world like women and they have their special likes and dislikes. There is a time and place for everything. But what we find here is sex and porn all over, day in day out. The women here foolishly exhibit everything.Hey, people all over the world are the same. But there are certain ethical ways of doing things. No one was hurt by his illegal hobby? You have to be a woman to know what it feels like when someone touches you when you really do not expect it. Even among animals, there are certain accepted behaviors. Manga is wonderful, but then why defile that too!

Well so far as we know he went no further than stealing HS girl's clothes. So while a wierdo he may be the calls for castration are a little extreme.

well, there is still enough room for speculation for raping young girls.

jeese, I think this guy should get some psychological help with his sexual frustrations.

Wakarimasen at 02:37 PM JST - 21st April “Excellent - another graduate from the school of manga and J-porn.”

Come on! The guys a nut but beyond that your speculating. Normally if the police find any serious amount of porn or hentai in the accused freaks home they say so & the media always report it. But here there is no mention of it & if this freaks managed to amass much in the way of school girls clothes he would have surely also had quite a collection of porn or whatever. He’s just another otaku collecting things, so in this case he’s weird, but they all are in one way or another.

As for pointing the finger at manga for making Japanese men (& women) strange. Get real, that’s like saying Popeye made Americans violent & you would never do that would you?

Obviously school security is uniformly lax throughout the country. Scary situation.

I really can't see how those sailor suits turn guys on. Some who have shortened their little plaid skirts I can see as being a turn on since you get more to peek at.... Oh no... It must be the manga porn on the shelf of my local conbini making me say that...

I love the way self perceived "normal" people refer to these types of characters as "weird" "perverted" or the like..in some desperate attempt to raise themselves out of their own mire of "perversions" for a brief time.I makes me larff..

womanforwomen: likeitis, what do you really mean by this? Are you sympathising with this character?

Well, maybe if you read my post you would understand. What I meant by that is that that is the general viewpoint in Japan, and that explains why this sort of thing might be more common here.

The women here foolishly exhibit everything.

Foolishly? Look, you can practice your own brand of prudishness all you like, and think yourself extremely clever for doing so. But leave Japanese women alone. They are not bothing you, nor do I find them to be foolish at all. What I find them to be is not nearly as selfish as some women when it comes to relations with men. That may equate to foolishness to you, but I find it nice and refreshing. And I do not think I am alone, so I think Japanese women benefit for it. Which brings into question who the real fools are.

No one was hurt by his illegal hobby? You have to be a woman to know what it feels like when someone touches you when you really do not expect it.

Again, read the post. His hobby was collecting the clothes. I decried grabbing people as the part we need to be most concerned about and separated that from the hobby. But no, you don't really need to be a woman to know, but I can agree that it certainly helps. For than, I am most glad he was stopped. The stealing also had to be stopped, but I see no reason to get overly upset about it.

I think this guy was born sick, or unemployment drove him towards the nut tree. He likes high school girls, and he made security guys with red noses. Well at least he didn't injure any of the lovely girls that they don't belong to him. Will he get suspended sentence?

They are not bothing you,

No they are not, but I think i bother them too much. What can i do, I look a bit like Catherine Zeta Jones and I hate it when even J women stare at my ......

hmmm I have not heard of men from other countries having such hobbies, eventhough I repeat they are the same all over the world with desires and fantasies.

“They are not bothing you,” “No they are not,”

It looks like they are on this subject. You don’t post very often do you? But on this subject…….

“No they are not, but I think i bother them too much. What can i do, I look a bit like Catherine Zeta Jones and I hate it when even J women stare at my ...... “

Men stare, better that than they either don’t see you at all or go too far surely?

“hmmm I have not heard of men from other countries having such hobbies, eventhough I repeat they are the same all over the world with desires and fantasies.”

Then you have lead a very sheltered life, there are some remarkably strange men in the world & they have some remarkably strange “hobbies”.

I just do not get your posts at all. So men are the same but they are not? We all have weird tentacle fantasies? Is that what you are getting at?

Please enlighten me as to what other nationality men collect girl's uniforms as a hobby.

Well I cannot do that so specifically. However, I can point out that American men collecting women's panties as trophies is widely portrayed in movies. And that is a lot more directly sexual than a uniform.

Who really cares anyway? The greatest damage done was the theft as far as this particular "hobby" is concerned. Next would be the trespassing.
