Police on Friday re-arrested an overzealous fan of idol group AKB48, adding to previous charges of theft for which he is already on trial. Masayuki Fujioka, 35, is suspected of committing 151 robberies in four prefectures. He was quoted by police as saying, "I needed money for train fare and concerts so I could chase AKB48."

According to police, Fujioka illegally trespassed in a construction site in Tochigi City on the night of Oct 6, breaking into a vending machine and stealing 4,700 yen. Authorities say that, since around December 2002, Fujioka committed 151 robberies in Tochigi, Saitama, Ibaraki and Gunma prefectures, stealing a total of 4.1 million yen.

Ha ha.

Don't AKB48 have that hometown Akihabara bar where they always perform?

If you need to steal to chase AKB48, you should start stalking Magibon instead.

A 35-year-old guy 'chasing' AKB48 is lame. Stealing to do it is really lame.

Obsession with a "lip syncing" group is a mental disorder.

I thought this group was for teenagers too until I seen a publicity appearance while out shopping. The group was surrounded by business men in suits and men in their 30's. I felt sick at the sight of that. Old men perving over underage girls.

gogogo, so all that jumping up and down and shaking and as often JT quotes 'prancing around' or something like that is for the 40 year olds? I was just reminded of the racist jokes of Russel Peters about this.

Yep the worst part is that the 40 year olds in the audience also dance along to the same dance moves. It's why you NEVER see shots of the audience.

Ok, now that makes sense. So the Jguys remain teens forever. No way I want to see them making those dance moves and make a fool of themselves. What is it with them? Why can't they dance like other people? Maybe that is the cure for them. Let them dance like that till dawn and sweat it out and get over their frustrations. Atleast, that will stop them from having lunatic fantasies with dolls and girls.

No they are not teens, they are 40 year old bald men perverts that live with their mother gawking and drolling over the young girls. It is a major problem in Japan.
