Let me guess...She fell victim to the "If I can't have you, nobody can" syndrome...and when the guilty party is in front of the judge, his defense will be "Yes, I stabbed her, but I had no intention of killing her. I just wanted her to listen to me".

or "I was drunk and can't remember anything". He is "unemployed with no fixed address."

"the two are known to each other"? what an odd expression. since the girl is still conscious, i'm sure she must have told them how they were known to each other. kyodo, once again your news articles leave much to be desired.

Way too close to home (literally). I walk past that place every day, and did so about an hour before this incident happened. The guy was her boyfriend according to Japanese news sources

Note to the culprit. Women are meant to be LOVED not stabbed.

It's disappointing this loser will be tried as a minor and will receive nothing more than a strong warning. He's not even liable to pay her hospital bills for any reconstructive surgery she may need. Just another cowardly punk product of the 'no consequences generation' in Japan.

I hope she will overcome this traumatizing ordeal and justice will be served to this coward.

Disillusioned is right. His parents will bow and apologize, then pay her medical bills and "gomenasai" money. He'll walk away with a smirk thinking, "I still have time to do this one more time"

The report on TV quoted the perp as explaining his motives "I loved her so much I couldn't help myself"
