She should be charged; she filed a false police report, which I'm sure is a crime in Japan just as it is in my home country.

But women often seem to get a pass for this sort of thing, so I'm not holding my breath.

Yeah, birds always get treated more leniently by the legal system here, same in my own country, daft innit.

To be fair nobody said this was impossible, just that not instantly feeling a stab wound is perfectly possible as well.
