Prosecutors Drop Charges Against Man Who Assaulted Subordinate Over ‘Oshi no Ko’ Spoilers

Blaming the entire legal system of a country may be excessive, particularly if you are not an expert in the subject. However, it is undeniable that Japan has made some questionable rulings. Recently, a new verdict has surfaced which appears to follow a similar pattern.

The charges against the 50-year-old man who assaulted his coworker over spoilers for “Oshi no Ko” have been dropped by prosecutors.

On February 1st, 2024, outside of work hours at the Uji Branch of the Kyoto District Legal Affairs Bureau (Uji City, Kyoto Prefecture), a male employee became furious after his subordinate mentioned the recent updates in “Oshi no Ko.”

In April, the case was referred to the Uji Police Station of the Kyoto Prefectural Police after he grabbed the man by the collar and kicked him in the waist.

The male employee in his 50s at the Kyoto District Legal Affairs Bureau, who was referred to the prosecutor’s office, was not indicted by the Kyoto District Public Prosecutors Office.

Despite the 4th being the deadline, the Kyoto District Public Prosecutors Office ultimately chose not to indict him, without providing a clear explanation for their decision.

Despite the support from some otakus who argue that the man deserved the punishment for spoiling the story, inflicting physical harm on another individual is unjustifiable.

It is difficult to comprehend why the court has chosen not to charge this man, and the rationale behind this decision has not yet been disclosed. We can only remain optimistic that there is a legitimate justification for dismissing the accusations against the man who physically attacked his employee.
