Fame has its consequences. Anime Voice actor Kaito Ishikawa who is the voice of Genos from One Punch Man threw multiple shuriken and injured an intruder last night before police arrived at the scene only to find the intruder screaming with pain.
Japantoday reports that the intruder came into his house while he was gaming and tried to take steal some of his collectables.
He then told the police that “I managed to convince the intruder to put his knife down and talked him out of the idea. But he was acting aggressive even after he put the knife down so I picked it up some display shuriken I had next to me and threw them at his leg hoping it wouldn’t cause a death”.
He quickly called the police within seconds of shooting the intruder and took care of his wound until the police and ambulance came to deal with the situation.
According to JapanToday the intruder was mega fan of Kaito Ishikawa character Genos from One Punch Man. Described as “single, lonely and disturbed” with an unusual infatuation with male anime characters.
The Voice Actor was woken at 4:40am on June 16th by “the sound of breaking glass and a gunshot”.
A search of the intruders cellular phone identified various notations identifying Kaito Ishikawa by name. Furthermore, threatening statements were recorded by the intruder and directed toward Kaito Ishikawa, for example:
“I want his collection, I want Kaito Ishikawa’s collection all for me”
Detectives searching the intruders home say he was gamer and YouTube streamer, a big anime figure collector and they seized a number of items (“two cellphones, a laptop, two tablets and an XBox gaming system”) as evidence, and “believe that evidence related to the planned burglary will be found.”
Kaito Ishikawa was not harmed during the incident.
