This is the third time something like this has happened with a Shonen Jump writer. This is not okay

Yeah I was just saying, an incident like this happening once? Not ok, but you can give them the benefit of the doubt and say that one person is an outliner. THREE people though? Nah, WSJ’s management is sketchy as hell

1) how is management fault? are they wizards that can see the future or people's heart
2) wait till the guy at least gets convicted before throwing stones and setting up the cross.

Three people in 50 years is a problem with management? Are you sure it's not just that 3 of the countless mangaka happened to be bad people?

1) In the previous scenarios, both mangakas were either given more work, or allowed to continue to work like nothing happened, hence the sketchiness.
2) Not throwing stones at anyone. He’s either guilty or he’s not, but it doesn’t take a genius to know that they probably arrested him because the evidence is damning. And when you have allegations like this coming out consistently for the same offence from the same work place, eye brows will undoubtedly be raised whether there’s any weight to the suspicion or not. It doesn’t help when the company engages in the previous issue already mentioned.
Either way, this is such a terrible state of affairs for the fans. Also worried about Shiro, who undoubtedly will get linked to all of this, despite her career just taking off.

I feel bad for the victims and Usazaki, where she may lose her job because of it.

According to the article, he admitted to doing it

Matsuki told police "there's generally nothing incorrect" with their accusations.

Three reported. Japan's not good about policing sex crimes.

Who is the third one? I only know of this and the Kenshin creator.

At the very least its gonna go on hiatus while they figure this shit show out. I doubt its coming back though, Act Age isn't popular enough that it can survive this kind of blowback.

I guess that's another manga from Jump I'll never read, along with Toriko and Kenshin. Hopefully it'll kill any chance of an anime adaptation, at least for a while. And let's hope the editorial department won't save his ass like with similar authors before, but I won't hold my breath.
