Saitama prefectural police arrested Yūki Okamura – the real name of illustrator T-Ray – on Wednesday on charges of soliciting a minor to perform sexual acts.
According to police, the 28-year old T-Ray allegedly gave money amounting to 22,000 yen (about US$202) to a 17-year old female high school student from Tokyo at a hotel in Saitama in January to solicit the sexual act. The two allegedly contacted each other through the LINE messaging app in May last year.
T-Ray is a freelance illustrator. He drew art for WHITESOFT's Unmei wa Kimi no Oya o Erabu, Kimi no Yūjin wa Kimi ga Erabu adult PC game. (Warning: link may not be safe for work.) In 2014, he drew the cover art for enka singer Sachiko Kobayashi's "Sachi Sachi ni Shite Ageru" single (seen right), which Kobayashi released during the 86th Comiket event. T-Ray also drew the end card illustration for the second episode of the SHIMONETA anime.
