[Wonder what he was going to do with the figure?]
Shoplifting is no good and being caught is embarrassing. A 15-year-old tried to steal a Hatsune Miku figure, just outside of Tokyo in the Chiba Prefecture. The figure he tried to take was worth $87. The teen was caught by a part-time clerk (29 years old) and a security guard (32).
What will you do when you are 15, getting caught stealing a anime doll by two adults? Do you call it quits? You don’t know Japan. He decided to attack both of them. As expected, the clerk and security only suffered minor injuries.
Obviously there is some odd craze for this franchise, that is why it was the best selling SEGA game for Q2 in Japan. Keep being crazy Japan, we love it.
