Nobuhiro Watsuki, Rurouni Kenshin Creator, Arrested for Child Pornography
Japanese mangaka and Rurouni Kenshin creator Nobuhiro Watsuki has been reportedly arrested for child pornography.
According to the story, the creator had been caught with child porn dvds by the authorities after a tip about the author’s involvement in another case entirely.
The creator of Kenshin Himura was also reported to have preyed on elementary students.
Details are scarce but Yahoo Japan is reporting that when tried, Watsuki may have to face one year jail time for his crimes.
Sheusha, the company that publishes Watsuki’s work had no comment over the crime.
While this is good, it would also be bad for manga fans who are just enjoying the return of Rurouni Kenshin with a new arc that was launched in September.
