I recently learned that the stereotypical "Japanese Fan Girl" is not some sort of mythical sasquatch of popular culture. I know they exist because my work somehow attracted the attention of one.
She showed up online one day and started posting weird fan-art and (thanks to google translate) weirder messages.
It was amusing, if a little creepy. Especially when someone found a few pictures she had drawn of a decidedly underage version of myself being violated by tentacles.
I let that slide because, hey; she was a Japanese Fan-girl. They're innately odd.
But then it turned out she was actively following me around the internet, frequenting the same sites and forums as me. Specifically B3TA; a place where you really shouldn't go unless you speak English, have a tough skin and an understanding of serrated British humour.
Fan-girl did not, and was subsequently torn to shreds.
Despite everyone's advice, however (including mine and most of the B3TAns) she kept going back. As such, I don't have much sympathy.
You may have seen a few of her posts appear on my DA gallery in which she rants on about the "evil B3TA people". The most recent of which was in regards to the latest internet meme "Helicopter Cat", to which she took much umbrage.
After my latest Spider & Scorpion strip, in which I used that meme, Fan-girl went bat-sh*t. She apparently took it as a personal attack on her and started using photos from my family's facebook page in sinister collages tagged "death is eternal".
Obviously she's now being banned left-right-and-centre, so, hopefully we've seen the last of her.

I guess this is a cautionary tale; Japanese Fan-girls are scary.

interesting... seems as if you must stereotype someone into a singular group... typical creepy Japanese fan-girl, no... slightly creepy and odd girl that has particularly different tastes from many, yes... try to stereotype into the correct grouping... and she is actually a rather good artist if you ask me personally ^_^ by the way, I am not Japanese.

So is there an achievement unlocked for getting this note? Something like "Collateral Drama Damage"?

Some issues this person has, I see that I'm not the only one getting this message:

"Do you remember his journal?
[link]
I am his journal's Japanese fan girl.
I came back to dA.
and Please see it. He made this in recently.
[link]
I like his some artwork. BUT I HATE his personality.
I am his stalker? NO WAY. Its INSULT!!
I just wanted say. You are innocent. I'm sorry."

I'm not sure if I should respond though...

Yeah, responding just might make "less innocent." She might start bothering you a bit too

I think she meant that she is innocent, but I suspect she used google translate and if you've used it before, you know it's not really good at making reasonable sentences...

Y'know, I actually didn't take that into consideration. Thanks for bringing that to my attention
