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...

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...

You know... I have zero idea on how Helicopter cat could be seen as an attack...
Then again I'm not a fanboy.
or fangirl, obviously...
Or Japanese for that matter...

And I will personally attest to "cannibal zombie bunny nuns" being unstable. Though my personal experiences never led to depictions of underaged tentacle rape upon my person... Did it lead to anything else? Not that I'm aware of! I think it's better that way anyways...

Don't believe I have ever run into them. I have run into fellow art lovers who were obsessed with anime but no actual “Japanese Fan Girl”. Despite the fact I have run into several people from said continent.

Come now, a mighty Brit such as yourself can surely handle one Japanese fan-girl! Especially with your strange collection of fantastic weapons!

..... Wait a tick. Is this girl cute at least? And of age? if so, then If I were you I would seize the opportunity and teach her not to take offense at devastatingly cruel humor.

Most fanboi's and fangirls are insane. Ignore them. Let reality sort them out. Or, if you get death threats, send the police after them. And then ignore them. If they show up on doorstep, shoot them. Preferably through the door.

note to jack.... anyone growing up in a Country that has a difficult time with defeat and has suffered the atrocity of having two of it's major cities atomically reduced to ashes after which the economic and cultural values of said conqueror are ungraciously rammed down its throat may create the perfect breeding environment for just such a creature.... in short... there are many strange things that come out of Japan nowadays.... this is one of them.... attract with caution....

disclaimer. this is not a reflection on the whole of Japan... just certain social segments of it...

Man, not one person posted a link to her.... (Well,the B3TA profile was gone).

You should tell her that she's not a True fan if she doesn't love EVERYTHING you do.

Anyway, At least your stalker was of the appropriate gender. I had one who was a GUY, who has a sexual attraction to inflatable pool toys. He liked to make fake web pages about me, then he'd change them and deny he'd done it, until he put up the next one.

I don't get it. I can maybe see how somebody might find Helicopter Cat in bad taste, but a personal attack?

But then, I'm trying to find LOGIC in a crazy Japanese fangirl's actions.
