Nothing surprising about that I thought. Certainly nothing untrue or particularly offensive?
However, denizens of 2ch were trolled with a version more like this:
That may or may not be nearer to what he actually thought, but it's certainly not what was printed! Needless to say: ?I was stuck on there with a horde of shitty Jap self-proclaimed musicians, and there was a group of girls on there churned out of some factory called AKB48.
This is no joke, there were like 30 of them, all crappy brats aged 13-15. I suddenly started to feel very old.?
This had the predictable effect on AKB48 fans, who flooded onto his site and began denouncing him as an evil racist, eventually forcing the post to be pulled ? though plenty of others merely found themselves forced to agree with his evaluation?
I imagine he can expect further grief from the more otaku fans over the next few weeks, especially if they can stop fapping over AKB and drag their fat behinds outside <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo-->
