Otaku, like most groups, have their good people and their not so good people. And it seems that one group of Otaku are making the real-life Gridman’s life very difficult right now.
Recently, the Japanese anime, SSSS.Gridman, finished its twelve episode run. But some folks don’t know that back in 1993 there was a live-action series called Gridman the Hyper Agent, which spawned last year’s anime.
Well, the actor that played Gridman, Masaya Obi, runs a small restaurant in Japan. Pretty cool, right? Well, recently his store’s phone number was spread through the Otaku world, and now he is getting 50-100 harassing prank calls each day! See his complaints here:
He notes that if things continue like this, he will be forced to close down his store. We really don’t want to see that, so let’s give the guy a break.
C’mon Gridman! Power-up and defeat these bad guys! You can do it!
