A Japanese criminal claims that he wanted to become Gohan

In Japan, on the the first day of a trial for bodily harm, it turned out that the defendant, arrested for cutting at his neighbor with a knife while being high on drugs, claimed that he wanted to make a name for himself by becoming Son Gohan from the Dragon Ball series. He also said that he had been trying to use Kaioken when he attempted to remove the handcuffs during the police investigation. One of the news articles bothered to point out that Gohan does not use Kaioken.


...Nothing makes sense here, but this one of the weirdest pieces of news ever became a hot topic among the Japanese fandom.

Because Gohan went around cutting people with knives while being high? :eh:

Yeah, this is really beyond strange.

I've heard of this just recently. What a strange incident. You don't hear about this kind of stuff with CNN in America. They're mostly consumed with politics. By the way Kei, did you ever get around to reading my PM?

This is the first thing I thought of when I read this. Somebody needs to use Adobe and make it look like this guy is doing the Kaioken.

Interestingly, it wouldn't be the first time somebody took it and did something DBZ-related with it. The above incident was responsible for the creation of this video.....and then somebody put a DBZ spin on it.

Damn. And I thought I liked Gohan a lot... though to be fair, aspiring to become Gohan is probably not aiming particularly high on the scale of ambition....

It's clearly that devilish rap music that influenced him.

Or maybe he wanted to be Soulja Boy, who looks like Gohan. As we all know, Soulja Boy is the most influential black rapper alive. :P
I tend not to post here anymore because what I say doesn't add to the conversation.

And here I thought I'd heard everything...then Japan ONCE AGAIN comes out of left field with this! Bravo Japan...good game, well played. But seriously...the guy was high off his mind so I doubt he had any clue to what he was saying. Either that or he was trying to be Gohan from the deadzone movie!
Going on hiatus. Too much stuff in RL to deal with for me to keep up with posts here for now. Was fun, hope you all have a nice day and future! Volt signing off.

With the many years on the net I've spent...I've learned being polite takes you much further then being a dick. So...lesson here is! Don't be a dick!

Wait, wait, was someone gravely injured or killed? When I read the OP, I figured it was nothing serious. Just slight cuts from some dude that was high as a kite and shouting DBZ attack names.

What a surreal incident. I don't really know what to make of it other than just another case of a fan taking an animated show too seriously.

Yup, that's true. And then Kishimoto brought Itachi back. :)

So did the victim die from the wounds? Or are you talking about the suicide story?

There's also this version. (although they seem to be using the Big Green dub interpretation of what a Kamehameha is).

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.
