When it comes to Japan I never felt age was a factor in determining this. There are women in their 40s who still act like women in their 20s. The opposite is true also.

The point here is what they admitted to. It's probably be more of a case of girls wanting to pretend they are still pure.

How low can you go? Nice advertisement here by Japan today.
And what does this last line mean?
"And wait: “aged 18 and above”…? Does that mean Moe Date lets you “date” underage girls as well? "

I guess you don't know the difference between a cheap pen / pencil and an expensive one. I've been using a 20,000 yen pen for over 3 years. I wouldn't consider using another.
That's good for you. But most people wouldn't consider spending 20,000 yen for a pen. Even if it is fancy and still works 3 years later.

Actually this is for season 5. They already showed season 4 in Japan and that episode takes place in season 5.

I saw one of these Clowns playing with his gub when I walked by a Koban the other night. Pointing it outward towards the window. Idiot.

Yuuda had made a written statement to police promising that he would no longer become violent.
Yeah as if that would stop him. Who the hell believes the word of a man who hits women?
This woman did. The incidence of violent crime against women is, however, far lower than in most other nations.
Reported far less you mean.

I take up two seats so I don't have to sit to the drunk guy or girl who is in a state between passing out and wakefulness. Usually waking just as their head hits my shoulder or worse and then passing out the moment they sit up straight to continue the cycle.
Ok I know people work hard and are tired but jezuz, as soon as they sit down and open a book they're gone to sleep land.

To cut up a body and play around with it you need time and a place of privacy to do it. So I think they are a single person. They'll probably do it again. I think it's less likely that there's two sickos working together. I think it's a man as they'd had to be physically strong, they killed by blows to the head I believe, also they had to throw body parts possibly from a car or van meaning they had some physical strength beyond that of a Japanese woman and if it's a stalker I find it less likely that a woman would stalk another woman. They clearly enjoy what they did, they dumped the body where it could be found, no panic to hide or cover it up, they'll try it again.

This is sounding a lot like the American TV show "Dexter". In the first season a killer cuts up body parts of people and leaves them scattered, usually the head is not with the other body parts. What's worse is that in this series the killer cuts the flesh off the thigh bone. The killer is experimenting.
It's absolutly sick but this seems to bear more than a passing resmeblance.
