Damn, man. Why do fans do shit like this? I remember back when Seo Taiji (the first Kpop group ever) broke up, we got the news over here in the states that fan girls were offing themselves and that shit was confusing to me as a youth. Well, I still haven’t figured it out. Smh.
The British tabloid newspaper Daily Mail reported on Friday that a 14-year-old Russian boy committed suicide after seeing a character in the Naruto Shippuuden anime die. According to the paper, Leonid Hmelev leapt more than 100 feet (30 meters) from an apartment building and died instantly.
The newspaper reported that Hmelev was devastated after seeing the death of the character Itachi Uchiha. (The death first appeared in the original Naruto manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2008.) Daily Mail said that Hmelev left a message about “planning an ending” on a social networking site.
Meanwhile, Shikamaru fans couldn’t be bothered.
