43-year-old Man Arrested for Uploading "81diver" Manga

One of the Weekly Young Jump's leading manga titles

The endless war between the Japanese police and illegal anime/manga uploaders still continues. ACCS (Association of Copyright for Computer Software) reported today that Shimane Prefectural Police's Consumer and Environmental Division and its Hamada branch office arrested a 43-year-old male office worker on suspicion of using the file-sharing software Share to upload the second volume of Yokusaru Shibata's shogi-action manga 81diver to the internet without the copyright holder's permission on August 7th, 2012. 81diver has been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump since 2006. So far 26 tankobon volumes have been released in Japan.


One of the Shimane Police's staff found the crime during the cyber patrol and made contact with the copyright holder, Shueisha, the publisher of the manga, through ACCS. The suspect admitted his guilt and was referred to the Hamada branch of the Matsue Public Prosecutors' Office on May 15th.
