Why would a manga cafe have 1 Million yen?

Why does this oddly remind me of a robbery last year where I live, someone robbed a KFC with three people and were armed but all they got was 47 dollars.

But it's even better when 90% of our police force went after them and they got away it's sad on both ends.


haha too funny, especially about the cops....

Should have used a death note better

I guess if he was arrested at the scene, upon hearing that they had less than a million, he stood around and waiting for them to make up the difference in sales. He was robbing a manga cafe with a razor blade, clearly no planning skills. What would he have done if they just started throwing manga at him? *giggle* (mental picture)

I can see all the parents just complaining about how manga makes you rob banks, stores, cafes, and all other sorts of things ~.~

Kawaii = Cute, the two i's are in there.
Kawai = basically poor or something. As in for pity. At least as far as I remember.

So yeah, Kawai suits him perfectly. Failure XD.


Thankyou, that's what I was going to say. Except for the second one, you're thinking of Kawaisoo, I think.

Also, razor could mean cutthroat-type razor, i.e. six to eight inches of scalpel-grade sharpness. If properly sharpened, those are very effective and unpleasant weapons.

However, why rob a manga cafe? What a fool.

he demanded 1 million yen, its doesn't say if the cafe had it or not.

Oh shit man, don't make me go emo.

I still don't understand how/why a manga cafe would have 1 million yen =\

Oct 18, 2007 10:58 PM by deViate

Yeah, the whole razor blade thing is f'n lame...

Oct 18, 2007 10:30 PM by Dikard_von_Doom

Since when does a manga cafe have that kind of money?
