According to TBS, Imamura Norio, the seiyu of Ivankov Emporio in One Piece, was arrested for the exhibition of indecent pictures. Imamura had allegedly exhibited a picture of his lower body (with the genital organ exposed) in his blog for two months. He deposed that he wanted to make a show of his whole-body tattoo, which took him ten years for completion. Imamura is running a bar for tattoo lovers in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Imamura has been on friendly terms with the author Oda Eiichiro and Tanaka Mayumi, and he is the model of Ivankov character.

Wait, on a blog? What's the problem with that?
That is seriously fascist.

After seeing the pictures here I don't think they are THAT bad especilly because he did use mosaic to cover himself up and it is a passion of his so why wouldn't he want to show that?

Why do people watch anime to the extreme?

I'm starting to remember all those stories of teachers and such getting fired for posting "indecent pics" of themselves on their blogs.

Check out those tattoo!

I don't know what to say. Unique piece of news?

(>.>; He's a gangster...? Is that it?)
