You know Emporio Ivankov, that really, really creepy guy with the Rocky Horror Picture Show fetish from One Piece? Well, it turns out that his creepy factor apparently extends outside the boundaries of the character he voices. According to ANN,  Emporio's voice actor, Norio Imamura, thought it would be a good idea to post some rather ... ahem, unsavory photos of himself on his blog from the waist down. Imamura runs a bar called Toh in Tokyo's Shinjuku ward, where tattoo enthusiasts are encouraged to come hang out. It's not a yakuza thing, we swear. (Actually, it could be. Maybe).
 
Anyway, the 56 year old voice actor was arrested by police on Monday for posting blog photos of his own tattoos. He claimed that he just wanted to show readers that he had finished tattooing his entire body. Sureeeeee, Norio. He claims he spent between 4 and 5 million yen on the tattoos. I'm sure that is true, but why doesn't Japan learn that blog photos can get you in trouble? I'm sure we all remember the Miku Natsume incident with the condom. Maybe next time, Imamura will save his proud tattoo exhibition for the shadowy corners of his bar.

I was just reading about this somewhere else.  It's kinda funny, but fans must be a little angry.
 
Also, glad to more staff coming to Anime Vice now.        :)

Oh, Ivan-chan. You sooo crazy. He had his whole body tattooed? What is he, Yakuza?
 
I hope this doesn't effect One Piece anime. Ivan doesn't plan a huge role in the Marineford arc, but is frequent. I like Ivan's VA.
 
That Miku Natsume story sounds like a complete load. So, she was holding a box of condoms in a photo. Was that reason enough for her to fired? Though, I haven't seen those photos that were in the tabloid. I have no idea how she was posed with them.

" @FoxxFireArt: Even little things can damage a whole city. To say, it was like a tiny machine thing-a-bob that can hack and shut down everything within 600 miles radius. Whole city needed to take that out in order to save their asses. What the girl didn't seem too bad, at least she wasn't naked and shoving 7inch dick in her mouth, now THAT is horrible.   Now what the old guy did, that was just as bad with shoving a dick in the mouth part. He knew it was wrong but he wanted to show how big his manhood was and how lovely it was covered in ink. *shivers* I'm glad they arrested him, just hope it wasn't too harsh of a punishment.  "
Unless he's taking his penis and doing just penis shots I don't think you can compare art to dick sucking.
 
Even if he did a waist down photo as long as he included his legs and so on, then he's just showing art. I'm just saying unless he's showing a biggggg picture of his a tatted penis in your face, then I don't see the issue.. I've seen worse.

" @Catolf: Ain't what the person starting the thread meant? The guy got arrested for a reason. "
for being nude.. Yes, i grasped that concept, I was just saying that comparing showing off tat's to dick sucking is way out there.

" @Catolf: Nude probably meaning showing off his crotch area. If the guy only showed his stomach, chest, arms and back without the crotch showing, there shouldn't be an arrest at all. 
 
@jewl122: I don't see any cursing at all, use spell check it helps. If you hate cursing, don't start "What the- " No one is arguing anyway. And if you are under 18, you shouldn't be even commenting on this thread. Your curiousness is the blame :P "
I'm just saying taking it to the concept of dick sucking it way far out there. Yes if your nude I'm going to flinch, but it's nude, it's not a sexual activity, he wasn't jerking off. Mostly my disagreement comes from the toher poster's statement XP
