Bloody shovel

Don't call it a spade

Where did the Samurais go?

tl;dr: They were killed by their women.

There’s been news of a very rare occurrence in Japan. A bombing. In a provincial city, at that. Utsunomiya, a town nobody knows about and nobody should really know about. Nothing going on there.

This week though, there was a big bombing. 1 dead, 3 injured. A car exploded in some park.


The media and the Internet were all talking about it. Terrorism! Must be, right?

Wait, terrorism? In Utsunomiya? No way. No fucking way. Of course it’s not terrorism. So what is it? Who did this?

This guy:


And who is this guy? A Samurai. A pissed off Samurai.

An old Samurai too. Retired. 72 year old ex officer of the Self Defence Forces. He had worked his whole life for the defense of his country. Alas, his country didn’t pay back the favor.

Kurihara Toshimasa had a schizophrenic daughter. She was going insane all the time at home, making a mess of herself and everything around her. He tried to control her anyway he thought of; to no avail. Eventually he forced her into an asylum.

His wife though had other ideas. A local cult sold her that her daughter wasn’t ill, she was just possessed or something, and they had this magic potions and rituals and stuff that could cure her of those possessions. The wife ate the whole thing up; eventually spent 500k dollars in whatever scam the cult came up with. The totality of Mr. Kurihara’s savings. A lifetime of savings. Including the retirement allowance that the army had given him. All gone.

Well eventually an argument ensued. The wife responded by suing our samurai for domestic violence. Everytime her daughter went batshit and he came to physically restrain her? Domestic violence. Sending her to the asylum against her schizophrenic will? Domestic violence. Arguing with the wife about money? Domestic violence. Evidence? None. The wife’s word.

Thing is our samurai was a bit old fashioned. He didn’t lawyer up. Why would I need a laywer? I’m in the right. Surely our legal system will recognize there is no evidence against me. Oh man. The judges gave his cultish wife everything she wanted. Divorce. Money. Property. Even the car. All to her. Our Samurai protested. “My wife tried to kill me. She assaulted me with a knife! Surely I had to restrain her”. The judges laughed. “Well if you had died we’d recognize that”.

Our Samurai had lost everything. His family. His property. His dignity. What could he do? It’s not like he didn’t defend himself. He run a Twitter account blogging about his trial. He started a blog. He went every day on 2ch (like reddit, sorta) trying to gain sympathy and attention. It didn’t work. Nothing work. Modern society is not kind to a samurai. It is however very kind to women. Even insane women.

And so he decided. He had lost everything. He was not allowed to live like a man. Then he will die like a man. On the morning of the 23th of October, he burnt down his (now his wive’s) house. 20 minutes later he sat on his car, and made it explode. His wife wanted the house and the car. Well, she won’t have them. That’s the least he could do.

People talk a lot about what a bunch of sexless wimps the modern Japanese have become.

Now you know why. Humans are rational. Everything is rational. Gnon is always there.

    If only he had taken the bitch or a couple of the bastards with him, his final act would have been even more deliciously inspirational.

    Old, bitter men, Stack* ’em higher and deeper, please. What do you have to lose? A vengeful death is a happy death. Don’t wait until you’re wallowing in decrepitude in a nursing home before you act.

      I agree. He did better than 99.99% of the men out there. But if he took out the Judge as well, he would have gone down as a Legend in Samurai Lore. RIP in Samurai Heaven, Great Warrior

    Yeah, we’ve read this story before, no stupid hairstyles or cool Japanese swords required:

    These guys were old, though, so didn’t have a way to know what the system had in store for them.

    For guys our age, there is no excuse.

    The system is an antiquated piece of industrial machinery with stupid, massive, slowly moving bits ready to suck you in and crunch you.

    Avoiding these bits on the way to marriage and functional children and grandchildren is not a trivial challenge but by no means an impossible one.

    The system is very stupid and predictable.

      What a heartbreaking story!

      >Avoiding these bits on the way to marriage and functional children and grandchildren is not a trivial challenge but by no means an impossible one.

      I kind of agree. There are 2 ways, from my perspective:

      1) Man either goes full-throttle religious, including marrying an observant woman from a proper community. Less chance for divorce, it’s mostly under man’s prerogative, and he (usually) gets to keep his sons, under (Jewish) divorce. The problem is that he either has to become a Haredi (if in America) or move to Israel and become a Haredi or Dati Leumi. For Haredis, as a baal teshuva, unless he’s truly special or lucky, he we get the crappiest woman from their community, since coming from the outside, and he will also have to lose almost all of his individuality.

      2) Man does not go full-throttle religious, does not marry or marries via a very advantageous contract (but marriage even with contract is still risky, given that certain jurisdictions reserve the right to not recognize such contracts for various reasons). He cohabits with relatively sane woman and creates a family with her, de facto. If any divorce happens, yes, he’s liable for child support, but property remains his.

      Is my understanding off? Any other ideas/corrections?

    This is absolutely heartbreaking. We live in such weird times; Gnon’s feedback mechanisms are all damaged or broken. I’m not even sure that a new religion would work, because the strengths of the old ones are eroding under the constant drumbeat of narcissism.

    Your interpretation is at odds with most of the coverage I’ve seen:

    Is there a particular reason you choose to believe the husband’s blog posts in this specific case? Or is it more of a “women always lie”-heuristic?

    • spandrell October 27, 2016 at 13:27

      I’m channeling what I’ve read on Japanese Twitter. Your links with Gendai as source aren’t very persuasive.

      • aleksanderpwnz October 27, 2016 at 15:41

        Right, but is there a reason you find your Twitter sources more persuasive? I just want to know how you came to your conclusions. Perhaps you can show me the specific tweets?

        • Toddy cat October 27, 2016 at 18:40

          Well, Spandrell’s account would seem to make a lot more sense, for one.

          • aleksanderpwnz October 27, 2016 at 19:27

            That’s kind of what I was referring to with the “women always lie-heuristic” :)
            And I was wondering if there was something else than consistency with his own world-view that compelled him to believe the man instead of the mainstream media. Since, you know, sometimes things happen that don’t fit 100% with your own world-view.

            Personally I find that both interpretations make sense, and would like to know what the reasons are for doubting the mainstream interpretation.

            • spandrell October 27, 2016 at 20:41

              It was more about the consistency of my Twitter feed. But I’ll admit that’s related to my world-view.

            • Toddy Cat October 28, 2016 at 14:57

              I don’t believe that women or the MSM always lie, but if the mainstream media reports something, and it seems to go along with the narrative a bit too tidily, there’s always reason to assume that a lie is in progress, or at the very least the story has been massaged a bit. See the Duke lacrosse rape hoax, “Haven Monahan”, etc, etc. Personally, I find Spandrell’s view much more compelling. Could it be your own worldview that keeps you from seeing this? I doubt that you are a pure, cold, induction machine either, any more that I or S are…

              Yes, sometimes thing happen that do not fit 100% into your worldview. You and I can agree on that, I’m sure. It would seem that the MSM does not.

        • spandrell October 27, 2016 at 19:06

          There’s this very handy search function which you can use and avoid me spending one hour browsing through my twitter backlog.

        • Candide III October 27, 2016 at 21:07

          There isn’t anything fancy about searching Twitter. I entered 栗原, that was too broad so I added 宇都宮 and voila. The very second tweet gives a link to court documents stating that, contrary to the wife’s side’s quote in Gendai, not only the 700,000 yen in cash they mention but also about 12,000,000 yen of Kurihara’s savings was impounded by the court for divorce payments.

    They went the same place as where the cowboys went. Tragic.

    I’ve seen the shitlibs and the damage done

    Minds closed and borders opened, values caved;

    I’ve seen the course and race of hist’ry run,

    The races shitlibs crushed, they claimed they’d saved

    And science, too, the tow’rs of learning dark

    And stark the distance ‘tween the old and new

    In art, they found of beauty not a quark

    But asked instead “Does this empower shrews?”

    Oh, West, tumble ye now at Progress’ feet

    And kneel, if hope ye ever to survive

    No intellect has shown sufficient fleet

    Nor has escaped a single lib captive.

    Let civics fall for now, let chaos reign,

    And pray when it recedes you still have kin.

    In NYC a few years ago (can’t remember exactly) a guy on the upper east side blew up his brownstone-like house. The stories said so his wife wouldn’t get it. I walked up there to see the gap between the neighboring buildings.
