A 38 year-old police sergeant in Fukushima has been charged after allegedly using his digital camera to illegally capture the latest feature film version of anime Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. This apparently happened three times this summer.
A cinema staffer supposedly saw him filming this August, reports Sponichi.
When asked why he did this, the officer replied, "I filmed it for my personal viewing." As punishment, not only will his salary be reduced by a tenth for a month, but he'll also be known as the guy who illegally filmed a magical girl cartoon.
