An 51-year old male teacher in Akita Prefecture was caught forcing one of his students to dress up in a maid costume. The student was blackmailed into it; he told her that she wouldn’t get class credits if she didn’t do it. He claims it was a joke; the school tried to keep it on the down-low by simply suspending the teacher, but the girl’s family called the cops on Tuesday. The costumes were props for an art club project that he was administering; the girl refused to wear the maid costume because her parents were against it. That’s interesting, that her parents were against it. Perhaps they have a negative perception of maid cafes and cosplay. I wonder if that’s common?
BTW, this pic is of my caramel macchiato at a maid cafe. It has a kitty drawn on it with caramel. Soooo much better than Starbucks.
