As the New Year begins, “Downtown” Hitoshi Matsumoto’s “sexual scandal” is about to take a new turn.

At the end of last year, Shukan Bunshun (Weekly Bunshun) reported that Matsumoto had been involved in a sexual scandal in 2003. In 2003, Matsumoto rented out a hotel room in Tokyo and had a sleazy party with three women.

The woman who was forced to have sexual relations with Matsumoto later developed PTSD. She decided to press charges last year after the sexual assault scandal involving the late Janie Kitagawa came to light.

In a statement, Yoshimoto Kogyo, to which Matsumoto belongs, said

The article in question seriously degrades the social reputation of the celebrity and is defamatory of his reputation,” the company said in a statement.

Yoshimoto Kogyo said in a statement

We are strictly protesting the article, including the manner in which it was reported, and will consider legal action against them.

The company completely denies the allegations. Bunshun, on the other hand

The article is based on multiple detailed testimonies, and we are fully confident that we have done our best to back up our claims.

They are not willing to budge an inch.

The issue containing Matsumoto’s scandal sold like hotcakes, partly because it was during the year-end and New Year holidays. It was clearly a ‘targeted hit,’ and it seems as if they had been covering the issue for some time.

Meanwhile, a comic book about this incident has become a hot topic on the Internet. More than two months before Bunshun was released, the series of allegations had been covered in an omnibus magazine, “Entertainment Industry Misfortune Compendium,” published by Core Magazine.

The film features Matsumoto, Ryoko Hirosue, Kabuki actor Ennosuke Ichikawa, and many others who have graced the gossip pages in 2011.

The film is a collection of the gossip of 2011, including Matsumoto, Ryoko Hirosue and kabuki actor Ennosuke Ichikawa! The Shame of the Industry.

is the strong subtitle of the manga, which is a cartoon of “true” and “false” behind-the-scenes information.

Among them are

M.H., who has just left the wide show.

Matsumoto also appears in the comic, with the notation “M.H., who has now left the wide show. The cartoon depicts Matsumoto sharing a bed with several women. Surprisingly, even Kazutaka Ozawa of the comedy duo Speed Wagon, who is said to have accompanied Matsumoto to the women, makes an appearance.

He says, “Once you enter the room, your cell phone will be confiscated. Understood?

The film is exactly as described in the Bunshun article. In the film, Matsumoto’s pale face is shown along with the words, “I’ll confiscate your cell phone if you go into my room.

In fact, some weekly magazines are reportedly continuing their stakeout.

The Internet has been buzzing about the manga.

A portion of the manga appeared on the Internet, and a number of people mistook the source for “Jitsuwa Knuckles,” but Core Magazine Web posted the following on its X (formerly Twitter) page

The web site of Core Magazine announced on X (former Twitter), “This work, which is the topic of discussion, was published in Knuckles, but it is a product of Core Magazine.

The announcement was made on the Core Magazine web site (formerly Twitter), saying, “This is a product of Core Magazine.

I was surprised to see the exact same content as Bunshun. Is it by the same source, or is it completely different and only the modus operandi is the same? Either way, it seems that Matsumoto’s allegations were so well known in some quarters that they became the subject of a comic strip.

In addition, there is one more thing. The work was published at the end of October last year, and counting backward, it is highly likely that the original idea for the manga was written even earlier. At that stage

Some weekly magazines are continuing their stakeout of the manga.

It seems that Bunshun had been keeping a close watch on Matsumoto for at least half a year.

The scandal was the subject of a special program on E-television’s “Such a Night I Can’t Put Into Words,” a variety show in which Ozawa serves as MC, which was scheduled to air on January 3. (NHK E), a variety program in which Ozawa serves as MC, was canceled. The station explained that it was due to “scheduling reasons,” but it is clear that the news reports about Matsumoto had an impact on the program.

A reporter for a sports newspaper commented

NHK is a public broadcaster, so we have no choice but to take action even at the stage of suspicion. The fact that NHK has taken visible action has heightened tensions among commercial broadcasters and sponsors.

The NHK’s visible move has heightened tensions among private broadcasters and sponsors.

On January 5, Shukan Josei PRIME (Weekly Women’s PRIME) published an image of a LINE in which the victim thanked Matsumoto and Ozawa. Attached to the image, Matsumoto wrote in his own X message

It’s finally out, isn’t it?

The manga reported the scandal.

The manga does not describe what happens to Matsumoto or Ozawa after the scandal is reported. The current turmoil is likely to continue, but what will become of it?
