Star ★ Draft, a variety show currently airing on Nippon Television, has welcomed a few "otakus" to their show and publicly shames them.
Now, its been awhile since I've watched any reality, talent or variety shows currently airing on Japanese cable (except Downtown for a good laugh), but I had no idea public bashing had become this open for slangs and slurs to even be uttered by the guest commentators (Okay, so it was pretty rampant to begin with but is that how you treat guests?).
For a good part of the show, bashing from the critics was disgustingly brutal and heavy. Many (rude) comeback remarks were exchanged mostly from the panel of 7 seated guests and it was clearly a "talk-down" session meant to silenced the "lambs". You can see the hostility for yourselves at the video link below.
The group were asked from things that they hold dear, such as K-ON!, Madoka and Toyosaki Aki being mentioned, to "Akiba News" which criticized their "Akiba" fashion from Tote Bags to merchandises.
At one point, one of the guest commentators asked to view the figure and started kissing it before shoving a figure of Mio into his mouth, not before rinsing his mouth with a Ritsu plushie doll and PSP.
As one 2channer said, "Welcome to public execution..."
