Meredith’s roomate, Amanda Knox and her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito are charged with murder. Meredith was found half-naked, with her throad slit with blood on the walls. Mignini summarised that the scene was similar to that of a scene from AKIRAFUGA (Demon Lord Dante).

Naturally, this case is getting an unbiased and fair media coverage, with the abhorent The Sun stating:

“The court was told the password for his computer is AKIRAFUGA. Akira is a character in violent sado-masochistic Manga comics.

Fuga is Italian for flee. One Akira story relates how the ‘hero’ ran after trying to rape students.”
