54-year-old Katsuya Takahashi was arrested at a manga cafe in downtown Tokyo. Why? Well, according to the AP, it turns out he’s been on Japan’s most-wanted list for his role in the Aum Shinrikyo death cult’s sarin gas attack on subways in Tokyo back in 1995.

From Wikipedia:

In five coordinated attacks, the perpetrators released sarin on several lines of the Tokyo Metro, killing thirteen people, severely injuring fifty and causing temporary vision problems for nearly a thousand others. The attack was directed against trains passing through Kasumigaseki and Nagatachō, home to the Japanese government. It is the most serious attack to occur in Japan since the end of World War II.

See, kids? Comics will get you in trouble.
