Okay, does anyone remember that guy from Deviantart, Toonunit? He was pretttyyy popular, and screwed over his friend Kidchan, as well as several commissioners. Also it was found out how much of his work he plagiarized. That was after all this happened, it's ED article worthy, tbh.
Well, I suppose it was about 6-7 years ago, when I was a freshman in highschool, I was a HUGE fan of his work. Bought his art book and everything. Just a general weeb. One day, out of nowhere, I got a PM from him, and my little weeby heart exploded! His message asked me for my MSN username, because he would like to talk to me sometime. He said, he has seen me around on his page, and thought I was pretty cool. I was seriously over the fucking moon.
It comes time to add him, and at first it starts out generally normal. We talked about Range Murata and other influences in our work, and progressively starts getting weirder.
He tells me, he needs me to do him a huge favor. His friend is in a coma, and he needs my help. At this point, it starts sounding like some sort of magical girl anime type shit, except, not until he says the next part. I believed he lived in Malaysia, and he wanted me to CALL MALAYSIA, and IMPERSONATE HIS FRIENDS GIRLFRIEND THATS LIVING IN THE US. I can't remember what the entire fucking reason was?? But it was so bizarre and unreal. being 15, I'm like "uhhh, I can't do that! I wish I could, haha...." and be BEGGED. "Please, please, I don't know who else can help! etcetc", and I seriously had no idea what to do.
I finally stopped talking to him around the time he was sending me messaged like "Mmmm, i wish you could come here, I am so very horny..." and saying it was a joke.
I guess it's not quite a 'weeaboo horror story", but I've never actually told this to anyone? I kind of forgot. IRL friends wouldn't care, and he was so popular at the time, I figured people would assume I was lying. Not so great, wish I had caps or could remember more.
