There’s a new group in Akihabara that have made the police step up their patrols since the crackdown officially started. Who are they? They call themselves the Big Four of Akiba, not to be confused with the F4 from Hana Yori Dango. These four men dress in Haruhi outfits, and carry air guns that look suprisingly similar to real guns. They first were spotted around Akihabara on March 30th.
A battle soon broke out between the members and a few more friends. The crowd started to inform the police, and the Big Four of Akiba scattered. Only one of the Haruhi cosplayers where caught. His bag was examined, but the police did not find anything. Seems he ditched the gun after he found out the police were looking for him. Unfortunately for Haruhi, someone was watching where he hid the gun, and informed police of its whereabouts.
