NekoGir1, also known as “Neko Girl 1”, is a Japanese manga artist who has been leaking illustrations and other content online without permission. Her work has been published in various magazines, including Dengeki Daioh and Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh.
On March 14, 2019, it was announced that NekoGir1 had been arrested for suspicion of copyright infringement. The arrest was made after an investigation by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department’s Intellectual Property Crime Unit.
NekoGir1’s arrest is part of a larger crackdown on content piracy in Japan. In the past year, the police have made several arrests in connection with the illegal distribution of manga and other copyrighted material.
Content piracy is a serious problem in the manga industry, and it’s one of the reasons why many manga artists struggle to make a living. We hope that NekoGir1’s arrest will help to deter others from illegally distributing copyrighted material online.
