Overview

When Kamichan starts blogging about his passion, teenage boy bands from the Japanese talent agency Johnny's, little does he know that his blog would soon become one of the most popular in the fandom. And little do his predominantly teenage and young adult female readers know that Kamichan is not one of them. When they find out that he is actually a man in his 30s, the fandom is split into those who don't mind and those who strongly object to a middle aged man hunting on their grounds. In a smear campaign they try to discredit him as a potentially dangerous predator of teenage boys. But is he really?

In a tale of fame and infamy Marcus Herzig recalls his exciting, adventurous, and sometimes scary journey into the Johnny's fandom with the same spirit, humour, and blunt honesty that earned him devoted fans and enemies alike as a blogger and fanboy.

This 2nd revised edition contains an additional chapter not included in the 1st edition. Furthermore, in the chapter about Johnny Kitagawa's alleged sexual offences, the author recalls - for the first time in public - his own experiences as a victim of sexual molestation when he was 13.
