Tokyo police have confirmed that the man who attacked Satomi Kurogane was a 41 year old US citizen named Brian Thomas. Apparently his nickname was “Phone” – he was a street artist specializing in graffiti.
They haven’t provided any theories yet as to why he did what he did, or how he died. The autopsy results won’t be released for a few days, but from where I stood, it looked like he was having a full on stroke or heart attack or something – layers of pain all at once.
Satomi is doing fine – the concussion and cuts aren’t serious. She’s already back to her normal self – she’ll be out of the hospital soon.
I won’t say that the whole Die Database tour is canceled, but the next few weeks are definitely off.
