Gunma Prefectural Police arrested a 23-year-old woman for stealing and selling her boyfriend’s anime. She reportedly stole 8 anime sets that were worth 90,000 yen ($810) from her 49-year-old boyfriend and sold them to a shop.

Twitter user @wkkazuya claims to be the victim and Tweeted a picture of empty spaces on his collection shelf. He says that it isn’t a joke and that some of the stolen sets were unopened limited printed copies.

Some of the more valuable anime that were stolen included Sora no ManimaniDarker Than BlackTrue Tears, and Android Kikaider. The police report stated that Magical Lyrical Nanoha and Fullmetal Alchemist were also stolen from him.

According to @wkkazyua, his girlfriend had quit her job and was staying with him after she was expelled from her previous housing. He also says that she threatened to steal his anime before and believes that she has stolen from him in the past. The girlfriend has already admitted to the theft, citing the lack of money as motivation.

Police were able to collect the stolen anime from a local shop, but the valuable unopened sets have already been opened. @wkkazuya is currently seeking damages and will employ a lawyer.

However, he says that there is a silver lining. His beloved copies of Tokyo Pig and Azuki-chan are safe since they are stored in a different room. He believes that Azuki-chan is extremely valuable.
