Mayu Tomita (20), the Idol stabbed several times by a man before a show on May 21st, has opened her eyes today, and regained consciousness for the first time after two weeks fighting for her life.
According to Japanese newspapers, despite being stabbed over twenty times, her vital organs are apparently safe.
When Mayu’s condition will get better (hopefully soon) Police will ask for details about the incident. In the meanwhile, the man that assaulted the girl after stalking her for months (Tomohiro Iwazaki, 27) is currently under arrest.
It makes me really glad to see Mayu’s conditions getting better, and I hope she will be able to recover from this terrible experience as soon as possible. This girl needs nothing but love and support now.
I’ll keep you updated.

Today, at 5PM Japanese Time, in a building near the Musahi-Koganei JR station, 20 years-old Idol Mayu Tomita (ex member of the group Secret Girls, not to be confused with the ex AKB48 member) was stabbed twenty times by a “fan” attending a meeting event set before her show, originally planned for the evening. Mayu is now at the hospital in critical conditions, and hasn’t regained consciousness yet. The man, 27 years-old Tomohiro Iwazaki, confessed everything and has been immediately arrested.
This isn’t the first time this kind of accident happens in a meet and greet/handshake event, but this is by far the worst that has ever happened.
Mayu warned the police earlier this month about a man, named Iwazaki, writing to her obsessively on Twitter and on her blog. So it’s clear that the Idol was victim of stalking by a man with serious mental disorders.
It’s honestly beyond me why the police didn’t check this man when the girl warned about him at first, which makes me think, that this is something that could have been maybe avoided. But it’s not the right time to talk about this now.
All I hope is that Mayu can make it. I really hope so.
I’ll let you know if there’s any update.
