Manga-inspired serial rapist? Japan's Mainichi Shimbun reports that police have arrested a man suspected of raping and robbing more than 70 women in a manner similar to the controversial Rapeman manga of the late 1980s and early '90s. The 36-year-old man is accused of telling the women he was asked to rape them. In the manga, a mild-mannered school teacher worked as a rapist for hire.
