Rapist Students Disgrace Waseda University, One of Japan's Top Private Universities


Cruel crime cases are increasing in Japan. Have the Japanese people lost their desire for justice?

University students are increasingly becoming involved in sex and money-related crimes. A recent series of rapes by well-know university students has shocked Japan.

Members of the 'Super Free Club,' a student circle organization centered at Waseda University, one of Japan's top private universities, have committed terrible crimes. The Super Free Club labels itself as an organization that promotes friendship among all universities.

However, it was found that their members are committing violent rapes after inviting co-eds to their parties. If a Super Free Club member refuses to join in a rape, he could be lynched.

It has been found that Japanese universities have become hotbeds of crime. After graduation, members of these groups are often hired by major Japanese corporations.

The former leaders of this rape group told their stories to The Weekly Post.

1. Waseda University Rapists

'On June 19, officers at the Azabu Police Station of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Office arrested five Waseda and Gakushuin University students on charges of group sexual assault on women.

On the night of June 18, a group of 20 students including one coed were having a dinner party at a Japanese-style saloon in Roppongi in downtown Tokyo. Drunk, five male students took the coed out of the saloon and took turns raping her. The coed reported the crime at the Azabu Police Station.

The five students were found to be members of a student circle called the 'Super Free Club,' led by Shinichiro Wada, a 28 year-old sophomore student of Waseda University. The Super Free Club is supposed to be promoting friendly exchanges between students from different universities.

The circle has been holding student party events at night clubs in Tokyo, one of which was attended by 2,000 students. The Super Free Club has been well known among university students, according to the source.

The arrest of the club members triggered many other woman students to report to the police that they too had been raped. The police department's investigation has uncovered rape cases by the group.

Waseda University is one of the top private universities in Japan. The Weekly Post (TWP) investigated the alleged cases of the Super Free Club and succeeded in interviewing former leaders. Their stories were shocking.

Witness 1:

"When I joined the Super Free Club, I was surprised by its strict hierarchical system. The circle organization was capable of getting 2,000 students to attend its parties although the organization had only about 30 staffers. They were organized into three hierarchical categories - the 'First Army,' 'Second Army' and 'Boys,'

"The major job performed by the staff was to sell tickets for the parties. Shinichiro Wada, the leader of the Super Free Club, tasked each staffer to sell 3,000 tickets. His staff visited other universities to sell tickets. The invitation flyer was printed in red. Wada said, 'The red color stimulates sympathetic feelings. Our events have proven this.'"

Witness 2:

"Tickets for our events were sold for 4,000 yen (approx. $33) for men and 3,000 yen (approx. $20) for women, which brought in sales revenue to the circle. 'Boy' staffers who sold more than 10 tickets had to pay 2,000 yen each to Wada. The 'Second Army' and 'First Army' staffers had to give 1,000 and 1,500 yen respectively to Wada. The balances were Wada's profit,

"The more tickets they sold, the higher they rose in the organization,

"It was easy for the 'First Army' leader to make 700,000 yen (approx. $5,800) a month. Wada's profit was said to be more than 10 million yen (approx. $83,000) a year, but no one exactly how much he made."

2. More Than 20 New Coed Victims

Witness 3:

"The party which caused the arrest this time was held under the sponsorship of the Yacht Club of Keio University (another top private university and Waseda's rival.). After the party, the Super Free Club members had another party. The rape was committed there,

"Wada was always leading the rapes and concealing them by manipulating the organization. Whenever Wada committed rape, he got several staffers involved in the crime. When Wada found that staffers were not participating, he lynched them. In such cases, he threatened them saying 'You are destroying the team." Weak staffers could not resist him. Wada made everyone surrounding him complicit in the crime. No staffers would go to the police because they also committed rape,

"Also, Wada videotaped or took pictures of the rapes in order to keep the victim silent."

Witness 4:

Within the group, many secret words were used to conceal intended rapes. One example was the word 'Rolling,' which meant gang rape. They also used the word, 'force hit,' which meant 'rape,'

"They frequently used the expression, 'hot girls.' They also used the name of a poplar Japanese soccer player Nakada to describe a woman's genitals.

Witness 5:

"Super Free Club members were having parties every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in during April at Japanese saloons near Takadanobaba Station. The parties held to welcome new students and help them make friends with students from various universities,

"Super Free Club members targeted naïve coeds from local towns. They got the coeds drunk and separated them from other coed attendants. Once they succeeded doing this, they invited the drunken coed to some other place, saying, 'Our friends are resting at our office. Let's visit them." This was their tactic to get them to go to Wada's apartment. And that is where they raped each coed,

"As far as I knew, they raped someone twice a week. I guess that they raped more than 20 naïve coeds in April."

3. 5 Million Payment to Organized Crime Group

Witness 6:

"When Super Free Club members committed rapes at night clubs in downtown Tokyo, their methods were more sophisticated. Staffers were divided into three groups assigned to guide the co-eds that came to the parties, register them at the entrance, and take care of those coeds that had already entered the party room,

"At the entrance, pretty coeds were given VIP cards. These girls enjoyed the special treatment. However, they were the club's targets. The VIP coeds were invited to a VIP room and given a special cocktail, called the 'Spiritus,' which club members made. The cocktail was filled with 96 proof Vodka. The coeds puffed up by the VIP treatment had the drinks,

"Super Free Club members then took these drunken coeds to other rooms and took turns raping them. Five to ten students were involved."

Witness 7:

"The coeds who were not raped at the party room were invited to a second party at different places, mostly saloons. These second parties were called 'Super Parties.' On most of these occasions, about 60 men and women attended,

"At such parties, coeds were invited outside and raped repeatedly in stairwells. Afterwards, the criminals left the victims, taking their shoes, purses and cell phones so they could not escape."

Witness 8:

"The rapes by Super Free Club members caused other troubles. One involved a coed that was raped by Wada and his nine men implored an organized crime group to seek revenge. The organized crime group demanded that Wada pay ten million yen (approx. $83,000) to her. However, Wada used an intermediary connected with the organized crime world and cut the deal in half, paying just five million yen,

"Wada seemed to have connections with organized crime groups."

Witness 9:

"When a Super Free Club member attempted to rape a coed by himself, he was punished by Wada. So, at parties, when Wada found one of his men close to a coed, he warned them with his eyes. When his man was interested personally in one woman, he had to report to Wada and share the woman,

"When his men introduced coeds that they knew to Wada, they were promoted. Wada created a pyramid of sex and money, placing himself at the top,

"Until the rape case this time surfaced, Wada had sent emails to his men including myself saying, 'Do not accept any interviews by news media,' or 'You must pay me my share of the tickets sold.'"
