A 34-year-old resident of Tokyo’s Shibuya has been arrested on suspicion of violating Japanese copyright law after selling unlicensed Demon Slayer cakes.
According to Kyodo News, the women sold the cakes through Instagram, with customers submitting their desired images to be turned into frosting, cream, and sugar. The suspect is said to have charged between 13,000 yen ($114) and 15,000 yen ($132) per cake. Since July 2019, it is believed she made over 6,500,000 yen in sales. That’s over $57,000!
It’s a lot of cakes, too.
The Metropolitan Police Department released photos of the criminal cakes in question, which can be seen in the above TBS News clip.
