Area(s) Reported: Japan: Fictional
Date(s) Reported: 2008, August 26

On August 26, 2008, a strange account of an eight-foot tall woman with a talent for making children and teenagers disappear was posted on a website in Japan... and from there it grew far past the woman's substantial height. According to the story, a being called 'Hachi-Shaku-Sama' -- literally 'eight-foot tall person' -- was accidentally released from a shrine in a small farming community where she had been entrapped for fifteen years; and only through an extraordinary effort was the author of the initial account saved from the tall woman's predation. But she remained free to roam the small town... and soon was appearing in anime, manga, and games!
