The prosecution has requested a one-year, six-month prison sentence at the Tokyo District Court on Friday for one of the Japanese defendants charged with the unauthorized distribution of anime with the Share file-sharing program. 41-year-old company employee Moriyoshi Inoha from Tokyo is the oldest of the three who were arrested on May 9 for uploading Gundam and other popular anime. The other two who were formally indicted on May 30 were 34-year-old company employee Kasuhiro Maki from Kawasaki City and 21-year-old university student Takahiro Ōtomo from Hiroshima Prefecture.
