Monta Mino (69) has just stepped down from his two programs on TBS following the arrest of his son. Prior to his son's arrest, he took a "break" from his morning show Mino Monta no Asa Zuba! as allegations of sexual harassment involving Akiyo Yoshida, his co-announcer on the program, surfaced. Now, the publication FLASH has come up with a list of 16 women who were also sexually harassed by Mino.
According to the publication, Mino's "habit" dates all the way back to around 1993, with Toko Amemiya, currently a freelance announcer, his first victim. FLASH reports that Mino approached Amemiya by saying "You're my type. Please, let's do it, just once".
(Continued after the jump)
There are a lot of victims within the same TV station, like Tomoko Kubota, who was his assistant in 2001, ex-announcer Airi Yamada, who was also in Asa zuba!, whom he apparently approached with the line, "You'll become a main caster if you become my lover". Yamada who was already married at that time troubled over this but transferred to a different program, and eventually left the company. Other announcers such as Kanae Takeuchi, Ai Etoh, Sylwia Kato, Yuriko Takahata, and even weather girl Ryoko Mima were all "touched" by Mino.
Other victims are talents Yuri Mitsui and Wakako Shimazaki, mascot girls on special programs, and even women who just went to watch the taping of their programs.
"Mino is a major shareholder of TBS, so any sort of appeal made by the female announcers is useless since the executives will not even lend them an ear, as the higher-ups will defend Mino. Mino played a huge role in the resignation of Yamada and Takeuchi, and TBS might have already reached their limit as they couldn't afford to lose any more female announcers. And then comes Mino's resignation after his son's scandal. An announcer who was a victim of Mino apparently made a victorious pose as she heard that news." - (TV staff)
Mino expressed his desire to return to TV someday, but he has no right to if he cannot fix his behavior.

That's so harsh of the Massgomi*, they're suddenly turning their backs on him wwww
* (マスゴミ = "Masukomi" or "mass communications" is the Japanese term for mass media. "Masugomi" is a play on this, as "gomi" means "trash" and refers to how their media can really be rubbish at times. )
