I thought the scariest thing that was going to happen in Japan this ハロウィン (Harouin, Halloween) was the 衆議院選挙 (shūgi-in senkyo, Lower House election). Over the course of the evening, however, a ニュース速報 (nyūsu sokuhō, breaking news) alert reported a knife attack on the Keio Line in Tokyo that left 17 passengers injured.

東京調布市を走行中の電車内で乗客が切りつけられるなどして17人がけがをした (Tōkyō Chōfu-shi o sōkōchū no densha-nai de jōkyaku ga kiritsukerareru nado shite jūnana-nin ga kega o shita, Passengers were slashed in a train passing through the Tokyo city of Chofu, leaving 17 people injured), reported national broadcaster NHK.
