Don't be sure the drunk guy is not so recognizable. Look at his clothes, his shoes, the people he is with: all things that can possibly identify him. And of course now we have the data from the previous comment. The three other guys might be able to sue as well since they are shown doing nothing to help the drunk guy... Oh so many legal and ethical problems. And where is Tokyo Mango to respond?
I think these reader photos are problematic in that they are showing people in embarrassing situations and without their consent. Being in a public setting is not an excuse to take pictures and then publish them. Technically the photographer and the publisher could be sued. Are you aware of these things? I have been researching these issues for some time. http://visualanthropologyofjapan.blogspot.com/2009/02/ethics-of-visual-anthropology-in-japan_12.html I'd be interested in hearing your take on these ethical and legal issues.
