Tsukasa Fushimi has gained a lot of fanbase since the launch of Oreimo (Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai). Unfortunately, there are also those who would start stalking and bashing the author of the popular novels. Death threats and dangerous images were a part of the 500 messages sent to Fushimi-sensei’s personal email.
Earlier today, the Tokyo police arrested a named named Noboru Aoi at the Koujimachi station in the Japanese capital. He is suspected of sending over 500 emails to Tsukasa Fushimi, the author of Oreimo. Reportedly admitted being the culprit. Within the short time gap between November 16, 2011 and Thursday, April 12, 2012, he has managed to find the personal email of the author and send her more than five hundred threatening emails. Some of them were quoted saying:
“I’m figuring out your home address” and “Die, fraud” as well as “I’ll make you regret this”
The 32-year-old man is rumoured to have meant the email for the Oreimo character Kuroneko and not the person behind the story.
Oreimo (Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai) is the original novel series by Fushimi-san. It has been adapted into a manga serialised in Dengeki G’s Magazine as well as a couple of TV anime series.
Surely, having Kuroneko x Kyousuke as an official couple is not the right reason to send death threats to the author’s personal email.
Is this great news or not-so-great? What do you think? Comment below.
