I hope they catch the nutcase behind this. It's surreal that somebody hates the series so much they will resort to this.

My question is, why only NOW the creeper started to send all these threat notes? I mean the manga has been going on for a long time already. Unless they only watched the anime which aired this year... and assumed it was a parody of some other anime... ? Anti's are such idiots sometimes :/ it's ruining all the fans and the people who work for kuroko no basuke who are innocent.

Lol what? "If you guys have this event I'm gonna sell drugs there!" is a pretty weird threat, hadn't heard about all of the other ones though so that is worriesome.

Don't lump everyone together. It appears to be an individual who hates the series after threatening the mangaka, and now going as far in threatening the fans. That's a bit too much...

he's probably just mad that the series is so popular.

This has gotten so crazy that they had to even threat a doujinshi event?? Honestly, who ever you are, please stop this nonsense!! Anime hyper A lot of people love Kuroko no Basuke because of it's comedy, and some other.... *cough*aspects*cough*... but nevertheless... this person must be stopped before he becomes a threat to more things. Already the character singles have been postponed, and I'm not really sure if it's related to these threats are not. Anyone know if the manga is being halted atm either?

Human stupidity, a constant source of both entertainment and at times depression caused by how pathetic it can all be.

But yeah, hope this guy gets caught.

Do you think it might be someone who holds a personal grudge against the creator like an acquaintance?

I feel sooo bad for the mangaka-- not only does he have to put up with these awful personal threats, but his school too? That must be so humiliating, not to mention scary. Whoever is behind this must be a real butt. I hope they get caught AND stub their toes on the way to their bed tonight!!

That would be too close for comfort. I really doubt it.

They said it might be a Slam Dunk fan... Then again as Kuroko's Basketball fan myself, the series pay homages to Slam Dunk, since the second main protagonist Kagami was doing all the dunking by himself anyway. There's nothing in the series to parody about over basketball and character in-jokes with the humor here and there if anyone gets it.

The letter was received on October 13. It stated, "Tadatoshi Fujimaki is despicable. If the Kuroko's Basketball event is not cancelled, I will disperse drugs [there]."

Well, that's a ... strange threat. Hope they catch whoever is doing this.

Maybe a jealous otaku who doesn't like where the stories are taking his waifu, like how Selena Gomez got death threats for dating Justin Bieber. Laughing
