The police in Japan need to paint a van with Kuroko Basketball characters and drive around the country until the whackjob attacks them.

You let one nutjob have his way, you ultimately let them all.

I feel really bad for Kuroko's Basketball's creator and the franchise. It's messed up that all this fear is curtailing all of the normal, good things they are trying to do publicly.

Y'know, they should probably take a page out of the American way of doing things and set up a Kuroko's Basketball doujinshi event as bait to lure this guy in. Just set up plain clothes cops and hidden cameras everywhere so if anyone tries anything they'd be arrested on the spot. Inaction is only going to lead to copycats threatening other manga authors just because they can.

I know Japan has its own scars with terrorist attacks and I can understand why they are trying to be cautious. That said, I have to wonder if this is the usual way they respond to threats (give into the terrorist's demands). I'm just wondering what the normal protocol is or if there is something with these threats that is making them extra cautious.

I think this and the van idea are probably better ideas then what they have done so far, even if they are make you laugh or would never be approved. I mean seriously this going to inspire tons of copy cats for other series if this keeps up.

My thoughts exactly. This lone loser is being allowed to screw over an entire franchise because the police are so incompetent as to catch him and the publishers are too afraid of him to carry on with events and merchandising anyway. It's madness.

oh my god, i feel like the Japanese are being dominated by a dictator that tells them Kurobas is NOT allowed....
prolly people are like selling those doujinshi's in secret like how people sell drugs or something LOL

but on a completely serious note, they really need to step up and don't let this nutjob have his/her way. S/HE'S A TOTAL CRAYCRAY Dx ah, i still can't get over what i read about this person....... s/he seriously needs to get arrested, man i have no idea what the police are doing! //facepalm.

Same here. I realize it's a difficult tightrope to walk, between potentially risking peoples' safety and seemingly cowing to this loser's threats, but in this instance I feel like there's been so many canceled events, so many products put on hold, that it will ultimately give this pathetic freak what he wants: to hurt Kuroko's Basketball where it counts. Even a popular, well-loved series can be shut down if its monetary value is damaged enough.

I've no knowledge of how the Japanese police would typically go about countering these series of attacks and threats, but however they do, I hope it's soon and it ends this a**hole's little jaunt in the spotlight for good. And that the manga creator, the fans, and the companies backing Kuroko can all go back to things as usual.
Don't let pathetic dumbasses like this gain control or influence over anything. Don't publicize them so they think they've become "celebrities." Shut them down. Hard. And let them fade into obscurity where their sad existences are remembered by no one.

no need to feel bad. The manga sales are at all time high. Anime dvd sales are one of the best this year.
