Genius plan: Threaten every series that has a doujin circle connected to it, until it leaves Comiket completely empty, so I have a large venue to try and make the world's largest cake in.

The guy who sent the threat is probably cooped up in his room laughing maniacally.

Like someone said earlier, it's "smart" to give into the threats AND beef up security. Pick one or the other; not both! But pick the security option. Don't give into terrorist threats.

It's scary to think that somebody's delusional resentment can lead to such and impact. It's sad and scary. At least they're making the second season. Still sad and scary...

They probably won't find the person until whoever it is slips up.

Huh, given how many circles there are that don't get into Comiket (tables are pretty much done by lottery from what I understand) I think it would have been more wise to recoup some of the lost money by granting other circles the space.

God, the organizers sure are stupid as hell. They were successfully humiliated by the act of a lone random troll. The problem with the organizers is that they don't feel losing Kuroko dojin works to be that big of an issue since its only 8% of the total dojins participating. But what will they do if all the other dojin circle works were threatened like Kuroko. If it was up to me, I would sooner risk some dangers and beef up the security rather than giving in.

What we really should do is send in threats to places that are associated with popular anime and manga like what the troll did to Kuroko in hope of getting every dojin work banned in Comiket, and then hope to anger the committee into paying more effort into preventing such kind of trolling, and hopefully they will unban all the dojin works that are related to the the anime and manga that were threatened after they realize their stupidity.

This is something that just occurred to me, but how long has it been since the last "threat" was received? Ever since stuff started getting cancelled due to that lunatic I don't recall there being so many threats, if any. Rereading the articles, most of the threats were sent through october and there doesn't seem to be anymore since then so really, what's the deal?

Upping the security and cancelling the Kuroko circles doesn't double the expenses? They could've still let the Kuroko circles participate and use that money for security instead of losing the KnB circles' money and then having to pay even more for extra security. There's absolutely no logic to what they're doing

I'm surprised there were no threats after the announcement of a 2nd season.

This compilation of all of his posts from 2ch makes it seem like he's got more of a problem with BL fans than the manga itself, so I don't think the anime alone would make him angry.
