Manga creator Yoshinori Kobayashi reported on Tuesday that the publisher Gentosha received a phone call earlier in the morning that said, "I will plant a bomb on the street that Kobayashi travels." Kobayashi said that the call has been reported to the police. As a manga creator, he is known for Gōmanism Sengen and other works that express his conservative, nationalistic views.
Update: This is the second year in a row that Kobayashi receved a threat on Christmas. Last year, the threat was, "I will set fire to anti-nuclear manga creators." Kobayashi became an anti-nuclear commentator after the March 2011 earthquake and the resulting crisis at the Fukushima nuclear reactor. Source: RBB Today
