The Mike Toole Show
The Anime Cult
by Mike Toole, Dec 13th 2015

Is there a reason this popped up on the back page as a new item, amongst the other January 2019 stuff. I didn't notice the year, and was going to post, when I was warned the article was over three years old. Probably just a glitch.

I was going to post that the cult leader of Aum was executed/hanged on July 6, 2018. There probably is an article of that already.

Edit: Ah, it is on the front page too.

It was related to a kerfluffle that happened when someone in the ad department ran an ad for a Happy Science movie without realizing the context/history of what it was. See here for more about that and how it's now been removed.

Anyways, with that happening, I believe Zac felt it was a good idea to remind everyone just how shady/skeevy the cult is since ANN unfortunately gave it some brief exposure.
