is there something wrong with the anime/radio shows that could possibly make someone so upset? like something controversial? or does this guy just apparently hate basketball Neutral

Wow I hope they catch this nasty creep soon.

I am not a fan of this series but of course there is nothing wrong with the series itself. This is just some sicko.

No, this person's whole deal is that he/she seems to think that Kuroko is a "horrible parody" of basketball and has to be canceled immediately, so he/she is sending threats out to anyone & anything that is related to the manga & anime. Oddly enough, though, it looks like Shueisha & the actual creator of Kuroko, the two things that would look to be the obvious choices to send threats to, have not been sent anything.

It's hard to believe that anyone would care enough about such an absurd series as to go to all this trouble, not to mention the very likely possibility that they'll be caught and spend some time in the slammer over it. Oh, well: crazy people are crazy.

Wheels don't all touch the ground. Propeller Cap is missing a blade. Any number of other quotes to indicate that this person is in need of help.

I hope the Tokyo Metro finds them before they can do genuine harm.

There's been 10 counts of this crap now? This is pretty ridiculous. Someone needs to catch this nutjob before he really does hurt someone. I don't care how over the top Kuroko is there's no need to feel this far and I highly doubt the author of Slam Dunk has this much contempt for it.

No, it isn't. The crazy individual certainly went through all the trouble in causing a lot problems for the author and fans to simply enjoy the series. And some people really go all the lengths in doing such things in harming themselves and others.

Insanity has it, but what is normal for some people isn't for others.

this will just make the anime and manga more popular. I bet this is from slam dunk fan(s) too.

Frankly it's the other way around....

The Kuroko's Basketball anime and manga is very popular as it is; they have already released dvd/bd, character song cds, drama cds and light novels; and among other merchandises. This continues threat of the individual wants the creator to stop publishing for the lack of thereof parody, and going as far as threatening the voice actors and doujinshi circles.
