Woah, this is pissing me off. Shouldn't they be trying to catch this person? I mean, by doing all of these cancelling, aren't they doing exactly what this person wants?

At this rate, we might not get another season soon. This person has too much free time. Also, apart from causing anger and upset within fans, this person should be caught because of the threats/things done that might harm a lot of innocent people!

Hope this will get resolved soon since all of this is making all the fans really upset, what with all the event cancellations. Oh well, to all the Kuroko no Basket's fans, please stay united and don't let this cause you to want to drop out from this manga/anime!

yea, that's right, keep cancelling everything shueisha/what ever company it is, why don't you?
because cancelling every freaking event will make the criminal cower in fear. /sarcasm

sigh, I wish they'd catch that guy already.

Giving into terrorists never works, It only makes things worse.

Correct.

The Japanese, as a people, know this.

I'm wondering what has been done to cause them to act in this fashion, maybe something much more dangerous than hydrogen sulfide was sent by the perp and isn't being discussed / hasn't been disclosed.

Nothing I say here will change the fact that they cancelled the event. But for future measures, they should place A LOT of surveillance cameras around sites that are related to the anime's creator. Company that wants to make money off of KB should fund this project because catching this bastard means possible restoration of all the cancelled dojinshi events and prevention of threats in the future.

Maybe they traced the letters and found out he's an al Qaeda operative in Pakistan where they can't reach him.

Or a 4channer in Alabama.

I think they're not gonna cancel I think they just going to move the event to another country or fans will make a campaign/Petition/protest.

I don't think Comiket is in danger but worst case scenario is that they won't allow Kuroko materials at Comiket if for some reason this guy decides to try and threaten that event too.

All this because apparently some jealous high school classmate wants to ruin the success of the manga ka.

Comiket posted a notice on the 11th that they also had been threatened. No word if it is suspected to be the same person.
