Sadly there are always people that act out violently no matter where you are or what you are doing.

Fortunately this time there were no injuries and hopefully the person in question will get the help they need.

According to some tweets I read, the guy seemed to have a personal grudge against Rie Tanaka.

I was at the Arise event. Crazy stuff man. I only saw the bouquets for the celebration of the Neptunia anime. The line for the Arise film was blocked off, so the line took up 5 floors of stairs. FIVE FLOORS.

He said, according to one tweet I read, that she was a criminal or something like that. For what reasons, I don't know.

How long did you have to wait in line? Was everyone able to get in or did they have a cut off number?

Oh no, everyone was able to get in- all seats were reserved ahead of time. We did have to wait about 10-15 mins for the theater to reopen the 6th floor, and waited 5 for the entire line to go through.

At least the event was cancelled because someone actualy DID something unlike the seemingly unending cancellations of Kuroko DJ events.

Glad to hear you didn't have to wait long and everyone got in. Did you enjoy the event.


Yes! The OVA was great, and it was even greater seeing Maaya Sakamoto in person. Me and my friend didn't even know that the time we went was going to have the whole cast and staff thing- It was a pleasant surprise for us.

There are bad people in this world who admire and worship murderers and would be murderers.

The official site mentioned the cancellation, apologizing, but without providing explanations (as I expected).

Psh, if the guy was subdued, they should have continued. You can't cancel everything just because one guy had a knife.
