So I wonder if there were threat letters addressed in the same manner as popular franchises like Gundam or some popular moe crap that everyone loves(K-On, Haruhi, etc) would these stores also discontinue merc given the events of what's going on with Kuroko? Because I can easily see how people who would hate a particular franchise look at how easy it is to disrupt a franchise's merchandise, and take the same route with threats. I mean, at this point, what can stop him/her/them?

Well, I recall somebody managed to disrupt a Touhou event, but the copycats don't really seem to have had the pull this guy does. Whether or not that's because they found out the hard way they don't take knives to the head as well as Meiling is something we can only guess.

It's either that, or he's proving he has the means and should be taken seriously.

Or it was a legitimate attempt to poison someone, and he just doesn't know what he's doing. Which really doesn't make him any less dangerous.

This guy's a freaking terrorist...you're telling me after all of the letters and evidence found in multiple crimes that they can't get this bastard?

And cancelling all of these events only lets him win. Every event cancelled allows him to get bolder and bolder.

As long as nobody is willing to stop him. Personally, I wish this could go away, but, since I live in a different country than this guy, there's nothing I can do.

Funny that you mention moe in your response: a Neptunia event was disrupted not too long ago, I guess by a guy with a knife. That appeared to be a one-time thing, though. Also, there was the Touhou disruption that was already mentioned.

A terrorist using a puny amount of nicotine? Japanese terrorists are lame. This whole Kurobas thing is lame. Let the girls have their porn damnit.

Can someone explain to me how a person can put anything in packaged food? How is that even possible? How would they even gain access to the stuff without getting caught?

I mean do they work for a company that packages this food?

Maybe I am not thinking this through but I am just not getting it.

There's a lot of space for a small hole to inject things - and how many people actually inspect the foil wrapper instead of simply ripping it open?

In before the terrorist sets up a patsy to get arrested, making you think it's all over, and then finally acts on his threats.
