Even as somebody who doesn't care about "Kuroko," it's great seeing this guy finally get brought in, if it really is the culprit. People deserve to be able to celebrate their fandom without the threat of violence thanks to immature losers who, most likely, think the "purity" of anime is being threatened or some hokum like that.

Finally! This has been going on for so long that I thought that they'd never catch the guy.

From what I recall, it has nothing to do with Kuroko. The person doing this has/had personal business with the author himself.

I was wondering what was taking the police so long to catch this guy, that criminal must have been very good, but I'm glad this whole nonsense is over, and now Kuroko can continue in peace

According to a yahoo news article linked here, apparently this guy says he doesn't personally know the author at all, and was doing this because he was jealous of Kuroko's success. Which means that the guy who was doing the initial threatening last year is still around? Or did the police catch him, too?

No but seriously, this is the best news for Kuroko fans this year. Only hope that the sick idiots who actually supported the main psycho don't decide to continue to threaten fujoshi. Evil or Very Mad

I hope they caught the right guy and that this nonsense will be over. I know that money was lost and fans were frustrated, but I'm glad that no one was hurt, or worse, killed.
