The way the generic archetypes in this children's show act sure are important

(No need to reply to tell me that they're not that generic, I actually probably agree with you, but in the context of death threats...)

Sigh... Some fans are absolutely ridiculous.

Imagine being this upset about a fictional cartoon couple that you'd wish death on a real person. Utterly ridiculous.

Is the Japanese fanbase as upset as the western one over this episode?

This kinda reminds me about that time in Naruto Shippuden, where Sakura confessed false feelings for Naruto so that he wouldn't get himself killed attempting to redeem Sasuke. I don't recall people getting harassed for that, but the fanbase still thinks she was being a thot, even though both her and Ichigo were only being protective. Either way, seriously people, grow a life.

Ah the ever present specter of strongly worded language on the internet.

Social media is a curse, as it takes the worst of the internet and funnels it directly into everyone's faces. Why, back in my days everybody and their friend would just grumble hyperbolically in an IRC chat if something happened in a show worth grumbling about. In fact, that's what I do. A few forum accounts and an IRC group of friends.

Though as to who is 'behind this', didn't the article say it was fans that are upset with the direction of the show in that episode? Luckily my lack of social media presence and having not seen the show in question I should hopefully be insulated from mean text.

Wait, what? Sorry, I don't do Twitter, or follow fandoms much.
That episode was great! I don't understand people.

What do people want in their anime, characters to hold hands and sing kumbaya every week? We... kind of need drama to happen to make it interesting.

And this plot twist has been telegraphed pretty much since the beginning of the series and certainly in recent episodes.

They weren't the only ones, unfortunately.

Ichigo's seiyuu, Kana Ichinose might also have been receiving death threats! It was mentioned on Reddit.

This anime was certainly the best of last season and still manages to stand out this season. Many empty ANN criticisms did not prevent public appreciation. The anime in the matter of discussion conquered until surpassing to the funky Violet Evergarden. Originals are cool, but few people appreciate them. Sometimes writing is not superior as a Light Novel of fame, but it brings something other than the usual they entertain.

Many people have a huge prejudice with originals, but in recent times they have given us enough content to discuss. lol

What makes this all even stupider is that the series is still ongoing and, what, only mid-way through...?

It's almost as if the story isn't over or something... Rolling Eyes
