Mentioned he "never meant to carry out the threat"? Bullcrap. That's an excuse heard again and again and he's desperately trying to get out of trouble, no luck.

Did this moron think that in a post-Kyoani fire Japan that the studios would not take any threats against them seriously? Then he is sorely mistaken and honestly, if Kodansha is thinking about pressing charges against this guy then I don't blame them at all because honestly, after what happened with Kyoto Animation last year, would anyone take that chance? I wouldn't.

What that arsonist did to Kyoani last year was unthinkable and for many studios that received death threats since then, they should not take any threats against them lightly because if what happened against Kyoani can happen, it can happen to them too.
