Not surprised by any of these things at this point unfortunately. I’ve seen this happen with all sorts of big series. Anyone remember the death threats the creator of Tokyo Ghoul got for not advancing a certain ship or something like that? I can imagine that Khara got death threats for a similar reason, going off of what I’ve heard about 3.0+1.0.

Possibly, but I have to imagine it's just people upset over absolutely anything freaking out. If it's not a ship, it's the way a character acted, or the way they think it ended bad. Fan bases will go out of their way to cause problems instead of just saying don't watch it and stepping away.

This reminds me of what happened when End of Evangelion came out.

Wasn't the tv series' ending what caused the controversial response?

I’ve read the tweets that supposedly caused Khara’s reaction, but there were no death threats or of violence that I could see. Maybe Twitter had already cleaned up by then?. Most of them were angry rants about how the staff had put their personal feelings before the fans. Not more than the usual in any Eva discussion after a couple of beers. But considering Anno’s story with EVA fans, maybe Khara felt they had to be pre-emptive.

Yeah, that's it. EoE even included shots of spray painted walls at Gainax.

Eva fans did this in 2019 for weeks against Khara's translators too. It's pretty disgraceful.

Fans can be pretty rough, sometimes...I feel bad for the studios and staff.

The way people view art in general will always be very subjective threats to the staff is never the way to go if fans are upset or pissed about the latest film vent that shit elsewhere. Now on the topic of this film I'm ready to see this son of a bitch dubbed!

Spray painted walls and images of the death threats they got for that final episode. I kinda find it funny, though, cause it feels like the biggest F-U to those sending the threats.

Eva fans have always been terrible. That much is known. One of the few franchises where bad fans in the east are worse than ones in the west. At least the concept of Swatting doesn´t exist over there. (Or here.)
