At the time, she had suffered an injury during the "TV Anime Hyperdimension Neptunia's Earliest! Advance Screening Event" promoting the Hyperdimension Neptunia TV anime. Tanaka (voice of Neptune/Purple Heart) attended the event, and a man appeared carrying a knife at the event. Tanaka was injured with a bruised knee as she lost her footing on some steps in an attempt to flee the incident.
Tanaka put her Twitter account on hiatus three days after the incident.
Aside from her role in Hyperdimension Neptunia, Tanaka has voiced major roles in Strike Witches, Hayate the Combat Butler, Squid Girl, Time of Eve, Toradora!, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, the Persona 3 films, and the Precure franchise, among many others.
