Fan Threatens Fans: Hatred In The Anime Fandom
You know that one hater fan that does something really drastic and brings a bad name to the entire fandom?
Well, that fan just struck again!
A 15 year old high school student in Toyama, Japan threatened other fans through twitter.
And he was arrested today!
According to the news report, he posted a message on Twitter in July aimed at "Love Live!" fans,
"I'll kill every last Love Live! fan in this country with my own hands. Love Live! fans trick you, and are anti-social like the people who scatter leaflets in the theater and step on them. I can't allow people like that to live. I will surely kill them."
What the heck? His statement doesn't make any sense to me...why is he angry?
As if that isn't enough, it seems that he also posted a photo of him holding a kitchen knife.
Hater fans...SMH at hater fans. Because of the threats, security had to be increased at Love Live! The School Idol Movie screenings.
However, right after his arrest, the student said,
"I like the anime too, but I hated how badly other fans behaved."
Really? Not all fans in a fandom will get along with each other. Doesn't mean we just go around threatening each other.
Where does all the hate come from?
While I'm not sure how serious he was about his plan, I'm glad he was caught and I hope he learns his lesson.

Wow. so he hate how some fans act but what about him is that how he wants every fan to act?
@shantalcamara Exactly! I don't think he though this out logically. He just acted on emotion, probably.
I wish people from different fandoms or even people in the same fandom could get along...the point of a fandom is to bring people together who like the show or manga or book or whatever it is! I know we'll never agree on all the same points, but if we're in the same fandom, obviously we agree that the show or whatever is awesome so it shouldn't matter...but that's just my opinion...
