Threats towards Anime Industry: Man Arrested in Kyoto

Reports in Japan claim that a man with a history of making online threats towards people in the anime industry has once again struck, this time resulting in his arrest. The suspect, identified as Fukuda Kishimoto, has been charged with making threats against the voice actress from the anime ‘Attack on Titan.’

Arrest and Charges

A 25-year-old man from Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto City, has been arrested and charged with posting murder threats on an internet bulletin board directed at the voice actress Yui Ishikawa. Kishimoto, whose occupation is unknown, admitted to the charges, which led to his arrest by the Akasaka police station in November 2023.

History of Threatening Behavior

This incident is not the first time Kishimoto has faced legal consequences for such behavior. In 2020, he received a fine of 500,000 Yen for making murder threats on an online bulletin board, that time directed towards an anime director.
