The production committee of B Gata H Kei announced in the official website that the production studio and the scenario writers of the anime have been receiving threatening letters persistently. The letters threaten to inflict injury on the producers unless they alter the content and the expression of the anime. The production committee refused to give in to the threat and has already reported the incident to the police.
Wait. Is a girl wanting to become a slut really THAT controversial? If it was a shoujo (or even a josei), I could understand, but it isn't. It is (an adaptation of) a seinen. In other words, it is aimed at males aged 18 or above. If the girls don't like it, they shouldn't be watching it. Besides, the manga has been running for 6 years, hasn't it? Why hasn't the author received any death threats yet?
Unless this is about TV censorship (which is extremely tight in Japan), in which case, they should have aimed their shots at AT-X and the other broadcasters instead, as they were the ones who deemed it OK to broadcast.

They just heard the premise of 'a show about a girl who wants to have 100 sex partners,' didn't even BOTHER to see an episode and immediately went on to death threats
That's exactly what I was thinking. It probably was someone that didn't even bother watching the show; just made a personal review based on the synopsis. In the end the show is not about a girl being a slut, it's about two young people starting to get into adulthood. But I don't have to tell this to anyone who has watched the show and has the least bit of brains.
The show actually depicts a very normal and natural thing: sexual interest. Both men and women have it, and men aren't the only perverts out there. It's just that women are more reserved about it (some women that is).
I guess this doesn't surprise me, but I really don't see the issue. I thought it was great and enjoyable, and I find the fact that people are this angry over some of the content in the anime laughable. Then again, I'm not sure what the reasoning behind the threats were. It seems predictable but I'd like some more information.
Excpected a Sex scene at the last episode and they had fap equipments prepared. But it ended up with no Sex scenes, so now they wasted cash on the equipments and now they are threatening him.
Not really the case because there's hentai of her having sex readily available on the net. The threats come from the increasing presence of moralfags in Japan that don't want to see a girl portrayed as a slut or as wanting to be a slut. I can't wait to see these threatening moralfags sent to prison for a long time.

Someone's probably pissed at the lack of "purity" again.After all,their detailed dreams of having a passionate first night with the fictional what's-her-name are threatened if she isn't "innocent" enough.
And no,it's hardly about ecchi content,it's about certain wankers' Waifu-of-the-day not measuring up to their masturbatory standards.We have seen that before with Kannagi and that random moe manga.
