The Ministry of Agriculture of Japan disclosed that Japanese marine products dealers disguised clams imported from China as Japanese domestic shellfish. The dealers used the names of Tousen Kaname ("Bleach") and Kusanagi Kyo ("The King of Fighters" Game) as imaginary representatives of the dummy companies for camouflage.
One of the dealers deposed that he came up with the disguise when he watched the anime on TV. He also made dummy companies called "Makoto Marine Product", "Kururugi Marine Product" and "Sumeragi Fish". It's unknown the names are related to Itou Makoto, Kururugi Suzaku, and Sumeragi Kaguya.

That's the most SHALLOW, AWFUL, SHAMELESS fish EVER. D:<
I wouldn't even BUY products from there just because of Makoto.
If you're gonna name your company after an anime character, name it after an anime character that everybody doesn't HATE.

Are those guys stupid or something? Of course you'll be noticed if you use a regular bad guy from a regular anime show... Well, that's what you get when you're sensitive for saké.
