Nihon TV News reported that a 25 year old jobless man was arrested for threatening seiyuu Kadowaki Mai. According to the Metropolitan Police Department, he sent her office a letter "I'll kill your parents within a month." last November. The man has confessed to the crime and said he was a fan of Kadowaki.

According to Mainichi Online, he sent the threatening letter because he believed an anonymous post in a BBS saying Kadowaki is committing adultery. He deposed that he couldn't forgive (the rumor of ) her illicit love as her fan.

I just deleted a large number of off-topic and nonsense posts that offered absolutely no merit to the discussion of this news at all. I'd really appreciate people brush up on the rules; -- particularly 7, 9 and 10, before continuing to post.

The two "Huh?"'s at the beginning made me burst out laughing.

Strange strange people to get flipped out over what was probably a fake rumour, they get generated on the internet all the time.

I remember when Oprah got trolled on her forum and made a big deal about it thinking it was true, now THAT was funny :D

Wow, I think this type of thing is common in Japan, is it?

This kind of thing is common everywhere that has any kind of celebrity. The saddest part is that in most of the cases, the crazy "fan" succeeded in killing someone.
I will never understand how loving someone so much would lead to that kind of action...just goes to show that something isn't wired right :(

This sort of crap happens with celebrities all the time. It's really pathetic when people pull this kind of garbage.
