...So, does sending a knife grant you a stay in the police station? I don't get it. *shrug*

Exactly. I love that everyone is jumping to the conclusion that see sent him cutlery and that automatically makes her the person who was trying to get him to canceled. If she was a hardcore fan wouldn't she be more likely to be threatening someone if they were going to take him off the air?

We have no idea what was sent with the knife. Or if there was some kind of inside joke form one of his roles? Or if she was in fact doing something wrong at all.

For all we know this poor woman's life and reputation is completely ruined because she sent him something reflecting one of his roles to show that she was a fan of that role, having no clue that he was receiving threats this whole time.

...In other words, don't be so quick to drop the axe until you know all the facts or you may condemn many innocent people to death. >.>


well i understand ur point, but she should know better than to send a REAL knife, if it was a joke or reference or somthing, she should have sent a fake one, like a plastic knife or somthing.

That woman was most likely a yangire and sent the knife as a warning. Look at her age though, she needed a life.

Maybe she's just a lonely sad 40 year old (otaku) virgin, and all she needed was a companion cube. But, she incinerated it. Plus, she found out the cake was a lie, and realized that anime isnt real. So she had a mini freak out, and threatened an elementray school and mailed a knife to her dream man, hoping he would bake her a cake, thus proving the cake wasn't a lie..and that he would suddenly become a 2D animated character..and have many many 2D babies with her. Bishie babies. Proving anime to be real.
BUT the police saw she was a threat, and only later did thet realize that she was just nuts..and needed to put her in a 'special' cell.

She was going to send something for her to cut with it too, but the cake was a lie.

You don't say.

Seriously, what's wrong with some fans? Lennon was killed by a die-hard fan, this is kind of a deja vu O.o
