Love Live! is so well loved among many anime fans. When I was in Japan there were so many posters everywhere of this show. When I went to the arcade many of the prizes were of the characters from this series. During Halloween I’ve seen some girls and guys (yes guys) dressed as some of the characters from the show.
Now as much as this show is loved, its hated just a much too. Recently I’ve been reading in the news some crazy things regarding this show. The other day a high school student was arrested for making bomb threats against the Love Live! sunshine concert. Then the week before someone vandalized all the manholes in Numazu, Japan that were Love Live themed. There is even a twitter account called @ihatelovelive where they really post hateful things against the show and characters. Even last year I read about another person send g threats to all Love Live fans. Crazy world.
Now, I am not a fan of this show. It was too goodie, happy and kind of annoying. But I’m not going to go all out to make death threats or do insane things like these people. But what makes them this angry over a series?
I don’t know the answer, but maybe one theory could be as I stated this show is literally posted everywhere in Japan. Maybe these people are so tired of seeing it. Maybe it’s annoying to them. That’s like many Americans seeing the Kardashians everywhere hahah
What are your thoughts on this? Is it that serious to hate a show that much to commit a crime?
