After police arrested a 32-year old fan after he allegedly emailed her death threats, Ayana Taketatsu assured fans she’s OK. In her twitter page, the OreImo and K-On seiyuu also told fans not to worry about her.
She also talked about the incident on her blog. There, she said that she has had plenty of “frightening days” in the past few years. She also said that she has already received thousands of threatening emails, and added that there are many other things the news hasn’t reported on. However, she did admit that she’s now feeling relieved, but with mixed feelings and a bit of sadness. In her blog, she admitted that the reports in her incident would lessen these sort of threats.
The police also reported that Ayana Taketatsu’s agency has received around 7,000 threats directed at the seiyuu since 2014. As for the seiyuu herself, she made a name for herself voicing Azusa Nakano in K-On!. She also voiced Kirino in OreImo, as well as Hotaru Shidare in Dagashi Kashi.
