Minase Inori, a name and face that many otaku(s) know. A young female seiyuu who got her career rise in 2014 due to her role in Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? as Chino. Her career rise even more in 2015, making her received the seiyuu award as Best Female Seiyuu of 2015 at the age of 20. This year, in 2016, her career still going strong, stronger than any other seiyuu in GochiUsa. You won’t miss Inorin especially with her role as Rem in Re:Zero, Segawa Akane in Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?, Reventon Fuuka in ViVid Strike, and some other titles that put her in leading roles.
Inorin has released 3 singles so far. Her latest single, titled Starry Wish was just released on November 9, 2016. She supposed to make appearance on LisAni! Live Taiwan but suddenly her appearance is canceled due to a 19-year-old Taiwanese threaten to kill her. The threat was published via twitter. The guy who made the post said, “I’ll give 10 million for those who murders Minase Inori. Murder her in real life”. Luckily, the guy who threatened her is already arrested. Appearantly, the guy suffered mild mental disorder. That’s the good news.
The bad news however, her agency decided to cancel her appearance in her appearance at LisAni! Live Taiwan and several promotional events for her 3rd single “Starry Wish” across Taipei and Tokyo. Too bad… Isn’t it? Well… I can imagine overseas fans were hoping to see her live performance. But now… it is ruined… because one dickhead…
To close this, I simply don’t understand people’s mind. Why do they did something horrible as this? Inorin is still lucky because she isn’t harmed and the culprit was arrested real fast by the police. But some weren’t as lucky as her. See how Nitta Emi suffered mental damage due to someone leak her scene in Adult Video earlier this year right after μ’s disbanded? And if you didn’t know, Tomita Mayu, a Japanese idol was stabbed 20 times by a deranged fan, which is even worse. I don’t know why being popular in Japan have this kind of risk. There is always someone who don’t like it when you’re success. Shit happens, eh?
