Japanese police have arrested a woman who they suspect of threatening to set fire to the offices of animation studio Wit Studio (Attack on Titan, Great Pretender).
According to police in Musashino, the Tokyo-adjacent city where Wit is based, the woman is suspected of sending the studio an email on May 7 that said she would set fire to their building a week later. She was arrested last Wednesday on the charge of forcible obstruction of business.
The 25-year-old woman is from Osaki city, Miyagi prefecture. The police are looking into whether she suffers from mental illness, and investigating whether she has been sending hate email and faxes to the studio since around 2018.
