A series of Twitter posts made by Akari Kito recently went viral for quite considerable reasons. In the posts that she later deleted, she wrote: "Greetings from Nagoya, it is snowing", indicating that she moved from Tokyo to Aichi Prefecture to her parents' home.
While it sounds like the most natural thing in the world, especially around this time, the voice actress received a shower of criticism (which is why she removed the posts) because Tokyo Prefecture is currently going through the COVID-19 outbreak. , with 3,856 new cases reported just on December 30. In fact, local authorities fervently pleaded with their inhabitants to refrain from leaving Tokyo Prefecture to prevent the spread of the disease, a situation that Akari Kito, they say, ignored. The issue of the COVID-19 pandemic is quite serious currently in Japan, how will this scandal affect the voice actress in the future?
