The author of the manga Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! (Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!), Take, became the center of attention on social networks by those users who are waiting to make a fuss about anything, who discovered that the author retweeted a message that suggested that Those who sneaked into the US Capitol facilities during recent events may have been secretly aligned with the group known as ANTIFA (Anti-Fascist Action), which are labeled anti-capitalist or far-left.
The post that Take retweeted (and later deleted) wrote: “This screenshot mentions how the ANTIFA members snuck into the Washington DC motorcade. as supposed followers of Donald Trump. This means that they are trying to make the movement look bad. " Later, Take posted on his account: “It seems like a pretty bad strategy to me. I wonder if that is just to cover up something that is being done behind the scenes. "
The author's posts struck a chord in the Twitter community, for a change, who started a wave of insults towards the author that has not stopped thus far. Some of the most popular comments included:
- “The author of Uzaki-chan is retweeting content that claims protesters in Washington, D.C. they are members of ANTIFA in disguise. "
- "I am extremely shocked."
- "I really like his work, but I can't tolerate this."
- “Oh no, he's not even in the United States. He does not know what is really happening, so it is not his fault but the media and social networks. Now, if an American author had shared it then it would be another story. "
- "Many Japanese fall victim to right wing propaganda and are unable to process the information."
- “Japan is far-right, so this does not surprise me. It's sad but Japan, contrary to what all dreamer posers and weebs believe, has politics very infused in its population. "
- “Many of you are just looking for one more excuse to hate a series of a fictional character, instead of realizing that the author is from the right, which is normal, everyone has the right to be from the right or left. The content of his work has nothing to do with this. "
- "More reasons not to see or read that boring work."
Furthermore, Take has been publishing the manga on Fujimi Shobo publishing house's Niconico Seiga website since December 2017. The play inspired a twelve-episode anime adaptation produced by ENGI Studios, directed by Kazuya Miura and scripts written by Takashi Aoshima, which premiered on July 10 on Japanese television. Despite some controversy, the production of a second season is confirmed.
