Racist Dispute on Kemoket 5
On 19 Apr 2016, an anti-China/Korean extreme-right racist Yuuken SS (ユウケンSS, Thunder Yuuki) circulated a false rumor on twitter that Chinese and Korean steal in Kumamoto where the large earthquake occured on 14 Apr, and appealed to establish vigilantes with hunting guns. He was going to participate Kemoket as the representative of his doujinshi circle on Pokemon "携帯獣愛護会".
On 22 Apr, he once apologized for his remark, however he was under the delusion that left-wing anti-racists (called "Counter" or "Shibaki-Tai"in Japanese) assault him at Kemoket and he appealed it on twitter and consulted the police. 
On 25 Apr, he even appealed to other major extreme-right racist like Toshiko Hasumi (a notorious racist/catoornist who denigrated Syrian refugees) to support him and Kemoket from an attack of Counter. As a result there was the rumor that anti-racists assault not only Yuuken SS but also other participants. 
On 27 Apr, Kemoket banned Yuuken SS by mutual consent between Kemoket and him. 
On 3 May, Kemoket 5 was held and never suffered from any serious troubles.
