Controversy[edit]

On April 19, 2016, Japanese conservative fan Yuuken SS (ユウケンSS, Thunder Yuuki) circulated a rumor on Twitter that Chinese and Korean people were looting Kumamoto following the April 14, 2016 earthquake,[citation needed] and appealed to people to establish vigilantes parties with hunting guns.[citation needed] He was going to participate Kemoket as the representative of his Pokemon doujinshi group, 携帯獣愛護会.[8]

On April 22, 2016, he apologized for his claim, alleging that he was under the delusion that left-wing anti-racists (called "Counter" or "Shibaki-Tai" in Japanese) would assault him at Kemoket,[citation needed] appealing for help on Twitter [citation needed] while consulting the police.[8]

On April 25, 2016, he appealed to other like minded people, like Japanese mangaka Toshiko Hasumi (a known conservative manga artist and comfort women denier),[citation needed] to support him and Kemoket from an attack of Japanese counters, which resulted on the rumor of anti-racists assault not only would take action against Yuuken SS, but also other participants as well.[9]

On April 27, 2016, Kemoket banned Yuuken SS from the event.[10] On 3 May, Kemoket 5 was held without disruption.
