In the past few hours, the editorial department of Shueisha has warned its readers of a fake Twitter account that pretended to be the author of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Koyoharu Gotouge.
The account username was @GotogeKoyoharu, and despite being discovered and erased in a short time, the lead singer of the opening theme song for Demon Slayer's anime fell into the trap, expressing within a post her enthusiasm for the arrival of the author on the social platform.
After Shueisha warned her followers of the falsity of the account in question, the artist deleted her previous post by commenting on that of the publisher with a crying emoticon. This is an unfortunate event that is linked to the various rumors circulating, for some time now, on the life of the cartoonist.
Gotouge, like most Japanese authors, he keeps himself away from leaking sensitive information about his private life, and it was foreseeable - given the media crash that is affecting her work - that someone would try to play a bad joke on her.
Until now Gotouge has had the opportunity to make itself heard through the official magazine of Weekly Shonen Jump, which every week shows the comments of the authors accompanying the new chapter. The Demon Slayer manga officially ended with chapter 205, available for reading on the MangaPlus platform.
His epilogue will leave an important void inside the magazine, and several authors have paid homage to Koyoharu Gotouge's manga and congratulated him.
