Anime has had a major resurgence worldwide in the last few years, but that doesn’t mean the medium is welcomed by everyone. As a new report details, fans at a Russian anime convention were forced home after the event was taken over by violent protesters. The event, which is called AniDag Festival, was set to begin the week of November 25 but found itself shuttered when more than 100 men gathered to stop the gathering. The men were said to have promised to “shoot” and “kill” fans for allegedly “corrupting” the youth of Daghestan.
