Chainsaw Man franchise is currently at its peak with the anime adaptation of the series going strong. The creator of the manga series, Tatsuki Fujimoto, who actively promotes the anime on Twitter, has been banned from Twitter.
Twitter has been in the news since Elon Musk took over. After the Twitter Blue update, which lets anyone get a verification mark next to their username, many troll accounts appeared, impersonating to be celebrities. This led to a lot of criticism on Twitter management, and many accounts were banned, but Tatsuki Fujimoto’s account has been banned for a different reason.
On his Twitter account, Tatsuki Fujimoto pretends to be his fictitious younger sister named “Koharu Nagayama”. Fujimoto pretends to be Tatsuki Fujimoto’s sister and introduces herself as a third-year elementary school student. Although in every Chainsaw Man anime post, “she comes out of roleplay” and gives live remarks clarifying things of interest and others, this persona is entirely fictitious, and nobody knows why the author does it.
The joke, however, was short-lived. Fans found that Twitter had disabled Fujimoto’s account. Just when fans were theorizing about this ban, the Chainsaw Man editor shared an update, reporting that Fujimoto’s account has been banned due to age restrictions of the platform.
I have been informed that the account of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s younger sister, Koharu-chan, has been deactivated due to problems with her registered age. Her brother, the author, has already contacted Twitter to resolve the situation. Ladies and gentlemen, we’d appreciate it if you can wait for her sister’s return to Twitter. Thank you very much.
This is not the first time a famous celebrity account has been banned due to age restrictions. Previously, Hatsune Miku’s account was deactivated after the development team changed the date of birth on the profile, making her a minor. Miku’s account was back online after the development team contacted Twitter support. Hopefully, Fujimoto sensei will get his account back and will avoid changing the date of birth on his account.
Update (Nov 12): Following the banning of Fujimoto’s “little sister account”, Tatsuki Fujimoto sensei has officially opened a new Twitter account. The new Twitter handle of the author is @ashitaka_eva, and the authenticity of the account has been confirmed by the Chainsman Man manga editor as well.
