The Nikkan Sports newspaper reported on Thursday that a Seijō University student, who is accused of kidnapping a 12-year-old school girl, was a fan of the Precure anime. This prompted voice actress Haruna Ikezawa to respond on Twitter, "…I went to Seijō University. I appeared in Precure. But, that doesn't mean you can say that I have a high chance of committing a crime. They're completely unrelated, right? (I realize that "appearing in" Precure and "liking" Precure are two different things.)"
