Meanwhile, the network the show is airing on-- KIDS STATION --seems to be shrugging off the complaints, even though the protest has garnered over 10,000 names. They do note, however, that the Korean character doesn't appear in the anime...which hasn't stopped the protesters anyway. Perhaps because the official anime website actually DOES list Korea amongst the characters?
I don't think a cancellation is likely to happen, though. And although I feel for them, I really want to see the show, so I hope it doesn't.
...Randomly speaking of South Korea, Japan Probe has an interesting piece in which South Koreans claim that the Japanese make for stingy tourists.
