A rather interesting event has occurred in the Chainsaw Man Fandom this week, more particularly, with its creator, Tatsuki Fujimoto. During the last week, the Chainsaw Man fandom was surprised that Fujimoto’s sister’s Twitter account was suspended due to suspicious activity. This, of course, was disappointing, but what shocked everyone was the fact that the suspended account that was supposedly used by the mangaka’s sister is apparently an account he personally uses!
Chainsaw Man’s mangaka is known to be a quirky and fun personality, but this occurrence was certainly something that the fans could not have foreseen! Under the alias Koharu Nagayama, Tatsuki Fujimoto began posting live impressions of the Chainsaw Man anime right when it was released, providing fans with live feedback on the animation, screenplay, etc.
However, after all the fun and games, Twitter became suspicious of the user’s age (Twitter users must be above 13 years old) as “Nakayama” apparently has been in her third year of elementary school ever since the account was created.

After a while, a new, anonymous user replied to a tweet claiming that he was Tatsuki Fujimoto, even going as far as to beg the editor of the Chainsaw Man manga, Shihei Lin, to believe their claim. When the whirlwind died down, Shihei Lin confirmed the following day that the new user claiming to be Fujimoto was actually him, and fans were thrilled!

At the moment, Tatsuki Fujimoto is desperately trying his best to reinstate Koharu Nakayama’s account and reaching out to Twitter for help. The mangaka has been posting about his experience while trying to get his sister’s account back, and at the same time, he’s also been posting random trivia about his favorite mangas (Welcome Back, Alice by Shuzo Oshimi) and other Ghibli Films like Princess Mononoke and Spirited away. Tatsuki Fujimoto also promised fans to post more live impressions of the manga on his temporary Twitter account.
