Japanese publishing company Kadokawa posted a public apology earlier today, expressing “profound regret” for doing something that upset fans. While observers are not quite sure what incidents the company could possibly be referring to, Kadokawa promised to conduct and internal investigation and reflect upon its actions so incidents like this don’t happen ever again.
“We know we did a really bad no-no and that made people sad,” the statement read. “We really really sorry and we pinky-swear we will try to be better in the future and not hurt people’s feelings.”
“We are so sincerely sorry. Please watch the new season Kemono Friends,” the statement concluded.
