Founder of ufotable receives a new sentence on charges of tax evasion.

No one can deny the great success it has been Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, the value of the brand has risen like foam and almost everything is honey with flakes when it comes to a product that bears the logo, the image or a character from the series of demon hunters.

But what we never imagined, less coming from a Japanese company, is that it would be in the eye of the hurricane due to a problem with the treasury; and is that the director of ufotable, a Japanese animation studio run by Kimetsu no Yaiba and other famous franchises such as Fate / Zero and Fate / Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works to name a few, Hikaru Kondo, was accused of evading taxes of around $ 1.25 million.

Kondo was doubly accused of failing to pay taxes, under the Corporation Tax Law and the Excise Tax Law of Japan. Incredible that with the juicy profits that Demon Slayer has had, its director is involved in such a problem. Thus causing a sentence to spend twenty months in prison, which was later reduced to three years on probation.

Apparently, the president of ufotable used company resources to hide income, in a statement regarding the charges against him he said:

“Today, our company and a representative have been convicted of violating corporate tax laws. We sincerely apologize to our fans who have been supporting our work, as well as all other parties involved, for any concerns or inconvenience caused by this. We will use this incident as an opportunity to make more efforts to ensure our compliance with laws and regulations, as well as proper management to create a production environment that is sustainable to create better works. “
