Another is the Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono, who claims that as a friend of Hong Kong, I am very worried about the recent situation, especially the large number of injured people, which makes me very sad. It is understood that Shinzo Abes government just released the list of cabinet restructuring on September 11.

Some netizens expressed their indignation and planned to boycott his cartoons. The topic of Weibo No matter how much I love cherry trees and flowering maple trees, Chinese people are my identity, said a fan of Dunking Master. Goodbye, dunker, goodbye forever. Some netizens expressed their disappointment and said, Just be at ease and draw cartoons. Why do you mix politics with them? As a public figure, there is really no need to express political views on social platforms.
Reasonable resistance will not have bad consequences, only go to extremes, such as hatred to deceive reason, calm to stay out of the situation is just like some peoples intentions. What I see and hear now is a very reasonable boycott. Whether you agree or disagree, you need to communicate rationally. Some netizens think.
It is understood that the new collection PLUS/SLAMDUNKILLUSTRATIONS2 of Dunkers is being produced and will be sold in April 2020. At present, the cover of the new album has been made public. The new album will contain more than 130 illustrations, including 11 new illustrations (including the cover) created by Inoue.
