Yesterday, we reported that Log Horizon author Daisuke Umezu, better known by pen name Mamare Touno, was charged with tax evasion.
Earlier today, the author’s official site updated with a short PDF regarding the issue. The text reads:
Dear Readers and Involved Parties,
I have cooperated with the Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau’s investigation into my tax returns. I have filed the appropriate paperwork and completed taxation procedures, so the bureau has already completed their investigation. I have reflected deeply on this incident and will strive to prevent any such incidents in the future. I am extremely sorry for worrying my readership and all involved parties.
I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincerest apology.
Representative Director, Umezu Daisuke (Pen name: Touno Mamare)
