Last summer, the Japanese production company was investigated by the Japanese tax authorities, in fact, for the evasion of 137 million yen (just over 1 million euros). The unfortunate event had caused Hikaru Kondo, the founder in fact, to resign from the office of President.

Now, one year later, the official accusation has arrived.
