Takahashi was Trying to Create a Positive Experience for All
Some people found Takahashi’s advice offensive. While it was obvious that regular baths are necessary, it seemed unnecessary that Takahashi remind one to take care of their body odor. Other fans saw this as a display of Takahashi’s kindness. It showed her concern about her fans’ time at the concert. She reminded them to bring their tickets and wallets, as well as charge their phones.
There are hundreds of bodies packed into tight spaces, such as concerts and conventions. People sweat, and this can make it difficult to breathe. Takahashi was one of many people who took measures to stop stinky bodies. K-Pop fans who attend larger concerts have received deodorants at their entrance. Some anime conventions have posted reminders to fans to shower.
