Takahashi Wanted to Make Everybody Feel Happy
Some fans found Takahashi’s advice offensive. She made it clear that they would take regular bathtubs. Takahashi did not need to remind people about the importance of taking care of their body odor. Others saw it to be a show of Takahashi’s kindness. She cared about her audience and how they felt. Fans were reminded by Takahashi to take care of their hygiene and to bring their tickets, wallets, and phones.
The hundreds of bodies that are packed together in tightly-knit spaces like concert halls and concerts can make people sweat. This causes them to exude a lot of body odor which can put a damper on their experiences. Takahashi, one of many, is taking measures against a stinky body. K-Pop concerts that have larger venues often provide deodorants to their fans. A few anime conventions remind their attendees to take a shower.
