I'll not make a long post since most people are aware of what happened already. For those who aren't: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-49027178

While I don't know whether KyoAni can even accept the donations as well as insurance I'm still gonna post the link for now. Maybe wait a day or two to see if they are even allowed to accept or want it if you do plan on donating. Hopefully if they are not allowed to accept the donation it can be given to family members of those involved.

You can find the gofundme started by Sentai Filmworks here:

UPDATE:
Kyoto Animation has announced their own donation drive to aid employees and families harmed in the attack.

All donations will be directly received by Kyoto Animation.

Worse part is that this was at Studio 1 which means many of the main staff (directors etc.) were working there at the time. current toll at 26.

That motherfucker bought 40 liters of gasoline and systematically attempted to block off and light fires at all exits to the building.

You can also support KyoAni by buying their hq pictures for around 2 usd each each https://kyoani.shop-pro.jp/

The KyoAni shop is probably better since the money will all go to them. GoFundMe will take an additional 10%.

But it's good to contribute to the GoFundMe so that it hits $500k. I hope that Sentai Films hands all over to KyoAni though.

@mireaderc If it really is officially Sentai Filmworks who opened the GFM then there is no way they wouldn't. That would be a PR nightmare that they wouldn't recover from.

That’s messed up. I hope this doesn’t come off as being rude, was the perpetrator connected to KyoAni in some way?

Wow. Just unbelievable.

No amount of money can help.
Can money bring people back from the dead?
NO!
The studio is finished, forever.

Just read this, and wow. I can't find the words on how messed up this incident is.

It's a sad day, my condolences to the families.
And let's hope they can recover from this disaster.


The studio can be rebuild so as long as people wish it can rise up from the ashes.

So how or rather what did they ripped off him I wonder?
