Anime As many as 33 dead at Kyoto Animation from an apparent arson attack...

Recommended Posts

I have seen some people saying it was a Train Otaku who was mad at the studio for ripping off a song about trains or something.

This is insane. The studio is basically done for.

According to this, Japan has no regulations for requiring sprinklers or indoor fire hydrants. The steps to the roof is a spiral staircase, which acted as a chimney and was where most of the victims were found dead.

I didn't watch much KyoAni anime, but I know how good they are at what they do. All of this just absolutely sucks.

 

A Silent Voice is so good and it's available on Netflix.

 

This all really sucks. They were one of the good animation studios. They gave fair wages, didn't run their animators into the ground, and actually gave women a chance to succeed.

 

I would seriously hate to see them disappear, but who knows how they'd come back from this. They'd need enough money to rebuild and take on new projects, while retaining people who might just look for work elsewhere.

 

At the same time, the survivors must be going through something awful. Everything sucks.

Looks like we have something of a twisted motive.

Sounds like the arsonist submitted a novel for a contest KyoAni was holding and lost in the first round of judging.

Jesus Christ.
