So, it looks some some jagoff just tried to burn down the primary Kyoto Animation studio. The situation is still developing, but at last count, 30 people were injured and 10 are unconscious.

This looks really bad, I hope nobody's seriously injured.

Hope this isn't actually real, but just a rumor. What the hell, they didn't have to go that far!! What did the studio do to receive that harm anyway??? I hope the staff and everyone recover and stay healthy and safe!

I just read an article about it. This shit is crazy, someone came in, pour gasoline and set the place on fire. They said some people were injured, no deaths. The person who set the place in fire is at the hospital. All that count is that everyone was safe and no one didn’t die.

I wonder what will happen to the anime they were animating this season?

Probably might get delayed as a result and there is a high chance for poor production as well.

What the hell man... Some crazed lunatics out there. Imagine how much of a deranged loser you have to be to go to the lengths of setting fire to the studio, because you're unhappy about something.

this really sucks, the anime industry is awesome, it exists because people who are 'odd' like anime (ie me). cant think of a reason why anyone would want to target it.

im hoping this attack was more of a personal attack ie recently got fired or something. i really do not want it to be more of an idealogical attack agasisnt anime or something stupid like that.

wishing all those affected the best and hope those who have died RIP and those that are hurt have a quick recovery. really sad news

Horrible news, what a laydown. The criminal must've been one of the longest longshots to fire his annoyances, to an anime studio is why I'd beckon one of the most fucked-up and insensible choices as a go-to.

Praying for everyone in recovery.
Really a very sad day for KyoAni staff and beloved love-hate fans of the studio.

WTF I just heard of this. Horrible news. Some sources are reporting 1 death, but NHK have reported that police have confirmed several deaths.

I can only hope and pray that the numbers don't go up. I can't fathom why someone would do this to KyoAni of all places.

Agreed. Really hoping other studios aren't targeted as well.

That shit is saddening as hell. Those people work hella hard to provide us with anime and just the thought that someone would try and fuck with that is mad annoying. My condolences go out to those who died/ are injured. I hope they can bounce back.

I doubt it. I mean, sure there are crazy enough people out there... But this feels like it was deeply personal. Probably a former disgruntled employee back for revenge?

I've seen some GoFundMe's already up by some (major) companies. Do remember that Kyoto Animation (nor anyone from there) has asked for money or donation, they likely had insurance, and Japanese National Healthcare is MANDATORY for everyone.

Sad day for Kyoto Animation. :(

Sounds like they lost upwards of 10 people.

I wonder if the studio will hold together after this.

Saddened by the injury and loss of life, as well as by any creative materials that may have gone up in smoke...

I only heard about this news 10 minutes ago and I'm shocked. Animation workers in Japan already have it hard enough as it is and for this to happen is completely devastating. I know saying words online doesn't amount to much, but I wish the families of these victims all the best and I hope KyoAni can overcome this.

lol i made that kind of motives joke on another thread but ye i hope its really not too

but even so i still like to hear whatever the motive was and im sure the authorities want that too since its their job anyway and with that they can maybe confirmed his mental health or the media will make a meme about anime being bad influence again or what this criminal/arsonist claim that he was ripped off or plagiarize by KyoAni will eventually lead to better laws for that to punish japanese companies doing that or just any other reason/motive/cause to make preventive measures in the future
