The Kyoto Animation headquarters was attacked and set on fire yesterday in an act of terrorism. Last I checked, they said 23 were dead including many industry veterans and the director of many of my favorite shows.
KyoAni was one of the few studios known to pay their employees a decent wage, and their animation has always been top notch. Even when their shows weren't my cup of tea, I always respected their work and attention to detail.
I truly think they were some of the most talented animators in the business, and the whole industry is worse off because of this.
Seriously, these people are some of the only ones who have been able to make me both laugh and cry, and this attack feels very personal to me. Why the fuck does shit like this happen?
