Upsetting news out of Japan: An arsonist attacked anime studio Kyoto Animation on the morning of Thursday, July 18, 2019, reportedly killing more than 30 people. This is the deadliest attack in modern Japanese history.
Kyoto Animation is a prolific studio, whose credits include “Sound! Euphonium,” “Liz and the Blue Bird,” “Violet Evergarden,” “Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid,” and (a personal favorite) “Nichijo.”
Localization partner Sentai Filmworks established a fundraiser to support the KyoAni team, which raised $443,043 in its first eight hours.
