KyoAni receives donations from J-Rock singer YOSHIKI and Key Developer

It’s been weeks since the arson attack on Kyoto Animation. On July 18th, someone attacked the Japanese animation company Kyoto Animation which caused not only damage to the building and works, but also took the lives of innocent people. In these past days, fans from all over the world are donating to the company in order to rebuild what was destroyed.

In news regarding to Kyoto Animation, it’s reported that a hefty donation was given to the company by well known Japanese icons. First, J-Rock singer YOSHIKI donated 10 million yen to Kyoto Animation. YOSHIKI is the lead to the band X JAPAN. Here is what he had to say in regards to tragic event on Twitter.

“I am in the United States. I learned about the Kyoto Animation fire on the local news. My heart aches. Japanese anime, and each one of those creators, is a treasure of the world. I hope they recover as soon as possible.”

Here is what he also said in Crunchyroll:

“I’m always doing tours around the world … No matter where I go, animation fans come to my concerts and support my global activities. I’m always grateful to them. And I always want to contribute to the development of Japan’s anime culture, which I consider one of the world’s treasures. I truly share the pain of those who lost their families. I really hope this will assist the bereaved, and also hope that the circle of support around them will expand.”

Last but not least, it looks like a game developer is also contributing to help. Key, a company that previously worked on visual novels like Clannad and Air, is willing to donate up to 10 million yen as well.  Here is what they said on the website:

“To all employees of Kyoto Animation,

We are struggling to find the words to express the deep sadness we feel about the painful tragedy you have gone through. We wish to offer our sincere condolences for those who have passed away, and are praying for as swift a recovery as possible for those who suffered injuries.

Through the wonderful talents and tremendous efforts of Kyoto Animation, the Key works Kanon, Air, and Clannad have been able to emotionally touch people around the world. The thoughts of our employees, as well as those of fans of our works, are with Kyoto Animation.

We look forward to Kyoto Animation continuing to produce heartwarming anime that stir the emotions and give courage to people in Japan and throughout the world.”
