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.

It’s been a week since the horrific arson attack at the Kyoto Animation  studios. It’s been confirmed that thirty-five lives have been loss because of the fire. I found this news from Crunchyroll on the status report after the attack. According to Crunchyroll, some of the project works survived. It’s been reported that projects and, production materials and ongoing works have been safely secured in a digital server and the server was safe in a room with thick concrete walls. So this good news for the company that the past and current works of anime is still safe.

President of Kyoto Animation, Hideaki Hatta gave a statement in both languages in regards to the attack:

An unprecedented atrocity has robbed many of our friends and colleagues of their bright futures and has left many deeply injured.
News from all over the world tells us that amazingly many number of people has sent us their hearts and prayers, which are like candles in the darkness, for those of us trapped in the darkness of deepest grief.
There are many friends and colleagues who are hospitalized and suffering, fighting for their lives.
Please give us some time.
We promise that Kyoto Animation will continue to create animation that help people have dreams, hope and impress them.
Kyoto animation will continue to make its employees and staff lead happy lives, and contribute to society and local community.
I assure you that Kyoto Animation will not give up, we will not go quietly into the night…we will not vanish without a fight!

Please give us time.

-Hatta to the fans all over the world

On July 29th, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga held a speech conference in regards to the attack and all the donations given to them. There is going to be a bipartisan coalition proposal  in which will help the studios of Kyoto Animation and the victims will be given a tax break. The money received domestically and internationally will be used for the victims and to new animators who wishes to join Kyoto Animation.

This arson attack is a real tradgey that took the lives of innocent people. This company help bring out many lovable anime such as Clannad, Violet Evergarden, Free! and A Silent Voice. With the donations given from all over the world and the works still intact, we can help restore what damaged. We may have lost people, but we should not let their legacy be forgotten. These people created our favorite stories and characters. We need to pray for the familes and friends.
