Kyoto Animation

+ posted by Sky in Site News on Jul 18, 2019 22:23


There are days when nothing is as it used to be.
Today is such a day.

At 10:30 local time, something occured in Kyoto which shook us to the very core and hurt us all deeply.

An attack on an institution that brought joy to not only us, but many across Japan and the rest of the world.



A company, which encouraged us to sing along.



Employees who made us cry so much that even onions turned green with envy.



But we're not the only ones who have a special place in our hearts for the works of this company, many lost something today.

Many families were destroyed today and have lost a loved one.
Lost to hatred, anger and wrath.

Things that Kyoto Animation are strongly opposed to.

A studio that is known for its employee-friendly climate like no other in the industry.
A studio that has given so, so much to us, who love this culture like nothing else.

Today is truly a devastating day for our entire subculture and for Japan as a whole.

Though in this moment dark clouds are passing over us and we lose ourselves to our tears, I am - no - we are sure, Kyoto Animation will come back stronger than ever.

Hate and resentment will never be able to divide that which binds us together so strongly.

The love for Anime, Manga, Light Novels and all media.

That is what Sentai Filmworks showed us right away; under the motto "Help KyoAni Heal" a go fund me page was instantly set up, the gains of which will be used to at least lessen the material damage for the studio.

In light of the news, we at MangaHelpers will have our current major event - the Manga Wars 2019 - on hold until further notice .

Our thoughts are now primarily with the victims and their families.

In deep grief,
The Staff of MangaHelpers

Every work place should have magnetic keycards, that's what I feel at least. I haven't read in detail about what happened, but nevertheless it's a sad thing.
