On July 18th, 2019 an arsonist caused multiple fires at Kyoto Animations Studio 1 resulting in one of the deadliest massacres in Japan's history since World War II. Many of KyoAni's works have helped us in one way or another. It's time for us to help KyoAni.

How you can help

KyoAni's works have helped us in so many different ways, whether it was by teaching us life lessons or letting us bond with other people. Since so many of us care about the studio there are many different ways to help that it can be overwhelming. I hope to keep this updated as much as possible. There doesn't even have to be money involved, just watch and appreciate their work!
