    This is so heartbreaking. KyoAni is one of my favorite studios ever. I absolutely adore them. They're one of the pillars of the anime industry and a studio known for their work ethics. An overall great studio. It's so sad to see this tragedy happen to your favorite studio or anyone at all. Nobody deserves this. An indispensable talent is lost. He directed some of my favorite anime. So many talented people are lost today. I'm following the news and so far, there are 33 deaths. THIRTY-THREE. 33 talented people died today because of a selfish cunt. Their database that contained some of their storyboards, etc. got caught in the fire as well. I hope the fucker rots in hell. I am fuming right now.

    Rise KyoAni :cryingk:

    Lucky star and so many of the other animes listed were my shit. To know he does is heartbreaking to the max. I was never really familiar with the creators of certain animes, but I'll never forget him.
