I can’t. I just, I can’t imagine what can go through a person’s mind to do this. So many innocent people are doing their dream jobs. This place was a place of creativity and passion.
And now it’s been burnt down by some disgruntled psycopath.
I hope he realizes what he did and regrets it. Him regretting it, and not being able to take it back is the worst punishment I can think of.
More importantly, this is the worst news I’ve ever heard in a while. At least nobody was in the building when the Notre Dame burnt down. At least that was an accident. The fact that this many amazing people died, or may never work again because of the insane trauma they just experienced today is without paramount. The fact that this was deliberate is worse. These people died on a whim.
Nobody deserves to have what happened to KyoAni happen to them
I hate to imagine it, but this is going to be the last we see of Kyoto Animation in a long time. 1/5th of their staff, and a large number of their directors were in that building that day, along with some NHK reporters. I don’t want to go into detail. I don’t even know if I want to know who died.
All I can do is donate and pray this never happens to anybody ever again, and that the people affected can heal.
