The Void

Donate To Kyoto Animation’s GoFundMe

By now, I’m sure the news of the arson attack that was carried out against Kyoto Animation has made the rounds. According to the reports, an unidentified 41-year-old male doused gasoline inside the building and some splashed on workers before shouting the phrase “You die!” and setting it ablaze. As of writing this, there have been at least 33 people cited as dead. Known for their work with titles such as K-On and Violet Evergarden, my heart and sincerest prayers go out to the victims and their families. If you would like to show your support, Sentaifilmworks has made a Gofundme page in response to the relief of the studio and affected parties. You can find the link here in order to donate.

Along with some other smaller anime-centric purchases made this week , this has to be the least romantically endowed of the bunch, but still one I wanted to add to my collection.
