The above is entirely true ... though I will chime in to say I really enjoyed Hyouka

Sigh.

I am serious. I have not watched anything produced by KyoAni.

But just because I haven't watched any of their works, it doesn't mean I can't still be sad and perturbed by this heinous attack.
Me neither. It was until a few days ago I discovered they made Clannad, an anime that my sister enjoyed. Sadly, I can't donate because I don't have a credit card.

Dear Supporters and Followers,

As you may already know, Kyoto Animation has opened an account to receive donations which they’ve shared via their official website (京都アニメーションホームページ). We have been in contact with their representatives in Japan to finalize the details of delivering your generous donations made through this GoFundMe drive to the victims and their families.

Together we started this movement to help those in need. And together we’ve far exceeded that original goal with over $2 million in donations raised.

Even though the fundraising phase of this drive will conclude at the end of July, we won’t rest until your contributions reach the KyoAni victims and their families in a direct and meaningful way.

Donations made through this GoFundMe drive will not be touched until the details for distribution have been confirmed. We will continue working with KyoAni’s appointed representative and we will continue to provide updates as they become available. An update on this has been shared by KyoAni’s legal counsel through their social channel in Japanese (View: https://twitter.com/DaisukeP/status/1154181288183521280
).

There are no words to describe the outpouring of love and appreciation our community has for the Kyoto Animation family. They know the world is supporting them, and we are dedicated to continuing that support in the days to come.

Thank you,
John Ledford

So in other words, they've figured/worked out the logistics of it.

In other news, I heard that one of the people unaccounted for is the Full Metal Panic Fumofuu/Second Raid direction; his father posted that he hasn't been able to get into contact with him since the incident. So, yeah. :/

Thank you for posting

Also no one has to feel bad for not having watched any of their shows. Different strokes for different folks I just love love love slice of life.

Two of our girls have autism and I honestly think Anime helps them. My husband seems to think it’s the very obvious emotion displays it’s easier for them to understand. KyoAni is just so wholesome (maybe not Dragon Maid lol)
