    I guess looking from another perspective, the people who harassed James Gunn because he insulted Trump might realize they were a little stupid of doing that.

    ^ That article reads like it was written by the very people that got Gunn fired.

    I am just speechless and sad and I will never understand how a person can accumulate so much hatred to be able to do such a cruel deed.

    33 people confirmed dead. This is just beyond awful.

    The story got worse hour after hour. I have no words
    "Often I think about my many comrades fallen by my side. I heard their curses against the war and its authors, the revolt against their murder. And I, as a survivor, believe that I am inspired by their will to struggle, for the idea of peace and human fraternity."

    This article has some good details about the incident

    KyoAni is responsible for a lot of iconic anime Clannad, Haruhi, Chuunibyou, K-On, Amagi Brilliant Park, Lucky Star, Full Metal Panic.
    this is a terrible loss for the anime community and industry.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims families.

    Sentai Films has set up a gofundme to assist the burn victims. It's almost reached its 750k goal.

    The whole thing is just so disturbing. KyoAni has always been generally wholesome and treats its employees well. You'd never imagine something like this happening to them.

    Apparently there was a nursery for the worker's children on the 2nd floor, so there are likely some child victims too.

    I cried a little upon learning that.

    As much as it is well intentioned, as a private company KyoAni may not be eligible to receive it. Instead its a far better option to just purchase any product from Kyoani directly.

    Japan is usually good about having a low crime rate, but when something/someone strikes, it STRIKES.

    My poor KyoAni. My poor Kyoto. I love Kyoto best, this city is too quiet for something like this to happen.

    FFS, every report I heard so far was about the 70 employees.

    In a funny bit of news on this sad day, NASA had to fix the Hubble telescope by turning it off and on again:

    Oh god.

    Source? Please tell me you don't have a source. Or you have a disreputable source.

    Edit-
    My friend says the nursery was in a different building and I choose to believe that at face value.

    Considering the implications, I'm inclined to believe it out of sheer logic, as if that was true, media would be pushing that front and center.

    Of course all sorts of animation studios/media companies are offering their support, but what really gets me is Belgium giving them a TinTin tribute:

    And is this really the worst mass murder in Japan since WWII? Holy crap. C'mon, Disney, where's your support?

    I would think not given all the people we murdered across Hiroshima, Nagasaki, & Tokyo.
