I knew yesterday about the Kyoto Animation arson in the news, but I had taken the matter seriously as I thought.
Perhaps, until July 17, 2019, Kyo Ani was operating as usual, and would have been working on works in earnest, and the next day was taken up as such sad news. I felt a feeling like "The world line that we originally belong to was damaged and thrown to another line".
Of course, "events" are not only good things, but also bad things, "events" by the overlap and entanglement of things (maybe called "causes" or "coincidence") before the event becomes an event. I think it happens as a strike, but what I think in this case is that "Is it really necessary on our world line?"
Well, in this meaning, people call it "unreasonable". However, I feel that the level of unreasonableness this time is the best class. Of course I think that there are individual differences, but for those who used to anime in the 2000-2010s, I think that I will be indebted to Kyo-ani, and I will have a big influence on anime formation in my 20s. Because I've been given even more personally deep wounds.
Up until now, when I saw the news, such as terrorism, the earthquake, etc., to be honest, I thought "It's irrelevant to me" and I had no intention to donate.
But this time, I thought, "I have to do something about this."
It is because, of course I like animation, and I work in the animation industry, but for many reasons, it's more spontaneous emotions.
I do not know how to say something about this incident that exceed the amount of my own word,
I sincerely pray for the victims, survivors, and Kyoto animation.
