Special Thanks to Jenny Perillo
SciFi Japan has been asked to share details on the GoFundMe campaign set up for the victims and the families of those effected by the tragedy at Kyoto Animation. This GoFundMe has been launched by Sentai Filmworks based in Houston, TX.
The campaign can be found at gofundme.com/f/help-kyoani-heal. Please show your support.
On July 18, 2019, an arsonist set the Kyoto Animation studio on fire injuring several people and leading to the loss of lives. Details on this unbelievable act are still developing.
Sentai Filmworks hopes to help the KyoAni team during this time of need and asks that you join us in this endeavor.

Although the situation is still developing, it is clear that our friends at Kyoto Animation (KyoAni) have suffered greatly. In addition to the loss of life, many lives will be forever changed. Like all of you, we wanted to take action to help however we can. That is the purpose of this Gofundme effort.
We’ve known KyoAni through their many works that have inspired, influenced and entertained us over the years. They are true masters of their art and one of Japan’s national treasures.
Your pledges and the funds we raise are intended to provide the most direct, meaningful assistance possible to the victims of this heartbreaking tragedy. We are coordinating with others in the Japanese anime industry within Japan to ensure that funds collected reach those in need. We will continue to provide updates as those details develop.
For now, I want to thank everyone for their kindness, generosity and support of this effort. The outpouring of pledges and messages of support has been tremendous. Please help us continue this effort.
