On Thursday, July 18, an arson attack was carried out at Kyoto Animation’s studio, resulting in the death of 34 people. This attack is a significant loss not only on human life, but the loss of the studio’s creative work.

Their distinctive style in meticulously detailed character designs, vivid and colorful scenery, and eccentric slapstick comedy won the hearts of many around the world.

In honor of Kyoto Animation, we would like to highlight some of the most beautiful animation the studio has created:
