Sentai Filmworks has started a fundraiser to help those affected by the fire.

Even if you can't donate, please show KyotoAni your support :)

If you would like to donate here is the link:

Edit: You can also support Kyoani by purchasing High Res pictures from their official website. This goes directly to kyoani.

You can find a detailed way to do it here incase you arent familiar with japanese: twitter.com/gok...

Might be worth noting that Animate have started putting up donation boxes in their stores, so anyone living in Japan can donate through them as well.

I agree with what Act says below on the difference between buying from company and crowdfunding. Either way, I think everyone has their own way of contributing to Kyoani regardless of whether it goes to company or it goes to victim fund. As long as you are doing something to help Kyoani go through, such as buying Blu-ray or goods, or simply donating to Sentai, you are "helping". That's all that matters in the end. Everyone has their preference over the method they would like to use. There is no right or wrong to that as long as your intention is good.

Please don't try to convince people not to do things just because you feel suspicious. Unless you can prove that it's a scam or have a really good point there, otherwise it's not the right timing to say this kind of things.

You seem really confused about what victim comp funds are and how companies work financially, to the point that I'm struggling to address what you're bringing up. This is not a fund for KyoAni, the company, because a company is not a person who could be hurt in a fire. It's for the employees as individuals to help cover expenses. That's what a victims' fund *is*. Again, they are *really common*.

There's a lot of protocol in place for how they distribute money. Sentai is a big company and will have lawyers on hand who are familiar with all this. Typically a separate charitable organization is established to be in charge of fund distribution. Those affected then apply to the charitable organization for coverage of things like medical care, funeral costs, out-of-work coverage, and distress. People who receive assistance are not considered to have 'foreign income.'

Kyoto Animation Co, Ltd, is not actually involved in any step of this process by design. None of what you buy from the company today will be processed any differently than any other purchase you've ever made. You cannot earmark purchases from their store for like, salary increases (????) or whatever you seem to have in mind. It should be obvious why a corporation is not put in charge of fairly doling out money to victims who are probably going to be suing them for things like workers' comp.

Anyway, I don't want to eat this thread, but I also don't want people to think something shady is going on here. If you have other questions about how victim funds work or how organizations distribute funds to people in need, you can PM me. I've become, unfortunately, very familiar with this process.

Act1 jaar geleden#64038585It literally says "Your pledges and the funds we raise are intended to provide the most direct, meaningful assistance possible to the victims of this heartbreaking tragedy."

What does this even mean? Who at KyoAni endorsed this? Who says KyoAni is going to fill out taxes for thousands of dollars of sudden foreign income? I don't believe Sentai would pocket the money, but there's a grey area here where they've just slopped this GoFundMe together for people to throw money at in a time of crisis, it's far too vague to trust blindly. But if people want to be blindly sympathetic and throw money at Sentai under the guise of believing it's helping KyoAni that's on them. Let's see in six months what becomes of this.

Act1 jaar geleden#64038585And no, they wouldn't tell people to buy from their store, because giving the company money does absolutely nothing to like, cover victim medical, rehab, or funeral costs. I'm not sure why you seem to think purchases from the company site go directly into the pockets of employees, but that's just not how it works. It's not how any company works.
I'm not sure what your beef with Sentai is, but these kinds of victim-fund drives are really, really common after things like this. Sentai stepping up to organize it is actually pretty admirable, but if they hadn't someone else likely would have because, again, this is really common.


They haven't told people to donate, period. All of these stupid otaku buying Blu-Rays and maxing out their inventory are actually a burden. Buying digital content from their site DOES directly support them by giving them money into at least one of their accounts as I've done it myself. KyoAni don't have to do anything on their part.

I have no beef with Sentai. But if people think they're donating to this GoFundMe for KyoAni and not Sentai they're DEAD wrong.

comfy1 jaar geleden#64017106Where does it say that? The GoFundMe page is super vague, it doesn't tell you where your money is going. Sentai isn't affiliated with KyoAni. Sentai are just strongarming the situation to look like heroes, if they actually cared they would talk about being able to purchase digital images through their site, but they won't, because it doesn't involve them. Why are they trying to accept donations on behalf of another corporation in the industry without their permission? It's actually so unprofessional when you think about it.

Act1 jaar geleden#63969250This is intended to be a victims' fund, not to go to the company itself. Buying from the online store will not help in the same way.

Thanks for the Kyo Ani link. I'm really skeptical of any type of donation site.

Elixir1 jaar geleden#63982614Please do not donate to this gofundme page. Gofundme takes a percentage, it's unofficial, there's no guarantee KyoAni will actually see any of the money and you're better off just buying stuff from their actual site (as mentioned below, such as purchasing their digital images, which cost them nothing to ship to you and they receive the money directly).

GoFundMe doesn't take a percentage (they dropped the platform fee a couple years ago and rely on donations now), just CC transaction fees. It's true that it's unofficial and not sanctioned by KyoAni yet, but hopefully the whole thing will become more transparent soon.


For those wanting to buy digital images as support from the KyoAni shop, the link is
kyoani.shop-pro...

twitter.com/zet... - Someone posted a guide to purchasing from the website if you need help.

There's so far no confirmation if that's even the case since that is more of Facebook post.

Others have mentioned it before that his status is still unknown: twitter.com/nic...
