Hopefully they can pull through and come back with minimal downtime. Must be nerve wracking to have a fire like that.

Just hope they had backups for all their digital. The terrible loss in a fire is all the physical stuff that can't be replaced (been there). For a creative business that may have lots of old drawings and such, it's very disheartening. Not to mention probably tons of hard-to-replace and often sentimental figures, posters and other merchandise sitting around everywhere.

I'm hoping that everyone escaped unhurt. I would be sure they have back ups in place for there games and other works. Lets just hope the down time is minimal and that they can pull through this without much problem.

One of the translators on MangaGamer (I.E. someone who would be well informed) said it was just a warehouse fire so nothing to worry about apparently.

Well aren't we the consummate callous Internet tough guy. Be warned, future remarks of this nature in this thread may be considered trolling and dealt with accordingly.

I could make a snarky comment about this but I won't. There's a typo. The byline (or whatever it is) should read "Fire station still assessing cause," not "Fire station still accessing cause."

...Not that I remember, but if that 'did' happen, I doubt they lost that much cash. I mean what with digital downloads, there isn't a point to physical editions today ASIDE from collector's editions.
