What happened to Kyoto Animation last year makes me sick to my stomach to this day. It's great they're able to work on movies and TV shows again. But, no amount of money and/or critical acclaim can ever replace the lives or precious works of art that were destroyed by one psychopath's reign of terror. Thank god Shinji Aoba faces life in prison, there's no excuse for what he did. AT ALL!!!

Also to be fair, there's no real benefit to them doing the contest right now. They have enough works in publication for now, and have several anime already planned that will take a while to make

I definitely don't blame them. I still get very emotional when I think about what happened last July. I can't believe it's really been that long...

I wish them Peace and all the best.

This is also because of COVID-19 still raging. However they are still emotionally scarred from the arson.
