#PrayForKyoani This was the last journal updated on Kyoani’s website before the incident. Dude was writing about how he’s looking forward to harvest the tomatoes they planted on the balcony and preparing for the next anime. Now it’s all gone. I’m literally shedding tears😢 pic.twitter.com/nDru5hpwoD— Waylee_S (@zeroXlightG) July 18, 2019

I can't believe in the matter of an hour it just got a lot more personal. Yasuhiro Takemoto, the director of Clannad and K-On was killed in the attack. Literally my top 2 anime of all time. We've lost a mastermind today. I'm torn apart. #PrayForKyoani pic.twitter.com/BUCKp0mK7C— Shai (@theShai_chan) July 18, 2019
