Regarding the decline of the memorial visit on July 18

We sincerely express our gratitude for your continued kindness and support.

It has been almost two years since the incident that took place at our 1st studio.
With grief in our hearts, we have been producing animations while supporting each other and have kept moving forward day by day since then.

Although we had been considering holding the memorial ceremony for prayer, in light of the COVID-19 infections, we decided to stream the memorial video on our youtube channel as we had in the past year.

Sunday, July 18, 2021 (10:30-10:40)
*A moment of silence will be held from 10:35
Streamed on YouTube's Kyoani channel
  • *We respectfully request your kind prohibition of visiting.
  • *Flowers and monetary condolence gifts are gratefully declined.
  • *The replay of the memorial video will be available throughout 7/18.
  • *Streamed in Japanese only.

We sincerely ask for your cooperation in refraining from visiting the site of the 1st studio, including surrounded areas, regardless of the date.
Kind attention to the residents in the area is highly appreciated.

We greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
