Fire tragic loss of life and legacy at Kyoto Animation on 18 July 2019. Man who fire do this because he think the studio steal his novel. There are 33 people die. Their anime work was destroyed.

First anime from KyoAni I watched in high school is Air.
My PhD Math classmates love to watch anime in their free time, so I watch with them. 
I watched Chunibyo, Hyouka, Kyokai no kanata. Their anime graphics feel magic.

I feel that I want to save their wonderful work in my kusudama collection. I use leftover paper from previous kusudama I made. Purple, pink, lovely colorful for KyoAni.
