The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was the first anime I ever watched and to this day it's still my all time favorite. Brings back so many fond memories. I loved dunking on endless eight (even though I later came to realize it was genius). Mikuru Asahina was my first anime crush. The story is absolutely incredible, and The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya only made it better.
This is really sad to see. It now says 23 people are dead. I don't know what possessed this man to set the building on fire, but it's truly disgusting. Clearly this man had some internal struggles he couldn't cope with, but it's absolutely unacceptable to take the lives of so many people just because you're suffering or because you couldn't get help.
My thoughts are with Kyoto Animation, the victims, and their families. God bless.
