    33 dead after arson attack at Kyoto Animation studio, dozens injured

    Suspected arsonist planned Japan's worst mass killing in 18 years
    The 41-year-old man seemed to be discontented, he seemed to get angry, shouting something about how he had been plagiarized, a woman who saw the suspect being detained told reporters.
    The explosive blaze killed 33 people and another 10 people were in critical condition, authorities said late on Thursday, in Japans worst mass killing since a suspected arson attack in Tokyo killed 44 people in 2001
    I imagine many of the people who died were in their twenties, said 71-year-old Kozo Tsujii, fighting back tears after laying flowers near the studio in the rain on Friday morning.

    we just came back from Osaka yesterday from a short holiday. Its very shocking to hear such things happening in such a lovely polite country.

    RIP to those that perished and hope those that are in critical conditions make a speed recovery.
