July 2019 Patreon Sketchcards - #SupportKyoAni
After hearing the news of arson at the Kyoto Animation studio a week ago, I switched from my previous theme of summer flowers to titles that the studio worked on. I think it's important not to talk about the person who set the fire, but instead -- the amazing mass of work KyoAni has worked on over the years. If you're not familiar, I recommend giving them a try. So much care has been put into each title and each is memorable in their own way.
Last year, 2 of my 4 favorite anime were KyoAni works -- Liz & the Blue Bird (a Sound! Euphonium spin-off movie) and Violet Evergarden (a Netflix original series). I had a 3rd in my notes for Hyouka, which originally came out in 2013, but I only saw it last year during the Crunchyroll-Funimation streaming partnership (which has now ended).
The cards were randomly shipped out to my top-tier patrons for July. ♥
