Kyoto Animation Co., Ltd. (Japanese: 株式会社京都アニメーション, Kabushiki-gaisha Kyōto Animēshon), often abbreviated KyoAni (京アニ, Kyōani), is a Japanese animation studio and light novel publisher located in Uji, Kyoto Prefecture. It was founded in 1985 by husband and wife Hideaki and Yoko Hatta, who remain its president and vice-president respectively.

On July 18, 2019, an arson fire took place at Kyoto Animation's first studio in Fushimi that killed 36 people (including directors Yasuhiro Takemoto (of this series) and Yoshiji Kigami), injured 34 others (including the suspect) in varying degrees, and destroyed most of the building's materials and computers. The suspect, 41-year-old Shinji Aoba, later admitted to committing the attack. He was sentenced to death in January 2024.
