The arsonist's arrest warrant has been updated to include 35 counts of murder, 35 counts of attempted murder, arson of an inhabited structure, as well as a number of other criminal offenses.

However, people are debating whether the arsonist will be spared the death penalty due to mental illness.

This year's Kyoto Animation novel-writing contest is being suspended indefinitely.

Likewise, this year's Enjoy! The World Of KyoAni And Do event is looking like it will likely be canceled as well.

It turns out that lots of animation materials were housed in a location separate from Studio 1 and are being displayed in an exhibit. The exhibition was planned prior to the arson attack but the materials were sent afterward.
