... my first thought is that he was only 57! That's pretty young. :( I'm always sad to hear when people who have contributed to the Sailor Moon legacy have passed away.

I say I share such sentiments; what a shame. *sigh* I wish he rests in peace, and also wish that those still around get to have a very long and prosperous life ahead of them.

A lot of Sailor Moon greats are dying ;_; the man who composed some of the music Arisawa Takanori died a few years ago, the voice of Kunzite died a few ago as well

We will miss them all ;_;

Have checked at WikiMoon - actually he hasn't got an article there yet, ^_^' & I dunno enough about him to create one myself.

Yeah, I was going to edit that when I first found out he'd died and...well, I guess I need to make an article first. ^_^'

I had no idea he worked on Sailor Moon. I knew him as a key animator in the last episode of Cutie Honey (back in 74!).

It's sad to see such a talented man pass on like that. And only 57! ;__;

I read that he was the animator for supers season...my favorite season!! RIP :(
:sad: Yeah. SuperS was the season where the animation started to become really, really good.
Among others, I like how they "upgraded" the characters' eyes in that season. Overall, the season is a nice eye candy (no pun intended).

:lol: The eyes were better. I think my favorite feature is how elongated their bodies look compared to previous seasons. Plus the facial features were kicked up a notch. Not to say they were bad in the past, but once again, better detail on the face (especially the eyes as mentioned) were crystal clear.

To really notice these differences, you must watch the R2 DVDs. :ohmy:
