I don't normally do these things, but I don't want to risk this guy getting forgotten. I can't even call myself a fan of his, but what I've seen of his, I liked. More than anything I liked what he was doing. Exploring animation as a force of power through understatement...or restraint. Hard to describe. There was a pragmatism to the films of his I saw that made them so unique.
I really did seem like one of a kind.

Man, it's such a shocking death. In all honesty, I didn't see all his movies as flawless but loved his talent. He was definitely in the upper echelon of anime directors. I just now hope his final movie "Dream Machine" can be faithfully completed.
