Animator Kanada Yoshinori passed away of myocardial infarction on July 21st. He was 57 years old.

Source: Anido

Kanada invented numbers of unique art styles in the early age of Japanese modern anime. They were named with the prefix "Kanada", such as "Kanada Perspective", "Kanada Posing", "Kanada Motion" etc. His animations strongly influenced young animators and formed a group of artists called "Kanada Followers".

He worked on Miyazaki Hayao's movies and was given a special title "Genga Gashira (chief animator)" in Castle in the Sky.

List of Kanada's major works:
Gegege no Kitarou (1968)
Dokonjo Gaeru (1972)
Majokko Megu-chan (1974)
Uchuu Senkan Yamato TV series and movies
Gaiking (1976 & 2006)
Muteki Choujin Zanbot 3 (1977)
Galaxy Express 999 (Movie) (1979)
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
Castle in the Sky
My Neighbor Totoro
Kiki's Delivery Service
Porco Rosso
X
Tottemo! Luckyman
Princess Mononoke
Blue Submarine No. 6

Kanada followers:
Imaishi Hiroyuki (the director of "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann")
Mouri Kazuaki (the general animation director of "Pokemon" movies)
Yamashita Masahito (the Mecha animation director of "Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z-Hen")
Kouzuma Shinsaku (Art storyboard of PS2 "Final Fantasy X")
Mori Hisashi (the Mecha animation director of "Big O")
Koike Takeshi (the director of "The Animatrix: World Record")
Watabe Keisuke (the character designer of "Seikai no Senki" series)
Ookubo Masao (the episode director of "Onegai My Melody" series)
Sushio (the Mecha animation director of "Top wo Nerae! 2")

Year? Try month, they all happened in the last month didn't they?

Kira strikes again, but this time he killed someone good, and he will pay...

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.
