Now one of my crazy theories about 2012 (I don't believe in it, but I love making up crazy theories) is that everyone in the anime industry will die by 2012.

RIP.

Is anybody else reminded of the strange series of celebrity deaths we had in the western world around this time last year? Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze, Billy Mays etc.

It's such a shame that not many people knew of his work, he will be greatly missed. I watched so many of his stop motion series, my favorite being "To Shoot Without Shooting".

RIP

This. And here I was hoping 2010 wouldn't have so much death in it :(
Can't believe there's been another death in the industry in about 2-3 days. RIP ;_;

RIP, although he lived long enough to live a good chunk of his life
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

that's as likely as someone with a grudge against people connected to anime killing them off with a deathnote


Exactly my thoughts '-'

Well, that's the third person to die. Looks like the death spree is over.

RIP for the ones who died though.

He was 85 after all, at 80's 90's you're knocking on death's door as it is. This really isn't as surprising as the others given his age, so I would be hesitant to include his death as part of the "curse".

Back to topic, I haven't seen his works, but...

RIP.

(Offtopic: Yes, this is also happening in the J-Pop/J-Rock industry too. Not deaths, but disbandings.)
