RIP Torishimo. Dokoro-chan was one of the first animes I had ever watched. May his soul rest in peace.

Dokuro-chan is rated high on my list, and the other works look good too, RIP.

Dokuro-chan was one of the first anime I ever watched, nearly a decade ago. Rest in piece Torishimo-san, you'll be in our thoughts.

Aw man that sucks! Dokuro-chan was one of the first anime I've ever seen. I loved the character designs.

Well, I don't know him, but his memory can live on in the works he left us. RIP.

Wow I'd just finished Dokuro chan a few days ago. Took a dozen screenshots of the wacky reaction faces during comedic scenes, must have had a lot of fun working on the series.

RIP. Another loss in the industry.

Oh man, I remember watching fragments of Dokuro-chan when I was like 12. It was silly but also kinda mind blowing for me back then. Sad to see he haven't created anything as popular ever since it ended :< May he rest in peace, I'll definitely come back to Dokuro-chan one day.

I never watched any of his works, but rest in peace, sir.
