Something to do with 2010? R.I.P


Yes, someone put a curse on the anime industry (disgruntled Japanese Otaku or someone angry with the anime industry), whoever did this massive injustice really needs to have a full lobotomy and thrown in solitary for life, capital punishment is too soft for such a crime.

Another great talent lost far too early. Rest in peace.
