he was a literal legend... his works will remain one of a kind

Fuck. I remember seeing that image on DeviantArt shortly after he passed. It's a real testament to his artistry and his legacy that people are still dropping by to pay their respects. Can't believe it's been a decade almost. Really disappointed Madhouse gave up on The Dreaming Machine.

Thank you sir for Millennium Actress, the most beautiful piece of Art i ever watched.

Like my friend said below, a legend never dies, Satoshi-sama just went to see the stars for himself.
