Shichiro Kobayashi, Art Director for classic shows like Berserk 1999 and Utena has passed
Things are just going to get worse and worse, aren't they?
Here's a fantastic interview with him. Has english subs.
JUST FINISH THE MANGA BEFORE DYING, DAMMIT.
You forgot that he was the art director in Milky Holmes
aren't most people left in the industry old as hell? what's going to happen? it's not as if a lot of japanese youth are eager to work in the anime industry these days.
Anime will go through a bigger rut in staff than it already is
89 is a good run.
F, I like both Berserk's 1997 adaptation and Utena
In the afterlife, Miura will finish Berserk while Shichiro will make the full anime adaptation.
A shame. He had a good run though, so it's not THAT sad.
Some of the best still image slideshows. RIP
All the real talent is old.
Not literally all but close enough.
As they die off we'll get closer and closer to full cgi taking over. These skills are being lost to time.
>closer and closer to full cgi taking over. These skills are being lost to time.
At least we shall all die one day so we won't have to endure this for long.

He created my wife Arsene?! Based.
Japan's cultural rot will keep getting worse, and the world media landscape will become a bland desert. China sure ain't replacing anything.
Doesn't matter, aren't most animators outsourced anyway?
Aim for the Ace's movie
Castle of Cagliostro
Ashita no Joe 2
Guy was a fuckin legend.

F, rest in peace
Chinks have some soul compared to webtoon gooks so I still have some hope
