Noboru Ishiguro has achieved a lot in this world and we will surely miss him on Earth. Being the director of such projects as the first colour Astro Boy, Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Space battleship Yamato, he hat set the beginning and basis for a lot of others to follow and improve.
The tragic news was announced by Studio Nue’s co-founder Haruka Takachiho. The director has passed away on Tuesday, March 20, at 5:45 p.m. in a Kawasaki City hospital.
Let us all wish to his wife Yumi to be strong and have faith in life and art and pray to all gods that one day we will have another such genius and innovator born on this planet.
