That's sad. His work was among the very first exposures to anime for me.
I hope his spirit will live on in future anime creators.

Yeah, Star Blazers was my first ever anime though I didn't know it as that then. It was that "brilliant Japanese cartoon". I never heard the Japanese open. Did he also compose the open score for the English dub as well then? At 75 he lived a bit longer than some of recent reports. May his spirit find peace.

Aww, I hate it when people die. I've never seen these anime, but I have heard of them. I hope he rests in peace.

That's the same as me. I'm sorry about this to those who are a fan of his and are members of his family. It's always sad when someone dies. Crying or Very sad

His music for Yamato was brilliant. At least his work will continue to be appreciated by oldschool anime fans. :}

I purchased the Yamato movie boxset at Otakon last year. I think the music in Final Yamato was especially great and moving. He was definitely talented.

The scores for Final Yamato, though, were partially supported by HANEDA _Macross_ Kentaro.

Yes, I believe Star Blazers did use his score.
Truly one of the greats.
Besides the Yamato theme song, I really liked the White Comet and Andromeda themes from the second season.
