A lot of unfortunate deaths this month. As someone familiar with Orai's work, it just unfortunate. I send my condolences to his familym friends, and fans.

I didn't know so many illustrations I've known and loved for years were done by the same person. A truly great artist.

Most definitely a great artist. I really liked his cover art for Doomed Megalopolis, which is why I ended up watching it. His art had a way of drawing people towards what was being advertised. RIP.

Very sad death and it happened not even a day after the last one. Sad
Mr. Ōrai-san will be missed dearly. His works of art are truly a magnum opus.

A tragic loss and a true talent, and an unsung hero of the industry. He will be missed.
