The ANNCast gave me countless hours of entertainment and Zac's approach of being forthright and honest was always refreshing and influential to how I like to conduct things as well.

Rest in Peace and condolences to all those touched by this incredible loss.

One of my fondest memories was trading and sharing a beer with Zac at Otakon a few years ago. I was looking forward to the next opportunity if it ever came, and now it won't. This is indeed a tremendous shock; my thoughts are with his family and friends. Thank you for all of the work and joy you put into this website, Zac; you will be missed.

I had to knock some dust off the old log in for this one.

RIP Zac. We had our disagreements but he was always fair and civil. He wrote some amazing pieces here over the years. He made the forums fun and I enjoyed speaking with him. No one quite mastered the art of sarcasm like he did.
I'm so sorry to hear about this.
To his family and friends I hope you can find peace. ANN won't be the same without you.


Rest well Zac. Thanks for the memories.

This is so horrible.
Zac, you brought a lot of pleasure to a lot of people.
You were loved and respected by so many of us who never even met you.

RIP, sir. We only met in person a few times but I feel like I've known you forever. Much love to those you've left behind.

I was sure this was what had happened based on the vague tweets circulating yesterday, but I desperately hoped it wasn't. He may not have created the site, but he sure as hell defined it.

RIP Zac.

What a bitter day.
In face of all the ill that has happened in the world over recent years, it has been a pleasure to know Zac and the community he brought together.

Jesus, this is so unexpected.
RIP Zac. He was a prominent figure in the anime community, and his contributions won't be forgotten. Gonna be sad to listen to the ANNCast archives now...

What a stunning loss to the fan community. It’s hard to imagine ANN without his voice. We had mutual friends. I wish I had gotten to know him better. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
