I can’t believe it was kept in the wraps for 2 weeks... but I’m a bit flabbergasted and still processing that Kentaro Miura has passed away.
It’s pretty easy to understate how big his influence is in art. Without him, we wouldn’t get Dark Souls and Bloodborne, and the animators and artists of Castlevania explicitly said he was in an influence in their work.
Miura, in my opinion, had one of the greatest eyes for detail and some STRONG, STRONG, STRONG visual imagery almost untouched by... well a lot of people really.
He pushed the visual imagery of fantasy and horror in new and exciting ways, and it’s a test to his timeless writing that we’re still invested in Berserk for decades.
Damn...just...damn, man. RIP to Polly Lou Livingston, who provided the voice of everyone's favorite apple pie making elephant as Tree Trunks, according to one of the crew who worked on Adventure Time, Adam Muto. She'll be missed.
Una Stubbs, beloved English actress who worked in theatre and on the big and small screen, has died. She was 84. Not only a great actress “but also a wickedly funny, elegant, stylish, graceful, gracious and kind and constant friend. She was also a highly respected and exhibited artist.” Most deepest condolences to her family and friends. Rest In Peace.
