Yamato/Star Blazers Co-Creator Died
I don’t believe I missed this yesterday.
Yamato/Star Blazers Co-Creator died yesterday at the age of 75. He had fallen off The Yamato research vessel. Now that’s irony…
I remember watching Star Blazers wishing I could watch it again and again and again every time I saw it. Now, thanks to DVD, Blue Ray, etc, I can.
God Speed Yoshinobu Nishizaki.
Yoshinobu Nishizaki “co-creator” of Space Battleship Yamato aka Star Blazers in the states died at the age of 75 when he fell off of a research vessel named, of all things, the Yamato on Sunday. Submitter’s Notes: Nishizaki was the quintessential Hollywood Director of the Japanese Animation world. He’s been arrested twice for drug possession and for illegal weapons possession.
