In memorium: Noboru Ishiguro

 

24 August 1938 – 20 March 2012

What kind of place does Yamato occupy in you?

It was a pivotal point in my career. Yamato drastically changed my thoughts on what could be done with animation. Before Yamato, it had been said that SF titles would not catch on, and I believed it. But Yamato overcame such thinking in a positive way and changed my mind. It made me confident, and for this reason, Yamato is a very memorable work. 

On the 20th of March 2012 the last of the 3 three men [ Osamu Tezuka, Noboru Ishiguro and Yoshinobu Nishizaki] who introduced me into anime passed away.

Today the world of anime seemed that little more quieter for his loss.
