0

Another legend of anime passed on recently, this time Osamu Dezaki, on April 17th due to lung cancer. Dezaki, once of Mushi Productions (founded by Osamu Tezuka), he also helped found studios MADHOUSE and Annapuru.

You may know Dezaki from his first major debut as the director of Ashita no Joe, the classic boxing series, where he also practically trademarked the so called "Postcard Memory" freeze-frame, wherein a frame is frozen, then converted into pastel or sketchbook style to underscore its importance. You've seen it at least once in every anime ever. That was him.

He's also known for his work on Golgo 13, Space Adventure Cobra, Rose of Versailles, Black Jack, the Air and Clannad films, The Snow Queen, and more.

He will be missed.
