Ryutaro Nakamura passes away

Recommended Posts

Ryutaro Nakamura, director of Serial Experiments Lain and Kino's Journey, has lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. He seems to have been ill for awhile now, which prevented his next series, Despara, from going into production. He was 58 years old.

 

RIP :(

Probably will. I think him, ABe and Konaka were only really willing to work together and it was their baby, together, from what I remember reading. Shame, man was a really damn good director.

Man ABe is probably my favorite person in the entire industry. If Despera dies I hope he does something else.

Regarding Despera, I think it was published in Japanese magazines a ways back as a series of short stories in like 12 or so chapters. Probably to at least put the idea down on paper somehow.
