RIP Takeshi Shudo

Wow, that’s pretty much a huge chunk of my childhood. I loved, like a lot of my peers, the original Pokemon series and remember watching it every day. The series has a sense of fun and adventure, and opened up many possibilities which caught the eye. Especially considering what else was on, I don’t think it was much surprise Pokemon became as popular as it did.

I can’t lie. Even when I’m now 18 years old, I still pop in an old VHS or a DVD with some of the older episodes when I’m having a really crappy day, and still enjoy those old episodes. To me, they’re timeless. One of the episodes he did, Gastly and Ghost Maiden, was one of my favorites, and one of the first Pokemon episodes I watched.

Rest in Peace Mr. Shudo. He may be gone, yet the anime still continues.


An even better dedication post

  1. I give my condolences to his family who are moaning for the lost…

    Also, It’s been a long time I watched Pokemon… I really need to pop in the disc and take a look at it again.
