Depression is an often unseen illness that can be life threatening and should not be romanticized or trivialized. That's all there is to it.

I've been keeping tabs on Foray's wikipedia article over the years, especially since Alan Young died. It's kind of amazing that she didn't get the kind of recognition she really deserved, considering she is one of the heavyweights of voice acting history. Like, a female Paul Frees. Or maybe I should say, Frees is a male June Foray.

I guess you could say Foray was too old and largely out of animation by the time she died, but was too young to gain a lot of the early recognition she probably should have had. Everyone knew Paul Frees in up until the 1990's, but as tapes of his voice are removed from Disneyland due to degradation, millennials nor their kids really know who he is.

As the article said, it's not surprising given her age. I've been expecting it for years now. But it pisses me off somewhat that millennials aren't giving the voice acting pioneers proper credit.

Like I think Frank Welker is really underrated in spite of being the most prolific VA since Blanc, just because he keeps such a low profile and doesn't promote himself with anything beyond performance.

Unlike say, JYB or Crispin Freeman.

There are conflicting reports on whether or not Tom Petty has died, but he's at the very least brain dead and on life support.

A massive loss for classic rock fans everywhere.

I just learned that Origa died two years ago.

Origa was a Russian singer who mostly worked in Japan. She became internationally famous, at least amongst anime fans, for her musical contributions to the television series Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, for which she performed both the OP "Inner Universe" and the OP "Rise".

Wikipedia reports, "On January 17, 2015, Origa died at the age of 44, due to heart failure. Anime voice actress Jenya tweeted it was due to lung cancer." Lung cancer or not, that is such a shame ... Only 44 years old, and she died from heart failure. As recently as 2014, she was performing in concert.

Rest in peace, Origa.

Wow?! I wouldn't have imagined that. In her more recent pictures, you see she's also a lot more heavyset than how I remember her from the early aughts. But she was in her early 20's then.

Interestingly, she has a son named Ilya.

Hey guys, Hiromi Tsuru died

She was most famous for her role as Bulma in the Dragon Ball series, and was found dead in her car today, it is unsure how exactly she died at this time.
