Shooraijin, thank you for posting this. I don't really actively follow anime/manga news, so it would have taken me a lot longer to find out if you hadn't.

While I have had some issues with things in the works of Matsumoto Leiji that I've read, despite that I still greatly enjoyed the worlds and stories he created, and if you ever see me on another website or platform with the username KaoriExpress999 or KaoriExpress, it's a specific tribute to Galaxy Express 999.

He had the imagination to create iconic series like Harlock that really stick with you, and will certainly be missed.
Let others believe in the God who brings men to trial and judges them. I shall cling to the God who resurrects the dead.

He certainly did. Although I agree some of his works are more problematic, he was clearly very creative.
