I wrote a post about his interesting life story on his 88th birthday (Click here to read it).

        Well I only know about it because of my years of watching tons of anime and trying to find new interesting ones. I doubt it is known very well here

        I like it because I’ve always been interested in monsters. Anime, not so much.
