[ANN] Ghost In The Shell singer Origa Passes Away

Not sure if this is the right section to put this in, but I'll post it because.

Article

Quote:
Voice actress Jenya reported on her official Twitter account that singer Origa (birth name Ol'ga Yakovleva) passed away on Saturday due to lung cancer. She was 44 years old.

Russian-born Origa first came to Japan in 1991 on a home-stay program, and made her major debut in Japan in 1995 under the EMI Music Japan label. She performed theme songs for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society, Fantastic Children, and Princess Arete. She also performed the hymn singing voice for the character Kanon in Gust and KOEI Tecmo Games' Ar nosurge PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita video game, which shipped in Japan last year.

Origa attended Vancouver's Anime Revolution convention last August as a guest.
Her GITS songs were some of the more memorable anime OP's I've had the pleasure of hearing, so this is some sad news.

Rest in Peace.

Very sad. I've only really heard her songs for Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex which were both wonderful, but man, 44 is just way too young.

F**K Cancer. Way too many wonderful talents taken too young.

Without a doubt my favorite piece by her is the ED for Fantastic Children titled "Mizu no Madoromi". It is an absolutely beautiful piece that fits that anime perfectly....

Rest in Peace.

Or, Vechnaya Pahmyaht.

Same here, I only know her from GITS, but her music was great. It got me slightly (very slightly and briefly) interested in Russian pop music as well. Shame to hear about this.
