I’m actually kinda lost for words that he’s gone :(
I discovered him years ago with his Dead Fantasy videos on Youtube – me and my friends watched them loads of times being amazed at how awesome they were and eager for the next episode – been following him for quite while (5yrs i think) have enjoyed all his work and projects – such a talented man – a huge loss :(
Actually….it could’ve been longer than 5yrs – if he released the first in 2007 – i didn’t start my A-Levels till 2008 – and it was during that time when i first discovered him – time really flies! :(
I really hope he recovers without trouble, damn. :/ His Dead Fantasy series is something I constantly re-watch, and I’ve been following RWBY for some time now, too. Hope he gets better.
Really hope he makes a full recovery!
Just Hoping he gets better.
I’m not good at responding to things like this. But this is sad.
