Rest in peace, Raide

Post by Oddball » Thu Jul 23, 2020 6:23 pm

You may have already heard this else where, but Raide has passed away.

I'm probably not the person that should be making this topic here. I didn't know Raide, I don't think I ever interacted directly with him, but somehow knowing he's no longer with us hurts.

He created something magnificent and in his works, he'll always live on.

I don't think it matters who made the thread, just that we are all here to mourn someone who was involved in something that meant a lot to all of us... I will say it's one hell of a topic for me to return to.

Rest in Peace Raide, I am really thankful I got to experience some of your work...
I was drawn to this for a reason, the name I picked was for a reason deeper than I can actually think of... Yamaku is not just a fantasy to me.

I'm in the same boat here. I never knew him in any capacity, but I felt like I should say something. When I hear of a celebrity dying, it doesn't really affect me much- if I constantly mourn the deaths of people I don't know, there won't be much time left for me to be happy.

But having been so deeply influenced by KS, this feels a bit more personal. I'm sure his involvement in it was only a small part in a much larger and more meaningful life he lived, but I'm thankful for it all the same.
I go by Snowman in most places now (SnowmanSSB if I have to sometimes). If you run into me somewhere in the internet feel free to say hi!

We lost a great artist,

I wish the best for his family and may his legacy live on.

Indeed, especially when they created or had a hand in creating something you enjoyed.
Requiescat in pace, Raide-sama.
