Shortly after the news that celebrated anime director and animator Osamu Kobayashi passed away, hundreds of tributes and remembrances were posted across the internet to remember the man best known to Western anime fans for directing BECK and episodes of Naruto Shippuden. Now, international fans will be able to leave their condolences and remembrances for Kobayashi through a special Google Forms page, which will then sent directly to his family. The messages can be in any language and be about Kobayashi or his work, or a combination of both.



Additionally, Osamu Kobayashi's Twitter account posted a final memorial tweet confirming that his remains were cremated in accordance with his final wishes, and once the coronavirus pandemic subsides, his ashes are to be scattered off of the coast of Jogashima Island in Miura City, Kanagawa Prefecture, which was known to be one of his favorite places to travel.



Osamu Kobayashi will be missed dearly, not only by his family, friends, and close colleagues but by the thousands of fans across the world who were simultaneously inspired and profoundly affected by his work, myself included.
