Sad news for anime fans around the globe, Shingo Araki has died, was illustrator, producer, animator and movie producer. He worked on many anime shows including Devilman, UFO Robo Grendizer, Babel II, Lupin and Yu-Gi-Oh! just to name a few.
But what made him known to a number of fans including me, was his work on the highly popular Saint Seiya, Shingo Araki was the character designer for the anime version of the manga created by Masami Kurumada.
He modified the design of the Bronze Saint armors, giving the show a more stilized and dynamic look that made it so popular among the fans all over the world.
Rest in Peace, Shingo Araki (1939-2011)
