I said I wasn’t going to post again about the status of anime and gamer personnel, but thought I would mention that Shinichiro Watanabe updated his facebook page posting about Yoko Kanno.
It’s northern Japan , Honshu, that’s suffering from the destruction from the earthquake and tsunami, specifically the Miyagi prefecture where Yoko Kanno is from.
Shinichiro Watanabe gives his residence as being Kyoto, much farther south. Not knowing if he was in the south of Japan when disaster struck or in the north (or worse, on a train in the north), was a cause for worry.
We can rest assured that he’s ok.
