This just in case you missed it! "Kazuhiko Katoh, the co-founder of two musical bands and the composer of the main theme songs for The Super Dimension Fortress MACROSS: Do You Remember Love? and Windaria, was found hanged in his hotel room in Nagano Prefecture on Saturday, October 17, 2009. He was 62.

To many anime fans he is best know for his "... composed music for several projects, including Mari Iijima's "Do You Remember Love?" ("Ai , Oboeteimasu ka?") theme song for The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love?" Undeniably "Ai Oboeteimasu ka" remains enshrined in the hearts and minds of countless people. We encourage those of you unfamiliar with the song and Macross in general to watch Macross tv series, Macross Do You Remember Love, and Macross Flashback 2012.

I am so very sorry to hear about this. Anytime someone passes under these circumstances it is truly traggic. I wish his family well.
