    One year ago on May 19, our Ninja had passed after losing his battle with cancer. Densetsu was known for not only his contributions to the NDS scene, but for his extremely amazing personality. He would go out of his way to help everyone and kept a calm level head no matter what pressure he was under. He never lost his cool and was always willing to work things out, earning him the utmost respect for the community. He was also an inspiring doctor going through medical school. Something he was extremely passionate about, coupled with his love for gaming.
    Densetsu's legacy still lives on in the hearts of those who had the pleasure to work with him.
    To quote @BORTZ
    RIP Densetsu 2016

    It still feels like a punch in the gut.

    Completely agreed. The death of Densetsu was a great loss to all of us who remember him, but that's nothing compared to what his family and close friends must have been feeling.
    Cancer is a bitch. My mom has had it twice and luckily survived both times, but there's no telling if it'll come back a third time and finally get the best of her. I hope that never happens, I don't know how I could live without her, she's like my rock in a scary world. But I digress.

    It's still deeply hard to put words to just how much his passing hurts. I still remember when I had an emotional breakdown and left the Temp. He sent me a PM when he noticed my M3 update threads stopped. He wanted to make sure I was doing ok and to find some way to keep in contact with me. Then when he found out I was struggling, he made sure to keep in touch with me to make sure I always had someone to talk to. He listened to me when I needed someone the most and became an amazing friend to me on the Temp. I will never forget just how much he cared about someone he only talked to through the internet.

    Great words. Very fitting. Can hardly believe it's been a year already. GBAtemp will always be indebted to him.

    I really started noticing Densetsu when I simultaneously got interested in the Pokemon ROM hack craziness of 2013 (was it?) and around the same time when I really got into wanting to learn Japanese, eventually stumbling on to his learning Japanese thread. He had an immense presence and brought order with a very cool demeanor and dignified way. RIP.

    I never had the pleasure of speaking with him at any depth, but losing him was a big hit to the community and irl. Rest in peace. :(

    There this one thing I want to say. I really hope someone from his family or his real life friends has been reading the forums or seeing the posts on his walls. I want them to know just how much he meant to us and that his memory still lives on here on the Temp.
    As for you my friend, I wish so much luck and send some love to your mom from the Temp and know that we only wish her well. I don't know her personally, but I know you and you are like kin to us. So she's kin too.

    He was very talented. Went to Japan to learn the culture and language, helped and motivated other people to learn japanese, went to medical school and gave us english Blood of Bahamut DS. Awesome dude. Rest in peace, brother :cry:

    Only one word can be used to describe him and that was Legend. Not just a legend on this site but a legend in life he was the nicest person you could ever have the privilege of getting to know. I got to know him when we both stayed in Japan. I was the proverbial fish out of water and did not know the language or the culture and he took me under his wing and was always there for me when I needed him. Even back then I only ever called him by the name of legend. After a while I headed home to Scotland due to a family crisis and sadly lost touch with him. I joined this site and not long after learnt of his passing. Earth's loss is heavens gain can't wait until the day we meet again.

    Rip LEGEND

    I don't really have an answer to that question because no one really ever really said to begin with. I do know that he was getting treated for his cancer and that he was doing better before his passing.
    If there is any comforting words I can give, is that he was a true ninja. He struck us in our hearts and vanished before he even knew what hit us.

    on the bright side, Heaven found one more God...

    Densetsu, you will always stay in our Cardiac Chambers (Heart) and our Cerebrum (Brain)
    'cause people with big hearts deserve big respect with big words....

    I've always thought of what the point of living truly is. I believe it's to try and make the best of this world, and to enjoy ever second of it. To have fun, accomplish goals, and enjoy having friends and family. I have experienced death, not me, but I have seen it; and I've seen what it can do to break and tear a family apart. May his name and work never be forgotten, and let us celebrate what he has done. So, my advice is to not live a life of fear, but one of joy. Try and find that joy, and fight to keep it.

    MODS! WE NEED A TRIPLE LIKE BUTTON

    I totally agree. I even wrote a speech for the same in our Social Studies class, How we subject ourselves to so many risks of dying (airplanes, trains, etc.) but to live as long as possible, we can't jsut deny ourselves of joy. Live is meant for joy, and to live longer without joy seems quite ridiculous.
