    Densetsu, he was a member who contributed a lot to the NDS scene, mostly to the M3 scene and ROM translation scene. He also became a member of the staff, quickly raising to Moderator and then Global Moderator. He was also an inspiring doctor who was going to medical school. There's obviously a lot more to him to make him an extremely notable member of the Temp, but it's hard to summarize his full contributions in just one post.

    I remember Densetsu very fondly. We didn't speak often, but when we did interact, he had an impeccable sense of humour. He was great at moderating the forums and keeping the peace, and his Japanese thread was very useful and interesting for our users. I still remember his Bukkake Soup thread, it was class entertainment. He'll be remembered, for sure.

    I really wish I could have been around when he was most active.. I never really got to know Densetsu
    Wherever he is, I hope he's happy.

    He will be missed, tho we didn't really know him, I'm sure many of us considered him a friend, may he rest in peace.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. Last year I gave a eulogy at his funeral and had mentioned the severe loss our community had with his passing. His family was extremely touched and I sent his mother all of your messages. Franz was my best friend and brought me into this community years ago when we were both in Japan.

    His family is endeared by your shared grief and your support. <3

    I still go back to the PM's we sent to each other sometimes. I really do miss him. Quite a lot.
    I keep on fighting to learn Japanese, but now I'm also doing it for him.

    It puts my mind at ease knowing his family knows just how much we cared about him. I just want his family to know that they are kin to us and we are forever grateful to have had the honor to experience a true Legend. His family and friends are always welcome here on the Temp. We will always be here if they need us.

    RIP Densetsu, I still think of him often. He went out of his way to headhunt me (through GameFAQs no less!!) to help with the Blood of Bahamut project. One of the few people who validated my JP skills and made me feel really confident about it. Great guy to work with as well.

    He was an admin, worked on DS ROM translations, spoke fluent Japanese, and was one of the nicest people I knew :(

    Still completely hurt by his passing; I remember before I even know this happened; I'd always drop in his profile to see if he's active or not; cause I really missed him. He was a very funny person; I remember rolling on the floor after reading his posts when he closed threads. Densetsu, RIP man we will always miss you. Amazing guy. :(

    Can't believe one year has passed already, the wound still feels so fresh in my heart.

    RIP, Den. We miss you.

    I'm way way to absent from this site, only having found out this happened yesterday night...
    He was probably the most recognizable person in the M3 topics, always calm and well spoken, it always put a smile on my face when I saw his avatar pass around when I was reading up on something.

    When death came for him, Densetsu was learning to heal bodies
    but he was born with the knowledge of how to heal hearts.
    That might have been his greatest skill, and the one least known by the world.
    I'm so honored to have seen that facet of his personality.
    Franz was a good man, by any measure, and I miss his presence dearly.

    I sure could use his council today.

    Jesus has it been a year already? Unbelievable.

    I will just echo what I said when Den passed a year back. He was a great human being who not only helped this community but dedicated his life to healing and helping others. My stomach still gets sick and twisted at the thought of him passing so young in this way.

    Rest is peace, my heart still hurts for your family.

    If Densetsu was still around, he would most likely even help those who don't know him.
    I cannot muster such feelings for someone I didn't know, but seeing all of you respect a person and praise him even after he was gone, made me respect him as well.

    Rest in Peace, Densetsu, I hope you receive the greatest rewards for your efforts and good-will.
