Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry

What the hyperlink reads.
Voice actress Jenya reported on her official Twitter account that singer Origa (birth name Ol'ga Yakovleva) passed away on Saturday due to lung cancer. She was 44 years old.

Russian-born Origa first came to Japan in 1991 on a home-stay program, and made her major debut in Japan in 1995 under the EMI Music Japan label. She performed theme songs for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society, Fantastic Children, and Princess Arete. She also performed the hymn singing voice for the character Kanon in Gust and KOEI Tecmo Games' Ar nosurge PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita video game, which shipped in Japan last year.

Origa attended Vancouver's Anime Revolution convention last August as a guest.

beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep

This was surprising news and quite sad; AFO was trying to book her as a headliner. We were all so excited.

We are blessed to have been fortunate enough to experience her beautiful voice.

So true. GITS was one of the animes I always watched the full OP. The intro always set the mood for watching the anime.

I want to post the lyrics from one of her songs in tribute.

??? (Lirica) (Lilica on Armitunes)

English Translation
Do you see those white piano keys over there?
Give them a touch and know thyself
What you hear is a new world and flows like a stream
I call it music
And we both will be able to swim in that stream

I'm giving you music
Catch every tune of it
I'm giving you music
Love it like I do

I will reveal to you every secret
In this beautiful world
You will find a whole pallete of sad colours in it
But also an extraordinary ocean of joy
And you too can create those wonders

One of my all time favorite singers. Love Origa and she will be missed worldwide. My contribution my favorite Origa song Ame (rain)

Rain, from the Heavens to the Earth
In gilded dust,
Connecting wires
from heaven to Earth.

Rain runs down the window pane,
Bending in the wind,
Rain from foam and water.
Like trails of redemption.

Rain, I would wash myself with you from head to toe.
To become closer to heaven, in order to listen and create.

Rain, which is the voice of the Universe.
The path to Heaven.
Rain from foam and water.
Flowing down from the stars.

Rain, which was sent to me by fate.
Rain which is always, always with me.
In winter snow and in spring hail.
I am always glad to see it.
