In Memoriam, Okazu Superhero Bruce P

November 7th, 2017

Hi folks. I have no idea what to say here. This is the second time I’ve lost someone important to me, someone who I met because of Yuri. Okazu Superhero, Guest Reviewer and my very dear friend Bruce Pregger has passed away.

If you’re a long time reader, you’ve read many of his hilarious reviews and his event reports (I’m putting them all, and this post, into a new category, so they can be found simply) here on Okazu. He’s traveled with me to several continents and I’m going to miss him so much, I can’t even express myself.

Ah, crap. I hate this. 

I had a guest review of his all scheduled to run on Wednesday, it will still run, but dammit, Bruce, you were supposed to go with us to Tokyo in 2 weeks. Dammit.

Goodbye Bruce, you will be missed.

  1. Even as a newer reader, I was aware of his name, and have had the pleasure of reading his reviews, with my favourite being his review of Kinoko Ningen no Kekkon:

    Sincere, heartfelt sympathies :( I’m so sorry this happened, and wish there was anything I could do.

    His reviews were indeed fun to read, so that’s really too bad, sorry it happened.

    Oh no, I am so sorry Erica! That is such a loss. I only met Bruce the one time in Yokohama, but I really enjoyed spending time with him and your whole group – it was clear how close you were. I will think of him every time I look at my copy of the Marimite print that he sponsored and sent me on a quest to acquire. His voice and presence on Okazu will be sadly missed.

    This is heartbreaking. I remember Bruce from all the way back on the Yuricon Mailing List. He will be deeply missed. Thank you for letting us know of his passing.

    Truly sorry to hear about the passing of your friend. I’m glad he was able to be part of your platforms to write and discuss about the entertainment he loved for all of us.
