Michiyo Yasuda (1939-2016)


Born in 1939, and passed away on October 5th, 2016, she was a full time Studio Ghibli animator. Ever since Makiko Futaki passed away on May 13th, 2016, she is now with her at the gates of heaven.

Michiyo Yasuda as a full time Studio Ghibli animator, she loved working for those two great Studio Ghibli directors. Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki. She did all the artwork on those masterpieces, as she was in charge of the color. So when Hayao Miyazaki for example, does his hand drawn artwork, she makes the color for that. And make sure they get the film right. With those colors.

In her artwork she did, they were in most of Studio Ghibli’s masterpieces. And those shorts in the Ghibli museum. With the help from Makiko Futaki.

After “Ponyo” in 2008, she helped Hayao Miyazaki on his farewell masterpiece. “The Wind Rises” in 2013. Later on, after Makiko passed away, so did she a few months later.

She was 77 years of age when she passed away. But her artwork is still with Studio Ghibli.

Finally as she will rest in peace, along with Makiko, we’ll never let Studio Ghibli down at all. Like Makiko, she must also be remembered in the Oscars for sure.
