zOMG I am sad. Who cares about Odex suing people? The voice behind ZARD, Izumi Sakai, passed away from an accident on Saturday. T_T

ZARD (Izumi Sakai)

Singer Izumi Sakai has died after sustaining head injuries in a fall from the edge of a hospital building in Tokyo, her management agency has announced. Sakai, a member of the popular group ZARD, was 40.

Sakai fell about three meters from the slope outside Keio University Hospital in Tokyo’s Shinjuku-ku, apparently after coming back from a walk. The slope was slippery due to rain.

I blame this on global warming. ;_; I really, really love her song “Dakishimeteite” which was used as an insert song in Tokimeki Memorial 3 for PS2. Just listen to it for yourself:
