Shunsuke Kikuchi, the legendary composer of Dragon Ball, Doraemon, and Kamen Rider has died

The anime world loses one of its iconic composers. Shunsuke Kikuchi, responsible for the mythical themes of Dragon Ball, Doraemon or Kamen Rider, has died at the age of 89.

It is very possible that not all of you who read this article know Shunsuke Kikuchi (Kikuchi Shunsuke) by name, but we already anticipate that, if you are anime fans, you have listened to his work, and surely hummed more than one of his compositions. However, today we wake up to the sad news of his death at 89 years of age, after suffering from pneumonia that has ended the life of the composer of instrumental pieces in anime like Dragon Ball Z or Kamen Rider .

Kikuchi had been retired since 2017 when he began to be treated for an illness that required that his level of activity was not usual for a composer of anime music as in demand as him. Only four years later we must mourn his death.

Among some of his memorable works is the original intro of Doraemon , the 1979 anime that was on a mission for a whopping 27 years, always accompanied by the music of Shunsuke Kikuchi or reminiscences of it.

Throughout his career, Shunsuke Kikuchi has put music to some of the most iconic scenes in anime. It would be impossible to conceive of some of the most spectacular battles in Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z without their instrumental themes.

His work also reached Hollywood. Quentin Tarantino featured Kikuchi’s music composed for Champions of Death in his Kill Bill movie. It is certainly a sad loss to the community of anime lovers.

The tall vampire lady: who played Lady Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village

The tall vampire lady: who played Lady Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village

A few months before the release of Resident Evil Village, fans of the series took notice of Alcina Dimitrescu, one of the villains in the game. She was remembered by the players due to her bright appearance and charismatic image: she had her own fans, who dedicated many fan arts, fanfiction, and memes to her.

The character’s popularity reached the point that Capcom made her the centerpiece of the Resident Evil Village ad campaign. That being said, the company did not publicly announce who played Lady Dimitrescu in the game. We decided to find out which actress performed this image.

The role of Lady Dimitrescu was played by Maggie Robertson: the actress told about this on her Twitter. At the same time, she registered an account only in February of this year, and in her profile, there are now only three tweets – and all are dedicated to the Resident Evil Village.

Robertson stated that she not only voiced Dimitrescu, but also recorded the movements for motion-capture in the image.

“Finally, we met …”. I am PLEASED to announce that I have voiced and played our beloved Lady Dimitrescu. It is such an honor to be a part of this game, and to embody the image of this huge, um, character.”

Maggie recently embarked on an acting career: according to IMDb, she only played her first film role in 2017, in Nothing to Do. In addition, the actress personally wrote her biography on this site. At the same time, her height is 183 centimeters – perhaps thanks to this she got the role of Dimitrescu.

Maggie Robertson began her career in regional theater in Washington DC. Her favorite roles and productions include Madame de la Grand Bush in Beauty and the Beast, Another Place by Sharr White and Dani’s Girl by Michael Koeman and Christopher Diamond.

She received her MA in Classical Acting from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. Maggie joined the ranks of other notable alumni such as Benedict Cumberbatch, David Oyelovo, Brian Cox, Ruth Wilson, Chiwetel Ejiofor and John Lithgow. After graduation, Maggie moved to Los Angeles and has since starred in various independent films.

Also Maggie is a talented singer and musician. She studied classical music before moving on to jazz, pop music and musical theater. Maggie plays guitar and can perform beatboxing.

Maggie has her own website with links to social networks and examples of her work, including voice recording. Among them is audio with imitation of the voice acting of Galadriel from “The Lord of the Rings”. At the same time, the actress indicated on the website that she had “the voice of a sophisticated and capable mother who knows her business … and her wine.”

The actress did not reveal exactly how she got the role of Lady Dimitrescu. One can only assume that the developers at Capcom were impressed by her voice, acting talent, and impressive growth.

Now on the net, you can find a video about the creation of the image of Lady Dimitrescu, in which you can see a recording of the movement of Maggie Robertson. The actress simultaneously voiced her character and played a role in a motion-capture studio.

It is not known for certain which actress gave Lady Dimitresku’s appearance: according to unverified information, the character’s face was recorded from the Polish model Helena Mankowska. But Capcom has not officially confirmed her participation in the game – so this is just speculation.

And Robertson herself, thanks to the role of Dimitrescu, gained certain popularity – almost four thousand people have already subscribed to her Twitter. Perhaps this will positively affect her career, and we will see Robertson in other games and films.

Get the Beneviento Treasure Chalice of Berengar in Resident Evil 8 Village

Guide to find Beneviento’s treasure in Resident evil 8 Village, open the tomb and get the valuable Berengarian chalice.

One of the novelties that Resident Evil 8 Village introduces is the treasures, which belong to the different children of Mother Miranda, the final enemies of the game. Each of them has unique objects, which we can sell in the Duke’s shop, and which will give us Lei to buy new weapons or modify the ones we already have.

Where is the treasure of Beneviento found? This treasure is found in a tomb, in the garden, which we can access at the end of this section of the game. However, we cannot open this headstone directly. For this, we need half a stone plate.

To find this half of the plate, we have to go back to the village cemetery. The engraved plaque is found inside a mausoleum (it can be seen from the beginning of the game but the door opens automatically later on). Once we have obtained the plaque, we return to the garden.

The problem that we are going to find is that now there is a very tough enemy guarding the tombstone. It is a giant armed with an ax, which will cost us to eliminate. However, if we go backward little by little down the garden path, armed with the sniper rifle and the cartridge shotgun, it is not complicated.

Once we have rid ourselves of this giant (and the servants that accompany it), we can approach the tomb and use half of the engraved plaque, to complete the name. The tomb opens and we have access to the treasure of Beneviento: the chalice of Berengario.
