This saddens me immensely, her videos were one of the things that got me back into editing. She was an amazing editor and she'll greatly missed.

I wouldn't have guessed that she was so young, as her videos were so mature and complex. My heart goes out to her friends and family.

It's my second time I talk with a person that dies next day. The first one was ZetZu and now Umika :c

back in the days when zetzu gone and then nme... i had a sorry thought that one day this cup shall not pass away russian community, but i had no idea how soon this might happen and whom we shall say our farewells to.

As the community matures news like this will become more frequent. What's depressing is how young many of our ranks are when they do go. Umika, like so many other before her, will be missed.

It is dreadful news. It feels especially wrong since she's the main reason beind my willingness, patience and ambition in editing. She's always been someone who was on a level I was dreaming to reach one day. She's left behind beautiful and magical videos and will forever be a precursor in AMV editing, forever unbeaten. I hope her life now is as beautiful as all the things she left for us to enjoy and admire.

this hit pretty hard. i didn't know her personally but i feel as though i do through videos and artwork. what a ridiculously brilliant artist. there was so much to look forward to in her work, a grace and talent that has never touched the amv community before. always single-handedly raising the bar for the community and herself. i'm sad that i won't be able to continue to wait in suspense and anticipation for your works any longer, but i know they would have been phenomenal as always

will continue to watch your videos regularly and be inspired by your visions. rest in peace Umika; you will be dearly missed

Ever since I saw Traumerei all those years ago, I dreamed to express myself so beautifully as you did. The "making of" your videos show just how much care went into your work.

Rest in peace Umika, you were one of the best, and you shall be remembered.

I just watched Our Tapes for the first time (don't ask) and I couldn't really make heads or tails of it BUT I haven't seen K-On! and I think that's probably key to getting anything at all out of the experience, isn't it? Like, it's quite possible that this whole storyline was built from scratch but maybe you have to come into it with a certain set of expectations for something like that to really effect you, I don't know. Man, trying to write semi-thoughtful posts on a mobile device is a pain in the ads.

One thing I know for sure is that it's really not a good idea to watch dn@'s F.Y.C. before Our Tapes because it really does completely kill the dramatic impact that's probably supposed to be there. But I had about 3 years to experience it before it was parodied and it's not like I didn't know that Our Tapes was a hit and an acclaimed video. It was so popular and respected that I felt like I'd better "prepare" myself for it in advance of watching it, which I never did until now.

It's encouraging to see so many people coming together to acknowledge one of our own like this, pity that I've seen it happen so many times by now.
