Animation historian Jerry Beck reported on his blog on Sunday that American producer Carl Macek passed away due to a heart attack on Saturday. Macek and Beck had co-founded Streamline Pictures in 1988.

Macek is best known for producing Robotech, the redubbed and edited adaptation of three different anime series -- Macross, Southern Cross, and Mospeada. He also worked on the dubbing of many anime projects from Captain Harlock and the Queen of a Thousand Years (redubbed and edited adaptation of Captain Harlock and Queen Millennia) to more recently, Bleach and Naruto.

He laid many of the stepping stones for making anime big in America. I cannot help but wonder how my tastes in media would have evolved differently had he not done the work he did.
