This is a sad news to Ghost in the Shell fans, the Russian singer, Origa, who sang the 2 Ghost in the Shell TV series opening themes just passed away yesterday, January 17 from complications of lung cancer, she was just 44 years old.

She has worked with famous composer and long time friend, Yoko Kanno for the soundtracks for Ghost in the Shell and Turn-A Gundam.
