RIP Ekureiru ~Kethsar
News courtesy of one of his real life friends, who provided the information below.
"The whole Eku situation is this-- He was going through some relationship trouble and fighting a losing battle against his insecurities and gender dysphoria, since the day I met him like 3-4 years ago, he'd been constantly trying to kill himself while in a drunken haze. But he always failed spectacularly, honestly at some point I started thinking it was just for attention. But in Summer/Fall of last year, he started calling me a lot to vent about the woman that he was living with and the shit that she did to exacerbate his insecurities. At some point he stopped calling me. Then a mutual friend called me about an hour and a half ago, and told me that they found his body in his room with the door open at about 17:10 on Friday"
Goodbye senpai, you will be missed.

Thanks for always telling me I was a manly little girl. Your streams were always my favourite. I'd stay up until 4am euro to catch the start of them and still be able to catch the end of them in the morning.

Nothing I can say will do you justice.
I'm infinitely grateful to you; without your streams I'd likely have died years ago. You were kind, and warm, and gregarious. I'm crying again. I wish I could have done more for you. I wish I could have provided whatever you were looking for. I'll miss you. I'll never forget you.
See you space cowgirl.

Assuming this is real, that's a tragic loss. Ekureiru was the most dedicated DJ in r/a/dio, his Friday Night Faggotry and Tsund/a/y streams were a source of joy and musical wonders for many anons, week after week. Eku shared all the music in his heart with us, and we shared ours with him through our requests. I won't forget those glorious times we've had, Eku, but you will be missed. I wish I talked with you more often. I shed manly tears for you, no homo.
/r/ you find peace
Ec Tisia, friend

I was late to the party, didn't start tuning into 'til 2015, and then summer of 2017 we met through discord, and found out we lived half an hour from each other. So we did a 3 am whataburger run because why the hell not?
We hung out actively for about a month ish and almost dated, but a lot of shit happened and we fell out, it happens a lot.
I'm sorry I ignored your message to reconnect last month, I regretted that even before hearing the news.
Rest in peace.

Just WEEPING to himself at how SAD of a gaylord he is and asking his buttbuddies to "hey wouldn't it be SAD if you were to never call me back? I'd act like all CONFIDENT and shit in real life and like I'm stable lel but I just cut myself a little duduru~~
His suicidal reaction to shit is so fucking disheartening and real that I honestly don't know how my room isn't full of tears right now.

RIP. Eku really improved as a DJ over the years, I appreciated his streams. In our microculture we make light of depression and suicide, but for all of the other Anons out there who feel pain every day--get help, and keep hope, even if it seems impossible. Some troubles might never leave us, but its possible to live well even with those troubles.

I remember being good friends with Eku back in the day when r/a/dio was a regular thing on /a/. I went to Eden Radio and we made plans to collab on streams, even host No Pan Nights of our own. He taught me all I knew about being a DJ and i'm taking this news harder than I thought I would. He was a good friend and didn't deserve this. I hope you're in a better place and i'll be seeing you soon, you glorious faggot. Say hi to Haruhi for me. RIP brother.

I used to shit on her in the megu threads, but eventually stopped. I thought I made up but when I heard the news I went back through my old messages, and she never clued in to what I was trying to say. I feel like all those times we talked were based on false premises. I just wish I could say sorry explicitly, and show her how much people actually care.
I'm sorry eku. I'm going to carry this guilt for the rest of my life so I don't treat others how I treated you those times.

I dated Eku for about a month last year. She was incredibly sweet and loved what she did with you all. I like to think that it was distracting for her, in a good way. My fondest memory of her is still when I was having a terrible morning, and didn't want to do anything but cry. She told me to tune in, and for an hour straight, she played nothing but calming music, the kind that she knew would help me. She loved all those close to her and tried her best. Thank you guys for giving her a place. F.

I loved Eku's Friday nights, I listened to them numerous times some years ago. He would make my long Fridays at work bearable, including the long rides driving home late at night. I wish he knew how many lives he touched just by playing awesome music and keeping people entertained and pissass drunk whenever they were lonely on those nights.
Rest in peace, friend.

This is so sad. Eku's streams are what got me to listening to r/a/dio back in the day. I used to hang out every Friday and holiday to get wasted with everyone while he streams. Then we started talking on Skype and played LoL together. We even watched movies and anime together.
I haven't talked to him in a couple years because life has been busy, but the last few times I reached out, he didn't respond.
RIP Eku. You'll be missed.

And you shredded it, man: good picks, fun transitions, groovy blocks. I'll never forget your voice calling me or anyone else out over the stream. You were a good DJ, you were a good friend, and you were a good person Eku.
