Japan Coast Guard found Takahashi off Okinawan coast in snorkeling gear on Wednesday morning
As mentioned in the animation thread, Kazuki Takahashi has passed away a few days ago. His body was found off the coast of Nago in an apparent snorkeling accident.
He created one of the darker megafranchises of anime, one with spin -offs that continue since it was created 27 years ago as a series of dangerous games. The cast of Yu Gi Oh seems heavily inspired by Jojo part 4 with an off kilter art style that solidified pretty impressively. Though the series isn't my favourite, the art is good, the early stories are fun and the last arc did have a kind of cool reveal. Fun fact, his last work was actually a Spider-Man/Iron Man story called Secret Reverse.
