The mangaka of Inu x Boku, Cocoa Fujiwara, passed away. She would have turned 32 this month.
It feels like all these potentially related to twitter suicides have fucking useless followers who seem incapable of not noticing the signs of potential suicide.
What is the point of following someone on twitter if you can't even save their life?
May we meet in another life, sensei.
Not really looks like she's going to sudoku
>Her debut was with a work called CALLING, which she made when she was only fifteen. She chose not to go to high school so that she could draw manga.
We have lost a friend and champion today.
May flights of angels, hot ones of either sex, sing thee to thy rest.
The realization that she was a prodigy who had a successful career and had accomplished more before thirty than some mangaka, and certainly all anons, ever do in their entire lives?
>the mangaka who had been sick for quite some time?
Kazushi Hagiwara, Ai Yazawa, Torajirou Kishi, the list of either legitimately ill or otherwise "sick" seiyuu goes on and on.
Being a mangaka must be hard. Stress and heart failure, maybe.
>RIP in peace
>rest in rip
Top 5 trends on twitter right now.
There are illnesses that can do this. Poor Ritsuko Okazaki dropped dead suddenly from sepsis, and I knew a guy in college whose girlfriend died suddenly from glycemic shock brought on by undiscovered diabetes.
Araki is immortal. I'd be more worried about the melancholy mangaka if there's a curse on the loose - Asano or Shinichi Sakamoto sudoku'ing would not surprise me, and I'm reasonably certain Kitoh's constantly on the edge of snapping and trying to kill all the children in sight.
She did die pretty young. Any culture would be saying the same thing. Even this thread is saying the same thing. At least they're not calling her a used up old hag for being over 25.
Shouldn't the Golgo 13 guy be pushing ninety by now? Realistically, he's high on the list. It'll be a weird sort of silence when the last issue comes off the presses.
>shitty eating habits that go with the lifestyle
>probably poor hygine
I honestly would be ok with getting rid of weekly manga and making big magazines like jump shuffle the lists so something new comes every week, but authors only need to produce 2 chapters a month. Seems like it would be good for everyone. Old guard gets to not die young and live a bit more, new people get more chances for real estate, people get more manga.
Maybe she died from loneliness and they're covering it up by saying it was an illness. She was 31 and single, right? Because she didn't even go to high school and probably realized that she'll forever be undesirable and uneducated Christmas cake whose only talent is omnipandering cartoon art, replaceable by any younger talent. Perhaps she had a sex toy accident and died from auto-erotic asphyxiation or puncture wounds.
Art extremely related.
She just wanted to make people happy and follow her passions
Her latest pictures with the rest of the Haruhi cast are worrying, really. I honestly don't mind her leaving the industry completely, but I also don't want to suddenly lose the only way to make sure that she's still fighting.
I'm seriously depressed right now. She was a great artist, and way too young to die. S2 never, on top of that. I'll buy the manga in her memory.
It's kind of ironic that she died after writing a story about death and reincarnation, though.
Good night,sweet princess
It's not fair, I was thoroughly enjoying her latest work, and it just got a Drama CD too so I was hoping for an Anime soon.
Nooo, not Cocoa!
Seriously, how is that even a real name?
