Apparently, the 60-year-old manga artist was floating lifeless in the water when he was found. Dead Kazuki Takahashi, the father of Yu-Gi-Oh: was 60 years old. The Japanese media announced this Thursday morning the death at the age of 60 of the cartoonist, known worldwide for his manga published between 1996 and 2004.
The manga artist Kazuki Takahashi is dead. The body of the Japanese artist and inventor of the globally successful comic world “Yu-Gi-Oh!”, which is probably known to many as a series, was found on Wednesday, according to media reports. On Thursday, authorities confirmed Takahashi’s identity.
His disappearance is still the result of investigations by the Japanese authorities, but through NHK (via HITC) we learn that his body was found in shallow water in Nago, Okinawa, at 10.30 am on July 6 and was wearing snorkeling equipment: we do not yet know all the details, but it would seem that he unfortunately drowned.
At roughly 10:30 on Wednesday morning a call was placed to the emergency number for the Japan Coast Guard in Okinawa. A marine leisure business operator had spotted a dead body floating in the ocean about 300 meters (984 feet) off the coast of the city of Nago.
Takahashi was 60 years old. Authorities are investigating the circumstances of the death and have already concluded the autopsy of the deceased, whose remains will be sent to his family in Tokyo soon, the spokesman for the maritime institution added.
Pre-published between September 1996 and March 2004 in weekly Shōnen Jump magazine before landing in France in the early 2000s at Kana, Yu-Gi-Oh! had seduced teenagers around the world with its mix of RPG (role-playing video game) and Egyptian mythology.
