The Japan Shore Guard is said to have discovered the body of renowned manga artist Kazuki Takahashi (real name Kazuo Takahashi) off the coast of Nago city in Okinawa. He had reached age 60.

The Coast Guard discovered Takahashi’s body in the morning of Wednesday, July 6, according to NHK (via Anime News Network). He was apparently sporting snorkeling gear, which raises the possibility of a diving mishap. The Coast Guard and police are actively collaborating to determine exactly what caused his death.

The Shore Guard has confirmed that a passing boatman who saw something floating around 300 meters off the coast of Nago about 10:30am was the one who first reported the body.

Kazuki Takahashi career, What was his profession?

In 1982, Takahashi began creating manga. Toki no taka (also known as Fighting Hawk), his debut book, was released in 1990. Tennenshoku Danji Buray (BURAY), one of his early works, was published in two volumes between 1991 and 1992. Takahashi didn’t achieve success until he developed Yu-Gi-Oh! in 1996.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game was developed as a result of Takahashi’s Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, which was first released by Bandai and later Konami. The game’s original name, “Magic and Wizards,” was a play on the name of the card game Magic: The Gathering and the corporation that publishes it, Wizards of the Coast (the name of the card game was altered to “Duel Monsters” in the anime adaptations).

Since the conclusion of the first manga’s run, Takahashi has continued to oversee the production of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. Based on a brand-new game by Kazuki Takahashi, Weekly Shnen Jump published the one-shot manga Drump in 2013.
