. ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’ creator Kazuki Takahashi found dead « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NPR – Takahashi’s body was reportedly found floating off the coast of Nago in Okinawa, wearing snorkeling gear. Takahashi, a comic book artist, started his career in the 80s. But his big success came in 1996, when he first published the Yu-Gi-Oh! in the popular comic magazine Weekly Shonen Jump. The series focused on a spiky haired precocious boy named Yugi who, after solving an ancient puzzle, gets possessed by an ancient spirit that helps Yugi challenge various bullies and bad guys to mystic games. The comic ran for 8 years and became a worldwide sensation, inspiring a trading card game that’s sold billions of cards.
