Aortic dissection.

For all you Berserk readers here, it will never be finished.

My human lungs and vocal cords cannot scream loud enough to express my anguish.

Really sucks. Man was among the best comics illustrators out there. His art was always amazing; I was never confused regarding what was happening on a page, his panel layouts, sense of motion, etc were always perfect.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
Berserk will always be more interesting to me for its legacy (inspiration for so much dark fantasy and many other writers/settings) than what it is (deeply edgy grimdark filled with gore and rape with good art). This is still rough news; I hope it pushes policy/attitudes towards giving manga authors more room for breaks to decompress and deal with their life issues without looming deadlines.
