The original Yu-Gi-Oh manga and anime where some of my favorites in anime. Rest in Peace and thank you so much

Oh, i thought it was homicide….
Police said they were going to investigate it for either accident or homicide, but it's looking more like a freak accident. What a horrible way to go, he was on vacation enjoying himself. His body might've been floating out there for a while, too.

Waking up to this news was sad, but dude's a legend, and will live on as such. Rest in peace, Takahashi.

Apparently he had signs of a shark attack on him when he was found. God that is just so unsettling to think about.

I'm utterly devastated by the news of Mr. Takahashi's passing. The original manga is among my favorites, and it saddens me to know that the man who created such a masterpiece is no longer with us.

Apparently his abdomen and lower body were even devoured by sharks or some other marine animal. God that is just so unsettling to think about.
Tho it was highly likely post-death as sharks don’t normally attack live human beings or eat them for that matter.

I really felt like crying when I heard the news of Takahashi's death. :( He started the Yu-Gi-Oh manga with low expectations and it ended up becoming a worldwide phenomenon. I'm so grateful for all his hard work.

Yes thanks so much for providing those gory details of an already depressing death. :rolleyes:

I am kind of disconnected from the franchise but I did watch the dub back when I was on high school.

May his soul rest in peace

Even though I've fallen out of Yu Gi Oh since Arc V ended (Vrains lost me very quickly and I found it boring) this still makes me feel sad. It's...hard to believe he died, and I'm still in denial. May he rest in pace.

RIP Kazuki Takahashi. Easily one of the manga greats.

Truly unfortunate since it seems like it was merely some sort of diving accident.

I still like Arc V better but Yugioh 7 seems ok. Seeing how Rush dueling develops appears to be a worthwhile story to follow. I'm also not opposed to starting off with mostly tribute summoning to introduce everything since past series made the game very complex and convoluted over time.

YGO Sevens ruined the whole franchise. Just look at how inactive this topic is. Even anime boards like MAL and that Neo Ark YGO site don't bother caring about Sevens or the new series that replaced it.

Oh and I'm late but R.I.P to Takahashi. He was a great man who deserved better

I wouldn’t say that 7 killed the franchise, it was more like the last nail on the coffin.

Ever since Arc-V’s synchro arc, the entire anime made one terrible decision after another. Jack and Crow stole way too much spotlight from the new characters, the Top/Common storyline was a terrible rehash of 5DS without the emotional weight, the prison and tournament arc were ultimately just stalling time because DSoD was siphoning all resources, the XYZ dimension felt pointless since there was nothing to do, the Fusion Dimension incl. the ZARC finale felt like a fever dream and then we got half a dozen of ceremonial battles with an OP Yuya because Vrains was stuck in production hell.

Vrains then had to be delayed, key plot points were rewritten, 6 recap episodes were needed and the series was then rewritten again to end after a rushed and cut third season.

7 simply isn’t appealing to most of the older fans so they dropped it, but from what I’ve heard from people that watch it, the show seems to be decent or it at least not plagued by external problems to the same degree as Arc-V and Vrains.

heck looking back at the early series synopsis, it wasn't just "key plot points", it was the series' entire premise. The old synopsis seemed to be more "shy boy gets help from Vrains' idols to put himself out there more and try new things", which has nothing to do with "hacker on a revenge quest". The first OP and ED's lyrics fit far more to the former as well
