Poor dude, respect for him to fight his disease and still finish the manga, compared to others *cough*HxH*cough* ...Hope he goes to heaven and gets 77 virgins...or dates...or virgin dates <.<

The reason they annulled the anime 11 days before his dead...kinda tells you why....you normally got the author with you on the anime production to guide you through the story and some specific scenes and details. Tadashi probably couldn't do that in his last days since it was too much and too exhausting for him to do it....

So.....is it only me or do mangaka die quite young? (Except the bad mangakas bigrazz or the classic ones)

He continued his work despite having to fight with cancer... I respect him for that. As a fan of Tadashi Kawashima's work, I will truly miss him. Rest In Peace.
