Kaze no Stigma Creator, Takahiro Yamato Passes Away


 
 
Yet, other than knowing that he created Kaze no Stigma, we know almost nothing else about him. No age, no cause of death, no other works of note. Just, he passed away Monday, and that at 6 volumes, the story of Kaze no Stigma is incomplete. Though critical acclaim may not have been in the cards for the Anime adaptation, I can't help feel sad for any story that will never reach its conclusion.

I never liked the series but it's still sad to see a creator pass away.

Nooo! Tis a shame... I enjoyed the series personally, and it is unfortunate that it will forever remain incomplete...

I can't explain why I watched that show all the way through, but it was solid, if not particularly novel.

By "Passes Away" you mean "Dies" right?

@ethan: That would be correct.

He died of cancer, not sure which kind but I read about it earlier.
