Yu-Gi-Oh! manga creator Kazuki Takahashi‘s autopsy revealed on Monday that Takahashi had died by drowning on July 6. It is unlikely that this was the result of a criminal act.
The Japan Coast Guard found Takahashi (real name Kazuo Takahashi) off the coast of Nago city in Okinawa on the morning of July 6. He was 60 years old.
Takahashi’s body was found floating off the coast of Nago in Okinawa, he was said to be traveling alone on a snorkeling trip.
The Coast Guard reportedly found Takahashi equipped with snorkeling gear. Both the Coast Guard and police are currently investigating the events that led up to Takahashi’s death. A person on a passing boat had called Japan’s maritime hotline to report an apparent body, floating 300 meters (about 1,000 feet) from the coast off the resort city of Nago, at about 10:30 a.m. on July 6.
Yu-Gi-Oh! first ran as a serialized manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from September 1996 through March 2004. The story of Yu-Gi-Oh! centered on spiky-haired protagonist Yugi Muto, who, after solving an ancient device known as the Millennium Puzzle, summoned a mysterious spirit that powers he alter ego, Yami Yugi. Together, they sought the power to become powerful duelists in the ancient and presciently modern game of Duel Monsters and challenged others to games with heavy stakes.
