Anime News Network is reporting that the editors of Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine have announced that manga artist Isuka Hakozaki passed away unexpectedly at the age of 27. At the time of this writing, no cause of death has been released, and the exact date of Hakuozaki’s death has not been revealed. At this time, I am assuming that Hakozaki passed away during April 2013.
Hakozaki was born in Minamishimabara City. He had just started Caterpillar as his first manga series in March of 2012.
