After seeing the article at Anime News Network earlier today and sharing what I gleaned from that, I’m learning that there’s actually conflicting information coming out of Japanese media.
NHK World is reporting that Leiji Matsumoto is in intensive care after having been put into a medically induced coma. Apparently, the hospital told NHK that a preliminary diagnosis indicated that Matsumoto is in serious condition, but that it will be at least another 24 hours before further details are known.
But, from what Anime News Network was reporting earlier today from their sources, things sounded more positive for Leiji Matsumoto. So what’s the truth here? We’ll just have to wait and see, I guess.
