Manga Creator Hiroto Wada Passes Away

The editors of Kodansha’s Evening magazine have announced that manga creator Hiroto Wada suddenly passed away on July 18, 2021 due to a cerebral hemorrhage and other contributing factors. He was 46 years old at the time of his passing.

Wada’s manga titles include Phara-o, a comedy about an Egyptian pharaoh in modern Tokyo which he drew from 2017 to 2018. He then serialized another story about a character out of time, the Disney Manga: Stitch and the Samurai (Tono-sama to Stitch) in 2020.

Wada just launched a new period comedy titled Yankee Mito Kōmon in Evening on March 23, 2021, and the manga’s first print volume just shipped on July 21, 2021, three days after his passing.
