Kazuki Takahashi, Japanese cartoonist known for making manga, has died at the age of 60 Yu-Gi-Oh!, which was a huge success all over the world between the nineties and the first decade of the twenty-first century. Takahashi was found dead on one of the beaches of Nago, a city in the Japanese archipelago of Okinawa: he was wearing snorkeling equipment, but the cause of death is currently unclear. Takahashi created the manga Yu-Gi-Oh! 1996: At the center of the story were some characters who challenged each other to a game of blackjack. An animated series and a collectible card game were drawn from the manga, which, in turn, was a huge success.
