Yu-Gi-Oh is a worldwide known brand. The card game is everywhere and continues to evolve, but if it has gotten to this point it is all due to Kazuki Takahashi, the first to have the brilliant intuition of creating a manga about games. Unfortunately, as is well known, Kazuki Takahashi tragically passed away a few days ago.
The whole world then joined in mourning. The author has been honored by fans in various ways, with illustrations, cosplay, phrases, quotes and much more; he was naturally also honored by companies that have collaborated with him such as Konami, Weekly Shonen Jump and many others. And obviously the contribution of many colleagues could not be missing. One of these was George Morikawa.
After saying goodbye to Kentaro Miura last year, the author of Hajime no Ippo is forced to tell once again a memory of a deceased colleague. The veteran thus remembers the Yu-Gi-Oh mangaka: “He had the way of creating a genius who uses his right hand to make the image in his head directly on paper. I was so envious of that talent and thought it would be so much waste to say ‘If you applied yourself to Plus, you could be successful, you know. ‘To which he would always reply’ You and I are different, Manga-kun ‘. He called me Manga-kun because I did things calmly and slowly. I wonder what his personal relationships were like. “
Morikawa then takes more space for one last sentence in this memoir by Kazuki Takahashi: “I think it’s taboo to open a dead person’s computer unless you’re a family member, but what’s the last thing Yu- Did Gi-Oh leave behind? I’m pretty sure what’s stored there is a card – a card that would make you jealous and make you complain about the loss. It’s a card called a talent. Rest in peace”.
