High School of the Dead | gun

Manga creator Daisuke Satō passed away on March 22, 2017 due to ischemic heart disease. He was known for writing High School of the Dead, a very violent and over-the-top manga surrounding a bunch of young students fighting off and surviving in a zombie apocalypse. Unfortunately, the manga was never finished and went on hiatus in 2011 only to briefly return before going on hiatus again in 2013. Seven volumes and 30 chapters of the series was released and some of it would eventually become adapted into a 12-episode anime in 2010 along with an additional OVA a year later.

We will always remember Daisuke Satō for his creativity and writing style. High School of the Dead might sound like a ridiculous concept but he made it work, creating a series that was very memorable and entertaining. Daisuke Satō passed away at 52.
