You gotta be kidding me....

Why is it that every time someone from the anime/manga/light novel industry dies we don't learn about it until weeks later???

This is disastrous news, there goes YET ANOTHER incomplete series that ends with a sad death of the author. Sad

well if there is enough material i am sure they could do a second season and perhaps do another ending for some of his manuscripts that I am sure he was writing.... this just to much of shock for me. I am done bumping because there really isn't a point right now and thanks for the spoilers "really i don't mind" i need to read the light novels now.

"unfinished"

Not only does that suck for the fans, it must really suck for an artist (if they were aware they were dying and not get to finish their work)

Oh man. This is awful news. An author dying with his series, too.

Condolences, obviously.

I hope that another light novel author replace Matsuno just to continue to write the light novel, but before this, he will know the story. According to Adala-News, it is revealed that Matsuno was passed away at 32.

I wish there could be updates on the cause of his death, since people from other sites are speculating its suicide. It's bad timing too, since he just got his material adapted to TV not too long ago.

And condolences to him and his family. Sad
