Lost in Translation
Manga creator Miyuki Noma reports that Hakusensha and Akita Shoten staff members notified her that Sukeban Deka creator Shinji Wada passed away. He was 61. Wada is best known for creating the Sukeban Deka manga series about a high school girl who works as an undercover crime fighter. The manga inspired a video anime project and several popular live-action series and films. His other works include Pygmalio and Crown (with artist You Higuri). He launched his most recent manga, Kugutsushi Rin, in Akita Shoten's Mystery Bonita magazine in 2006.
