R.I.P.

Araki-san was avid smoker, so besides having esophageal cancer because of that, this also kills immune system in lungs and makes it more susceptible, among a lot of things, to mould infections.

Hopefully Japan will wake up one day and will declare serious jail time for all artists who just can not stop depicting smoking superheroes in children (and adult) manga/anime. This insane practice is national shame of Japan, and it should be stopped so people of the future would not be dying early after suffering lasting horrible pains, surgeries, inabilities.
