For some context, Toilet Hakase is the longest Shonen Jump manga, at 30 volumes, to never receive any sort of anime adaptation, with only Rokudenashi Blues being a longer Jump manga to never get a TV anime (Rokudenashi at least got two movies in the early 90s). Allegedly, despite being a gag series about scatology, Toilet Hakase is also the origin of Jump's motto of "Friendship, Effort, Victory", though I have no idea how, exactly.

Anyway, RIP to Kazuyoshi Torii.

Thanks for the info. Never knew that this series was so tied to Shonen Jump.

RIP Kazuyoshi Torii
