The police in the Tokyo ward of Shibuya have announced on Wednesday that the cause of death for former adult actress and media personality Ai Ījima was pneumonia. Ījima was found dead in her Tokyo apartment in December. The former Matsue Okubo began her career as an actress in late-night television and adult videos, but made a quick and successful transition as a mainstream media personality by 1993. She branched into film, countless television appearances, novels, and even manga.

She co-created the three-volume Time Traveler Ai manga with artist Takeshi Takebayashi. Central Park Media's CPM Manga division later licensed the story from Gakken and released it in North America from 1999 to 2001.
