Writer's current manga series will continue

Game developer Examu announced on Monday that Arcana Heart creator and writer Tohru Sakurai passed away at the beginning of May. Sakurai's family and close friends held a funeral service.

Sakurai wrote the scenario for the first Arcana Heart 2D arcade fighting game in 2006, and continued to write the scenarios for future games in the series.

Most recently, Sakurai launched the Battle Mexia manga with artist Motoki Yoshihara last July on Kadokawa's Comic Clear website. The Comic Clear editorial department announced that Sakurai's plan for the story is already complete, so serialization will continue.
