The Japan Cartoonists Association revealed on Thursday that manga creator Enaga Takabatake passed away due to a stroke on August 21. Takabatake was 29.

The family held a funeral on August 24 and a Buddhist memorial service on October 7.

Takabatake began publishing manga online under the pen name "President Takabatake" in high school. Takabatake's Wagaya ga Ichiban! (Our House is Best!) was the runner-up in the comic division of Takarajima Wondernet's Digital Comic Prize awards in 2008. Takabatake made a professional debut with the college graduation work ZELBESTY in 2011.

The Latin: Takabatake Enaga Tanpenshū manga collection shipped in 2012, and it ranked in the list of top 20 manga for male readers in Takarajimasha Inc.'s Kono Manga ga Sugoi! guidebook that same year. Takabatake's other manga include 100 Handred: Takabatake Enaga Tanpenshū and Godspeed.
