Zero no Tsukaima author Noboru Yamaguchi passes away

A truly unfortunate loss.

Well this is unfortunate news.

Noboru Yamaguchi, author of Zero no Tsukaima and Green Green, has passed away. He'd been battling with cancer for quite some time, and in December was re-admitted into the hospital for treatment. 

In his last few tweets from 2012 (he tweeted up until just a few weeks ago), he apologized for delaying the not being able to write the next Zero no Tsukaima novel as quickly as he would have liked. He went on to promise that once he recovered, he'd get straight back to writing.

He was 41 when he passed away.

If you'd like to leave your condolences or just send a message, his personal Twitter might be a good place to do it. You can also find Media Factory's official announcement here.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family.
