    There will be a dark future awaiting the hit "High School of the Dead" series as its creator, Daisuke Sato passed away last Wednesday, March 22 from ischaemic heart disease. Aside from the zombie apocalypse manga series, he is also known as a board game designer and a novelist. He is also behind the game "Red Sun Black Cross" and novel "Seito."

    According to Anime News Network, the 52-year-old artist was already given a funeral service with his younger sister Yuko Shinmyo leading it. His work with illustrator Shoji Sato is what made him really popular. It is about a bunch of young students fighting off and surviving a zombie apocalypse.

    Sadly, the hit manga series was not finished and underwent a hiatus from 2008 up to 2010. Fans have patiently waited for the series to continue, however, only one chapter was managed to be released in a brief comeback in April 2013. All in all, the series spawned 7 volumes and 30 chapters prior to Sato's death.
