Just like his work, Yamaguchi-sensei had a bright and cheerful personality and was loved by many of his friends, editors and anyone who had met him. He was always comfortable in his own skin and full of courage and humor, which has not changed from the first time I have met him to the very end, even during the hardships that he endured mentally and physically.

Thank you so, so much for all the smiles, laughs, and tears you brought to so many fans’ lives, including my own. It’s incredibly saddening that you were taken from us so soon, and that you were not able to finish the series you loved.
Regardless, you will live on through the riveting world you created, with the wonderful, memorable characters you shared with us.
May you rest in peace, Yamaguchi-sensei.
