My earlier information was proven wrong. Now that I have researched through some sites, it is known that Suzue Miuchi is in fact in her 50s and relaunched her manga about more than a year ago. It gained great popularity in the US and sold more than $210 million and growing. It is true that this manga has been written since 1976 but apparently it stopped being published in 2004. Suzue Miuchi relaunched Glass Mask in the summer of 2008. Also, the manga had reached its 42nd volume when it stopped being published in 2004. If I read the information correctly, Suzue Miuchi continued on from there and Glass Mask has yet to end. The first television series inspired by Glass Mask was in 1984 and the remake in 2005-2006.

For more information, google it yourself or check out some of the sites i used:

Hmmm I have spent the last .... well.... hour looking into this. I cant find any news site reporting the death of Suzue Miuchi (the author of glass mask) and the only recent news I can find at all with her name in it is about a autograph signing she did for the president of Taiwan on Feb. the 4th of this year. I even found a very detailed fan site for glass mask that had a very thorough bio on her and it even offered an email address to reach her at, yet obviously no mention of death.

So.... unless someone can go read her actual webpage which is in japanese (which I sadly can not read) there may be no definitive answer. I dont know it just seems odd, she would only be in her early 50's which is barely "old" by todays standards so maybe the the trivia was just poorly written and maybe meant she would only disclose the ending on her deathbed? Lets hope so anyway.

If anyone can offer further clarification please have at it.

The author of the manga revealed the ending to one fan on that fan's deathbed. A grandaughter sent a letter to Suzue Michie and told her that her grandmother was on her deathbed. The author decided to send an artboard to the grandmother so that she could finally see the ending before she died. The artboard managed to arrive in time and the contents still have yet to be revealed.

There was a Japanese article in the magazine Josei Jishin about this event and you can find the details from the article in English on this page: http://www.dreamsaddict.com/GarasuNoKamen/GnKNews.html by scrolling down to the October 24th 2006 entry.

Indeed as the newsletter was just written a little strangely. Thank you for the information. No surprise it was so hard to find any reference considering how long ago this happened.
