It would suck if he did. Anime/Manga needs more productions like Kami Nomi.

So sad, I haven't read the manga but I'm hooked on the anime and I'm about on episode 7 of season two. Seems like great creative minds are always troubled. I hope he realizes how much people love his work and appreciate him for it, maybe some thank you letters and support from his fans...

This sort of stuff never occurred to me. suicide aside, it's really troubling hearing his manga will finish soon. I mean once twgok is finished what will he have? He'll have to start from the beginning finding new material or try a different profession all-together.

If your reason for thinking he's suicidal is Kami Nomi's change to a dark story, then Urobuchi Gen should be having the worst life possible.

You know for the longest time I had felt that the author had been stalling the plot. It kind of seems like he really did not want this manga to end and not because he wanted to continue the story. I am going to go out on a limb and say he was probably a bit afraid that he wouldn't be able to get a new manga up and running, so he was trying his hardest to just not finish this one.

It's a shame, because I would have liked to see him return to the present day. Bu the manga has been floundering for a while. Kaori was good, but the last 15 chapters have been pretty meh. The way the writings been going, it feels more like an editorial decision than the authors.

My guess for the ending would be

This is the strangest post I've ever read ANYWHERE. How do you know this man's suicidal?!

CLAMP, Urobutcher, the guy who writes Berserk, Kubo Tite......I could go on but just because someone writes dark stuff does not mean that they're suicidal.

Writing dark content does not necessarily mean the artist in question is having a hard life. If you're looking for an emotional impact, it's simply easier to draw out negative emotions rather than happy ones, both from the writer and the reader. For example, a happy romance is nice, but it never packs the same punch as a tragic one. I myself love writing and reading about dark topics, not because I'm sad and want to project that, but because I love having my feelings swayed as much as possible- and it's undoubtedly easier to make me bawl my eyes out in sadness rather than happiness. I'm already living a very happy life, so those kinds of feelings are far too normal- it takes something rare and shocking to really make an impression.

That being said, the end of TWGOK has been in sight for a long time. This whole manga is about a boy who goes from hating reality to appreciating it as an intricate 'game' to be challenged. Keima has finally come to terms with the world, seeing it as something that needs to be tacked head on rather than ignored. Now that this has occurred, it's only natural that the story would come to a close.

He is a manga artist and this is all the things manga artist goes through. It really tough to make it big in manga and he failed many time but finally get success with TWGOK. Many people around the world, particularly writers, goes through the same problem he does. Struggling for there one big break and once that ends, they are back finding that big break again. I guess what best would be for him to take what he has learn from all these years working on TWGOK and apply it to his next work if he continue to do manga.
