Yu-Gi-Oh is a well-known brand worldwide. The card game is everywhere and evolving, but if it's come this far, then that's it all because of Kazuki Takahashi, the first to have the brilliant intuition to create a manga about games. Sadly, as we know, Kazuki Takahashi tragically passed away a few days ago.

The whole world then mourned. The author has been honored by fans in various ways, with illustrations, cosplay, phrases, quotes and more; Of course, he was also honored by companies that worked with him, such as Konami, Weekly Shonen Jump and many others. And of course the contribution of many colleagues could not be missing. One of them was George Morikawa.

After leaving Kentaro Miura last year, the author of Hajime no Ippo is forced to retell the memory of a deceased colleague. With this, the veteran remembers the Yu-Gi-Oh mangaka: “He had the way of creating a genius who uses his right hand to put the image in his head directly onto paper. I was so jealous of this talent and thought it would be such a waste to say, 'If you applied to Plus, you could be successful, you know.' To which he would always reply, 'You and I are different Manga-kun '. He called me Manga-kun because I did things calmly and slowly. I wonder how his personal relationships were."

Morikawa then takes more space for a final sentence in this memoir by Kazuki Takahashi: "I think it's taboo to open a dead person's computer unless you're a family member, but what's the last thing yu- Did Gi-Oh leave behind? I'm pretty sure what's stored there is a card - a card that would make you jealous and lament the loss. It's a card called Talent. Rest in peace".
