I just remembered an author who died of cancer.
Before he died he tweeted: I want to live.
Who was it again? I suddenly feel depressed.

This could be a trap, given that I've seen cancer-related things /a helluvalot/ today, but you are all supposed to be smart, so if this is a trap and you all fall into it, you all deserve to fall for the trap and I'll just have to pick you all up again:

>>100813752
But the author of Zero no Tsukaima really did die of cancer last year.

Whether he was the one who made the Twitter post, I do not know.
>>
>>100814066
Oh, no, that's not what I mean by trap. I mean that I could be a human agent accidentally falling into a path left as a path of least resistance in some really complicated (or not complicated) system dynamics, since I was just reading about how one of the best modders on Nexus is about to die from a malignant tumor's deposit at the base of his brain, just where the spine begins.

Then there's the medicine man I met telling me about how he does things.

Then there's my professional cancer-researcher friend.

Then there's all my family members who have been hit by cancer.

Gosh, I just realized how abnormally substantial my exposure to cancer is... I'm not allowed to think stupidly.

What does Japan have that's equivalent to, "Let's test aborgininal/traditional medicines X, Y, and Z and then ban everything that doesn't conform to the traditional system as established 70 years ago"?

Isn't it sad that his magnum opus is a mediocre high fantasy novel involving a dense MC and a shitty tsundere?

I mean it sucks that the guy died, but he and the guy that did Alive: The Final Evolution didn't leave much of an impression on the world. Sadly enough I doubt any of us are even going to do anything that even a bunch of social rejects like us would remember.

They both tried so hard to leave an impression, and aside from their families, very few people will remember them. Who'll remember us who at most are secretly borderline normals going to school to work bullshit jobs? What about our neet brothers?

Reading OP's post: sadanime.jpg
Reads second post: ...

I remember reading about a mangaka who was dying in the hospital. Despite his disease he kept on working on finishing his manga, which was something like his life's work.

As his disease progressed, he could do less and less, but he refused to give up no matter what. Eventually he had to dictate everything orally to his assistants while he lay in bed. In the end it payed off. He finally finished his manga, dying soon afterwards.

I really respect dedication like that. After hearing his story, filled with emotion, I put aside my work and started reading his manga. It was shit.

It was good imo but the end was kinda... now that I think of it i suspect the chemo/drugs were messing with his brain. Japanese aren't good at handling having to suddenly wrap up their story because they got axed to begin with so combining that with looming death just made it confusing/incomprehensible.
The result was like a less trippy version of evangelion that's just as incomprehensible.
The dude really could have used more time to work on characterization and plot. He totally needed a couple more volumes.

It was alright, but didn't do anything for me. I can see how people could like it though. What puts me off is that his greatest life's work (or at the very least his most known work) devolved into a battle shounen. Shoot I found the manga and started it at a whim, and apparently most of the people on batoto only knew about it because of the author's death as opposed to the merit of the series itself.

You expect too much of people. It would be abnormal if impending death didn't interfere negatively with the quality of a product. It's a misconception and the result of fiction that death is inspirational. It might be for a very small number of people but for most it's not.

I'm jealous that he had the resolve to actually publish something because my passion for writing and music died a long time ago during my edgy, existential teenage years.

It sucks that he'll only be remembered for a mediocre LN, but on the other hand it's nice that he'll even be remembered. What about a piece of shit like me who at most will prevent some asshat's kid from dying from pneumonia if I ever get to that point?

Then again I could just be projecting hard as a motherfucker and the world is much nicer than I think, and everyone will be remembered and praised for whatever contribution they made no matter how meager or seemingly inconsequential

I'm not saying that I could do better than him. I'm just saying that his life's greatest work involves a harem made up of a tsundere, a kuudere, and of course the sexiness that is siesta.

I could just be deeply distressed and my posts are incoherent and only slightly more organized than the regular shitposter's

No, there's really no such thing as that sort of stuff. Videos like the one he posted claim to have all the cures that the big bad medical industry is hiding from you while providing no scientific evidence, no real studies, and nothing besides false hope for the gullible. These people literally make their living off of convincing people who are dying to give them all of their money for miracle cures.
These miracle cures are things that people believed worked in a time when the average life expectancy was under 50 years, that movie actually attempted to make the connection that a lower percentage of people got cancer during a time when people lived substantially shorter lives than they do today, and of course that's true, fuck it takes less than 1 minute on google to find that the median age of cancer diagnosis across almost all types is above 50.
Scared and ignorant people do far more damage than those who actually put in the years of research required to fix shit.

You didn't even answer my question. Get out, why? You're not even the OP, this thread was about a dead author.

>>100827871
It's 1am here buddy

>>100827885
Same difference. Otherwise are you saying you're the normalfag?
>>
>>100827918
Time is irrelevant to if someone is a normalfag or not.
>>
>>100827824
You didn't fuck off like I told you too. Do it and I might consider answering your question.
>>
>>100827953
You can do better than that.

Do better than what?
I'm normalfag as fuck but I browse here at 4am on a weekday.
I get Thursday and Friday off so it's technically my weekend.

Why are you so cranky in a thread about a dead author in the first place, anyway?

I actually really, really liked Alive....
Then again, I was like 15 back when I read that shit. I probably shouldn't read it again.

>ZnT author died from cancer


Theres some poetic justice in there somewhere

Zero no Tsukaima wasn't even good in the first place

A lot of people die everywhere else in more miserable ways anyway

True enough, but it isn't wrong to dwell on the one of those many deaths you're aware of, for a short moment.

Yeah, those random Russian killings done by that three man gang have really been on my mind lately. Just walked up to the guy, "how are you?" then proceed to blow his brains out with a silenced pistol. I've seen plenty of executions and killings but just something so random.. what was that guys final thoughts? "Okay, where did I that calcula-". Is it instant? Do you feel that hot piece of metal in your head?

Ah shit, this right after I finish Brothers.

I'm fucking done. I'm going to fap now to confuse my emotions a bit.

If so, it was only for a moment at least. Jesus christ, I'm suddenly reminded of the cannibal guy who ate children and sent letters to the parents with full detail of what he did to them.

You better BELIEVE IT motherfuckers

Humans beings are wired to take the easiest path, you'd be considered a freak by the majority for not choosing to.

I cried it like a bitch when my dog got fed poison by my neighbor and had to put it down

"Anon, why don't you smile anymore? you used to be such a nice kid"
