>Earlier today, famous anime and manga artist, Kiyohiko Azuma, met an untimely death in a traffic accident in Tokyo, Japan. Three victims total, with two in urgent care, died...

mindless gibberish about the other four dudes of no importance.

>Kiyohiko Azuma was most notable for his creation, the four panel manga strip (yonkama), Azumanga Daioh, which was adapted into an anime of 130 5-minute episodes (later compiled into 26 25-minute episodes). Other of his more notable works include "Wallaby" and "Yotsuba&".

>Despite Azuma's wishes for "Yotsuba&" to remain unanimated, MediaWorks (publisher) claims ownership over the unfinished manga, and they have not shown the same interests as Azuma.

>"It is my belief that 'Yotsuba&' is a series that our fans and others would like to see in a new light," said Tsuguhiko Kadokawa (President of MediaWorks) "We believe that we (could) attract a larger audience to this beautifully orchestrated series by bringing it (into) animation..."

>MediaWorks has already announced production in cooperation with J.C. Staff (studio that animated "Azumanga Daioh") to begin in May, a month after merging with ASCII.
