Mutsumi Inomata has passed away on March 10th, 2024.

It all happened so suddenly…and I only have but a half-finished draft, that I’m sure she’s finishing up in heaven, surrounded by her beloved cats, and creating cute-eyed characters.

To everyone who supported her works, I would like to express my deepest gratitude, and I hope you’ll continue to appreciate her works.

A funeral was held in private with close relatives present. In accordance with her wishes, we will not be accepting offerings or flowers of any kind. Thank you for your understanding.
