TOKYO - A Japanese artist who created the hit manga comic series Yu-Gi-Oh!, which spawned a worldwide media franchise including a trading card game, has been found dead in the sea, media reported on Thursday (July 7).
Yu-Gi-Oh!, which means King of Games, debuted as a serialised comic and ran from 1996 to 2004.
It features a boy who solves conflicts using various games.
It led to other series of Japanese comics known as manga, a form of comic or graphic novel with artistic roots in a traditional Japanese style, as well as video games and a card trading game that was popular around the world.
People are also talking about the increased prices, with pink Gucci x Adidas Gazelles hitting the market at US$850 (S$1,191) when they release on July 7.
While hype was building for the Gucci collaboration, Adidas launched another high-fashion tie-in.
The Balenciaga x Adidas collaboration was unveiled at Balenciaga's spring 2023 runway presentation at the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street in May.
The Balenciaga x Adidas Stan Smith shoes – officially titled Balenciaga x Adidas Destroyed Stan Smith, according to the Instagram account @myfacewheno_o – drew the most ire once they were spotted for being exactly what their name suggested.
