I was very sad to hear Fujiwara Cocoa passed away on March 31, 2015. ANN reports that Oricon states it was due to an illness. Regardless of the circumstances, she was far too young. My condolences to her friends and family.
She is best known for Inu x Boku SS (review here). Yen Press is releasing the manga, and Sentai Filmworks released the anime. Other titles she has written include Dear, a series about a boy searching for the one who cursed him and a girl with a secret, and Katsute Mahou Shoujo to Aku wa Tekitai Shite Ita, a 4-koma involving an evil officer who falls in love at first sight with the magical girl who wants to defeat him.
I remember reading Dear and liking it, but I don’t think I read to the end. As for Katsute Mahou Shoujo to Aku wa Tekitai Shite Ita, I was really enjoying it. It will unfortunately never have a proper ending, as it was ongoing. It had just been adapted into a drama CD.
I see that her birthday was April 28th. Maybe we can make it Fujiwara Cocoa day? I think I’ll do a special post(s) involving her titles. Anybody else in? You know, read her titles, post pictures, watch the Inu x Boku SS anime, etc. Just a way to remember this talented manga author.
