Pokémon Writer Rushed To The Hospital

On Thursday morning at 6am Japan time (8am AEDST), Takeshi Shudo collapsed at Nara Station. The 61-year-old was spotted near the station's smoking area, and he was rushed to the hospital. Shudo suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage.

Shudo is best known as the head writer for the original Pokémon anime and creating TV anime Fairy Princess Minky Momo. This year, Shudo was working on a new project called Cheer Figu!

    I came to the conclusion he was going to be fine until I read the article on subarachnoid haemorrhages, it painted a pretty grim picture.

    "An estimated 10-15% of patients die before reaching the hospital. Mortality rate reaches as high as 40% within the first week. About half die in the first 6 months.

    Mortality and morbidity rates increase with age and poorer overall health of the patient."

    SOme time with Nurse Joy and he will be back on his feet in no time :)

    Insert Pokemon Center joke he-

    Oh, too late.

    "Takeshi Shudo has Whited Out!"
