Unfortunately, Sano passed away just a month after she was diagnosed with cancer. In the midst of her battle with illness, she is still planning a new manga.
Her dedication to her craft endures even in the face of adversity. Harta’s editors revealed a poignant passage from Sano’s last letter in which she wrote, “This journey has led to an interesting life. Now, I venture into a realm of boundless freedom. Farewell.”
Sano’s artistic journey began with his debut series “Haven’t you heard? I’m Sakamoto,” first appeared on the Harta pages in 2011 and ended in December 2015. Ported to North America by Seven Seas Entertainment, the manga’s fourth and final volume was released in July 2016. The story was also televised as an anime in April 2016.
Then, in July 2017, Sano introduced the world to “Migi & Dali” in the pages of Harta, weaving her creative magic through November 2021 when the series came to an end.
