    0th bit/Everdrive forums aren't fully working due to wrong id's from importer. (fixing just takes time) 0th bit posts will be added. Only major issue is the importer copied html/classes which show so need to find a way to strip/convert. this was caused from converting html rips back to SQL.

Hiroshi Kajiyama, AKA Kensuke Suzuki, has passed away


Robust Member

Kensuke Suzuki started his career in the 80s as an illustrator, designing cover art and illustrations for games, tabletop RPGs and magazines such as Warlock. In parallel with his Western-influenced style –he took inspiration from artists such as Frank Frazzeta and Jeffrey Catherine Jones – he developed another style in the early 90s and signed these works under a different name: Hiroshi Kajiyama. He used both names in his early years in the video game industry (where he also worked as a graphic designer), then signed all of his works Hiroshi Kajiyama.
He directed the video game company Rit’s under what (GDRI and) I assume is his real name: Kensuke Suzuki.

He is mostly known in the West for his work on the Shining Force series but also worked on games such as Golden Sun as a chara-designer (the character illustrations were made by Shin Yamanouchi).
He worked on a lot of adult games and illustrated many erotic mangas (one of them has been published in France earlier this year).
On July 14, 2018, his son posted a message on Twitter saying that his father passed away. He was working on the manga Curse Blood as well as on a comic based on the Chinese game The Soul of Hunter.

Some of his works:
