The visual novel and anime writer/composer Jun Maeda recently posted on Twitter notifying his followers that he has been in hospital since Monday. His exact illness hasn’t been revealed, but he has spoken about his poor physical condition in the media as of late, and his message to his fans read “I am going to be hospitalized from now. In order to return in good health, I’ll have medical treatment.”
Known for his work on many of Key’s visual novels including Kanon, AIR, CLANNAD, and Little Busters!, all of which became anime with Maeda’s musical composition, he also gave the P.A.WORKS anime series Angel Beats! and Charlotte their stories and music. The anime adaptation of another Key game Maeda contributed to, the love simulation Rewrite, has been announced as a summer season release, but whether or not he’s involved with the anime is yet to be revealed.
