According to Mainichi, the late Kurimoto Kaoru's novel Guin Saga won the special award of the 30th Japan Sci-fi Taisho. The incomplete final volume 130 "The Unknown Tomorrow" will be released this month.

In the afterword of the volume 130, Kurimoto's husband Imaoka Kiyoshi said he wants someone to succeed to the series.

The grand prize winner is Itoh Keikaku's novel "Harmony". Itoh passed away of lung cancer this March. He was 34 years old. He also wrote the novel adaptation of PS3 game Metal Gear Solid 4.

Sad to see both authors are dead.

It must have been a quite disturbing year.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

It's really a shame that the these two works that won awards can't be continued. Congrats none the less.

Guin Saga is a sci-fi anime?

About the creator, may he rest in peace!

It turned out to be a SF hidden as fantasy. But it ended up being actually SF.
