I was saying they same thing. How do you have a stroke when you're 29?! Japan's work culture is insane!

My condolences to the family. :(

Who is this guy btw ?

Man, he's just 29 and stroke? He must be not doing a healthy lifestyle.
On top of that, he just gone through a medical check up and found nothing.
Was it caused by energy drinks? Well, that's way too early. May he rest in piece.
