any information about his health?

Maeda Jun is a very special person to me. Clannad was one of my first anime and I fell in love with his work since then. His music is beautiful, his storys are amazing. Whatever he creates has a special place in my heart. Everytime if I feel lonely and sad i remember one of his qoutes and I can smile again...
Maeda Jun I am so grateful to witness you and your work thank you for everything!!!

In a sense, Clannad was my first anime. In another sense, (since because I watched Another and Tokyo Ghoul before hand and wasn't interested in anime at the time), it wasn't at the same time.

Naturally, I've come to love this guy! He's been involved in a lot of anime that I really liked, including Air and Clannad, and Lia did a great job singing his lyrics for Charlotte, Air, Clannad and Angel Beats. Both of these people are amazing!

This man can write excellent plot, he can draw a manga and even make a great soundtrack :)
He is genius :)

The most melodramatic writer of our generation. His plots are often overly contrived and/or poorly thought out. The majority of his characters are shallow moe-trons. But god damn, when he's on target he generates the feels more deeply than anyone. Clannad After Story literally changed my life. And musically, he's a genius with those uneasy synthesizer mixes. Much respect! And a good model for writers/artists: find your niche!

Well for one someone needs to work on their grammar, but also Jun Maeda is not dead. The person who made that comment either heard that he had a heart condition and assumed that he died from it or is stating that he is currently dying. It's hard to tell with the incorrect grammar. In any case I love Jun Maeda. A great visual novel writer, and his music gets my heart every time.
