Sorry I was way too drunk while writing that, think I pulled the "death by 30" out of my ass, can't find any source, no idea where I got that from
Reading the linked article it says that she told her editor>"You'll be dead at 35.">I went completely pale.>Why am I going to be dead at 35? >A drug overdose? A hit and run? >I don't want to die.>I couldn't stop thinking about her ominous prediction.>She had seen the shadow of death hovering over me.>But her premonition, it turns out, had in fact been directed at herself.
she also tried commiting suicide before:>Having attempted to commit suicide in the past, Nekojiru had written wills on a number of occasions. >Her last extant will in fact dated from several years prior.
her manga also seemed to tell awful much about herself, like the first one, Nekojiru Udon Ch. 11, where the cat wants to become invisible>I wanted to go and see the other shore myself, but for some reason I was scared and couldn't do it.. >But one day, I just felt like I had to go see the other shore. I couldn't bear it any longer
