Update At 4:03 AM JST on October 29th, Shudo has been pronounced dead at the age of 61.

MSN Japan reports that Takeshi Shudō, former head writer of the Pokémon anime, collapsed at Nara railway station's smoking area around 6:00am on Thursday, October 28th. Upon being discovered by a passerby, he was rushed to the hospital and is undergoing surgery. It was soon determined at the hospital's emergency care center that Shudō had suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage in his head.
Shudō was a key part of the initial stages of the anime's original series. He wrote the first episode, which aired over ten years ago, and was a scriptwriter for the first three movies and the Mewtwo Returns TV special. His most recent Pokémon work was in 2003, writing the screenplay for the 244th episode of the anime, Yadon's Comprehension! Satoshi's Comprehension! (Enlighten Up!).
In Japan, Shudō is best known as the creator of the classic manga and anime series, Magical Princess Minky Momo. His other credits include Martian Successor Nadesico and Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
