* The author of ''Manga/BitterVirgin'', Kusunoki Kei, explains that a character's stillborn child in the story was... inspired seems the wrong word here... that she wrote about this, after ''her own miscarriage''. As it is often with Creator Breakdowns, the writing has emotional honesty and power, which stands out in the story's ''extremely'' [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy melodramatic]] tone.

* The other (in)famous example is Creator/YoshiyukiTomino. Reportedly, the famed director struggled with depression for decades, and this was expressed by the high body count of many of the series he directed, such as ''Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon,'' ''Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine,'' ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]],'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]].'' Not surprisingly, this earned Tomino the nickname "KillEmAll". In his defense, however, he likes to do what he can to ensure that his series will not have a sequel. After his battle with depression his work lightened considerably, producing stories like ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'' and ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', which contain positive messages and very few deaths. ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'', is a relatively by-the-numbers ''Gundam'' story, but is said to be expressly aimed at new fans and features a peppy ending theme that shows the entire cast, hero and villain alike, participating in a kick-line.

* A particularly ugly and recent, messy example for Kentarou Yabuki, the creator of ''Manga/BlackCat'' and illustrator for ''Manga/ToLoveRu''. The cancellation of the latter manga was abrupt due to his recent and very, ''very'' messy divorce. It's not exactly easy to continue writing a story of the sweet and lovely GirlNextDoor when [[AuthorAppeal the woman she's based on]] has just had an extremely ugly breakup with you.
** Which is a double shame considering the ''writer'' of the manga didn't base the character on the ex-wife, making one wonder how the story would have turned out if he had hired a different illustrator with a more happy and stable family life.
*** After a lot of drama, a sequel series has been established with both the original writer ''and'' the original artist. Said sequel series almost picks up where the original left off. You may jump for joy now.

* In 2006, {{Nitroplus}}' Creator/GenUrobuchi confessed in his afterword to the first volume of ''[[Literature/FateZero Fate/zero]]'' to a loss in the ability to write heartwarming stories and a "tragedy syndrome" which compels him to make things tragic for the characters he conceived. He has later explained that a childhood trauma from a near-death experience is at least partly responsible for this. Such tendencies showed up in spades in ''[[Literature/FateZero Fate/zero]]'', which was a much darker prequel of ''[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate/stay night]]'', and then, in 2011, in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. [[spoiler:Judging by the BittersweetEnding of that anime though, he appears to have gotten better, though it's up to the individual's thought of whether or not he's fully recovered judging from [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion his]] [[Anime/PsychoPass recent]] [[Series/KamenRiderGaim works]]]].

Then a letter gave him his spirits back - it was from a deceased 10-year-old IllBoy, whose LastRequest was to have an anonymous letter with encouraging words given to him after his death.

** She had another [[https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-29/mangaka-yuu-watase-blogs-about-editorial-harassment when working in]] ''Manga/ArataKangatari'', since her editor during the Suzukuwa arc (named "Mr. I") was so exigent that he constantly ordered her to redraw pages and story the way he wanted and not how she planned because he didn't understand her ideas and thought ViewersAreMorons. Watase was so mentally and physically exhausted that ''she considered quitting manga business as a whole'' over the mistreatment, but thankfully, "Mr I" was replaced by new editor whose was more understanding and didn't interfere in her work during the Yataka Arc.

-->"I lost my mother when I was 21, then I was all alone in the world. To write the story healed my sorrow";"Before I wrote the story of Candy, one of what some decided was "Who is her mother is not the theme". Whoever are your parents, you must accept your destiny and stand on your own feet---I wanted to say so. When I started to write the story, it was two years after my mother passed away. My father passed away at my 12th year, I lived in solitude because I am the only child of them. Looking back on my years of writing Candy story, I realize that I healed my pain by writing".
