** Some months after the end of his most famous manga, ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', he revealed on Twitter that the tenth year of publishing was ''incredibly'' hard on him due to stress and [[IllBoy bad health.]]. 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. The post finished with [[http://tenshiscave.tumblr.com/post/153300055417/kubo-tite-bleach-twitter a request for his fans:]] [[IWillFindYou to help him search for the kid and his family.]]

* 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'' ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', which contain positive messages and very few deaths. His most recent work, ''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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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".

* Creator/YuuWatase went through one when she was working on ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden''; she was thinking of ''maybe'' [[spoiler: sparing Takiko's life]], but then one of her best friends died in an accident, and she decided to [[spoiler: go "StatusQuoIsGod" and kill Takiko off.]]

* The most famous instance of this in the world of anime is Creator/HideakiAnno and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. The first half of the show was made while he was deep in depression over his career and the {{otaku}} lifestyle of the time. The atmosphere is bleak and moody, but also calm. Everyone has problems but they are downplayed as the series goes on and takes a turn for the optimistic towards the middle. The second half was when he was going through therapy and started to recover. Shinji becomes suddenly competent and gets eaten twice [[spoiler: and is completely shattered after Kaworu's appearance and death.]] Asuka gets mindraped and her massive, ''massive'' issues are revealed. Rei's emotional development is undone [[spoiler: because she dies to protect Shinji, and the Rei from the end of the series is a clone with her own issues]]. Misato finally rekindles her romance with Kaji [[spoiler:only to have him shot the next episode]] and spends the rest of the series crying, completely broken - it's like all the bottled emotion in the first half gets let loose, as everything the series has shown so far gets brutally deconstructed in the second half. Anno's efforts to understand his own troubles also shows in how the last two episodes put the cast through a psychological examination. Finally ''End Of Evangelion'' took all this to the extreme, a TakeThat against the sections of his audience that Anno had come to hate.

* One of the reasons why the ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]'' movies are in DevelopmentHell is the ''very'' serious illness (unspecified, but speculated to be a nasty combo of cancer '''and''' depression) that affects Chiaki Morosawa, head script writer and wife to director Mitsuo Fukuda. [[AuthorExistenceFailure Mrs. Morosawa finally passed away in 2016, which left all of this unresolved.]]

* In 1972, Go Nagai released 2 manga around the same time: {{Devilman}} and Anime/{{Mazinger Z}}. The former was something that he considered to be his greatest work, while the latter's popularity heavily overshadowed it at the time. Toward the end of Devilman, his depression got the better of him and left the series with an ending that would put Anno to shame. Amusingly, the series became much more popular after its run finished.
* A FanSub example: the final two episodes of LIME Anime's subtitles of ''[[IchigoOneHundredPercent Ichigo 100%]]'' begin with detrimental messages from the subber: "We recommend you stop watching now! Please watch something else!" on Episode 11, and "Why did you download this? It sucks!" on Episode 12.
