    Default [Breaking] iso_tool creator, takka, announces retirement. Possible suicide.

    This is as close to where it should be given what takka's been doing for the scene but forgive me if it is in the wrong area.

    Source here (Scroll down a bit. Ridiculously large ad at the top of the page)

    Very fresh news, I'll try to translate what little I can.

    takka announces retirement, possible suicide. Thank you to everyone for alerting the authorities.

    Today, it was announced that takka would announce his retirement but, in doing so, added the post script:

    「この記事が表示されているころには、もう私はいません」
    For me to even indicate this, I am no more.

    Its meaning is unclear. It is possible that takka may have pre-announced his suicide. Thank you to everyone for alerting the authorities.

    Source is from N-ZAKI.
    ...
    In short, this N-ZAKI guy has been communicating with takka for a while now and takka sent him the retirement email a few hours ago.

    If you know takka's blog (which I won't link), he even uploaded the source code.
    As far as I understand, the police went to takka's house but found (for lack of a better explanation) the lights on but nobody home.

    So far, takka has yet to be found.

    Somehow I think something got lost in translation.. I doubt he will choose the harikari option.

    It's more like he has been issued with a court warrant and had is computers confiscated. Sony strikes again?.

    It does sound like a mistranslation, but I hope it's not that...
    Have you tried a different translation tool?
    Hopefully someone picks up where his great work left off.

    Maybe Sony's goons got him. I hear they're worse than stride's.

    Chew another piece
    or we'll find you

    Translated and read the article myself..It's not very coherently translated to english with google...I'll try to find a better translator.
    At first I thought "suicide" was a mistranslation of him just retiring from the scene, but I can at least gather that he is suicidal after getting into trouble, but hasn't harmed himself. That's just my interpretation of a bad translation though.
    If someone here knows Japanese they could help us figure this out.
    I do hope he is alright....That would be a tradgedy
