Today, we’re heartbroken to learn that Maidy, the author of the The Father of Light blog has passed away due to illness.
His passing was announced by the official Dad of Light Twitter account early this morning.
The blog, which chronicled the touching story of a son re-connecting with his father through Final Fantasy XIV, was adapted into a television series, Dad of Light back in 2017 (which is still available on Netflix.)
After the popularity of the television series, the story was then adapted into a two hour movie which debuted last June in Japan.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Maidy’s family and friends.
