Has there ever been the death of a character in the middle of the story?

    I've been wondering this for a long time, has there ever been a manga/anime where the main character dies before the conclusion of the story.

    I don't mean for example if Naruto and the Akatsuki leader kill each other in the final battle.

    I mean if Naruto died when he fought Sasuke at the valley of the end and the story went on to be focused on someone else.

    he means the MAIN MAIN character, not the rival or the partners.. but the main focus of the whole story

    i guess it kind of happened in dbz, goku was meant to die after the frieza arc and gohan was meant to take over the show.. but everyone loved goku too much so they brought him back
    thats the only one i can think of

    Ya, I meant the main character. Its pretty assured that there are side characters that died off. Though I've never heard of THE main character getting killed off, and I was wondering if it ever did happen before the finale.

    Generally unless there is alot of multiple type main characters that wont happen. By the main main character dying and someone else taking the spot its almost impossible. The one thing I can think of is ZOIDS anime and manga. At first it was Van, but then it moves on to other main characters. But thats mostly cuz its totally different storylines. Like Zoids ZERO takes place MANY years after Chaotic Century. But in the sense that you are talking about i'd say that has never happened. If its about other side characters then yeah it happends all the time.

    In Gantz, multiple characters have died. The main characer has "died" along with numerous other major characters in the story. Of course, they do eventually get revived.

    Although I (kinda) hate to continue mentioning it in every recent post I make, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure fits the bill, and I'm not talking "an almost-protagonist" dies or he's revived or any sort of loop hole. The series is divided into different parts, each with a new protagonist.
