Hiroshi Yamamoto also wrote about his passion for science fiction stories in the afterword, but he also regretted that his mental condition was failing, which meant that he was no longer confident in his capacity to compose such stories, especially books like Project Piano. He wrote about his fascination with science fiction.

During the month of August in the year 2020, Yamamoto tweeted tweets that had hints of suicide. Following the fact that he had been called by emergency personnel in Japan, he subsequently certified that he was safe.

The COVID-19 epidemic had reduced the number of possibilities for Yamamoto to walk outside, which led to his experiencing feelings of melancholy, as revealed in a later post on his account that was prefaced as having been authored by someone other than Yamamoto.

Hiroshi Yamamoto said that he had entertained thoughts of ending his life by suicide; but, after speaking with his wife and daughter, he changed his mind.

Hiroshi Yamamoto also expressed gratitude to his friends and to those who had offered him notes of encouragement.

In the fantasy role-playing game sessions that formed the foundation of the original tale for the Record of Lodoss War series, Yamamoto personally played the famous character Deedlit. Yamamoto was a member of Group SNE, the group of creators that was responsible for developing the franchise.

The science-fiction books The Stories of Ibis and MM9, written by Yamamoto, were released by Viz Media in the years 2010 and the year 2012.

Other works that he has produced include Kyonen wa Ii Toshi ni Naru Darō and Kami wa Chinmoku Sezu.

In 2011 and 2016, he was honored with a Seiun Award.
