Shin Chan

It was confirmed that the body found on Mt. Arafune was that of Shin-chan creator Yoshito Usui. Last Friday he went mountain climbing with the intent of returning home later that day; he didn't come home. He fell to his death.

I loved watching "Shin Chan" as a kid in Japan and later watched its airings on Adult Swim. All I can say is, what a terrible way to go.

Thanks, Yoshito-san.

That's heartbreaking. He was a man with a great creative spirit and hilarious sense of humor. He will be missed. I feel terrible for his family ;_;
