This just in: Crayon Shin-chan creator found dead
Taken from Canned Dogs.
Crayon Shin-chan creator Usui Yoshito has been missing since the 11th of September after he told his family that he was going mountain hiking in Mount Arafune, and an unidentified body was found on the 19th which has now been confirmed by the police to be the body of Usui Yoshito.
It is believed he had fallen from the Tomoiwa cliff which was near the top of the mountain, his body was found about 120 meters below the cliff. There are no railings around the cliff, but it’s not near the hiking course and there have not been any accidents in that area recently.
Usui goes mountain climbing on a frequent basis apparently.
There’s only one reaction I can safely say about my reaction to this, and that’s HOLY SHIT.
We can only hope he’s in a better place. A much better place.
I think a lot of people are going to miss him too. And the Crayon Shin-chan series.
