Crayon Shin Chan mangaka is found dead
One of the most successful mangaka is confirmed dead when his body was retrieved from hiking place few hours ago. Yoshito Usui started Crayon Shin Chan in 1990 and become one of cultural icon of popular Japanese culture. I kinda enjoyed the comic, never seen the anime though.
It is sad to see him go, which not long after death of Takiro Yamato, author of Kaze no Stigma on 20th July 2009.
Rest in peace.
