Goodbye, Crayon Shin-chan's Creator

I'm late to know this sad news actually.

Regrettably, it's confirmed that the body found at the bottom of the cliff where Yoshito Usui, "Crayon Shin-chan"'s creator went missing since September 11th does belong to the late artist.

I'm not really a fan of Crayon Shin-chan, but I find the story very enjoyable nonetheless. Light and funny, with some heart warming moments inserted occasionally in the story, reading or watching "Crayon Shin-chan" is always a great way to relax the mind for me.

Then again, nobody could poke fun at the materialism of adults from a child's point of view as sarcastically as Yoshito Usui-sensei, through Shin-chan that is.

We mourn the lost of a great talent in this world.
