R.I.P. Usui Yoshito

No comments :

The world of anime has lost two veteran figures this week. The body of a a man, believed to be manga-ka Usui Yoshito (51), was found in the mountains bordering Gunma and Nagano Prefectures by a climber on Saturday morning. The body was found at the foot of a cliff on Arafuneyama mountain, where Usui said he was headed when he was last seen a week ago. Usui is the creator of the popular manga and anime "Crayon Shinchan" (image right). The manga first appeared in 1990 and the anime has been shown weekly on TV Asahi since 1992. There has also been a big-screen version every spring during that time, indicating the continuing commercial success of the franchise. But while popular with kids, the character has always been one that parents hope they won't emulate and the show has long ranked highly among those that parents won't let their kids watch.

i used to read shin chan evryday, and i would laugh till my tears drop and stomach cramped. sigh. what a great lost to the world of comical manga. sigh.

taipau!
