Yoshito Usui (21 April 1958) born in the Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, was confirm dead on 19 September 2009. He is known as the author of the ever popular manga Crayon Shin-chan. On the 12 of September, Usai’s family reported that the artist went missing and confirm that he was hiking at Mount Arafune. A search and rescue team was sent on the 15 September and the body was found under the Tomoiwa cliff by other hikers.

Loyal fans around the world will remember him as the creator of one of the most entertaining, simple drawing series ever made. His work has been magnificent and send my condolences to the Usai family. We will miss you. It’s not sure whether his work will be continue by others so lets just wait for what the future brings.
