Auf Wiedersehen, Usui Yoshito 臼井儀人

Yoshito Usui was born in Shizuoka. He began his career in mangas in the mid-1980s, and was a collaborator of the magazine Action. His most famous serial is 'Crayon Shin-chan'. Initially published in Action from 1987, the first issue of the 'Crayon Shin-chan' comic book sold 25 million copies. The character is also featured in a large merchandise line. Other creations by Usui include 'Mix Connection', 'Scrambled Egg', 'Super Mix' and 'Unbalance Zone'.

Yoshito, 51, went missing on Sept. 11 after telling his family he was planning to climb a mountain in Gunnma prefecture, north of Tokyo, the Yomiuri said in its report. Usui may have fallen from a cliff after being found with wounds to his chest.

RIP man.
