Usui Yoshito Definitely Identified...

Police recovered and identified mangaka Usui Yoshito's body Sunday, September 20th, according to a report in the Japan Times Online. As you know, Usui was the cartoonist responsible for the frequently hilarious Crayon Shin-chan manga, which has spun off into TV animation and motion pictures, including the current live-action hit Ballad. Authorities believe Usui accidentally fell to his death while hiking. Very tragic and I want to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family.
