Usui Yoshito Update

The Japan Times Online reports a body found by a climber on Mount Arafune may be that of missing Crayon Shin-chan mangaka Usui Yoshito. The 51-year-old comic creator has been missing since September 11th, when he told his family he was going hiking in the mountains in Gunma prefecture. Obviously, we're still hoping for the best, but realistically over the course of the week, this kind of bad news has seemed more and more likely. Very sad indeed.
