"Forged in darkness with wheat harvested from Hell's half acre. Baked by Beelzabub; slathered with mayonnaise beaten from the evil eggs of dark chickens, force-fed to dogs by the hands of a one-eyed madman. Cheese boiled from the rancid utters of fanged cows. Layered with 666 separate meats from an animal which has maggots for blood."

the manga version is rele good though... True it is just pure comedy and nothing else but it takes skill to make a life of a 5 year old interesting, especially when the series has been going on for quite a while
But more importantly, I do hope he is ok, though I wouldn't put it past him if it was a prank (as already mentioned by someone)
Man, it'd be terrible if he died so suddenly. His Shin-chan character's an icon in Japan. For Americans, it'd be equivalent to Matt Groening of The Simpsons and Futurama fame suddenly dropping dead. For that reason alone, I hope he's found safely. I've never cared for Crayon Shin-chan, but many MANY people do and this would just break their hearts.
