According to NNN breaking news, Gunma Prefecture Police identified the body found in Arafune mountain as Usui Yoshito, the manga author of Crayon Shin-chan. He was found at the foot of a cliff called Tomoiwa (Picture).
Usui has already handed the manuscripts of Crayon Shin-chan manga corresponding to the serialization until the end of this year.

Futabasha said at the press conference that the last picture stored in Usui's camera was a scenery looking down from the top of the cliff, from which he fell. They said it was probably an accident.
I can't believe that. I thought for sure he just went away for some rest/inspiration and would come back without any trouble. Very upsetting. I'm not much of a Shin-chan fan but I know how popular that series is in Japan.
