Heard about this a few days ago, but didn't post here yet, probably because I still can't believe it.

Now I surely won't be able to laugh as much as before while watching Shin-chan, because the death of this genius saddens me so fucking much.

Not to mention that this is the umpteenth person who worked in the anime/manga business who dies during this horrible year. Something's really wrong in this world.

RIP, Usui-sensei.

Never really read the manga, but loved the anime.

May he rest in peace

how did he die?
he fell off the cliff?
or murdered


He fell off he was at the edge taking pictures and he fell off which sucks


That's a horrible, horrible way to go. I don't think it's suicide, but it's never clear that way. I feel really bad for his family/friends. Must be eating them inside. :( RIP, your inappropriate yet funny sense of humor will be missed.
