The creator of Adult Swim(US) or Crayon Shin-chan(Asia), Yoshito Usui died at the age 51 during hiking in the mountains of Gunma prefecture.
Apparently he falls to death and was found dead at the bottom of one of the steep cliffs of Mt. Arafune.
Usui is the creator of Crayon Shin-chan and the anime still aired every weekin Japan and also other region.
Deepest sympathies for Mr Yoshito Usui. I love his work, Shin Chan. It is the best anime with lots sense of humor. Without him, Shin Chan will never be the same again
I didn't know that Adult Swim was Crayon Shin Chan in US. Locally we called it Shin Chan.
