I love Shin-Chan, he is up there with Bart Simpson or South Park Boys.
RIP Ushi Yoshito

While I was never able to get into this show (I found it much too crude to be funny at all), it is sad that something like this happened to someone who did create something that a lot of people did enjoy. Though it's sad this happened to anyone at all, writer or not.

I wish his family and friends the best of luck through this difficult time.

It's always a shame to see any great anime artist pass away. Here's to Shin-Chan's creator.
One cannot truly live life without having a sense of honor.

you know, i think its horrible as well, and i share all of your pain, but in a way its somewhat comical.

now don't get me wrong, i do not gain any sort of happy emotion from the death of anybody, but honestly, how often do you hear about ANYONE falling off of a cliff?

not very.

its almost like a death that a cartoon artist would write.
and thats why i think its a bit comical.
