Body under the cliff turned out to be "Crayon Shinchan" author : Social : YOMIURI ONLINE
Author Usui told his family he's "going on a day-trip climbing Mt. Arafuneyama, Gunma"on Sept. 11, and left his home in Kasugabe. Since he hadn't come back by Sept. 12, his family requested the Saitama prefectural police to search for him, in fear of his distress.
Joint search with Gunma and Nagano prefectural police was made and they found a male body on Sept. 19 in Mt. Arafuneyama.

Started from summer 1990, Crayon Shinchan is surely the long-running manga in the industry. Anime adaption from 1992 has been also favored, although some "thoughtful" parents and teachers blamed the comic for children's misbehaviours. Movie adaption "Crayon Shinchan Arashi wo Yobu Appare! Sengoku Daigassen(lit. Crayon Shinchan: Hurrah for Storm! Great Feudal War)" re-adapted as a live action movie "BALLAD - a nameless lovesong". Another great loss to the manga culture.
