    According to Tokyo's Metropolitan Police Department, the Gintama star apparently took his own life purpotedly by hanging.

    The world of Japanese dramas was shocked by terrible news on the 18th of July of popular actor Haruma Miura dying at 30.

    The actor was reportedly found by his staff at his home in Tokyo after he didn't show up at scheduled appointment on Saturday. He was taken to a nearby hospital for emergency medical treatment but failed to regain consciousness and was pronounced dead. Police are investigating the incident as a potential suicide.

    Signed to top Japanese agency Amuse Inc., Miura made his acting debut in the drama "Agri" at the age of 7 in 1997 and achieved huge success, starring in such films and live actions as "Gokusen 3", "Koizora", "Kimi ni Todoke", "Attack on Titan", "Attack on Titan 2: End of the World", and "Gintama" which were his most prominent roles. The talented actor recently announced his upcoming projects and even a new single on his Instagram just a week ago, so many of his admirers are finding this hard to fathom.

    Loved not only by Japanese audiences, but also worldwide, Miura's death has left many fans of J-dramas and live actions in shock and grief. His name began trending worldwide after the news appeared.
