A Russian teenager has leapt to his death after he found out his favourite character, Naruto's Uchiha Itachi has died.


The teenager, 14 year old Leonid Hmelev was reported to have jumped 100ft of an apartment building in Chaikovsky, Russia.
He went missing for two days before his body was found. His parents were already worried beforehand as he posted a goodbye post of sort on social media sites, as well as his delusions.

'I always told him he spent too much time watching the TV – he didn't know what was reality and what was fiction anymore.'

Hardcore anime and manga fans are no stranger to this delusion or more widely known in Japan as the Chuunibyou symptom which could lead to even proclaiming that an anime character is his “wife” or cheap celebrex online “husband” but most usually outgrew this.
