Bad news…

19 01 2010
It truly saddens me to have to report this news, but one of the greatest voices of Dragon Ball just passed away. The seiyuu Gouri Daisuke died on 17, with 57 years-old.

Gouri Daisuke, the voice of Umigame and Hercule (Mr. Satan) died this past Saturday. The newspapers report that Gouri was found bleeding from his wrist. Police are investigating the case as a possible suicide. A knife was found near his body.

Words can not express the loss of someone so talented, not only for the Dragon Ball community, but to the world of anime. Daisuke had many roles in Dragon Ball, including Umigame, Gyuumao, Enma Daio, King Cold and Mr. Satan. He returned to reprise the majority of his previous roles in Dragon Ball Kai. Not only had these roles, but also had a number of minor roles in other series. Besides Dragon Ball, he starred in Mobile Suit Gundam, Escaflowne, Trigun, One Piece, Inu Yasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, Samurai Champloo, and the list goes on …

May he rest in peace!

I could not stand Mr Satan in the series but I have to admit I’m generally gutted to hear he has passed, even though he was annoying in the show, the dragon ball series will not be the same with out him, may he rest in peace
