Anime News Network has just reported some very sad news. Long time Japanese seiyū (voice actor) Daisuke Gōri just passed away at age 57 on January 17, 2010. He was found on a street in the Nakano Ward in Tokyo with blood dripping from his wrist, as well as a knife under him and a last will nearby. Police investigating his death concluded that it was suicide.

Gōri-san was best known for his roles of Robin Mask in Kinnikuman, Mr. Satan and Umigame in the Dragon Ball series, Dozle Zabi in Mobile Suit Gundam, and many many more roles, anime and non-anime (foreign dubs, video games, etc.).

Specifically, his roles in the Transformers series include:
* Transformers: Super-God Masterforce - Dauros, S. Pakinper (guest character, ep. 24)
* Transformers: Victory - Gōryū, Dinoking
* Transforerms: Zone - Violen Jiger, Dinosaurer (Trypticon)
* Transformers: Revenge (ROTF dub) - Soundwave, Seven Primes

Rest in piece, Gōri-san. You and your voice shall not be forgotten.

There! Is that better wording for you?!

Honestly, guys! If all you can say are snarky and rude comments, then don't bother commenting at all.

Show a little respect. The guy just passed away, for crying out loud.

May he rest in piece. That's all. (No sarcasm, no rudeness.)
