Creator: Daisuke Gōri

Needed a Big Guy or a Badass Grandpa? This seiyuu was your man. Daisuke Gōri was one of the more veteran seiyuu, and has certainly built up quite a rep. He usually voiced Large And In Charge characters but could also do other roles just fine.

Unfortunately, on January 17, 2010, three weeks shy of his 58th birthday, he was witnessed collapsing dead on a Nagano sidewalk with a knife, suicide note and last will on his person, and blood dripping from his wrist. Diabetes had been eating away at his vision, and he'd mentioned to coworkers he had difficulties reading his lines. In a bout of depression, he'd recently told close friend Kazuhiko Inoue "I've grown old". Rest in peace, Mr. Gōri.

For his Western equivalent in voice acting (still alive, BTW), see Kevin Michael Richardson.
