Kaneto Shiozawa was once the go-to guy for soft-spoken Bishōnen
roles. If you notice any character that was voiced by him, chances are they might have a sudden change in composure at times
. Yep, he can also flip his voice into crazy mode on a whim.
Sadly, in 2000 his career was cut short when he fell down the stairs in his home
and died hours later of a severe concussion.
Reportedly, Shiozawa was a good friend of Daisuke Ishiwatari
, the creator of Guilty Gear
. Out of respect for his passing, Ishiwatari decided to keep his character of Zato in later games, but as the parasite Eddie which had now taken control of Zato's body.
