If you watch undubbed anime, you have likely heard his voice, but maybe not from a major character

This is voice actor Kazunari Tanaka (April 8, 1967 - October 10, 2016). A Kung-Fu and Judo-loving guy who was born the same year as these people, and walked hand-in-hand along with them through the Japanese voice acting business.

But why can't anyone outside of his industry remember him? This was because his roles were all...

"Person A," "Student B," "Spear Carrier C" "Old Fisherman D," "Guy Next Door E," "That Mook Who Just Tripped and Landed a Pie on His Boss and Got Beaten as F"...

You got it. His trade was being the Bit Player of voice acting—The Ultimate Everyman.

Sadly he passed away from a brain hemorrhage at age 49.
