According to a blog post by the theater troupe Seinenza, Dan Tomoyuki, who is best known for voicing Asher Chronicle in MS Victory Gundam and Hoshigaki Kisame in Naruto, passed away on October 10th at the age of 50 due to a relapse of aortic dissection. He is survived by his wife and son. Dan Tomoyuki started acting in TV dramas in the '80s and undertook a broad range of activities ranging from acting on stage to voice acting for western movies and games. He made debut as a seiyuu in Victory Gundam and followed up with voicing various supporting roles until this year. His last work in anime is Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou, in which he played Honda Koujirou, a company president fallen on hard times.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Way too young to die... May he rest in peace, and my heartfelt condolences to his family.

RIP. He did a good job as Kisame, and he even voiced Bruce Wayne in the Japanese dub for The Dark Knight.

He'll be missed.

Well that is sad. Glad I saw his last performance as Honda in Genei even though it was a sad role to play as his final one. Too young, too bad.
