Wow, a 77 year old voice actor. I always wondered what kind of people voiced old characters on animes, and it seems that he was one of them. He must have lived a wonderful life. Rest in peace

Probably not. There has to have been someone unreported out there.

Unfortunately yes. There have been about 50,000+ people that were killed by an earthquake in Haiti.
