Seiyuu Nobuyuki Furuta has died on Tuesday night from a ruptured aneurysm. He was 59 years old. The funeral will be held on Sunday morning on September 3 by his wife, as well as fellow seiyuu and president of Kenyuu Office Kenyuu Horiuchi.

Furuta voiced supporting characters such as Sakyou from Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho, Kudou from Touch, and more. He also voiced the Japanese dub of Matt Parkman from the American television drama Heroes and was a mixed martial arts announcer with Fighting Network Rings.

man this makes me sad.. first time heard his voice as Pain and loved his voice since, excellent seiyuu
Actually, Pain's seiyuu (Kenyuu Horiuchi) is not the one who has died, he is the one who will held his funeral.

I'm not familiar with him as a seiyuu, but this is, indeed, sad. Rest in peace, Furuta-san. TT_TT

I'm currently watching Yuu Yuu Hakusho, so when I get to the part where his character is introduced I'll think of him. RIP.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.
