Rest in peace.

Nice to see someone who has lived a full life and died by old age pretty much. You can't die in a better way than that :)

We didn't get to see much of Sengoku, but as far as i remember i liked his voice during the battle at Marineford. Wonder who will replace him now.

When i first read "One Piece voice actor" i was so afraid that it would be one from the main cast T w T
I feel bad for being relieved.

BUT! He did a good job as Sengoku.
Rest in peace.

Same. Indeed, Rest in Peace.
