RIP Yamaji / Goku's husband. :(


Another famous seiyuu dying in 2014! FUCK! :c

Yamamoto's voice was epic, he did a great work! Genryuusai's voice will never be the same :c

After the death (RIP) of Ichirou Nagai (Netero). I was really hoping for Masaaki Tsukada (Yamamoto) to replace him. How sad and unfortunate. Rest in peace...
