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.

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.
haha I'm tunnel visioning, Horiuchi's name being linked instead of Furuta's got me
