I don't think I can look into this any longer, despite being so curious.

Blog entries break my heart.

Minaguchi Yuko is pretty effin' devasted, probably to the point that she might not want to play Videl (Dragonball). Or maybe she's saying that out of grief and it's temporary ("kinda don't want to"/might), or "will not play her". I can't read what she said.

Furukawa Toshio and Inoue Kazuhiko also expressed their feelings.

Also, the Aoni Production main site updated and apparently said Gouri died of heart failure....huh? during the suicide? (性心不全)

Oh, that's very sad. Rest in peace. Looks like 2010 is going to be full of deaths in the anime industry, just like 2009...

Wait, are you saying that a voice actor from the anime industry who commits suicide is common in Japan?

What's going on over there?!

Rest In peace...

I was in Nakano the other day too. Looking at anime merch in the Broadway shopping mall.

This is sad news. It looks very much like suicide since he had prepared his last will and testament too.

Let's just hope they don't make an in-anime joke about the voice change...

This is sad, I liked a few characters he voiced.

Just been to Pixiv. There has been an influx of fanart of characters that Gouri-san had voiced ):

In addition to Dolze Zabi of Mobile Suit Gundam, he also voiced Om Bask for Zeta Gundam (both roles which need to be added on the MAL page).

He sure has a lot of notable voices, in anime and in games. It's a real shame to see such prolific person going. Rest in peace Daisuke Gouri.

This. His deep-rough voice was just perfect for Jinbei and many of his other roles. RIP ;_;

I've been distraught since this morning, truthfully....

Gouri I love you and R.I.P.

It's so sad to hear how people are driven to these resorts. A loss of talent too young. R.I.P
