I forgot to mention his narration of the franchise.

gonna be fair, I've never had a preference between him, Brice Armstrong and Doc Morgan, all 3 of them gave of the vibe of a grandfather telling a story to his grandchildren which is why I find their narration so natural, there has never been a single momment where they forced themselfs to hype up the audience, they sounded like they were actually telling a story instead.

rest well Mr Yanami, I well always appreciate the efforts you put to your roles and your narration as well.

R.I.P Joji Yanami.

I can't belive I didn't knew that he died a few months ago until I've figured it out on kanzenshuu, I was surprised to hear that he died recently.

in all fairness, I've always prefered his performance as Lord Kaio (King Kai as many people call the character) to Sean Schemmel's, he has a great sense of warmth and wisdom to his voice that I really like about, not to mention that he could also be great as the character's comedic scenes without coming of as completely obnoxious, it really saddens me that alot of people hate his take because of some reasons because I was never bothered by him in the slightest.

rest well Mr Yanami, I'll never forget your amazing performance as Lord Kaio, both you and Don Brown ( my favorite English VA for the character) did a wonderfull job bringing the character to life.
