Daisuke Gouri Passes Away (?)

He was the voice of Umigame, Gyuumao, and Mr. Satan.

Not a good few months for guys playing Mr. Satan, it seems.

He was also Bask Om in Zeta Gundam and Hiromi Yamazaki in Patlabor.
Kentai wrote:Son Gokuu is a fascinating character anyway, because he is - at face value, anyway - an idiot savant. The victim of violent head trauma as an infant [...] he's a simple bumpkin with a fair share of brain damage who's natural talents to work out what's wrong compensate for his broad lack of common sense. But he's also a fighter, through and through [...] he fight until he has, in no uncertain terms, beaten his enemy on terms they can both acknowledge. He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

This is going to mean yet another voice replacement for Dragon Ball Kai :roll:


But my deepest sympathies goes out to the family and friends of Daisuke.

It's such a shame, but he did live a nice long life. I'm sure he is at peace now.

Very sad news. Amazing voice actor, whose talents will be missed.

Shit... this is truly a big loss in the world of voice acting. If this is true, may peace be with him.

Saw this on Kotaku a few minutes ago. They linked to an article here, but ANN has updated with another article here.

Very, very sad news indeed. :(

It looks like it's true... No... Mr. Satan can't be dead...
C'mon... It's just a stomach ache right? He'll be back in to fight when it settles right?!...

I just read about this over at Kotaku and had to check in here... I'm very sorry to hear that he passed away at such a young age. I was a fan of his work, specially Mr. Satan.

Such bad taste in jokes.... :P

My favourite voice of his was Gyumao.

Ugh, what the hell. Daisuke was really young, too...

Umigame did always have one of the most unique voices in the series, and Mr. Satan was always a good role. Tricku da!

EDIT: Wait... according to Anime News Network, it's being looked into as a possible suicide. That does make things a little better, I guess, since that means at least one person wanted his death.

I saw this in one of my news feeds after I woke up this morning, and my first thought was, "Oh shit." A few hours later, I still don't know what to say besides that.
