RIP Mr Goto. Thanks for making a flawed but endearing character in Gowasu.

I have very fond memories of the Future Trunks arc, and one of the reasons for that is Gowasu. He was an amazing character. It's not a surprise that he is often revered as one of the most memorable and entertaining characters in all of Super by far. RIP.
Twisting into something hideous... It's the physical embodiment of what he feels within. He is obsessed. Fixated on the contradictions of Gods and mortals. If mortals have capacity for wisdom, why do they so often fail? If Gods see their actions as wicked, why do they tolerate and forgive? How can Gods and mortals seem so different yet so alike? What is the point of it all? Zamasu seeks beauty. Yet look at his body, distorted by hatred and rage. I wonder... Is that really the result that he craved? A broken, misshapen God alone in the vacant cosmos? How fulfilled will he be then?

Passing away in your 60's is also too young. It's really weird and sad.

Thank god Nozawa is in her 80's, I hope she makes it to 100.

Ugh this is such sad news, RIP Gowasu Sama!

I'm proud of having Gowasu Sama as my gaming ID. Representing Godtubers!

Just as Gowasu had said to Obuni (his last line),

Mr. Goto, you did well.

I'll quote my comment from Behind The Voice Actors:
Pretty sad he's no longer among us. I really liked his Gowasu. It was the perfect contrast to Shinchiro Miki's Zamasu. It's a shame we will not able to hear him again. I hope he finally rests in peace after the hard time he has gone through dealing with that disease...
