Gōri-san was a character actor who lent his voice talent to some of my favorite anime, including Gundam, Zeta Gundam, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Samurai Champloo, Slayers and the recent Slayers Evolution-R. I'm sorry to see him go.
The body of voice actor Daisuke Gori was found on a Tokyo street on Sunday. Police believe he committed suicide.
A passer-by found Gori, 57, lying on a street in Nakano Ward, bleeding from his wrists and neck. There were no signs of a struggle, and there was a suicide note in his trouser pocket, say police. A bloodstained knife was also found near the body.
Gori, real name Yoshio Nagahori, was a voice actor and narrator, with notable anime credits including the Kinnikuman and Dragon Ball series.
