The man behind many voices in Japan has been found dead.
Gouri Daisuke, 57, was reportedly found laying lifeless in the streets of Nakano-ku. It is believed that he bled to death because of a large puncture wound on his arm. Further, authorities deem this to be a suicide since he was carrying his last will and testament in his pockets, and a knife was found right beside his corpus. If that were not enough, this man was behind the voice of Tekken’s Heihachi, Bleach’s Dondochakka, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty’s Scott Dolph, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops’ Lt. Cunningham, Ninja Gaiden: Sigma II’s Volf , DragonBall’s Mister Satan, OX King, King Enma, Porunga, (and various other characters in the series), the list goes on and on.
In the end, the prolific voiceover, but at the same time, incredible man, makes us realize we are still human, and bound to mental illness if one does not take the proper procedures to seek help and get better. Otherwise, one will fall to his demons.
Here’s to a person who brought us joy in the form of articulation.
From everyone at GamerSyndrome:
May you rest in peace Mr. Daisuke.
