Tekken Voice Actor Passes Away
A bit of sad news hit recently that is sure to hit anime and gaming fans. Last Sunday, Japanese voice actor Daisuke Gouri, 57, was found lying on his stomach with blood dripping from his wrists in the middle of a Nakano, Tokyo street by a passerby, who then notified the police. Authorities discovered a knife under his body as well as a nearby suicide note addressed to his family.
Unless you’re really hardcore into knowing voice actor credits in your anime and games, you might not know Mr. Gouri, but you’ve probably heard his gravelly, old/big man voice in countless titles. He is most known for giving the infamous Heihachi Mishima his voice since Tekken 3, and also was the voice for Bass Armstrong in Dead or Alive. Mr. Gouri has been working as vocal talent since 1973. He will surely be missed… but with the multitude of games and animation that bear his voice, he’ll always be around.
