The Tokyo Shimbun paper reports that Daisuke Gouri, the voice actor best known for playing Robin Mask in the Kinnikuman television anime series as well as Umigame and Mr. Satan in the Dragon Ball franchise, has passed away in Tokyo on Sunday. He was 57.

The newspaper reports that Gouri was discovered, with blood dripping from his arm, by a passerby on a street in Nakano ward. Police officers at Nakano station are investigating his death as a possible suicide. According to the authorities, Gouri apparently collapsed face-down onto the street at about 3:00 p.m. The newspaper adds that a knife or similar object was found nearby along with a last will.

It's also been noted that his wrists had been slashed, and when the body was moved, they found a bloody knife underneath him.

A sad day indeed.

Sad stuff. Never was a big fan of Dragon Ball in the Japanese track, but it's sad to hear how he went. I'm telling you, it's so strange that so many anime/manga people are dying lately.

Now, we have an arising conspiracy theory on hold. Murder or suicide?

There's no conspiracy. Everything points to suicide. Slashed wrists, knife under the body, suicide note, etc.

Aww Shucks. That's a pretty big dissapointment. Also, since Batman had a voice on this thread, its only right that superman does too. He doesn't have much to say right now on it because of how he feels, but give him time. Let him ponder this for some time.
