;___; R.I.P Junpei.

He was a lot of shows such as dragonball series, D.gray (everybody loves That Earl!), Time Bokkan (I think one of Doronjyo's henchmen), MAzinger, etc Mad

Oh wow... I only really recognize Millenium Earl and Phyllo, but...

I really hope they don't decide to try to start the DGM anime up again. No one else can do him justice.

He was also several roles in the Japanese dub of The Wizard of Oz (the new one), as well as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In the Japanese dub of The Simpsons, he was "Grandpa" and he voiced Guru and Porunga in Dragon Ball Z (he was the original Baba, but Mayumi Tanaka kinda ended up taking over that role), as well as the Japanese voice for Yogi Bear and Quick Draw McGraw. He played a lot of iconic roles, and will be missed.

Wow, I'm really impressed that he was able to voice the hat in Dororon Enma-kun just this spring. He did a great job in that as he has in all his other roles. May he rest in piece.

He was main character Perasuke the parrot in the original series, and recurring character Dokurobei (Doronjo's boss) in Yatterman.

He lived a long life which is good cause I can tell he had an amazing one if he's been doing voices for various anime and Japanese dubs of various cartoons.

He'll be missed dearly by us Lupin fans, cause he was a prolific voice actor for various Lupin characters including Mr. X who was the only villian to appear in both the Green & Red Jacket series.

I give my condolences to those who knew him well.
