Goro Naya, the 80-year-old voice actor of the spaceship Yamato's Captain Jūzō Okita, said, "He had an unconventional way as a producer and usually had something fascinating to talk about. To meet his fate by falling off the research vessel Yamato …. I only pray for his happiness in the next world."
Youko Asagami, the 58-year-old voice actress of Yamato heroine Yuki Mori, said, "Nishizaki was one of the people who chose me to become 'Yuki.' I pray that he found peaceful rest. I pray that he will watch over and help those who chase dreams."
Leiji Matsumoto, the 72-year-old manga and anime creator who settled a long-running dispute over Yamato's copyrights with Nishizaki in 2003, told the Sports Nippon newspaper, "I don't know the details, so I'm not ready to respond. Because we're dealing with a person's passing, please forgive me for not commenting yet."
