The Hochi Shimbun reports that about 3000 "mourners" attended the fictional funeral for Fist of the North Star's Raoh today. Celebrities and fans came to Tokyo's Shingon Koyasan Tokyo Betsuin despite the evening's near-freezing rain. In his address, Raoh's voice actor Takashi Ukaji said, "In the way you lived, you have touched our hearts and gave us courage." The funeral commemorates the death of the rival to protagonist Kenshirô in April 28's True Saviour Legend Fist of the North Star - The Legend of Raoh: Fierce Fighting Arc movie premiere.
