I hope he is okay, and it's not something as serious as cancer.

I love the episodes with Hiroshi in Shin-chan, and his voice totally makes the character.

I feel bad for Mihara having just started this spin-off series and have something like this happen. For the TV series, Hiroshi not being featured wouldn't be too strange... but the same can't be done for Alien vs Shinnosuke. I suppose they'll be writing him out somehow...

Wow. I hope it doesn't get worse. Come back when you're 110%, Keiji. Nothing less.

Keiji's other notable roles include Ardyn in Final Fantasy XV. Reno in Final Fantasy VII.

While a minor role, he is also voicing a character in Re:Zero (Aldebaran "Al"). For his sake, I hope the character won't make an appearance soon.

It just occurred to me that Rin and Shin-chan's dads have the exact same voice.

I'm hoping this unknown illness isn't serious and that Mr. Fujiwara-san will return when he's 120% ready.

Love his performance from Dark Knight movie dub. His voice fit Joker nicely. Get well soon.

Hope the man makes a healthy and long lasting return. He's an amazing seiyuu with a unique voice like no other.

I hope he recovers well from whatever the problem is and that it's nothing serious or recurring! He's one of my favourite voice actors, I actually cried out "nooo!" in my head when I saw the title of this article.
Wishing for your best health, Fujiwara-san!

He's become one of my favorite voice actors this year with his performances in Gintama, Dagashi Kashi, Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou, and Saiki Kusuo. So funny, and such warmth in his performances. Hope he feels better soon!

Fujiawara-san is one of my favorite Seiyuus. He also voiced Hattori Zenzou in Gintama, and many many more. I really hope he comes back in full health very soon. All the best!
