I’m devastated. I loved his voice. He voiced many of my favourite characters such as: Zenzou, Leorio, Maes Hughes, Ladd and Byakuya.

RIP. You will be missed by many Crying or Very sad

I'm in shock, 55 is a young age to die and he was one of my favorite VA and he voiced some of my favorite characters.

RIP

Well crap, that's bad news. He had one of those recognisable voices and was in so many good roles, he'll definitely be missed.

Well, damn. Knowing the announced Utawarerumono: Futari no Hakuoro/Mask of Truth anime series now will be without the Fujiwara's voice is hitting right in the heart.

RIP and the big condolences to his family.

Another character that Mr. Fujiwara voiced, that is missing from the list, is the Mage from Miracle Lake in Log Horizon. His unique, gruff big bro voice will be missed.

I was just watching Reno's intro scene in FF7R... it's a bit surreal to learn the actor I was just listening to is no longer with us. I pray for him and his loved ones during this already hard time.

Oh my god, he was one of my favorite voice actors. It's so sad that he passed away. May he rest in piece.

Keiji Fujiwara was always one of those seiyuu I loved to hear in any show I watched, and I know he'd been struggling with illness/cancer/whatever else for a while now, but 55 is still way too young.

I'm having trouble finding the words for this right now, but he will be sorely missed.

Damn it all... Cancer is so, so evil.

Oh man, that is so sad to hear. He's always been a joy to hear in every role he's portrayed.
