His role as the narrator of Machikado Mazoku (The Demon Girl Next Door) brought me a lot of joy. For that I thank him.

Rest in peace.

Barry in FMA, Diamante in One Piece, Gengetsu Hozuki (also known as Trollkage among fans) in Naruto, Master in Gabriel DropOut.

He actually had a rather recognizable voice, rest in peace.

He was also the official Japanese dub voice of Wile E. Coyote, as well as being the regular male narrator of many Looney Tunes shorts, as well as being Zazu in The Lion King.

Really liked his minor character role as the Shinigami Armonia Jastin in Death Note.

Rest in peace, Hideyuki Umezu.

Goodbye, Umezu-san. For your roles in Naruto (Amachi and Gengetsu), Death Note (Justin the Jewel Skeleton), One Piece (Diamante), and Broken Blade (Elekt), thank you for making an impression. Only sorry you had to leave so soon. RIP

RIP

Thank you for all the work your brought us.

Side note: Is it it just me or have their been too many people in the industry dying exactly at 68 this year? its kind of creeping me out.

My condolences to his family and loved ones.
I was discussing Demon Girl Next Door a few days ago, and we were hoping for a possible third season down the line. It wouldn't be the same without him as the narrator.
