TRSI is saddened to report that Michael Alben, the voice director for
the dubbed Record of Lodoss War and other English-language anime
adaptations, recently passed away.

"It's a shock. It hits home. The engineer and I probably were the last
two people to see him alive," Jeff Thompson, TRSI's chief designer and
production manager said.

The day after a recording session, Alben was driving to work, stopped at a service station and "just died," according to Thompson, who was
working with Alben on an upcoming TRSI title.

Alben is survived by a wife and three children. All of us at TRSI mourn Michael's passing.

Anime News Network offers our condolences to Michael's family, as well as to his friends and co-workers during this difficult period.
