fuck now what are they going to do in super without her?

They have time since the current arc's all about the Tournament of Power and so far the character's been MIA for 20 episodes or so. But still, that is some horrifying news. Yeah I'm at a loss for words, it's so sad. I only recently gained appreciation for the Japanese voices, over a year of watching DB Super subbed and never touching the Japanese voices before. So this does affect me, I think this is my favorite moment of her so far in Super.

which is gonna suck

geez she was 57? she doesn't sound it!

It just makes me think of Masako Nozawa, who's 81 and you hear Goku's Japanese voice and you can never tell that's the voice of an elderly woman. Further on that, fuck, if she passed, see this news just makes me fear other members of that cast will get it. Similar feelings I had when Ronnie James Dio passed, and years later Tony Iommi had a cancer scare and I think Geezer Butler, there's sympathy and sadness for the deceased, fear and concern for the living related to them.

WELL FUCK MY LIFE FRIEZA'S ENGLISH VOICE ACTOR HAS C.O.P.D

Unfortunate news coming from Houston today as Dragon Ball Z voice actor, Christopher Ayres, finds himself facing an irreversible lung disease.

PLEASE SOMEONE SAY A PRAYER

I just read about that, his youcaring fund page is linked on r/dbz and it shows that they went over the goal, which is good.

It doesn't say he will pass, hopefully, that's another voice actor I enjoy.

Theres a lot of tension in the Dragon Ball community due to these recent events, I hope it manages to slowly pass.

How so? I don't really involve myself with the community because I tend to get into impassioned arguments that come off being pointless or damaging.

With this and the whole Chris Ayres thing. Imagine losing both Bulma and Freeza in one fell swoop

Oh I thought you meant some heated debate. All the news brought everything I did to a really hard halt. It also dampens release day of USUM and now I'll go into this week's new episode of Super with my head down, so to speak.
