    In a saddening turn of events, Unsho Ishizuka, the voice of Professor Oak from Pokémon, Joseph Joestar from JoJo's Bizzare Adventure, and Mr. Satan from Dragon Ball has passed away at age 68 after a battle with esophageal cancer. :cry:

    I hate cancer. It keeps taking important people from us.

    He actually provided the voice of a lot of characters

    Chances are if you watch anime subbed, you've most likely heard him at some point in your life.
    May his soul rest and his legacy live on.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    It also takes away a lot of people I dislike, just not fast enough.

    Prof. Oak never did me wrong.

    He was also the voice of Joseph Joestar from JJBA and Jet Black from Cowboy Bebop among a bunch of other shows. We lost a legendary VA today.

    I know you're trying to be funny, but under these circumstances this is honestly very disrespectful to say.

    I'd be inclined to put a "Pokémon is already dead aswell-" line here,

    then again, he did some great work. RIP.


    Well.. the #1 Factor for lil "C" is age.
    So no wonder...

    But Iwata seemed to have gone to soon.
    (he truly was waaay too stressed out, having to shoulder so much. poor chap)

    Cancer takes so many lives each year. It's especially sad when it's a person that were somehow part of your life.

    Here's a prime example of an unfunny person trying to get some cheap laugh by making bad jokes on a death. Go away.
