Daisuke Gōri (郷里 大輔 Gōri Daisuke?) (February 8, 1952 – January 17, 2010[1]) was a Japanese seiyū, narrator and actor from Kōtō, Tokyo. He was formerly attached to Mausu Promotion and was attached to Aoni Production at the time of his death. His real name, as well as his former stage name, was Yoshio Nagahori (長堀 芳夫 Nagahori Yoshio?). He was best known for his roles in Kinnikuman (as Robin Mask), the Dragon Ball series (as Umigame and Mister Satan), the Gundam series (as Dozle Sabi and Bask Om), Patlabor (as Hiromi Yamazaki), Tekken (as Heihachi Mishima), and Soulcalibur (as Edge Master)[2] - as well as his distinctive deep voice.

Death

According to fellow voice actors, Gōri was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus a few years prior to his death and his vision was affected by retinal detachment as a result of the disease. He complained to coworkers, "I can't read the scripts. I can't do my job like I'd like to." (台本が読めない. 思うように仕事ができない. Daihon ga yome nai. Omō yōni shigoto ga deki nai.?) During an Anpanman recording session in late 2009, a depressed-sounding Gōri told his close friend voice actor Kazuhiko Inoue, "I've grown old." [3]

On January 17, 2010 at approximately 3:00 P.M., Gōri was found lying on his stomach with blood dripping from his wrists in the middle of a Nakano, Tokyo street by a passerby, who then notified the police. Authorities from the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's Nakano station discovered a utility knife under his body as well as a suicide note (with the words "I'm sorry" (ごめんね Gomenne?) and "Thank you" (ありがとう Arigatō?) scrawled on it) addressed to his family in his pants pocket. Gōri's death was then ruled a suicide; he was three weeks short of his 58th birthday.[3][4]
