Talent agency 81 Produce has some sad news for anime fans, as they announced that veteran seiyuu Yuzuru Fujimoto has passed away due to heart problems. He was 83.

The seiyuu had undergone treatment for his heart disease back in 2016 before finally succumbing and passing away in 10 June 2019.

-- Advertisment --

He made his debut in the old black and white anime, Tetsujin 28-go, as a narrator. Gundam fans are also very familiar with him, as he voiced Degwin Sodo Zabi for the original Mobile Suit Gundam, as well as Professor G in Gundam Wing. He also voiced Jubstacheit von Einzbern in Fate/Zero.

May he rest in peace.
