Daisuke Gōri (郷里 大輔 Gōri Daisuke?, February 8, 1952 – January 17, 2010[1]) was a Japanese voice actor, narrator and actor from Kōtō, Tokyo. Throughout his life, he was attached to TV Talent Center Tokyo, Yoshizawa Theatre School and then Mausu Promotion; he 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 the Dragon Ball series (as King Yemma and Mister Satan), the Gundam series (as Dozle Zabi and Bask Om), Ninja Scroll (as Gemma Himuro), Kinnikuman (as Robin Mask), Patlabor (as Hiromi Yamazaki), Tekken (as Heihachi Mishima), Muppets Party Cruise (as Dr. Bunsen Honeydew in the PS2 Japanese version) and Soulcalibur (as Edge Master)[2] - as well as his distinctive deep, booming voice.

Death[edit]

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 yomenai. Omou yōni shigoto ga dekinai.?) 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 street in Nakano, Tokyo 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 Gomen ne?) 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] His ongoing roles were replaced by other voice actors.
