Daisuke Gouri was found by a passerby to be lying motionless on a road in Hommachi, Nakano Ward (中野区本町) at 3PM on January 17th. Suicide as the cause of death is highly possible as there was no sign of struggle, and there was a posthumous writing in his trousers pocket. A knife with blood was found closeby as well.
Daisuke Gouri was 57 years old.
Apart from Dozle Zabi and Om Bask, I also enjoyed Daisuke Gouri's role as the big-sized but gentle Hiromi Yamazaki in "Patlabor" and the timid rugby team captain Gouda-kun in "Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu". Fans of "Kinnikuman" will remember him well as Robin Mask.
Rest in peace, Mr. Daisuke Gouri.
