    The true World's Strongest Man has passed away.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Mr. Arimoto has voiced a multitude of characters in other series as well, such as Bleach, Kill La Kill, the Gundam franchise, and many more. However, we best know him for playing the character of the emperor of the sea, the pirate known to have fought the Pirate King himself on so many occasions, a prestigious man that wished for a family above all else - Whitebeard, from One Piece.

    On the date of February 1st 2019, he passed away from this world, after having fought with esophageal cancer for a year, according to his family. He was 78 years old at the time of death. Arimoto's relatives told the newspaper he had been suffering from esophageal cancer for a year. A funeral was prepared by his close relatives and held earlier this month. A farewell event will be held at a later date. Sources: ScotchImformer | moetron | ANN (more information to be added.)

    Let us show our gratitude through our wishes, to the man who amazed us all with his unique, one-of-a-kind performance as Edward Newgate, the untoppled, even in death, legendary pirate. We will never forget you and the impact you've made on us will echo forever. Rest in Peace.



    One Piece DOES EXIST!!

    May you rest in peace one of the best senior VA in the industry.

    That moment when whitebeard declared to the world that one piece does indeed exist is pretty chilling, i can't imagine another VA will be able to pull that off as amazing as him.
