    I bet he saw the debut of Gaim. How many lives will that show claim

    First Kisame, & now the actor himself? So looks like the Weather Dopant would be a different person in a next possible Battride War game

    I saw Gaim. I enjoyed it and I'm still alive. We don't need your hate, especially if you're just going to disrespect the recently deceased.

    Buddy?

    How can you think like that of a show that ONLY HAS 1 EPISODE?! Can't you at least wait 5 episodes to judge it like most people?! And how dare you use a man's death to slander a series that's part of his work! You should be ashamed of yourself!

    @Anon 2 have some respect please..
    I'm okay about your hate on gaim (they're not gonna stop whining anyway) but to make a joke on a deceased person is way too much


  22. Maybe he doesn't mean to hate. But where there's Gen Urobutcher, There always some character die unexpectly.

    And pray for mr.Tomoyuki to rest in peace. We will remember you and your great work.

    God bless his soul.
    R.I.P Weather Dopant-san

  27. Zuou Says:

    He's 50? Wow, I thought he's at 45 at most judging from his act in W. Another huge loss for Japan's virtual entertainment industry.
