Weapon: Neptune Sword
Beloved characters become like family to us, and it always a loss felt in the community when an individual behind those characters moves on. Takeshi Aono was 76 years old. He had a very successful voice acting career that included the voice of the monstrous Deathsaurus! His talents can be heard in the form of Kami-Sama and King Piccolo in Dragon Ball, as well as Fist of the North Star , Space Battleship Yamato and among many other roles, he dubbed the role of Christopher Lloyd's Doc character in the Back to the Future films and Joe Pesci's films in their Japanese releases.

Takeshi died as a result of complications following a stroke on Monday, April 9. He will be missed.

We truly have lost a legend. R.I.P. Aono-sama.
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.
