Heihachi voice actor is a possible suicide

Monday, 18th January 2010 19:44 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Gouri Daisuke, the voice of Tekken’s Heihachi, has died aged 57.

This sounds a bit messy, as well as sad. He was found dead on the street in Nanako, Japan, yesterday, having bled to death from a wound to his arm.

Authorities are treating the death as a suicide. A knife and a will were found nearby.

    Sad… RIP. The suicide rate is amazingly high in nippon. What is up in the land of the rising sun that is driving so many to end it all?

    Its sort of Japanese culture to commit suicide when really unhappy and depressed. It probably dates back to the days when it was seen as an honnor to commit seppuku for pretty much anything that went wrong or in sign of protest.

    No faith or religion? 96% of Japanese are Shinto and Buddhist.

    I think im Most Religions Committing Suicide is a sin and lead you straight to Hell so one person does that means he has no faith in his heart

    What on Earth drives a guy who’s made it through 57 years to suicide, I wonder?

    woulda been so much more ironic if it were the voice actor for Yoshimitsu.

    Irony a person with the name Dark prince spewing Religious nonsense.

    Fun fact:

    Among the most common faith groups in the U.S., Protestants have the highest suicide rate; Roman Catholics are next; Jews have the lowest rate.

    Followers of religions that strongly prohibit suicide, like Christianity and Islam, have a higher suicide rate than those religions which have no strong prohibition (e.g. Buddhism and Hinduism.)”
