We have sadly been informed of the death of a tokusatsu voice veteran.
Voice actor Hiroshi Masuoka passed away on March 21 2020 due to rectal cancer. Masuoka performed a number of villain roles in tokusatsu but may be best known as the narrator for Hyakuju Sentai GaoRanger (where he also performed the supporting role of GaoGod).
Outside of toku, Masuoka was a prominent voice in the anime world- he may be most recognizable as the second voice of Master Roshi in DragonBall related projects.
Our thoughts are with Hiroshi Masuokas’ family & friends in this difficult time.
