We have sadly learned of the death of Ryuji Saikachi, iconic Japanese voice actor. He was 89 & passed on September 29 due to congestive heart failure.
Saikachi voiced a number of enemy characters in tokusatsu, including the very first opponent in Kamen Rider– the Spider Man (no relation).
Other memorable roles performed by Ryuji Saikachi include the Sickle Neck Turtle in Kamen Rider V3, the Medusa in Kamen Rider X, the Mole Beastman in Kamen Rider Amazon and the Scorpion Kikaijin in Kamen Rider Stronger.
Our thoughts are with Ryūji Saikachi’s friends and family in this difficult time.
