It has come to my attention that I bring you tragic news for the anime community. Yesterday, it was reported online that anime voice actor Chris Ayres has passed away due to fighting years with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). It was first announced by his wife Krystal LaPorte in which she revealed the news on Twitter. He was only 56 of age.

He voiced Frieza starting from 2009 to all the way to 2019, from Dragon Ball Z Kai to all the way to the movie Dragon Ball Super Broly. According to Bounding Into Comics, he also voiced other anime characters in different anime such as Kei Kurano in Gantz and Ushio in Saint Seiya.

  1. I was surprised that before he died, he was smoking a lot as how Leonard Nimoy did. Voice actors should never get into that as well as alcohol intoxication. Otherwise, they’d end up dead too soon like for what happened to Kirby Morrow and Chadwick Boseman.
