Remembering Tomoyuki Dan, Weather Dopant


 Though we've had a lot of good news in the last couple days unfortunately we have some bad news. Tomoyuki Dan, most famously known to tokusatsu fans for his role as the Weather Dopant/Shinkuro Isaka on Kamen Rider W, has passed away from an aortic dissection. He passed away in his home on the evening of October 10th, he was 50 years old.

Fans may also recognize Tomoyuki for his work voicing over Christian Bale's Batman character in the Japanese releases of the Dark Knight Trilogy, or for his roles in such anime as Victory Gundam, Naruto Shipuuden, or Ghost in The Shell, as well as his long list of other anime voice acting credits. As with any toku alum he will be missed.
