I don't read moon did his VA die
HxH TV was cancelled.
Wait, HxH is cancelled?
>dead voice actor
Yes, his VA died. Nagai Ichiro.
Can we get some confirmation
This is legit. If by confirmation you mean animenewsnetwork they're slower than Japanese sources.
>look up his roles
>every single crochety but powerful old dude in anime
>Slinky from toy story
Confirmation of what, though
At least he lived to be +80. Can't complain about that. ;_;
>Forever waiting new chapter
You best be joking.
Is it terrible that my first thought was, his character's going to die soon anyway?
>no death listed on wiki
I'll wait until it's on there to believe it.
You gotta be joking. I was actually just thinking about this guys age earlier when re-watching an early hunter exam episode with Netero and comparing it with the latest arc Netero. Fucking hell.

This makes me sad. He did really great work, Netero was just the tip of the iceberg. I don't care if the HxH is delayed because of it. Ichiro's body of work was immense.

He finished the Neetero voice acting?
Why the fuck did you have to die cunt, I'm tired enough as it is waiting for fucking togashi's hiatus's, now you come along and die and the animes gonna be fucking post poned. Good fucking job mate, should've stayed alive for a couple more weeks till your character died, then no one would've cared.
Yes, he finished.
Who cares, then
Still awesome acting, so true to his character
The fight isn't that far away, how long before the episode do VA records their lines anayway?
>Madhouse will have to rush and find another voice actor to suit Netero's role.
They managed to do it for the coach in Ippo, they'll be able to do it here.
You're an awful person. You aren't even paying for the entertainment you're receiving, the least you can do is respect a man who devoted his career to pleasing people - even fat, weak-chinned faggots like you who do not even throw him a penny.
>Who cares, then
>Karin is dead
WHY DIDN'T YOU TAKE A SENZU BEAN?!
I pay for 2 crunchyroll memberships cunt, I think I'm more than entitled to be considered his fucking employer. He's a fucking gook anyway, they don't get paid shit, he should be happy I'm paying for his noddles and shit because I'm sure as hell none of you guys do.
You realize the off chance Moot comes across your post and happens to like this VA; you go the way of the dodo... You know that right?
>I pay for 2 crunchyroll memberships
What a faggot.
How do you know that?
What episode of any anime are you gonna watch in his honor?
Random 79 Gundam episode to hear his narration.
According to this, he was found in a bathtub in a hotel in Hiroshima. He was sent to the hospital, but was pronounced dead later. He was 82 years old. His cause of death is still being determined.
Why are Australians such terrible posters?
And 2 CR subs is nothing compared to what buyfags spend.
>Netero's VA dies
>not that long before his character dies in the anime
Wonder how long in advance they recorded his lines.
>I pay for 2 crunchyroll memberships
Apparently, he did voice work for Nichijou. I already have that downloaded but might watch Monster next.
hah get fucked cunts, you're pussys just like moot
I hope he died taking a nap in a warm tub. That would be a nice way to go.
You realize that paying to crunchyroll doesn't shit fot japan, right?
YOU CANT SMILE AGAIN
Can I still try?
It's okay, we still have Beyond Netero to cover him, right /a/?
Fight me down at Flinders Street cunt
Unless it was a heart attack. That's one of the most frightening things when you realize what's happening. And he probably didn't die in his sleep. Who makes a habit of sleeping in tubs at that age?
Either you're an underage faggot or a bad troll.
2:00 tomorrow (PM if your inbred, centrelink rat ass didn't know), meet up at Hosier Lane you frenulum caresser
> I don't care if the HxH is delayed because of it.
Me neither, it'll just give Togashi more time to catch up, right?
alright cunt, how will we identify each other
Both of you have a turd instead of a head.
That's pretty low, anon. Respect the dead.
So we should respect the HXH manga?
Yep, all 339 chapters of it.
I whish there was more to respect, then.
>Netero's best moment about to come in the anime, right before his death as well
>his VA actually dies
Use your amazing voice in heaven, badass old man. ;_;
Why they don't change the op.
And IIIIIIIaaaaaiiiiiiiii willl alllllwwaaaaayyyys loooooveee yooooouuuuiiiiieeeeuuuu
Was he supposed to be in the third HxH movie?
The film is all good. I think it first came out in December some time for cinemas in Japan.
I knew having Netero's final battle animated was too good to be true.
His voice will never be topped.
>January 27, 2014
I don't think any of those had such terrible timing as this one.
Pre-recorded Sazae-san 'til Feb 9. Guess it'd be the same for HxH.
When you die in the anime, you die for real.
Still not enough to cover his last battle, I guess
Netero dies 28 chapters from now. That's at least 10 episodes away.
Is his original actor alive?
my fay was ruined ;-;
He was an inspiration to all us perverts around the world.
I'm genuinely sad. I don't even know what to say.
>Nekota and Kamogawa's VAs are dead
If they didn't already record the flashback arc stuff in Ippo and the Netero fight in HxH it's gonna be depressing. It'll also be depressing when Netero dies.
It's sad that he died and all. He was a really cool VA.
But holy fucking shit. HxH is doomed and actually cursed. It will never be finished. I don't think we will ever see a proper ending, not even a madhouse original.
Who gives a shit about Ippo's anime?
After a brief appearance in chapter 271 where he doesn't talk, I don't think Netero appears again until chapter 287. That's at least 6 episodes from now. So unless they had recorded all of the battle scenes already, I think the next time we hear Netero, it'll be with a different replacement voice actor.
S-Surely they'll find someone with a similar voice?
Who am I kidding, no one can replace him ;_;
It's really unfortunate, because had Ichirou Nagai finished recording all of Netero's lines, it would have been a magnificent capstone to his long and storied career. As it stands now, he died a month or two too soon.
Holy shit I would have cried if that happened. Especially due to how Netero get's sent off.
Now he killed Netero in 2 dimensions.
Fear the king.
>Happosai is dead
God fucking dammit ;_;
Here's a last grope in your name, master.
>inb4 the kings VA dies too
Mr. Nagai was active doing great work until the very end. That's a good way to go.
can some one make a colage with all his characters?
>Not just replacing him with any old fart VA that nobody but some anal /a/nons and some nips would even know about anyhow.
Good call Nippon
Careful with that, I almost cut myself with that post.
>that's what they want you to believe
Seriously though I like HxH but recently it's become more of a manga in motion type affair. Every little detail is excrutiatingly explained in slow motion. Sometimes multiple times at the beginning of the show and just after an ad break. This show has terrible pacing and falls foul of the narration plague.
Unless you've got ADHD, the narration and pacing have been magnificent so far. Do you realise how hard it is to pull off something like this?
So his last words as Netero is going to be a mumbled response to the king's invitation to change location?
>He couldn't shake the feeling that the first move had been taken away from him.
im gonna be honest, before i read the article, i thought that togashi had died. in a way that would be a sorta good thing, because im confident hed hand HxH down to someone who actually has time to finish it.
They have to get a replacement soon or else anime will be hiatus too. This is the HxH curse.
>Climax of Chimera-Ant arc coming
>VA literally dies for the sake of anime
Wow that's terrible. His Netero was pretty excellent.
>Kingdom Hearts (Philoctetes)
Micky's English VA died too. I think Coded was his last preformance. ;_; Miniature Rose scene will feel wrong now that there's someone new doing his role. Sort of like how KH fans were taken aback by Mickey's change in pitch.
I'm hoping it was due to the nap. Though a heart attack might be easier to spot. I've been researching death and how people determine causes ect, so at his age dying in a comfy sleep is possible.
I don't even know how to feel. Still a bit down about it though.
That seems like such a waste. He only had couple of episodes to go anyway. I wonder if a "silent film" approach with the dialogue written out would work?
Based old man ;_;
Yeah I understand why since so much happens in a split second of action. It just bothers me sometimes for a 'animation'.
I bet he got a heart attack when he realised that Pitou was a male.
That would be a nice tribute, and something that someone like Anno might do and do well, but here, it seems unlikely. Even with all its rule-breaking, HxH is still a battle shounen at its core.
They will make it the narrators job to explain it all.
>Micky's English VA died too. I think Coded was his last preformance. ;_;
Wayne Allwine voiced Mickey and was married to the current voice of Minnie. He died in 2009 from diabetes.
>Netero died on the way to his home planet.
Step up, Peggy. You can do it.
I hope he is easily-replaced and his death has no impact on the anime.
>That's... kinda cold
Well shit. This whole thing is pretty ironic.
>you should care about every single person's death
>inb4 you call me edgy
I mean, have you seen all the complaints about Kamogawa's new voice in Ippo? If Netero's new voice has an ounce less gravitas, we're going to hear about it.
Is it possible that the rest of his scenes may have been already recorded?
It's what Netero would've wanted us to do.
It honors his memory.
Well. That's just saddening.
>mfw I was listening to legend of the martial artist earlier
Gonna loop it all day in his honor now.
I'm going to go with highly unlikely.
>He died in 2009 from diabetes.
Like a true american
I've seen more complaints about the new commentator's voice than Kamogawa's voice.
What about the old guy in Bleach, Masaaki Tsukada?
Wouldn't his voice work?
Assuming he's still voice acting.
Unlikely. Voice recording is done after the animation is done (VA sync to the mouths, not the other way around), so for him to have already recorded everything Madhouse needed to be way ahead on the episode's production, say at least 2 month's worth of episodes. Netero still has some lines after that.
How can you fucking stand that song, holy shit.
>VA sync to the mouths, not the other way around
Is this true? Why is japan so retarded?
The manga was just that slow paced in that segment. It even had a timer in one point to show how fast shit was happening
Seems easier than tweaking the animation to match the VA's voice.
It's not a bad song itself, it's just how many times it's been used. The soundtrack isn't meant to be really catchy (Or so I assume from the style) so repetitiveness doesn't work in it's favor.
Does he really say that much between now and his death?
I honestly cannot remember anything aside from him slapping the king around and his death, only other thing I remember is something along the lines of "Next I'll take your left arm" which is said by the king.
Because it's actually much fucking easier for production. Why do you think Japan always has been known for its shitty mouth flaps? This very reason.
Don't forget his line where he says something along the lines of don't underestimate humanity's malice
Is the 90's Netero still alive?
Please shut the fuck up if you don't know what you are talking about. This is only true for dubs.
you make me too butmad
>>101026206 for this fag >>101026133
Voice Recording falls into post-production, it's the time where all voice and sound is added. Do you believe animations actually make the effort of syncing the animation to the voices?
Netero's son was going to be voiced by him too.
This is terrible news he was a great VA I will miss him.
The anime won't go that far.
Not for now no, but we had to be hopeful the hiatus would end and the anime would then pick up on the next arc.
Official thread theme.
>tfw Netero's VA will never say this
Do you not understand how animation works?
He will already be in his ;_;
>I have no idea what I'm talking about.
Nice one m8
What's more likely to finish first, HxH or Hajime no Ippo
Ippo, because you have to actually work on something in order finish it.
>shafting /m/ as usual
/a/'s closemindedness at work once again.
Is it anything like this >>101026256?
Re-recording a voice a bunch of times to match the animation seems much easier than repeatedly messing with the animation to match the voice.
You do realize that the sources for those articles are all for pre-digital animation, right? The process has changed.
So is Hunter oger?
I knew schedules for anime were tight but they were only a week ahead?
If I were a producer, I'd have at least half of the show finished before even airing
Not so sure about that. The Japanese wikipedia still seems to indicate otherwise, but I'm open to seeing your sources that back up your statement.
Some studios are better organized than others. There's Kyoani, then there's Yamakan.
I mean real animation, not anime.
>an election will be held in which HxH fans will vote for a seiyuu to replace him
Why ;_; First Utsumi Kenji, and now him... Rest in peace.
Because getting old is dangerous.
It's best to avoid it all together.
Wait. Isn't a new episode supposed to be out tomorrow?
Madhouse are usually one of the more organized ones. I don't know about HxH, but I read that the entire season of Hajime no Ippo Rising was basically finished before it even started airing.
Has Madhouse ever done an anime original ending for a show?
I have to wonder how ready they were. Kamogawa's VA died a few weeks before Hajime no Ippo Rising started airing, and they changed his voice actor.
Didn't Claymore have an original ending?
All the netero was recorded long time ago, and there is like a million of guys that can impose any voice, stop bitching already
Why are there so many cold anons?
Because it's cool to be a heartless badass over the internet.
Sieg Zeon. Who would have thought he survived the war to die by Coronary artery disease.
He was a good VA, people from the past will miss him.
>and there is like a million of guys that can impose any voice, stop bitching already
Explain to me why Kamogawa's replacement VA is so shit then?
Were the endings any good? I can't help but feel it's still weird, though. Didn't the original Ippo not resort to an original ending? That airing duration was way before Claymore, so it seems like they have no problem waiting for a manga to get ahead to wait for enough material to make another season.
>Didn't the original Ippo not resort to an original ending?
Well, the last episode expanded an interview about Takamura and explored his life a bit. I wouldn't consider that an original ending, given the Champion's Road TV film came out shortly afterwards, which continued more or less where the anime left off -- with the Mashiba vs Kimura special being after.
Needless' ending sucked. Left no room for a sequel.
hmm, not that guy, but it doesn't make sense to have it any other way. It's not like they are producing every episode in a week. They are probably many episodes ahead. Also they won't be doing recordings for just one episode, but multiple (especially for characters like Netero who don't have that much text to begin with)
That's the way voicework is done in the States. That is not the way voicework is done in Japan. They like to have all the castmembers working together at the same time with shared dialogue, so the recordings are generally organized by episode, not by actor.
The rest of Netero's stuff is just him and Meruem though.
If there's one thing Japan is consistent with, it's inflexibility. Because they do things a certain way, they do everything that way. They don't tend to switch things around just because it makes sense for that particular case.
New voice actor.
If he can pull off an old man voice.
Netero's voice is meant to sound really old but condescending at the same time.
>If he can pull off an old man voice.
Wakamoto is almost 70 you know
He will be the next dead
I hope the HxH episodes with him in it are already done. I really liked Netero and his voice. They're not, right? ;_;
>Wakamoto will die soon and his best role in life was a fucking flying yellow ball
>Star Wars series (Yoda)
Netero was cool, but harping on his passing achieves nothing.
Ask yourselves: What would Netero do?
Play a ball game with some kids on an airship.
Rest easy buddy
It's usually less than 1 week
We must be prepared for this...everyone will be taken by the Grim Reaper one day.
here you go made a wallpaper for his honor
Ah, fucking man
Can you imagine what it's like for everyone else working on Hunter X Hunter?
One of your older co-workers just ends up being dead the next day
Megumi-chan in particular is probably crushed given her emotional attachment to Hunter
Togashi is next. I just know it. The series should have ended at Election and D.C. could have been a movie.
N-no Gundam Unicorn isn't done yet.
BECAUSE HE IS DEAD HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
sorry, had to say it.
Isn't there a video in the election arc he's supposed to voice, as well?
Maybe he already did that part, but I doubt it since it's so far in the future
It's like half a year from now
They'll probably not do the election arc.
Holy fucking shit what am I doing with my life?
It's funny because the chariman dies soon too.
IT ALL YOUR FAULT /a/
IT IS YOUR FAULT HE DIED
He read this thread and gave up living.
What kind of birthday gift was this? What the fuck. Genuinely upset.
