Days Sprites of oathkeeper and oblivion Sad news, folks. Not sure if anyone was aware, but according to KHInsider, Chikao Ohtsuka, the voice actor in Japan for Captain Hook and Master Xehanort, has passed away.
That's a reason why I held him up for a Featured article. Other than that, and other brighter ideas? — 02:50, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Eternal Flames KHD.png Sad news indeed. Even though I've never played any of the japanese games, it's still a loss. He will be missed. Eternal Flames KHD.png

FA icon.png I mentioned this on the Talk:Xehanort page before bringing this up here (i.e. before RTB directed me here). It'd be easy to think about who would replace Ohtsuka, but I can't. I just can't.

I remember watching the earliest trailers for BBS when the game was in development and that was the first time I came across his voice, or at least knew that the voice was his.

And the sadder thing is, if this had been Nimoy, this'd be a massive splash across the news boards, even in Japan. At this point, it doesn't matter to me. Ohtsuka is a human being, darn it! -- and his soul deserves respect and prayers as much as anyone else's does.

Why did the Keyblade choose me? I have to know. TroisNyxÉtienne — 13:54, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Then we got to come up for something to remember him. Don't be sad Troisnyx, he wouldn't want you to be sad, if he knew you. :) — 14:37, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
