Default JP Gen1 Dezarus/Deathsaurus Voice Actor dies

In the (Japanese) Masterforce cartoon (which we had released here last year on DVD), the leader of the Decepticons was Dezarus/Deathsaurus (spelling depends on if you go by the exact pronunciation or the word they were aiming for).

The Voice Actor Takeshi Aono apparently died on Monday, aged 76, after a recent stroke.

It may not seem significant to us in a Hasbro market, but to Japanese TFs fans, and fans of Masterforce, this is like having any of the Hasbro Leadership Voice Actors pass away.

So maybe as a sign of respect, if you have a copy of Masterforce, or can find a small clip on youtube, have another listen to how that Decepticon Leader was voiced.
