Genma Saotome (Ranma 1/2) voice actor Passes Away and other stuff...

Sorry guys I know it's been practically a month. I've been rearranging some things in my life post Acen and so a lot of projects (including this page) got sidelined.
To start it appears that we lost another figure in the anime industry as Genma Saotome's (the huge Panda) voice actor, Robert O. Smith, in Ranma 1/2 passed away last week. He was 67.

A moment of silence....

Alright, I will begin my next set of articles sometime this week, it may be tonight it maybe later but it will get done before week's end.



  1. Never saw this in English but did see it in Japanese, starting in Japan. As such, I thought that his seiyuu had passed away at first. Either way, it is sad.

  2. As Robert was my father, Thank you very much for your post. :) also my version of that image is http://xoomfarr.deviantart.com/#/d2uuqis
