Motomu Kiyokawa has Passed Away

We regret to inform all of you that on August 17th; Motomu Kiyokawa, who played Fuyutsuki in both the Eva TV series as well as the New Theatrical Edition films, had died of pneumonia at age 87. Kiyokawa is the second known member of the Eva cast, and the first member of the show’s primary voice cast to pass away. He was preceded in death by Eji Maruyama, who played the elderly homeroom teacher for Class 2A.

Kiyokawa has also played other roles such as Tem Ray, the father of the protagonist from Mobile Suit Gundam, Gargoyle from Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, Mayor Domino from the Final Fantasy VII: Remake game, among numerous others in a decades long career.

This should be a reminder to all of us that time is fleeting and that those in entertainment who we admire, could be gone from us before we know it.
