Some sad news for Sailor Moon fans today. Toshiya Ueda died earlier this month on February 8th at the age of 88. He had an extensive resume of anime voice work including a recent role as Vilk in The Promised Neverland. Sailor Moon fans would know him as the voice of Kunitachi the gardener in a first season episode of the original Sailor Moon anime. In episode 15 Toshiya Ueda’s character is transformed by Nephrite from a kind man to one who’s angry and violent in protecting his park from development.
Five years ago Chris Wiggins, the English voice actor of that same character, named Mr. Baxter in the DiC dub of the original Sailor Moon anime, died at the age of 87.
