    I know him mostly as Sanada. He'll be missed... one of the central roles in one of the most iconic, influential cartoon series of all time. And there were to be two more movies in the Yamato Resurrection trilogy... I'm not sure what they'll do with that... recast the role or write the character out... RIP, Aono.

    A real shame, he was very enjoyable as Deszaras/Deathsaurus.

    Hope his family are doing okay. My thoughts are with them.

    I'll never forget hearing him in the first subbed anime I ever watched, Doujin Issei in Giant Robo, way back in 1998. Bummer.
