Voice actor Kayumi Iemasa, who portrayed a litany of iconic anime characters, passed away on September 30th at 80 years old. His career spanned decades, with performances as hundreds of recognizable characters in many, many successful series. Conan fans will recognize him as the voice of FBI head agent James Black, a role he performed from 2001 all the way to this year’s movie Dimensional Sniper. He also had a cameo role in the previous year’s crossover film Lupin the Third vs. Detective Conan: The Movie.
Unfortunately, it is expected that his performance in the eighteenth movie was his last recorded contribution to the Conan series.
