Looks like he died of some illness. He was 35.

We'll remember you as the fantastic actor who played a beloved role in 555.

Edit: Also, he played the fantastic second in command in akihabara@deep. He's also been in various other roles:

God that's far too young. More's the pity.

He was my favorite character in Faiz; best "Dark Rider" the movies ever gave us; not to mention the best overall series villain ever. (I always considered him to be the main villain of the show, even if he didn't always behave in an evil manner.)

That's because he was similar to Heart. A villain that doesn't view themselves as villain due to past encounter with the 'true evil' that is the final villain. Both cared deeply on their own kin and undergoes some character growth in the series.

Sad to hear the news. And what exactly is the cause of his death? I only heard that it was due to sickness, but just that. Nothing on the type of sickness mentioned anywhere.

He was my favorite character from Faiz as well. He basically made the show, in my opinion.

Wow, he was about the same age as me. I'm also reminded of when Miyuki Kanbe passed away, and she was only 24.

Faiz was the first Kamen Rider series I could truly follow, thanks to TV Nihon's original fansub of the series.

I really loved his role as Kiba in Faiz. May he rest in peace.
