Post by Mxylv »

On March 22, Dan Jirou passed away of lung cancer. He was best known for portraying Go Hideki, human host of Ultraman Jack from The Return of Ultraman (1971), and he also appeared in the three next entries before reprising his role in Ultraman Mebius and Ultraman Saga.

Rest in peace, Jirou-san. If anyone wants to pay respects by watching some of his other content, he also portrays the overseer of the title location of Godzilla Island, a lighthearted 1997 microseries that Toho has recently begun uploading.
