Jesús Barrero, remarkable Latin american voice actor dies at 58.

This is a very sad day for me and for every Spanish speaking anime fan. The legendary Mexican voice actor Jesús Barrero has lost his battle against cancer. He was one of the most beloved and respected Latin american voice actors and he voiced some memorable characters from anime, TV and movies, including:

  • Koji Kabuto in Mazinger Z
  • Jan Kugo (Galáctico) in SF Saiyuki Starzinger
  • Pegasus Seiya in Saint Seiya
  • Yamcha in Dragon Ball series
  • Rick Hunter in Robotech
  • Nube in Hell Teacher Nube
  • Taro Misaki (Tom Misaki) in Captain Tsubasa
  • Jason the Red Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
  • Kogure Kiminobu in Slam Dunk
  • Luke Skywalker in Star Wars episode IV to VI
  • Rex in Toy Story series

Jesús Barrero, descansa en paz.

According to E!, with recent box office smash hits as the Twilight and Divergent franchises, Saban is confident Lionsgate will do right by the beloved, universally-known characters and their world.
