The iconic narrator for Funimation’s Dragon Ball English dub, Brice Armstrong, has passed away. He died of natural causes on January 10 at the age of 84, according to a statement by his management company.
Alongside providing narration for Dragon Ball’s English dub, which aired on Toonami from 2001-2003, Armstrong voiced other series characters like Captain Ginyu and Lord Slug. He also breathed life into characters from various other anime such as Cased Closed, Fullmetal Alchemist, Yu Yu Hakusho, and more.
While Armstrong is best known for anime, he has also appeared in a few video games. These include BloodRayne 2, the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai series, Dragon Ball Z: Sagas, and more. Armstrong retired in 2009.
The latest Dragon Ball game, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, recently launched on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The action-RPG follows the events of Dragon Ball Z’s most iconic moments, ranging from the Sayain Saga to the Majin Buu Saga. Throughout Kakarot, you’ll encounter Captain Ginyu a number of times, so be sure to give him a proper send-off.
