has died. He was 76.
Aono portrayed the diabolical doctor for well over fifteen years; his first performance dating all the way back to Rockman 8 in 1996. More recently, he reprised the role in 2010's Rockman 10 Image Soundtrack.
Beyond Wily, Aono provided the voice for a number of legendary anime characters including Space Battleship Yamato's Shiro Sanada and King Piccolo in Dragon Ball. He will be fondly remembered by Metal Gear Solid fans for his role as Colonel Roy Campbell.
I send my deepest condolences to Aono's family. He will be missed.
