Akira is not well known in other parts of the world like other actors, but he had made himself a bankable actor within Japan’s anime and live-action industry. Fans mourn his loss by sending well wishes to his family and sharing links to helplines if anyone is feeling down or depressed.
Coronavirus has taken a lot of lives, but there was also an increase in the number of suicides during this pandemic. Most of which was due to the loss of income and even depression.
The fans of the live-action television series, Kamen Rider, have trouble accepting the fact that Akira is no more. Akira showcased his ability to the world of anime and live-action and its fans by playing many different roles in the franchise.
The Kamen Rider, also known as Masked Rider, is a series based on a motorcycle-riding superhero who protects his planet’s residents by fighting the bad guys.
It is one of the biggest franchises in anime and had a more significant impact on Japan‘s superhero and action-adventure genre in the early 70s. The franchise began in 1971 and has been made into movies, series, video games, and so much more.
Even though the reason for his decision to end his life is still unknown, fans are in deep shock as to what led the actor to it. The world has indeed lost a talented actor, and it is heartbreaking to see that we will never see him perform again.
Our deepest condolences to every fan and family member who is grieving his loss.
