I know its a few days ago, but i just heard about this. here's an excerpt
" The Asahi Shinbun newspaper in Japan has reported that veteran actor Hisashi Katsuta has passed away at the age of 92. Noting the cause as senility, Katsuta passed away on Friday and his estate has confirmed the death through the report on Saturday. Katsuta has provided the voice for several classic anime characters, but will likely be most remembered for his time as the voice of Professor Hiroshi Ochanomizu in the 1960s anime adaptation of Astro Boy. Not only that, he would return to voice the character in the 1980s and 2000s version of the series as well."
