Yuu Shimaka was born on May 6, 1949 in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. He began his voice acting career in 1982. In addition of voicing Goofy, he also voiced characters in popular animes such as Cowboy Bebop, Metal Armor Dragonar, and Code Geass as well as dubbing for ER, The X-Files, A Bug's Life, and the Transformers [1985 series]. He also ran a private voice acting school called "Goof Troop".

Rest in peace Yuu Shimaka and thank you for voicing Goofy.

Thank you for your hard work and effort in the KH series. Rob wishes he didn't have to experience your performance in the series through YouTube for all these years. Every SE game (even remasters) has dual-audio except for KH. Rob hopes that one day that decision changes because the world needs to hear the voices of these great seiyuu.

RIP

RIP. I never really care about the Japanese audio in KH, but jap Goofy is one of the voices I can still hear in my head, so that’s an accomplishment in it of itself.

y r so many of the voice actors dying recently?

Mostly due to old age, though it's kinda interesting they've been passing away almost all at once. But that is life sometimes, I'm at least glad they lived a long life, though it's still sad to see them go.

Rest in Peace Yuu Shimaka-san! Thank you for all your work as one of the iconic Disney characters in the world! I'm very happy that you were able to live this long to voice Goofy in Kingdom Hearts 3, the final chapter of the Xehanort Saga. Thank you for everything!
