So you wish to learn about the acclaimed voice actor Nozomu Sasaki? ''You should have seen the look on his face as I plunged the knife into his heart.'' Well, he was the [[CelebCrush No.1 male idol seiyuu]] of the TheNineties thanks to his large amount of {{Bishonen}} roles, a beautiful singing voice, and [[IWasQuiteALooker his cute face]], and has been the winner of the Seiyuu Grand Prix ranking more often than ''anyone'' of his generation. Sasaki was known in his prime for his ability to range up towards the '''contralto-near-mezzo register''' comparable to Creator/MitsukiSaiga, and ''[[CrossdressingVoices practically near identical]]'' to [[Creator/MinamiTakayama Minami Takayama's]] voice range, especially to her [[Manga/DetectiveConan Conan]] voice; allowing him to play [[AdorablyPrecociousChild lots of adorably precocious children]] in a ''very'' young age range to which most actors in his time couldn't achieve. For the knowledge of the newer anime fanbase, taking account of his popularity and vocal type, he is considered as the predecessor of Creator/JunFukuyama and the more recent Creator/YuukiKaji.

Most of his famous roles were his early ones, [[note]][[GloryDays Which were done in his twenties]][[/note]] often [[PigeonholedVoiceActor typed]] as TheHero, TheHeart, NiceGuy, MouthyKid, and [[CreepyChild The Creepy Child]], such as [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]], [[Anime/RoninWarriors Shin Mouri]], and [[Manga/YuYuHakusho Yusuke Urameshi]]. Unfortunately, he is one of those actors who has to undergo some [[VocalEvolution dramatic switch]] in TypeCasting; due to his voice aging early in the form of his voice dropping a good couple of octaves downward to the tenor with a much hoarser texture. Therefore, most of his recent characters are of TheSociopath, AxCrazy, [[IllGirl Ill Guy]], and {{Jerkass}} type such as [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Hayate Gekko]], [[Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis Jin Atsuku]], and [[Manga/{{Monster}} Johan Liebert]]...''I [[KillEmAll "helped"]] him along, of course''.

Oh yes, he doesn't like to use the word 'Nii-san' thanks to a certain role he had in ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'', but it may be a whole different story if that word was recited by a certain '[[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama younger brother]]' of his, [[Anime/BtX of which project also happened to have an "X" in it's title]]. Along with his other fellow ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' cast mates, Creator/MegumiOgata, and Creator/ShigeruChiba, he had claimed all three of them to be his TrueCompanions.
