->'''Snake''': Colonel, I need you to describe ''[[GratuitousJapanese seiyuu]]'' here for me.

->'''Colonel''': You want to know about DavidHayter, huh, Snake?

->'''Snake''': Huh? No, not my English voice actor, Colonel, but my '[[GratuitousJapanese seiyuu]]', the Japanese equivalent of a voice actor.

->'''Colonel''': Oh, right. My mistake. Akio Ohtsuka is one of the most respected seiyuu veterans in the business. He's the son of another veteran seiyuu, ChikaoOhtsuka (who's still active), making him an ''old son''. Until a few years ago, he was also married to another seiyuu, YokoSoumi, known for her [[TheVamp Vamp]], serious lady or FemmeFatale roles (like Karen Kasumi from Manga/{{X1999}} the TV series, Atsuko from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'').

->'''Snake''': So he's part of seiyuu royalty, eh? I wouldn't be surprised if his kids became seiyuus as well.

->'''Colonel''': Known for a deep, gruff voice that fits him into veteran-like roles, Akio often lands characters who are widely considered {{Badass}}, making him quite a fan favorite amongst older seiyuus. He'll gladly do humor roles, as well.

->'''Snake''': Going from serious to humorous, eh? Wouldn't it be best to stick to one role?
