Describe TohruFuruya here.

All right. Over 50 years old, and still has the voice of a {{Bishonen}}. Whoa.

Anyway, Tohru Furuya is also one of the older seiyuus that, along with AkiraKamiya, triggered the second seiyuu boom. He is most famous for his role as the first ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' hero Amuro Ray, and is almost as well known for voicing Pegasus Seiya in the classic ''SaintSeiya'' series. He still continues on working even now, maintaining his bishie voice... which can still be heard in Ribbons "[[FanNickname Bad Amuro]]" Almark of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]''. He uses the pseudonym 'Noboru Suigetsu' when working Ribbons' voice, just so the fans can differentiate him and Amuro... but really, [[PaperThinDisguise who would be fooled?]]

His first role was actually as a child actor in ''Series/{{Ultraman}}''!

He was a close friend of the late HirotakaSuzuoki.

Here he is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGFShCNRphg in GPS form]].

Anyway, Tohru Furuya is also one of the older seiyuus that, along with AkiraKamiya, triggered the second seiyuu boom. He is most famous for his role as the first ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' hero Amuro Ray, and is almost as well known for voicing Pegasus Seiya in the classic ''SaintSeita'' series. He still continues on working even now, maintaining his bishie voice... which can still be heard in Ribbons "[[FanNickname Bad Amuro]]" Almark of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]''. He uses the pseudonym 'Noboru Suigetsu' when working Ribbons' voice, just so the fans can differentiate him and Amuro... but really, [[PaperThinDisguise who would be fooled?]]
