Describe Hikaru Midorikawa here or ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing I will kill you]]!''

'''Hikaru Midorikawa''' is one of the well-known seiyuus in the business, though not as prolific (according to Anime News Network). He's most known for his distinctly cold voice, best suited for {{bishonen}} characters, which often lands him the roles of TheLancer, TheSmartGuy, TheRival, DeadpanSnarker, etc. He occasionally breaks the routine, though, and goes along to voice silly characters just as well. But, seriously, even if he's voicing silly characters, there will be moments of {{angst}} for his character, so long as the character isn't completely a minor one.

Though born in 1968 and already married, he manages other activities other than being a seiyuu, such as website managing (he's got one though he had to [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-12/hikaru-midorikawa-puts-blog-on-hiatus-due-to-fan-harassment shut down it for a while]] due to FanDumb) and playing video games. Apparently, he's a big fan of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', having a blog entry on the SRW site, contacts Banpresto and happily does extra lines for his characters (especially Masaki) for free, and usually becomes a beta tester for the games. He also have a habit to turn the characters he voices into [[OneManArmy one man armies]] in the [=SRWs=] (namely Heero and Masaki; he'll probably do the same to Xingke when he shows up in Z2, or Asakim [[spoiler:in case he's recruitable]])

He's [[TrueCompanions friends]] with several other seiyuus like Creator/NobuyukiHiyama and Creator/RyotaroOkiayu, who both shared a bit of his [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars SRW]] passion. [[note]]Hiyama voices [[VideoGame/EndlessFrontier Haken Browning]], and was known to "officially pledge" in following Midorikawa's footsteps to fully nerd in SRW. While Okiayu voices Raidiese F. Branstein and sometimes plays SRW together with Midorikawa.[[/note]] He was also a member of a music group with Creator/NobutoshiCanna, but his greatest, most known relationship with other actors is definitely his [[BroMance quite close friend]] Creator/TakehitoKoyasu. [[RelationshipVoiceActor They often play roles that rivals each others]], and [[HoYay Koyasu has once teased that Midorikawa's voice sounded cute; on the other hand, Midorikawa teased that Koyasu's voice sounded sexy]].

Truly a ManOfAThousandVoices.

!![[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories Well these tropes are just]] Hikaru Midorikawa's [[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories style]]:

* {{Bishonen}}: The majority of his characters.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: Not him, but his wife.
* FaceHeelTurn: Two of his roles are noted to be traitorous.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: So prolific that the entire Japanese animation industry can be connected to him in fewer steps than Hollywood is to [[SixDegreesOfKevinBacon Kevin Bacon]].
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: For some reason, the characters he's voiced [[FetishFuel have a tendency to be]] [[JamesBondage cap]][[BadassInDistress tured]] and then [[BoundAndGagged restrained/tied up]].
* SixDegreesOfKevinBacon: He's so prolific that he's pretty much the center of the seiyuu universe.
