Oh, welcome. Please, won't you sit down? Care for a drink? ''[[Anime/{{Monster}} I assure you, it's not made from other people's blood]]''.

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. 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.

He has been in the business since [[TheEighties the late eighties]], in fact, he was part of the ''first'' Seiyuu BoyBand ever to bloomed in popularity in Japanese history, The ''[=NG5=]''; who's made up from the main five voice actors of ''Anime/RoninWarriors'', which included Creator/TakeshiKusao.

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 Tetsuo in the movie ''Manga/{{Akira}}'', Johan Liebert from ''Manga/{{Monster}}'', Shin Mouri from ''Anime/RoninWarriors'', and Yusuke Urameshi from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''. But unfortunately, he is one of those actors who has to undergo some [[VocalEvolution dramatic switch]] in TypeCasting due to his voice aging early. Therefore most of his recent characters are of TheSociopath, AxCrazy, [[IllGirl Ill Guy]], and {{Jerkass}} type. ''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 [[Anime/BtX if that word was recited]] by [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama a certain 'younger brother' of his]]. 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.

Please do not confuse him with the similarly named voice actress, Nozom''i'' Sasaki, ''I had to kill her too''.

!!Tropes Associated with Sasaki:
* TheQuietOne: A reserved man by nature, people would find Sasaki's small talks ''really'' small talks, unless he's required to answer questions, host, or make lengthy statements; and he doesn't really prefer to budge in on conversations unless the topics are aiming directly to him. A good example can be seen through his various ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' commentary sessions, be it old or recent years, where he just naturally sits through entire conversations with his mouth shut while the other three just keep flexing their tongues.
