[[GratuitousEnglish Show]][[SpellMyNameWithAnS /Sho/Shou]] Hayami (real name Yasushi Ōhama) is one of the better-known veteran seiyuu in the anime world. He is known for the grandiosity of his voice, which often lands him the role of a LargeHam and goes well with charismatic leaders, whether a BigGood or BigBad. On the other hand, he can also portray complete psychopathic madmen ''very'' convincingly, probably best known for his role as Sousuke Aizen of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. He is married to fellow seiyuu Creator/ReiIgarashi, who is best known as EvilMatriarch [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Precia Testarossa]] and AlphaBitch [[Franchise/TokimekiMemorial Mira Kagami]]. Perfect match.

Beware if someone voiced by him seems both good and affable: chances are he will turn out to be a heroic sociopath... [[FaceHeelTurn and that's assuming]] [[BitchInSheepsClothing he remains a hero at all]]. Some of the exceptions are the archangel Uriel in the ''Manga/AngelSanctuary'' drama [=CDs=], a little emo, but undeniably heroic. Three others are the title character, Exkaiser from ''Anime/BraveExkaiser'', the title character, Da Garn from ''Anime/TheBraveFighterOfLegendDaGarn'', and the main robot, Gaine from ''Anime/TheBraveExpressMightGaine''.

He's got rather a lot of fangirls, mainly because of his rich, husky baritone, which they find very sexy. Creator/MasakazuMorita called him out on this at one live event, where 90% of the audience practically fainted the moment he opened his mouth. Masakazu jokingly asked him to tone it down lest he steal all the attention, and Show apologized, which only made the girls scream louder.

He adores Creator/ToshihikoSeki, his junior.

Since Show likes the "Dr. Hayami" that he was dressed as when he had a guest appearance in ''Omaera No Tame Darou'', he has organized and produced the series ''S.S.D.S. (Super Stylish Doctor's Story)'', where Dr. Hayami is a lead role.

Orson himself is more or less TheStoic... until he gets pissed off (generally by seeing his partner [[TsunDere Shiris]] in danger) and then ''[[UnstoppableRage goes off his fucking gourd.]]''
