: Colonel, I need you to describe my seiyuu
here for me.
: Huh? No, not my English voice actor, Colonel, but my seiyuu
, the Japanese equivalent of a voice actor.
: 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, Chikao Ohtsuka
, making him an old son
. Until a few years ago, he was also married to another seiyuu, Yoko Soumi
, known for her Vamp
, serious lady or Femme Fatale
roles (like Karen Kasumi from X1999
the TV series, Atsuko from YuYu Hakusho
: So he's part of seiyuu royalty, eh? I wouldn't be surprised if his kids became seiyuus as well.
: 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?
His English counterparts are Crispin Freeman
and Jamieson Price
for California, Kent Williams
for Texas, and Scott McNeil
