'''Snake''': Colonel, I need you to describe my ''[[GratuitousJapanese seiyuu]]'' here for me.\\
'''Colonel''': You want to know about Creator/DavidHayter, huh, Snake?\\
'''Snake''': Huh? No, not him.\\
'''Colonel''': Well, then Creator/KieferSutherland?\\
'''Snake''': No, Kiefer voices Big Boss. Not my English voice actor, Colonel, but my Japanese ''seiyuu''.\\
'''Colonel''': Oh, right. My mistake. Akio Ohtsuka, born November 24, 1959, is one of the most respected veterans in the seiyuu business. He's the son of another veteran seiyuu, Creator/ChikaoOhtsuka, making him an ''old son''. Until a few years ago, he was also married to another seiyuu, Creator/YokoSoumi, known for her [[TheVamp Vamp]], serious lady or FemmeFatale roles, like Karen Kasumi from Manga/{{X1999}} the TV series and Atsuko from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''.\\
'''Snake''': So he's part of seiyuu royalty, eh? I wouldn't be surprised if his kids became seiyuu as well.\\
'''Colonel''': 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 seiyuu. 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?

Note: [[SpellMyNameWithAnS May also be spelt as "Ootsuka" instead in romaji]].
