Creator / Daisuke Namikawa
Daisuke Namikawa is one hell of a voice actor, known for his wide and diverse range of voices. At one point he can do the young and goody-goody type, but he can also voice Hot-Blooded
characters or ones so annoying that you want to rip their head off
. But then again, he can also lower it down into a very melancholic, eerie voice. Also quite active in movie dubbing of pretty boy
roles, using his first type of voice.
Not to be confused with Daisuke Hirakawa
, so don't send him Nice Boats
His Japanese female counterpart would be Miyuki Sawashiro
He has also directed a live action film called Wonderful World
He was recently revealed to have been cheating on his wife since 2004
