Previously known as Nobutoshi Hayashi, changed his name right at the beginning of the year 2000. Nobutoshi Canna is also one of the more prominent anime seiyuus in the '90s, and still continue to do things in this day.

As for his roles, he's mostly set on badasses, but usually they're not on the spectrum of old men. He can also do intellectual people, HotBlooded people, or goody two shoes, or even a kid (in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Super Robot Wars A Portable]]'', he actually voiced Uchuta from ''Anime/{{Zambot 3}}''!). He also has a tendency to voice people who [[BloodKnight just like to fight]] and can pull off BruceLeeClone roles just fine.
