Satoshi Hino is a US-born seiyuu, famous for voicing Unlucky Everydude
and Ordinary High-School Student
characters. Sometimes they might be more badass than though.
Although being born in San Francisco, he does not speak English that fluently because he moved out to Japan when he was 5, as revealed in one of the Zero no Tsukaima
radio programs, in 2006. Then, when he was starting school, he found a dislike to the language because kids were so persistent about him 'talking in English' all the time because it was unusual in a kindergarten student. Now an adult, he really laments not having mastered the language. However, his English accent isn't half bad.
He is also a kendo fan.
Had a voice acting relationship with Rie Kugimiya
, especially as lead guys like in Shakugan no Shana
, Zero no Tsukaima
, and Nabari No Ou
would have counted except that in there, they're like Cain and Abel
). They voice the very same character in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas
, a dream deity with a male form and a female form.
Seems to try and diversify his typecast nowadays.
