"Nekketsu Level, Max!"

Next, you will say, "Describe Tomokazu-GAUNTLET HADES!-Sugita here, and do it in an old-fashioned way."

Describe Tomokazu-GAUNTLET HADES!-Sugita here, and do it in an old-fashioned way. Hey, That's My Line!

One of the seiyuus who went from virtually unnoticed to very popular thanks to the anime juggernaut that is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, where he voiced Kyon. Before that, some people might recognise him as Hideki from Chobits, but, well, that's old news. After his performance as Kyon, he started displaying a wide range of voices, making him one of the best and most revered seiyus in the business today. His forte is most likely the Deadpan Snarker type.

He also has some sort of rivalry with Tomokazu Seki, just because they have the same given name. They are in fact managed by the same agency Atomic Monkey which Seki is a founding member of.

He's very "hardcore" according to the Blue Radio podcast. Plus it's known, from various radio shows and interviews, that he's also a VERY keen gamer and anime otaku, coming out with references to anime, manga and games even when nobody besides him knows what he's talking about. This is why he's nicknamed "Freedom Sugita" by fans. And no, he is not doing this because he's influenced by his role in Gintama. He just happened to be awesome like that. Occasionally, a fellow seiyu or two will catch the references and continue the conversation from there.

He's notable that for a few times, he made some spot on Norio Wakamoto impressions, once in Bururaji, again in Gintama and later when he, along with Yuuichi Nakamura and Takahiro Sakurai, do so while playing a YuYu Hakusho fighting game for the Mega Drive (Yu Yu Hakusho: Makyō Tōitsusen, to be specific), all picking Wakamoto's character Chu. And narrating it. Later he does it again in Sket Dance.

Now available as a GPS.

He and Yuuichi Nakamura also host a program called Tokyo Encounter where they play video games and share some trivia. And also goof off. That Wakamoto impersonation? It's from that show.

He was also responsible for revealing (well, to be exact getting the confirmation from Mitsuhiro Ichiki himself) about the entire mess of the staff of Kokoro Connect. Needless to say, he wasn't amused by it.

He, alongside Arc System Works, revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2012 that they're collaborating on a doujin game called Getsuei Academy written by himself. And is slated to be an actual game itself under the nameTsukie Academy Kou. He also proposed and created the design for newcomer Amane Nishiki in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma.
