Creator / Yoshimasa Hosoya
Yoshimasa Hosoya is a Japanese seiyuu born in 1982. He's known to voice a variety of roles from Badass Baritone
to younger characters; essentially the youthful answer to Keiji Fujiwara
An interesting trivia note of his career is his Ascended Extra
status regarding his involvement in the Yu-Gi-Oh!
franchise. He voiced the minor villain Dick Pitt in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's
, the major villain IV in Yu Gi Oh Zexal
, and then The Rival
Reiji Akaba in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V
. Not bad.
He can also be found in recent sports anime such as Kuroko no Basuke
, The Prince of Tennis
, and Free!
: Eternal Summer
(Gundam Build Fighters Try
may also count, considering one of the primary premises thereof.)
His American equivalents are Keith Silverstein
, Robert McCollum
(for Badass Baritone
roles), and Todd Haberkorn
(for younger characters), and Xander Mobus
According to staff and DVD commentary of the No. 6
anime adaption he's a bit of a Cloudcuckoolander
, going so far as to call strange way of thinking "Hosoya Logic".
