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 Fujiwaranote .

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—turned ally—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, Haikyuu!!, and Free!: Eternal Summer (Gundam Build Fighters Try may also count, considering one of the primary premises thereof.)

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". But that was all part of Hosoya's plan to tip the scales in his favor.
