Creator: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka

One of the newer male seiyuus cropping up during the 2000s, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka [松岡 禎丞] (born September 17, 1986 in Hokkaido) first debuted as Shouta Mitarai of The iDOLM@STER. However, it wasn't until the early 2010s when his roles started to increase, particularly Sword Art Online's Kirito. Due to the success of SAO, he is beginning to be typecast as Nice Guy harem protagonists or vanilla heroes.

His American counterpart is Bryce Papenbrook. Compare Satoshi Hino and Hiro Shimono for similarly typecast seiyuus in the mid-2000s.
