YES, YOUR MAJESTY!
Jun Fukuyama is a very interesting seiyuu, when it comes to his role history. At first, you won't notice him much. He usually plays typical straightforward heroes, or someone with a childish personality (something of a Sheltered Aristocrat
, or Idiot Hero
) or as a Wholesome Crossdresser
. These examples include Albert de Morcerf
, Kyle Dunamis
of Tales Of Destiny 2
, or Touga Tenkuuji of Gravion
. Even when he tries deviating a bit as Yumichika Ayasegawa
... he doesn't get a lot of fame.
Until Code Geass
In Code Geass
, he got deliberately cast against type
as the Magnificent Bastard
Lelouch Lamperouge. As the series garnered a lot of popularity, so did Fukuyama's career, thanks to his perfect performance. This role led him to be one of the most famous seiyuus of the current age, and lands him lots of roles, specifically those with the aforementioned Magnificent Bastard
qualities. Same could be said about Johnny Yong Bosch
On the other hand he has lent his voice for many romantic comedy series throughout his entire voice acting career, sometimes as the male lead. Examples include Takaaki Kono
, Keita Kawahira
, and Kei Takishima
After his success in Code Geass
he went off to be a complete pervert using his Lelouch voice in Akikan
and Sora Kake Girl
. He also goes on to play the humble merchant Lawrence in Spice and Wolf
a character with some form of Evil Eye
with Ryner in The Legend of the Legendary Heroes
, the voice for Cookie's battle form in Maji De Watashi Ni Koi Shinasai
, the Posthumous Character
Suguru Aizawa in Area no Kishi
. He is currently using this tone of voice for the young prince of Qin, Zheng from Kingdom
and as Dark Flame Master
whenever Yuuta delusions occasionally surface.A popular Fan Nickname for him was "Mr. Cellphone Spoiler", on account of him using his cell phone to access 2ch and posting Code Geass spoilers "anonymously".
Odd since Todd Haberkorn, who he also has shared a few roles with, coldcalls his voice actor friends at convention panels...
