These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV Tropes associated with Norio Wakamoto:
Crowning Moment of Awesome: Following the March 11 earthquake, Wakamoto was among the unaccounted-for, causing a great deal of worry for his fans. Finally, 2ch reported that he was alright, having sent word to friends and family to let them know that he was okay...and then immediately went off to help with the rescue and recovery efforts (helps that he WAS a policeman before he was a seiyuu). There's a reason people love this man, tropers.
For a role-based awesome, even if it was Nightmare Fuel-tastic... him voicing Chousen, the Macho CampGender Flip of Diao Chan could count, as it proves that he also does a convincingly gay character and possibly makes it one of the most awesome things in the show. As a Youtube user commented...
Leave it to Wakamoto to turn the gayest character into the most awesome character in the show
Ensemble Darkhorse: Because he is that badass, any characters he voices always have a chance to become one.
He may be considered as one in the seiyuu industry if you think about it.
