I'm thinking to add up a section which is the Toku equivalent of Names to Know in Anime, which concludes some well known men in Toku business (actors, mostly, but writers are also welcome).

Just... who should be on the list? The ones I could think of and totally deserves it include:

Any other recommendations? (I would think that Tetsuo Kurata could be in...)

Hmm... perhaps making a Names To Know In Toku writeup on YKTTW might be the best forum for this, but here's some ideas:

I'd say throw in some writers. Masaru Igami  *, Shouzou Uehara  *, and Hirohisa Soda  * all dominated the 70s and 80s. For 90s and 00s writers, Naruhisa Arakawa  *, Toshiki Inoue  *, and Yasuko Kobayashi  * definitely deserve mention.

Musicians too: Ichiro Mizuki, Masato Shimon, Takayuki Miyauchi, Akira Kushida, and Hironobu Kageyama are all big names  *. Isao Sasaki, Mitsuko Horie, and Shin'ichi Ishihara also deserve mention; they're just not quite as big to toku as the above five.

I could help you with this, being the one who has started a huge majority of toku articles in this particular section. Some suggestions: Eiji Tsuburaya Shotaro Ishinomori Toru Hirayama(producer behind the majority of 70s toku in Toei)

Musicians and Composers(in addition to above mentioned): Michiaki Watanabe Shunsuke Kikuchi Toshihiko Sahashi Koorogi '73(not as big to toku music as main singers, but still made up a huge part of songs in 70s and 80s) Tatsumi Yano

And a few more actors/voice actors: Eisuke Yoda Masaki Terasoma Koji Moritsugu Susumu Kurobe Shunsuke Takasugi Kenta Satou
