NANI?!]]²²One of the seiyuus who went from virtually unnoticed to very popular thanks to the anime juggernaut that is ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', where he voiced [[DeadpanSnarker Kyon]]. Before that, some people might recognise him as Hideki from ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'', but, well, that's old news. After his performance as Kyon, he started displaying a wide range of voices, making him one of the best and most revered seiyus in the business today. His forte is most likely the DeadpanSnarker type.²²He also has some sort of rivalry with Creator/TomokazuSeki, just because they have the same given name. They are in fact managed by the same agency [[http://www.atomicmonkey.jp/ Atomic Monkey]] which Seki is a founding member of.²²He's very "hardcore" according to the [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Blue Radio]] podcast. Plus it's known, from various radio shows and interviews, that he's also a VERY keen gamer and anime {{otaku}}, coming out with references to anime, manga and games even when nobody besides him knows what he's talking about. This is why he's nicknamed "[[FanNickname Freedom Sugita]]" by fans. And no, he is not doing this because he's influenced by his role in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}''. He just happened to be awesome like that. Occasionally, a fellow seiyu or two will catch the references and continue the conversation from there. ²²He's notable that for a few times, he made some ''spot on'' Creator/NorioWakamoto impressions, once in [[Radio/BlazBlueRadio Bururaji]], again in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' and later when he, along with Creator/YuuichiNakamura and Creator/TakahiroSakurai, do so while playing a ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' fighting game for the [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Mega Drive]] (''Yu Yu Hakusho: Makyō Tōitsusen'', to be specific), all picking Wakamoto's character Chu. And narrating it. Later he does it again in ''Manga/SketDance''.²²Now available as a GPS.²²He and Creator/YuuichiNakamura also host a program called ''Series/TokyoEncounter'' where they play video games and share some trivia. And also goof off. That Wakamoto impersonation? It's from that show.²²He was also responsible for revealing (well, to be exact getting the confirmation from Creator/MitsuhiroIchiki himself) about the entire mess of the staff of ''LightNovel/KokoroConnect''. Needless to say, he wasn't amused by it.²²He, alongside Creator/ArcSystemWorks, revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2012 that they were collaborating on a doujin game called ''VisualNovel/GetsueiAcademyKou'' [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2012-09-20/voice-actor-tomokazu-sugita-novel-inspires-video-game written by himself.]] [[http://www.siliconera.com/2013/07/29/blazblue-developers-next-game-was-originally-written-by-ragnas-voice-actor/ And it became an actual game itself]] under the name''Tsukie Academy Kou''. He also proposed and created the design for newcomer [[CampGay Amane Nishiki]] in ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma''.²²He goes by the names "Hareto Shishi", "Tekkamen", "Nanimusha", "Mobile Armor" and "Rokotsumaru" when voicing for R-rated works.²----²!!Voice roles by Tomokazu Sugita:²* Akira Agarkar Yamada (and Tapioca!) in ''Anime/{{Tsuritama}}''²* Akuru A-kun Akutsu in ''Manga/AhoGirl''²* Alvin in ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' and ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2''²** Albert and Orfiel in ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence''²* Arma in ''Anime/MechaUde''²* Atsushi "Acchan" Maeda in ''Manga/HaventYouHeardImSakamoto''²* Aurelius Izzard in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''²* Axel Stone of ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage'' in ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone 2''²* [[AllChinesePeopleKnowKungFu Banri]] in ''VideoGame/OneHundredSleepingPrincesAndTheKingdomOfDreams''²* Basophil in ''Manga/CellsAtWork''²* Beowulf in ''Crystal of Reunion''²* Big Band in the Japanese dub of ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}''²* Billy Cranston / Blue Ranger in the Japanese dub of ''Film/PowerRangers2017''²* Bird #1 in ''LightNovel/ElegantYokaiApartmentLife'' (''Chun chun chun chu-chun ga chun!'')²* Brooklyn "Bullet" Luckfield in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' series and ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration OGs]]'' ( '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3zJCj0l5lk UMASUGI WAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE]]''' ! )²** Gaen in ''Characters/MasouKishin''²* Carlos in ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma''²* [[MiniMecha Chamber]] in ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet'' and ''Third VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ: Tengoku-hen''²* Charlotte Katakuri in ''Manga/{{One Piece}}'' ²* The chick vendor in ''Anime/{{Higepiyo}}''²* Chiga in ''Manga/SeitokaichouNiChuukoku''²* Chizuru Maru in ''Manga/BoardingSchoolJuliet''²* Chrom in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone 2'' and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosUltimate''²* Chrono Harlaown (as an adult) in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers''²* Clerk [[TheDanza Sugita]] in ''Manga/LuckyStar''[[invoked]]²* Daiichi Yamura in ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}''²* David in VideoGame/KillerIsDead ²* Demushu in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim''²* Dias Flac in ''[[VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory Star Ocean]]: [[VideoGameRemake Second Evolution]]'' (succeeding Creator/RyoHorikawa)²* Dirk Everwein in ''LightNovel/TheAsteriskWar''²* DJ Condor in ''VisualNovel/OretachiNiTsubasaWaNai'' ²* Drakon in ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic''²* Drang and Paris in ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy''²* Dylas in ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4''²* [[GentlemanSnarker Edgar Valtinas]] in ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven''²* Escanor in ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins''²* Eraser Ace in ''VideoGame/ChousokuHenkeiGyrozetter''²* Etsuya Eizan in ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma''²* [[FatCat Garfield]] in the Japanese dub of ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'s Pet Force''²* George Takadanobaba in ''Anime/KingOfPrism''²* Gintoki Sakata in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' ('''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Wq-Sq9WcIE&feature=youtu.be&t=4s AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!]]''')²--> [[BreakingTheFourthWall Bet you're thinking "this isn't how I imagined Gin-chan to sound," huh?

But he can also use a soft voice.²* {{Crossdresser}}: He has crossdressed (most often while cosplaying) several times in events, TV shows and conventions. He even does that privately in conventions.²* DeadpanSnarker: His defining role. Kyon is the shining example of this trope.²* {{Megane}}: Has voiced a bunch of these characters, such as [[Manga/SketDance Switch]], [[Manga/HoneyAndClover Mayama]], [[Manga/CuticleDetectiveInaba Yataro]] and [[Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys Hidenori]].²* ManOfAThousandVoices: A trait he shares with Koyasu. When you can play both the young and the old versions of [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Joseph Joestar]], you are definitely this.²** Also notable in that with his roles as MZMA and Kurodōji, he doesn't even use his typical baritone voice. He instead uses a ''very'' soft-teenage voice that's hard to recognize.²* MundaneMadeAwesome: Not only the Creator/NorioWakamoto impression, but when he plays ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting 2'' with Creator/YuuichiNakamura, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11d3GLGID3g he amps up his "image" by picking Takuma while wearing Mr. Karate's Tengu Mask.]]²* PowerTrio:²** He, Creator/KanakoKondou and Creator/AsamiImai host the web radio show ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlue BuluRaji]]'' (and its sequels) from April 2009 until to this day. As of now, they are doing the eighth season.²** While technically a duo with Nakamura, they do form a trio with TheNarrator Creator/TakashiKondo who narrates the show every single episode.²* RunningGag:²** He swears that he'll be able to pilot (well, technically voice a major character) a ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}''. All without ever getting cast as one.²*** In any case, this turns out to be inevitable: he ended up as Kei Karima in ''Anime/GundamBuildFightersTry'', and pilots the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam Cherudim]]... ''model''. [[spoiler: And becoming the ButtMonkey, even before the National Tournament.]]²*** With ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', this ends up played with: He never voiced someone major [[spoiler:or respectable]] from Gundam... but he ended up voicing someone ''named Gund(h)am''...²** He is prone of doing seiyuu impressions in public shows. Creator/NorioWakamoto and Creator/RikiyaKoyama are probably his most common impressions, but he has also done several others more than once (Creator/JojiNakata, Creator/ShowtaroMorikubo, Creator/RyotaroOkiayu, Creator/TetsuyaKakihara, Creator/YuichiNakamura, Creator/DaisukeGori, Tomomi Isomura (and by that extension, Creator/KeijiFujiwara), Creator/HirokiYasumoto, Creator/UnshoIshizuka, etc.) and some more.²* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: While he didn't use it in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' unlike Creator/PatrickSeitz, he can do [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Wq-Sq9WcIE#t=00m04s an epic one]] in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}''.²----²-->''Let me show you...my trump card.''\²''And what exactly is your trump card?''\²''(long beat)''\²''[[Series/KamenRiderKiva KIVATTE]] [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure NIGERUNDAYO~!]]''\²''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Yare,]] [[Manga/{{Gintama}} yare...]]''
