Creator / Akira Ishida

Go To

THE voice actor when it comes to Bishōnen characters. The girlier, the better.

Unlike Hikaru Midorikawa, who voices serious, stoic characters, Akira Ishida (born November 2, 1967) seems to be more on the laid-back side... and sometimes on the more enigmatic, sinister side. This makes him quite the fan favorite even today. It does help that his first well known voice was Kaworu Nagisa, which gives him quite a good start, but it wasn't until later that his roles as Athrun Zala and Gaara shot him to great fame.

Has a lot of "relationships" with fellow Gundam SEED voice actor Soichiro Hoshi. And with Romi Park, Megumi Ogata, Mamiko Noto, Megumi Hayashibara, Tomokazu Seki, Yuuki Kaji, Rikiya Koyama, Junichi Suwabe, Joji Nakata, Takehito Koyasu, Megumi Toyoguchi, Akio Ohtsuka, Tomokazu Sugita, and recently Maaya Sakamoto. And some very rabid fangirls and fanboys.


Also, for the record, he's one of the only male voice actors to have voiced a WOMAN.

If his character is killed, expect it to be via head injury.

Not to be confused with the artist Akira Ishida.

Ishida ja nai, Katsura da!
