Daisuke Ono (born May 4, 1978) is a voice actor who burst onto the scene thanks to his role as Itsuki Koizumi in Haruhi Suzumiya, like several other people. He has quite a bit of vocal range, going from Hot-Blooded to The Quiet One on a whim. Most of the characters he voices tend to be a Pretty Boy, as shown with his guest appearance in Lucky Star. (He's also one in real life to boot.) His popularity later skyrocketed after he landed the role of the massively popular Jotaro Kujo (and Star Platinum) in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders TV anime.

As one of a number of actors who have done multiple characters for 07th Expansion, it might be wise to watch him closely.

In the fourth Seiyuu Awards, he won the title of best male seiyuu for his role as Sebastian Michaelis in Black Butler.

Daisuke is also part of the music industry. He has about six singles (Amaoto, Manatsu no Spica, Kinmokusei, Netsuretsu ANSWER, DELIGHT, and Lunar Maria), one mini-album, titled Hinemosu, and one full album, titled Kazehana. He also hosts a radio show called Dear Girl ~stories~ (as OnoD) with Hiroshi Kamiya, which is very popular in Japan and has even spawned a manga, two DS games, and two feature-length films. In addition, Hiroshi and Daisuke have been cast together in anime (most of the time as foils) way too many times to count. Also, arguably coming close in second with shared roles tends to be another "Daisuke", who happens to be Daisuke Kishio.

No familial relations with either Kensho Ono or Yuki Ono, though he has worked with them. Funnily enough, all three of them voiced a Jojo.

Tropes associated with Daisuke Ono:

  • As Himself: He voiced and played himself in Dear Girl ~stories~ as OnoD. In addition, he (and Kamiya) usually promote their voice roles in that show.
  • Manchild: Despite him typically being typecasted as The Stoic, a majority of footage of Daisuke online show him acting like a child in a man's body, hamming up his public performances to the nth degree.
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: Daisuke's got a pretty impressive range for a seiyuu, going from being Hot-Blooded, to quiet, to high-pitched, to Baritone of Strength; the last of which sound like a youthful version of Joji Nakata. However, his weak point would be drunk singing, as demonstrated very painfully when he sang STAND PROUD and Sono Chi No Sadame while being drunk on an episode of Dear Girl ~stories~ which celebrated his birthday, resulting in one of the biggest examples of Cringe Comedy in his career. His singing voice does get better as time goes on though, as evident in his songs like Firebird from 2020 STARGAZER album and Kemono Michi from 2021 Kemono Michi single.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Ono has been outspoken about his love of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and cites it as one of the manga that inspired him to take up voice-acting. Fast-forward, and he's cast as protagonist Jotaro Kujo in the David Production anime (and All-Star Battle before that).
  • Vocal Evolution: His later roles involve him using a deeper voice when compared to his earlier roles. Contrast him as Itsuki Koizumi and Shizuo Heiwajima, roles which he took up within the span of a year.
