Describe Mamoru Miyano (宮野 真守, born June 8, 1983 in Saitama Prefecture, Japan) here.

Tall, handsome, gentleman, and he's Gundam.

But, in an industry not known for having men with killer looks, this lad is one of them. While his vocal range is rather low his acting skills are impressive, going from a clueless sailor who was caught up in the war between Exorcists and Akuma (as Chaozii), to The Chessmaster known as Light Yagami in Death Note, to the Idiot Hero Bishounen Tamaki of Ouran High School Host Club. Basically he's capable of acting as just about any type of character.

Before becoming a voice actor he was a musical stage actor, having performed in The Prince of Tennis musicals as Fudomine player Tetsu Ishida. His very first voice acting role was Riku of Kingdom Hearts, and his career just kept going from there. Recently, he lends his voice to Gym Leader Cilan of Pokémon and Shin Kamiya in Tekken: Blood Vengeance.


He's known to work alongside Maaya Sakamoto as well, and rumors of an offscreen romance between the two of them floated around for years, but he married another girl (she herself married their fellow voice actor Kenichi Suzumura recently). He and Sakamoto most recently appeared together in Tekken: Blood Vengeance. He also appears alongside Miyu Irino, usually as friends or rivals.

Aside from the aforementioned Sakamoto, Suzumura and Irino, he has also worked with Hiroshi Kamiya, Yūichi Nakamura, Jun Fukuyama, Yoshimasa Hosoya, Romi Park, Daisuke Namikawa, Daisuke Ono, Takahiro Sakurai, Kappei Yamaguchi and Yūki Kaji in a few roles.

In December 2008, he announced that he was to be married and his then fiancée was pregnant (a big deal for him, since health problems were this close to rendering poor Miyano sterile). This produced a nerd rage by his rabid Fangirls which was a sight to behold. In 2013 he confessed he can't swim amusing as he voices both Rin from Free! and voices over Percy Jackson in the Japanese dubs of the Percy Jackson films.


Thanks to a few of his roles, he practically is a Fountain of Memes. Just take a look at this trope page for example.

Before we go to his roles, I'll take that potato chip... AND EAT IT!!!

Tropes, COME ON!

  • Adorkable: He basically turned JJ into full-on Sailor Moon. And giggles throughout.
  • Alliterative Name: Mamoru Miyano.
  • Badass Baritone: After he started out a few years of voicing Bishonen teenagers, he's capable of projecting his vocal range deeper into this territory for his characters like Okabe Rintaro from Steins;Gate and also when he's wearing his Chuunibyou personality, Hououin Kyouma.
  • Bishōnen: A lot of his characters (the "prince" or "gentleman" kind to be exact).
    • He definitely qualifies as one himself, too.
  • Large Ham: He definitely knows how to ham it up. Ultraman Zero, Okabe and Tamaki are really hammy most of the time, Light and Fushimi also have their moments.
  • The Hyena: Very prone to laughing loud.
  • The Rival: Plenty of his roles are rivals of the main character. That, or as the The Lancer. Sometimes the two overlaps.
