Nobuhiko Okamoto (born October 24, 1986) is a seiyuu from Tokyo best known for his Star-Making Role as Accelerator from A Certain Magical Index, in which he not only won the Best New Actor Award in the Third Seiyuu Awards, he also went on to win the award for Best Supporting Actor in the Fifth Seiyuu Awards.

He's worked with Yuu Kobayashi and Mariya Ise at least twice. Ditto with Ayumi Fujimura, Hiro Shimono and Yoko Hikasa. What's front-and-center, however, is that he seems to have developed a (friendly) rivalry with Atsushi Abe as they've prominently faced-off in at least three series to date. His typecast is usually Hot-Blooded characters, whether good or bad (expect characters voiced by him to give a battle scream at least once), but he can also play The Stoic or The Casanova type roles, as well as The Cutie, depending on the type of series he is in. Also, Keiji Fujiwara seems to be a father figure in some roles.


On March 21, 2020, it was revealed that he is married to fellow voice actor Asuka Oogame.

Several English voice actors that shared some of his roles include Michael Sinterniklaas note , Greg Ayres note , Josh Grelle note , Micah Solusod note , Austin Tindle note , and Blake Shepard note .

Tropes associated with Nobuhiko Okamoto

  • Anti-Hero: Some of his more noticeable roles tend to be this, such as Accelerator, Rei Ogami, Karma, and Katsuki Bakugo.
  • Bishōnen: A large variety of roles.
  • Guttural Growler: Most of the times he voices Hot-Blooded anti-heroes, he tends to give them very coarse, raspy voices.
  • Large Ham: Accelerator.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Especially when you think about the likes of Ghiaccio and Bakugo, Okamoto himself is very soft-spoken, well-mannered and good-humored, and, by his own admission, was very shy around girls as a teenager.
  • Pigeonholed Voice Actor: A majority of his characters tend to be handsome, heroic characters. Interestingly enough, some of his well-known roles happen to be anti-heroes instead.
  • Typecasting: He's played more than a few hammy characters with a Hair-Trigger Temper.
