Show Hayami is a Jenius.

But in all seriousness, Show note  Hayami (real name Yasushi Ōhama, born August 2, 1958) is one of the better-known veteran voice actors in the anime world. He is known for the grandiosity of his voice, which often lands him the role of a Large Ham and goes well with charismatic leaders, whether a Big Good or Big Bad. On the other hand, he can also portray complete psychopathic madmen very convincingly, probably best known for his role as Sōsuke Aizen of Bleach.

Beware if someone voiced by him seems both good and affable: chances are he will turn out to be a heroic sociopath... and that's assuming he remains a hero at all. Some of the exceptions are the archangel Uriel in the Angel Sanctuary drama CDs, a little emo, but undeniably heroic. Two others are the title character, Exkaiser from Brave Exkaiser, and the title character, Da Garn from The Brave Fighter of Legend Da-Garn.

He's got rather a lot of fangirls, mainly because of his rich, husky baritone, which they find very sexy. Masakazu Morita called him out on this at one live event, where 90% of the audience practically fainted the moment he opened his mouth. Masakazu jokingly asked him to tone it down lest he steal all the attention, and Show apologized, which only made the girls scream louder.

He is married to fellow voice actress Rei Igarashi, who is best known as Evil Matriarch Precia Testarossa and Alpha Bitch Mira Kagami; perfect match. And has a nephew-turn-adopted son, Hideyuki Hayami who also followed their steps and became a voice actor.

He adores Toshihiko Seki, his junior.

Since Hayami took a liking in the "Dr. Hayami" character he created when on a guest appearance in Toshiyuki Morikawa and Nobuyuki Hiyama's Omaera No Tame Darou live talk show, he organized and produced his own Japanese voice actor performance franchise, Super Stylish Doctors Story rivaling Takehito Koyasu's Knight Hunters franchise.

He's unrelated to Saori Hayami (their names aren't written the same in kanji).
