Matsuoka: loading. Ready? Fight.

One of the more prominent Japanese voice actors making a name for himself who started cropping up during the 2000s, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka [松岡 禎丞] (born September 17, 1986 in Hokkaido) first debuted as Shouta Mitarai of The Idolmaster. However, it wasn't until the early 2010s when his roles started to increase, particularly Sword Art Online's Kirito. Due to the success of SAO, he became typecast as Nice Guy harem protagonists or vanilla heroes (or Stock Light-Novel Hero), earning him the title of the "Harem King" in the anime community.

He won the best lead actor at the 10th annual seiyuu awards. As of 2019, he holds the current official Guinness World Record for the most unique sound bites provided by a voice actor, exceeding 10,000 words in Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Memoria Freese.
