Oh hey, he had a birthday. Happy delayed one I suppose. I loved his work as Tseng in FF7, Archer in Fate, Greed, Terrence D'Arby, Fukuda in Bakuman, KH2 Announcer, & I'm eager to watch Yuri On Ice sometime soon.

I really also think this guy sounds quite like Troy Baker or Travis Willingham.

Happy Birthday Junichi Suwabe!

One of the most versatile seiyuu's in the industry, able to play just about any kind of character.

I really love his performance as Archer in the Fate franchise. Such an epic voice and performance.

I also loved his performances as Shota Aizawa, Sirzechs Lucifer, Terence Trent D'Arby, Victor, Vega, Maguro Kurokami, Worick Arcangelo, Relius Clover and Colress.

Steel is my body and fire is my blood. Happy Birthday, Junichi Suwabe! The man has a distinctively suave voice that normally tends to land him the role of a cool and no-nonsense Mr. Fanservice. However, he's also been able to pull off archetypes like Large Hams, absolute psychopaths, perverts, and butt monkeys during his career. Pretty much a great seiyuu in general tbh.

So far my favorite Suwabe roles are Maguro Kurokami, Dandy, Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, Shota Aizawa, Undertaker, Lars Alexandersson, Takashi Komuro, Venom, Vega (Balrog), Sirzechs Lucifer, and Terence Trent D'Arby.

I wish Junichi Suwabe got more roles like Dandy, Life Sexy, or Victor. Almost all of his roles are the same type of character and have the same type of voice as Archer (which is his best role, don't get me wrong) and it gets *really* tiring to hear literally Archer in almost every anime I see him in. He's a talented VA, but his Archer voice is more in demand, which I find a shame.

@SNaG while Archer is his most recognizable type, he uses different voice quite often, actually: Itami from the Gate (and Tetsuo from the upcoming Demi-chan wa Kataritai), Benkei from Warriors Orochi series, Yamada from Kiznaiver, Vergo from One Piece, Otori from Starmyu, Shang Bu Huan froom Thunderbolt Fantasy, etc.

@AntonKutovoi Oh yeah, he occasionally has a hapless older guy (as in, mid-20's to 30's) voice. I don't really recall Shang Bu Huan falling into a different voice category, it seemed like so many of his other Archer-esque roles.

Haven't seen the others you mentioned except Gate and Kiznaiver. I've tried to wipe Gate from my memory, though you bring up a good point on Kiznaiver. It's just that these are the exception, rather than the rule. That's just a small fraction of his roles, even if you control for reprisals.

@SNaG here's Benkei (moree hammy than Suwabe's usual voice):

here's Vergo (much deeper than usual Suwabe's vocie):

Here's Otori (kinda like Victor's voice):

@SNaG I sort of think he sounds like Troy Baker at times, somewhat deeper but still possibly the sort of manly-man voice that certain directors may enjoy spamming everywhere, so to speak.
