Happy Birthday Kappei Yamaguchi! Your Voice as Usopp, Inuyasha, L, Hifumi & Bugs Bunny made you into a Legend! ;)

Generic as they are character-wise, Kappei's performances as Jin Chonshu and Chonrei are actually very good. Other than those two alongside the roles I mentioned last year, he also did a nice job voicing Crash Bandicoot, Wa-Wa the Water Elemental, InuYasha, Shinichi Kudo, and Kaito Kid.

Once again, Happy Birthday, Mitsuo Yamaguchi aka Kappei Yamaguchi!

Happy Birthday Kappei Yamaguchi!

Even in his early 50's, he can still voice so many wacky and youthful characters in anime.

I loved his performances as Sai Sachi, Shigekiyo "Shigechi" Yangu, Mizuki Akabayashi, Feitan, Jin, InuYasha, L, Rattrap, Michelangelo, Snips and Bugs Bunny.

It's also amusing how many times Kappei and Wataru Takagi act alongside each other, almost in like every second project of theirs. They have great chemistry whenever they're working together. Definitely one of my favourite voice acting duos in Japanese.

His voice for Snips kinda reminds me of Rob Paulsen.

@Ad23 In general I think he is more like a Tom Kenny or James Arnold Taylor. He is mostly in youthful/kid roles, but a ton of creatures & cartoony voice, plus some low-key ones like L. (Also, Sonny Strait, who was handpicked to dub him, sounds a lot like those guys too)

I love his voice to death.
He is my cool Shinichi, hot-tempered InuYasha, cute Ranma, hilarious Usopp, and serious L,...

He's incredibly cool as the likes of Retro, Usopp, Shigechi, and L Lawliet, but Kappei Yamaguchi's performance as Feitan in particular blew me away from the moment I heard him speak; his cackling in Episode 97 of HxH has to be heard in order to be believed. I really like his take on Bugs Bunny as well.

It's uncanny how much he looks like Conan O'Brien.

His Bugs Bunny is awesome. A bit lighter than Blanc's, but still memorable enough.

Japanese Usopp voice is Shinichi Kudo and bear-tastic Teddie!?

Mind blown, because now that I think about it his voice is noticeable in all those! Can't unhear!
