Happy Birthday, Keiji Fujiwara! He's a great seiyuu generally speaking and one that people ought to take note of if they want to introduce themselves to anything subbed. My favorite Fujiwara performances at the moment include Gate, Esidisi, Axel, Deldro Brody, Yo Shikada, Leorio Paladiknight, Mewtwo, Tetsu "Papa" Asahina, and Silver Karasu/Kagi Tanaka.

Happy Birthday Keiji Fujiwara!

He was one of the first major seiyuu's I started to take notice of when I started getting into watching subs and appreciating the Japanese side of voice acting.

My favourite role of his is a tie between Father Shiro Fujimoto in Blue Exorcist and Leorio Paladiknight in Hunter X Hunter. I seem to notice that he's often cast as gruff yet wacky guys with glasses, since Maes Hughes also fits into this category too. His character in World Trigger also looks very similar as well.

I also loved his performances as Ali Al-Saachez/Gary Biaggi, Holland Novak, Esidisi, Kinnosuke Kuzuhara, Ryuzen Goto, Aldebaran, Deldro Brody and Mewtwo.

and much like other great seiyuu's like Koichi Yamadera and Toshiyuki Morikawa, Fujiwara is one of the many greats dubbing western shows too.

I really love Fujiwara's works in the Transformers franchise. He does a surprisingly great job as Megatron in Prime and in the Q Transformers series. His Grimlock in Animated is also rather fitting, and he was a good choice to play Dinobot in Beast Wars despite how bad that dub is.

I also really love his take on Iron Man and The Joker. His Joker especially is definitely one of the best live-action dubbed performances I've heard to date.

@Autovolt " I seem to notice that he's often cast as gruff yet wacky guys"

Would you maybe compare him to John DiMaggio in that regard? Especially when you consider that both have voiced the Joker?

Congrats at hitting 300 roles here Fujiwara-san. I also hope he recovers from his medical issues too.

he sounds really close to RDJ's Iron Man.

My favorite Japanese voice actor. Surprised he's not in the top 10 most viewed Japanese VAs seeing how prolific and talented he is!

@FUNiman Upon seeing the show Rainbow, Ryuuji is now my favorite role of his. He put everything he had into every syllable and had me all misty-eyed...
