I'm really enjoying his performance as Britt Reid as well!

I still can't get over how spot on his Donald Duck is.

I can't look at this guy's resume and NOT be impressed.

No disrespect to Robin Williams, but Yamadera is the definitive Genie. No VA in Japan but Yamadera has played Genie. He is the most consistent Genie. Oh, and he's certainly better than Castellaneta for sure.

@AntiSabat666 He contests with Preben Kristensen for the best voice, that's for sure. He's got a lot of passion.

And no respect for Peer Augustinski, but not even he could measure up.

@AntiSabat666 No disrespect for Peer, I mean.

@AntiSabat666 I mean Preben! Preben!

Anyway, I was pleasantly astonished that he was able to mimic a woman's voice perfectly! Even Akira Kamiya (Iago) was confused!

The face on the left is pretty much my reaction to how many roles he has; and so much more!

Amazing range. Hardly any two characters look and sound alike.

@thomwim Well, there's a lot of his Genie in his Lord Business. Didn't recognize him as Batman, though.

@thomwim Also Jacquimo from 'Thumbelina' sounds like Genie but with twice the whimsy.

I like Yamadera's voice, too. He has a great acting range!

@BlankSlate No; it's more than great. It's phenomenal. His energy, his delivery. It's all fantastic.

You know, I really like Koichi Yamadera's voice acting.

But, on Thumbelina, what does Koichi's voice on Jacquimo really sound like to you?
said at 5:28 AM on Tue Aug 12 2014
@VanOsdel 0123 I don't know. I haven't seen it.

@VanOsdel 0123 Now I've seen it. He sounds like Genie but with twice the whimsy.
