Dude, this guy is pretty much the Mel Blanc of Japan.

You know, seeing that Beerus played the Genie in Japan, it makes me wonder how Robin Williams would have done as Beerus.

@Metabad I would moreso compare Yamadera to Corey Burton, seeing as they both have the knack for very low, crunchy voices.

As well as seemingly being on Disney's shortlist, being in basically everything that can afford them &/or is worth their time.

@huzaifa_ahmed Corey Burton could work well for Beerus too.

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

@BlankSlate Who is that?

@huzaifa_ahmed The Green Hornet, as played by Seth Rogen. Let's just say that Yamadera fit into the role like a hand into a glove.

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

@Kioea For a current-gen comparison, the Troy Baker of Japan?

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.
said at 11:46 AM on Tue Mar 3 2015
@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.
