Such an underrated voice actor. Really loved his performances in Sword of the Stranger, Gundam 00, Inuyasha, Black Lagoon and X-Men Evolution.

I've just seen Gintama and he's perfect as Hijikata.

Happy Birthday Michael Adamthwaite!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Nanashi/No Name (Sword of the Stranger)
2.) Ribbons Almark (Gundam 00)
3.) Byakuya of the Dreams (InuYasha: The Final Act)
4.) Ginji Matsuzaki (Black Lagoon)
5.) Justin Hammer/Titanium Man (Iron Man: Armored Adventures)
6.) Colossus (X-Men Evolution)
7.) Truffle (Trouble Chocolate)
8.) Yzak Joule (Gundam SEED)
9.) Balder (Hulk Vs.)
10.) Lugnutz (Transformers: Cybertron)

While I did really want Michael as Gintoki, him voicing Toshiro Hijikata in Gintama in the next best thing, I only saw a few episodes but man was Michael hilarious as him, especially in the gender bent arc, him playing the female Hijikita was perfect, pretty much playing him as a effeminate Jay.

It's also great he was in the World Trigger dub too.

I have only watched one episode of the Gintama dub so far, but his Hijikata cracks me up.

Wow I just realised Michael has this trope of playing a person who has black hair and weilds a sword, Im serious.

The Hero- No Name
The Villian- Byakuya
The Comedian- Hijikata

To be fair, I cant blame him if he gets casted in these roles those are some of his best roles in anime

having watch gintama recently, i really love his hijikata everytime that guy appears on screen i burst out laughing. i have trouble between choosing hijikata or gintoki as my fav character who ironically are voiced by michaels.

i really hope ocean decides to dub more gintama material just to hear more hijikata from him cus he gives me a good laugh everytime.

Michael one talented dude he like the Vancouver Travis willingham he great as Jay, Thor, Namor, Colossus, Justin hammer, Yzak joule, Ribbons allmark, Byakuya, Hijikata, and No Name

@batcool I think Michael Adamwaithe actually sounds more like Phil LaMarr or Marc Diraison actually. Paul Dobson might be the closest thing I've heard out of Vancouver, to Travis. Mark Acheson might be too deep & also much more gravelly. I'd like to say Mark Gibbon is the closest timbre-wise, but he sounds too...cartoony? & not smooth enough. Although with that said, Gibbon could easily match Patrick Seitz or Dave Boat who sound similar to Travis, just less composed & more goofy-sounding.

As much as I wanted him to voice Gintoki, him being cast as Hijikata is the next best thing. He's perfect for the role and was especially hilarious in the genderbent arc.

He is without a doubt one of the most talented and underrated VA's in the Ocean talent pool. The guy has a fantastic deep voice and can work perfectly for heroes and villains equally just the same.

I think his finest role to date is as Nanashi in Sword of the Stranger. I had heard nothing but good things about this film so I gave it a watch months ago and was just blown away by the whole thing. Nanashi's character and performance in particular. He's a perfect take on the aloof drifter ronin archetype. Michael's voice was just perfect for Nanashi, a very cool aloof but still passionate and very brotherly. He reminded me so much of Ted Cole in the role. It's easily one of my favourite dub performances I've heard.

Then there's Ribbons Almark and his narration in Gundam 00 as a close runner up, I loved everything about his take on Ribbons. There is just something Michael brings to a devious and cunning pretty boy villain. It helps that Ribbons is a legit magnificent bastard mastermind.

I also loved his performances as Justin Hammer, Namor the Sub-Mariner, Thor, Balder, Colossus, Ginji Matsuzaki, Raye Penbar, Anthony Rester, Yzak Joule, Dr. Hikari, Lugnutz and Byakuya of the Dreams.

I think it's pretty great he's been getting more work as of late, also I think he would make for an awesome voice for Yamcha in Ocean's dub of DBZ Kai.

I spent earlier this week watching the dub of the anime Trouble Chocolate and oh man was Michael hilarious as the rich boy bishonen Truffle. He really seemed to play him perfectly snooty and hopelessly in love.

"I'm Too Rich For This." XD

I also really liked his Arashiyama in Kurozuka as well.

Also in the past couple of months, it occurred to me that if Ocean is indeed doing the dub for Gintama. I personally think Michael Adamthwaite would be terrific as Gintoki Sakata. Michael's proven that he can be cool, nonchalant and still be funny at the same time. I think he'd be perfect in the role. Though Only Time Will Tell.

Anyways regardless if he does voice Gintoki or not....

Happy Birthday Michael Adamthwaite!

Happy birthday, Michael.

Raye Penbar is perhaps his best role IMO.

@Fulgore2005 Have you seen Sword of the Stranger? I personally think that Nanashi (AKA No Name) is the best role of his that I've seen. Plus the movie itself is excellent and pretty underrated.
said at 3:41 PM on Fri Nov 14 2014
@Fulgore2005 I remember I loved his performance as Dr. Hikari as a kid.

That said, his work as Nanashi/No Name is fantastic as well. He made for a pretty good Thor as well, as brief as that role was.

@PsychicVoiceSpy @Metabad I've not long seen SotS, and I do agree that Nasashi/No Name is a great role of his.

I also got around to watching Gundam Seed/Destiny and Gundam 00. And I think he is great as Yzak Joule and Ribbons Almark.
