Takahiro Sakurai plays a lot of cool and collected characters, sometimes adding a bit of sinister flair to them. He's generally very good, but when you play as many roles as he does, many voices sound like lesser incarnations of some of his best roles. A lot of his cool and collected heroes sound like lesser Clouds, and his villains are all shades of his superior Makishima.

That said, Sakurai is never bad in anything, and whenever he plays against type and is allowed to be flexible/is directed well, he excels. His Rohan Kishibe is phenomenal, and I enjoy his Majime in Fall 2016's The Great Passage.

You'll always have the assurance that a Takahiro Sakurai character will be voiced quite well, but it's great (and somewhat rare) to hear him showcase his wide talent.

Could he perhaps be related to Masahiro Sakurai?

@SmartyBoyboy I don't think so. Their last names are written with different kanji. It's funny that their names sound similar when spoken out loud though.
