He rocks as Yamcha, Abel, and Tuxedo Mask!

I can't wait to hear him as Adroc Thurston in Eureka Seven Hi Evolution!

Legendary VA. Amazing as Yamcha, Amuro Ray, Ribbons Almark and Tuxedo Mask.

It's amazing how he still sounds youthful in his sixties. He also doesn't even look like he's in sixties.

Happy Birthday Toru Furuya!

Definitely one of the best seiyuu's of the 80's for sure.

His work in the Gundam franchise alone is iconic, as its original protagonist Amuro Ray in the Universal Century and more recently as Ribbons Almark, the main villain in Gundam 00. I absolutely love casting like this, having the original protagonist voice an eventual big bad, this kind of casting just works so well.

I also love his performance as Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Mask in Sailor Moon, he's very cool in the role.

I agree with huzaifa_ahmed, in many ways he was the Yuki Kaji in back in the day, and of course he's still voicing Amuro Ray, and that is awesome.

This guy was like the 80's Yuki Kaji.

Great job as Yamcha (IMO the best voice), Amuro, Tokita, Sabo, Casshern, Seiya, Ribbons, & narration for Gundam 00.

The one and only Dr. Tokita. Though Martin Halm comes close.
