He's relentlessly entertaining as Joseph Joestar. Richard Epcar is great as him too, but I think Ishizuka is a little more charming and unique (though Epcar has only had a few episodes to work with to be fair).

He has many great roles in anime across the board. But he has also done a very good job as Heihachi & Mr Satan. He did a great job filling Daisuke Gori's shoes & I think he's the best replacement we could have got for Gori (RIP)

@Shaun Ince Tessho Genda, Kenta Miyake, Ryuzaburo Otomo, Shozo Iizuka, & (while alive) Kenji Utsumi would have worked as well, & I do believe they've shared characters/dub actors as well.

In particular I think Miyake would have been the best Satan replacement, & Otomo as Heihachi. That being said, the voice *itself* isnt as big a deal as the performance. Just to me, as a non-casting director, non-Japanese speaker...I think that certain VA's may have been closer voice-matches.

If Gori had passed, say, during the Buu arc, then definitely someone directly closest to his own voice would've picked Satan up. But then again, acting>voice, right?

Happy Birthday Unsho Ishizuka!

One of my all time favourite seiyuus, great at playing tough guys and old men whether they be serious, wacky or both.

My favourite roles of his include Joseph Joestar, Jet Black, Manzou "The Saw", B.D. Neon, Lehm Brick, Silas, Professor Oak and his narration on Pokemon.
