Definitely a highlight performance in JoJo. He puts a lot of energy into that role.

Out of curiosity is this guy a Fire Emblem fan? Because he's been in every single game since Awakening and I'd say that both Lon'qu and Navarre both have a pretty good chance at making it in Warriors.

Happy 50th Birthday Takehito Koyasu!

My favourite male seiyuu turns 50 on this glorious day.

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Dio Brando (Jojo's Bizzare Adventure)
2.) Deadpool (Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers)
3.) Roswaal L. Mathers (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-)
4.) Mu La Flaga (Gundam SEED)
5.) Excalibur (Soul Eater)
6.) Ryoji "Ranka" Fujioka (Ouran High School Host Club)
7.) Lord Ilpalazzo (Excel Saga)
8.) Rezo the Red Priest (Slayers)
9.) Talisman (Psycho Pass)
10.) Dalzollene (Hunter X Hunter)

I think it's awesome he's now the go to Japanese voice for The Joker in Batman. I bet Takehito Koyasu can make Jared Leto more tolerable.

How many breads have you eaten in your life? Happy Birthday, Takehito Koyasu! Aside from the roles I mentioned months ago, he also did great as Dalzollene, Lon'qu, Fauder, Zero, Neuro Nogami, Pesche Guatiche, Kazuo Matayoshi, and... Wade Wilson/Deadpool. Yeah, DIO is the merc with a mouth, and he can even perform the SHINGO KICK!

This guy is essentially a Japanese mix of Eric Vale and J Michael Tatum.

@darknessflamegeass I was thinking he sounds a lot like Trevor Devall...

His Dio Brando is undeniably epic, though the guy also deserves some cred making for an entertaining Shingo Yabuki. Adding to that, Koyasu's really good as Zato-1/Eddie, Shigeru Aoba, Excalibur, Adam Blade, and Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.

Happy Birthday Takehito Koyasu!

Without a doubt my favourite male seiyuu ever.

His performance as Dio Brando in Jojo's Bizzare Adventure is truly one of the greatest performances I've ever heard. He's so wickedly evil and glorious hammy he's fantastic.

I also loved his performances as Zechs Marquisse, Mu La Flaga, Excalibur, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, Lord Ilpalazzo, Ryoji "Ranka" Fujioka, Rezo the Red Priest, Riser Phoenix, Kido Asato, Claude, Talisman, Dalzollene and Deadpool.

I really enjoyed his performance as Roswaal L. Mathers in Re:Zero. It feels like if Dio Brando was playing Hisoka in HXH and it just gives me chills in all the right way.

Definitely looking forward to a second of Re:Zero, to see more of his performance as Roswaal. From what I've read up about the character, he's definitely got a lot more going on and I can't wait to see that all animated and voiced.

Meanwhile this week, I've discovered that Takehito Koyasu has taken on some new dubbing roles.

He's now voicing Ratchet in Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015)'s Japanese dub.

and he is also the Japanese dub voice of Jared Leto's Joker in Suicide Squad.

I'm very much interested in hearing how he pulls off both characters. Ratchet in particular, since that is a definite major playing against type role for him, the cantankerous yet heroic Autobot Medic.

@Autovolt Dude, I can't believe Takehito Koyasu is voicing the Joker. That's perfect casting. Especially when you consider Dio.

There needs to be more love for Shingo Yabuki. He's hilarious as the character. And it's not his usual role too.
