One of my favourite 2000s voice actors, he got a ridiculously hilarious deep hammy voice for his ridiculously over the top and memorable characters

I remember after SSB4 came out he was on a show with Sakurai. He was happy that Takamaru was in the game and he got to play him but I wonder how he felt about voicing two blue-haired swordsmen who got snubbed from the playable roster.

Maybe Takamaru will get his day in SSB Switch...

THE voice of Gintoki, of course he has other great roles. almost like a new Norio Wakamoto to me. either way a Baritone voice fo badass. (even if some of his still young voice do not match that deep voice sometimes)
he is still a awesome, and puts really the heart in performance. liek Ragna, Gintoki, and Kyon.
the msot suprising role from him was of course Leonardo Da Vinci though.

Either his the Japanese counterpart to Crispin Freeman, or Matthew Mercer, or a hybrid of both? You decide. I feel that he leans more to Crispin.

@Jared Delgado I was thinking that Troy Baker or perhaps Nolan North makes a better comparison. I've always thought that he sounds like Troy, & his delivery & performances are quite Nolan "quippy" esque. I've thought that Sugita could do Hawkeye quite well, & that Nolan could be Joseph, or someone like Kyon or Kaz Miller. I mean as it is, Kaz & Kyon's English VA's sound similar to Troy & Nolan to an extent.

I also think that Sugita is comparable in terms of how popular & well-recognized he is for a VA - he has over 1 million Twitter followers. & Troy & Nolan have around 100-150k, which is pretty high for a VA that isnt Japanese.

To me, there is absolutely no question that his best role is Gintoki Sakata. Sure, Tomokazu is great in virtually everything, but you can really tell that Tomokazu puts a lot of effort, heart, and soul into voicing Gintoki and bringing him to life.

Happy Birthday Tomokazu Sugita!

Definitely one of the funniest and coolest sounding seiyuu's ever.

I think my favourite role of his is as the young Joseph Joestar in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency, easily my favourite Jojo and he definitely steals the show (along with Stroheim), almost of all Joseph's lines are quotable and memorable due to Sugita's awesome delivery and he's proven to be quite versatile in the role considering he was also initially cast as the older Joseph too. While I prefer Unsho Ishizuka more as the older voice, this is a great example of Sugita's range.

I also loved his performances as Kyon, Yuichi Aizawa, Ragna The Bloodedge, Chrom, Gotou Hidenori and Zen.

Also Shout Out: To His Pretty Awesome Performance as Drift in RID's Japanese dub, he is a great fit for the role and feels like a solid voice match to Eric Bauza's rendition. While I wouldn't say he's a complete miscast as Starscream, I did enjoy his take for what it was.

He's great as Chrom. It's the only role of his I've really heard but the man does it pretty damn well I'd say!

If by some hope they continue Marvel Anime.
This is who should play Deadpool. He'd be perfect for the merc with the mouth.

@Spiralpower1620 I'm pretty sure Shinichiro Miki would be the proper choice for Deadpool.
said at 9:28 PM on Fri Nov 21 2014
@Jared Delgado
Why I think this guy would be a good choice is he is known to do crazy awesome characters who occasionally break the 4th wall really well.
I.E. Gintoki, David, Graham Specter, Joseph Joestar and so on. Though he may be a bit too deep is my only drawback.

@Spiralpower1620 Exactly, his voice is a bit too deep.

@Jared Delgado I was thinking Jun'ichi Kanemaru due to his English skills. It's like hearing Sonic on crack. XD
