He's putting his career on hold to seek medical treatment for his throat. He said he's hoping to return before the end of the year, so hopefully it's nothing that serious :(

@NCZ Well that shouldn't be to bad as long as he gets better. It does suck that they'll have to recast Reiner Braun, possibly Yamato Ishida, Michael in High School DxD (depending on how long the wait for season 4 will be), Fumikage Tokoyami, and possibly Iairon (also depending on how long the wait for season 2 will be, and if he shows up in what will be season 2 (I haven't read the manga so I don't know if he shows up in that stuff for sure or not)). Lets hope he gets well soon.

Super late response, but as of a few months after that original comment he has been back in full force!

@NCZ That's a relief. I just hope they didn't have to recast Daryun, Robin and Reiner...

Happy Birthday, Yoshimasa Hosoya! From what I've heard of him, he's striking to say the least. Right now I really like Hosoya's performances as Fumikage Tokoyami, Kazuichi Soda, Musashi, Robin/Reflet (Male), Michael, Tenga Onigawara, Tamaki Katagiri, Ginti, Kuraudo Kurashiki, Iairon, Kazu, Wave, Lance/Wataru, and Quattro/IV.

For someone his age, his voice is REALLY deep.

@MHUltimate2013DW i know, right? His voice has that Tomokazu Sugita-esque quality to it.

@Jared Delgado Speaking of which, Matthew Mercer is the same age & has a similar voice...as well as to Sugita, who is also in his mid-30's.

Hosoya just looks really young.

@huzaifa_ahmed Actually, Hosoya's vocal range is pretty versatile. He's capable of adjusting his voice to voice younger characters, but his distinct baritone voice is what makes him very recognizable within the Japanese voice acting community.

His vocal range is very comparable to Xander Mobus. Both Xander and Hosoya are both known to vocal younger characters, yet their deeper baritone is what makes them very noticeable.

@Dark Paladin X I can see where you're coming from, Xander's a younger dude w/a deeper voice, but (probably because I havent heard much of Xander?) I dont hear that sort of range of him. Matt is in his mid-30s, just like Hosoya, & has what sounds like a verdi baritone voice. Xander has some great resonance, kind of like Jamieson Price (?), but his voice is a lot higher & smaller than any of these guys. That Smash 4 narrator work, though, you couldnt tell from that.
