Default Favourite Akira Kamiya role

Akira Kamiya is such a versatile Japanese VA. Every time you see him he's got a very different voice on, unless he uses the same voice twice.

My favourite role from him is Kinnikuman/Suguru Kinniku, followed very closely by Iago (whom he voiced in all three films and the TV show. Evidence is right here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isGB...IruIymZ3g443wg , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwOj...IruIymZ3g443wg , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH703vCyqT0)

Oh, definitely Kenshiro. He mastered that role like nobody's business and his battle screams are downright iconic. "ATATATATATATATATATA!"

While I've never heard these other roles from him, I do find it quite interesting that he voiced both James Bond AND Iago. I mean, with James Bond I could sort of see why he was cast in the role, but Iago was just COMPLETELY out of left field. I was baffled when I learned that.

And wow, both Roy Focker and Garlic Jr. as well...the more roles that I learn he has, the more versatile I realize he really is.

On a side note, I heard his performance in Ringing Bell. He was incredible.

Tomoe by far.

I haven't seen Fist of the North Star so I can't comment on Kenshiro but I assume he's great in that role.

He's good as Kenshiro. I personally don't think it's anything spectacular, just a good display of his voice range.
