Hmm… this is taking longer than I thought. You all know that I’m currently watching Dog Days season 2 but I’ve been delayed for quite some time now because of MOCK EXAMS. I mean dude, WTF?! To cheer myself up, I will do a seiyuu post on one of the most famous seiyuus ever, that’s your cue Takehito Koyasu!
Name: Takehito Koyasu
Japanese: 子安 武人 (Koyasu Takehito)
DoB: May 5 1967
Blood Type: A
Years Active: 1988 – present
Takehito Koyasu is a Japanese voice actor born in in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
Takehito Koyasu is part of the voice actor quartet Weiß consisting of Weiß Kreuz voice castmates Shinichiro Miki, Tomokazu Seki, and Yuuki Hiro. He used to work for Production Baobab but is now the head of T’s Factory, a voice actor company he founded in 1998.
Takehito is known for his deep, smooth voice, which often lands him in roles that are either villains or lonely bishounen. Recently, though (as in the cases of Mitsurugi Hanagata from Saber Marionette J, Ryo Kuroyanagi from Yakitate!! Japan, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, and Kei Itoshiki from Zoku Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei) he has been voicing more and more lively/humorous characters. According to Nakajo Hisaya, the manga artist of the series Hana-Kimi, the character of Masao Himejima was designed with Takehito’s voice in mind; the voice actor ended up voicing this character in the series’ drama CDs.
Takehito is also the creator of the Weiß series, and has authored the manga Weiß Side B. In creating Weiß Kreuz, he was inspired by an old Japanese series called Sure Death.
He often voices under the pseudonym Hayato Jumonji, especially in H anime. He also narrates promotional videos and pre-flight safety videos for StarFlyer.
On September 18 2009, he created velvet underworldseries which is the first drama CD of the series, velvet underworld fragment story#0 “the fool”. In the following month, velvet underworld fragment story#0 “the wheel of fortune” had released as the second drama CD of the series. He called and made the crew of the drama himself. This is said to be another pick of his career after Weiß.
According to the Anime News Network, as of December 2008, he is the most prolific seiyuu in Japan with voice acting roles in 365 anime series.
Takehito’s hobbies are snowboarding, playing video games and writing.
His skills and abilities include baseball, designing signatures, E rank driver, jump rope and photography…this man is crazy talented!
His favourite beverages is milk and brandy. Favourite colours are black, white and blue. Favourite country is Egypt. Favourite animal is the giraffe. Favourite brands of clothing are Fila, Donna Karen, Van and Ships. Favourite date spot is the sea… how romantic! Favourite music group is L’arc~en~Ciel, I love this group too (^^). Favourite TV show is “Trendy” dramas. Favourite flower is the yellow rose. Favourite foods are ebi, tofu and men’s pocky. Favourite idol is Hiroko Mita. Finally, his favourite season is autumn. That was an awful long list!
After I finish my mocks this week, I will then focus on Dog Days season 2. I seriously need to get myself sorted (￣^￣)ゞ
