Japanese voice actor Tomokazu Seki is celebrating his 49th birthday today, September 8.
Seki is a veteran seiyuu (voice actor) who has been in the industry since the 1990s. With his deep voice, he often portrayed powerful, reliable, masculine characters such as Gilgamesh from the Fate series, Shinya Kougami from Psycho-Pass, and Toya Kinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura. But with his extensive range he has also demonstrated the ability to voice goofy characters such as Hashida Itaru from Steins;Gate and Panda from Jujutsu Kaisen.
Currently: Seki's deep, powerful voice continues to give life to Sanemi Shinazugawa (the Wind Pillar) from the hit series Demon Slayer. He also voices Lü Bu from Record of Ragnarok.
Did you Know? Tomokazu Seki is often confused with fellow voice actor Tomokazu Sugita (who was also previously affiliated with Atomic Monkey). They have co-starred in several anime in the past such as Chobits (with Seki as Hiromu Shinbo and Sugita as Hideki Motosuwa) and The Mystery of Ceres (with Seki as Alec and Sugita as Kagami Mikage).
