    This man is extremely talented and can do voice ranging from hyper high pitched and almost girly (Italy from APH and Fai from TRC), to creepy and vicious (Hisoka from HXH 2011), to creepy and emotionless (Ulquiorra from Bleach) and even deep low voices from strict characters (Kazura from Senkou no Night Raid). But the voice is just one part of his skills. He also has what many voice actors nowadays don't which is talent. You can feel the emotion in his words and tell he really transforms into his character. If he plays a part in an anime than I definitely will give it a try and while I tend to like to watch things subbed and then dubbed too I have never found one dub actor that outdid him (especially not Vic as Fai...ew.) I love this man and his work so I always look forward to hearing him in new animes and varying roles.moreless
