Best Male Seiyuu

A list of the Japanese Voice Actors that really make their characters come alive.

The Top Ten

1 Kamiya Hiroshi

We can all agree he is AWESOME

He is my favourite seiyuu ever! The voice behind so many of my favourites: Yato, Ranpo, Izaya, Levi,... - Goku02

2 Namikawa Daisuke

Jellal, Ulquiorra and Hisoka are awesome - Goku02

3 Miyano Mamoru

The way he just drawwwls out words is the sexiest

My favourite besides Hiroshi Kamiya. He's the voice of Dazai, Light, Masaomi, Death The Kid, Ling Yao, Okabe,... and so many more interesting characters - Goku02

4 Ishida Akira
5 Koyasu Takehito

He's the most prolific seiyu for anime, drama cd and dubbing, his voice is so special and he can do comedy and drama even with his very seductive voice

ZA WARUDO! KONO DIO DA! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Jun Fukuyama
7 Seki Tomokazu

Fuhaha! Mongrels, surely you cannot forget the voice of the King of Heroes himself! For he is the rules! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Toriumi Kousuke
9 Kaji Yuki
10 Yoshitsugu Matsuoka

He's really shown off what he can do as a seiyuu in recent years. Kirito was arguably his most iconic breakout role, giving us the old-fashioned Nice Guy Hero Protagonist. Kind and humble, but can scream like a man of war in combat. However, if you think Matsuoka is just the generic Harem Protagonist seiyuu, let me tell you something... THINK AGAIN. Roles like Lubbock, Freed, and his most hammy one yet, Betelguese, really show off what Matsuoka can do. He can go from being a stoic and humble VRMMORPG player to THE HAMMIEST ANIME VILLAIN OF 2016. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 Miki Shinichiro
12 Sakurai Takahiro
13 Ono Daisuke
14 Taniyama Kishou
15 Junichi Suwabe

"I am the bone of my sword. Steel is my body and fire is my blood. I have created over a thousand blades. Unknown to Death, Nor Known to Life. Have withstood pain to create many weapons. Yet, those hands will never hold anything. So as I pray, Unlimited Blade Works." These are the words of Suwabe's Archer. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

16 Midorikawa Hikaru
17 Suzumura Kenichi
18 Hirakawa Daisuke
19 Kanna Nobutoshi

Knuckles, Cu Chulainn, Guts; this guy really voices a lot of kickass badasses. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

20 Tetsuya Kakihara

He know's 5 languages!

21 Nakamura Yuuichi
22 Seki Toshihiko
23 Okiayu Ryuotarou
24 Nobuhiko Okamoto
25 Inoue Kazuhiko
26 Jouji Nakata

Rejoice, anime fandom. For we have the voice of Alucard, Kirei Kotomine, and much more to name in a list of deeply-voiced badasses. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

27 Akira Kamiya

The parrot from 'Aladdin' and the beetle from 'Thumbelina' sound so much better in Japanese.

Kinnikuman, Iago, Berkeley Beetle, Kaiketsu Zorori, Kogoro Mouri and many more!

Kinnikuman, Kenshiro, Iago, Berkeley Beetle, Ryo Saeba, Kogoro Mouri... Need I go on?

28 Ryusei Nakao

Can play heroes and villains with ease using that distinctive voice of his.

29 Kōichi Yamadera

That mighty voice he's known for is just one of many. He can also do a woman's voice, Donald Duck and so much more!

31 Nobunaga Shimazaki
32 Kōji Yusa
33 Kenta Miyake
