Tomokazu Seki (関 智一 Seki Tomokazu?, born September 8, 1972) is a Japanese voice actor, stage actor, vocalist.[1] He formerly worked for Haikyou and is the co-founder of Atomic Monkey.

About[edit]

He landed his first role in 1993 anime Mobile Suit Victory Gundam as Tomache Massarik. Some of his most notable roles include Shinichi Chiaki from Nodame Cantabile, Gilgamesh from Fate/stay night, Rob Lucci from One Piece, Gundam characters Domon Kasshu and Yzak Joule (from G Gundam and Gundam Seed, respectively), Kyo Sohma from Fruits Basket, Ichiro Miyata from Hajime no Ippo, Haru Glory from Rave Master, Chichiri from Fushigi Yuugi, Toya Kinomoto (Sakura Kinomoto's older brother) from Cardcaptor Sakura, Van Fanel from The Vision of Escaflowne and Ken Hidaka from Weiss Kreuz, alongside Hiro Yūki, Takehito Koyasu, and Shinichiro Miki. Koyasu and Miki, along with Seki, have also voiced in Initial D and Gravitation, and Nobuo Terashima in Nana, as well.

His most recent roles are Ryūki Shi in Saiunkoku Monogatari, and in Lucky Star as the recurring guest character, Meito Anizawa.

He is considered very versatile in his industry and has portrayed a wide variety of characters, ranging from comical to dramatic. Very often, the characters he voiced have very comical sides to their seriousness, such as Sagara Sousuke in the Full Metal Panic series, Kenichi Shirahama in Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi, Toji Suzuhara in Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Yoshimitsu from Tekken.

He also starred in the 2010 live-action film, Wonderful World, with fellow voice actors, Mamoru Miyano, Tomokazu Sugita, Rikiya Koyama, Yuka Hirata, Showtaro Morikubo and Daisuke Namikawa, who is also the director of the film.[2] Before this, he launches Gekidan Herohero Q Company, his own dramatic company, and is also active as a stage actor.
