Isshin Chiba (千葉 一伸, Chiba Isshin, born June 26, 1968 in Kesennuma, Miyagi, Japan) is a Japanese voice actor who appeared in 35 films since he first started acting in 1990 and is best known for doing the voice of Jin Kazama from the Tekken series.

Biography[edit]

Isshin Chiba was born in Kesennuma, Miyagi, Japan. He graduated from Miyagi Prefecture Kesennuma High School. After graduating from high school, he had the idea to become a stage actor. But, because he had no experience in such extracurricular activities in particular, he attended Katsuma Voice Actor's Academy in Tokyo. He started his career as a voice actor at age 22 in 1990. In 1997, he landed the role for which he is best known, the role of Jin Kazama from the Tekken fighting game series. Starting from Tekken 3, he voiced Jin in all other Tekken games, including crossovers Namco × Capcom, Street Fighter X Tekken, Project X Zone, Project X Zone 2 and adaptations Tekken: Blood Vengeance and the Japanese dub of the live-action Tekken film. This makes Isshin Chiba the sixth single actor playing a videogame character the longest, behind Ed Boon, who voices Scorpion from Mortal Kombat, Takenobu Mitsuyoshi who voices Kage Maru from Virtua Fighter, Shin-ichiro Miki who voices Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter, Joseph D. Kucan, who voices Kane from Command & Conquer and Charles Martinet who voices Mario.
