Kōji Yusa (遊佐 浩二, Yusa Kōji, born August 12, 1968) is a freelance[1] Japanese voice actor and narrator, born and raised in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto. He is best known for his roles in Choja Raideen (as Raideen Owl), the Sonic series (as Shadow the Hedgehog), Bleach (as Gin Ichimaru), Battle Vixens (as Zuo Ci and Xu Huang), Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro (as Eiji Sasazuka), Zettai Karen Children (as Kyōsuke Hyōbu) and Kamen Rider Den-O (as Urataros).

Biography[edit]

When Yusa was a child, he lived near the Kyoto Racecourse (Yodo, Fushimi-ku, Kyoto). As a gift for entering junior high school, he received a boombox and listened to radio dramas, which inspired him to become a voice actor.[4] When he was in college, he majored in Japanese language studies. After graduating from college, he went through the 7th class of Katsuta Voice Actor Academy and made his debut as a voice actor in 1993 (at the age of 25). His anime debut work was The Brave of Gold Goldran. At the time of his debut, he belonged to Office Kaoru,[5] and since leaving the company, he has been working freelance.[1] He mainly works as a dubbing artist for anime, drama CDs, and foreign films, and often does narration for information programs. In addition to his main job as a voice actor, he has been working more and more on events and radio, and his personal side has become more widely known.

Yusa won the Synergy Award for Kamen Rider Den-O at the 2nd Seiyu Awards.[6]

He married voice actress, Kanako Mitsuhashi in 2007 and he announced on his radio program that they divorced in 2012.[3][7]
