Tōru Furuya (古谷 徹, Furuya Tōru, born July 31, 1953 in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture) is a Japanese actor, voice actor and narrator.[1][2] As a child, he was a member of Gekidan Himawari,[2] a children's acting troupe. He is currently employed by the talent management firm Aoni Production.[1][2]

Furuya is most known for the roles of Amuro Ray (both in the original Mobile Suit Gundam and its following Gundam sequels), Hyūma Hoshi (Star of the Giants), Pegasus Seiya (Saint Seiya), Yamcha (Dragon Ball), Kyōsuke Kasuga (Kimagure Orange Road), and Tuxedo Mask (Sailor Moon). He considers these roles as his most important roles.[3]

He also used a pseudonym Noboru Sōgetsu (蒼月 昇, Sōgetsu Noboru) in the cast of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 for Ribbons Almark's role (but used his real name in the narration role). Both the narration role and Ribbons Almark were Furuya's first role in a non-Universal Century Gundam series.
