That was the reason I watched PP that time, was so funny hearing him in it hehe.

And the guy who plays Byakuya in Bleach also plays:
Kaoru Asahina - Junjou Romantica + s2 + Sekaiichi Hatsukoi 2
Ryuuji Gondou - Ikoku Irokoi Romantan
Claude Winchester - Gravitation
Koji Shinomiya - Gakuen Heaven
Yuuki Morimura - Fujimi Orchestra
Kazuhiko Odakara - Kachou no Koi (first main role out of these)
Ranmaru Samejima - Kizuna
Joshua Grant - Marginal Prince (main)
Kai Nagase - Sukisho


You seem to know a LOT about this stuff... Hmm?

Judging you...

Its funny how you label "yaoi voice actor" as if there is a difference .

Alot of the Most popular male seiyuu has done BL titles as well and its a matter of acting and not sexual preference.THe challenge is to make the bed scene sound realistic as possible while recording it in a sound booth with the other seiyuu present .I remember 2 seiyuu explaining that they have to learn to listen to each others breathing and synchronize them.

Of course experience always comes in handy as a sourse of acting , but Not necessarily with another guy and a great deal of imagination.

Some has pointed some of the actors but the two leading senpai seiyuu in world of BL anime and drama CD and game would be Morikawa Toshiyuki san and Miki Shinichiru san from Haru o Daiteita OVA series and the drama CD. NOw those two are very convincing.

Here is a samplePlease dont listen to this if you are a minor.

MOrikawa san has done a lot of roles , one famous role was Sephiroth , right now he is Ryūichirō Isaka
from Sekai Ichii no Hatsukoi, he is Phi Brain , while Miki san is known as Urahara in Bleach and at this season , he is Un-Go, and a recurring role in Gintama

I was in a forum with Morikawa san and a question regarding BL title came up, i remember him giving an answer that it was just acting.I also met him later on in a meet and greet and really wanted to ask him more specific about it but i asked him about other voice acting topic instead, yes ,I am a wuss

I'm in awe that you actually met and conversed with a Japanese voice actor. I know it's not in the realm of impossibility, but still very cool! Have you come across any other seiyu in your endeavors?

Yes Indeed , I have met and talked with Morita san, and Kishio san and Ishikawa san backstage at a con and you cant imaginehow excited I was ,my heart was pounding and the only Japanese I managed to spew out was Hajimemashite and Ureshii , Honto ni Ureshii!!!! I can remember Moritan san smilling back at me , and I took their pics and then I met Morita san again in a different con .. I am not a stalker ..ok... I am so happy to met a few and actually talked to them in my broken Japanese.Morita san was really happy to get meet his fans face to face and able to talk to them.They dont do that in Japan he said. But He is very sweet ...thus the avatar. He sure like the American hug.

I think the first one I met was Tomokazu Seki san who is Suichi in Gravitation.

Anyway It's great how some of these voice actors can actually remember you becuase Morita san remembered me.I must have met Moirkawa san a couple times , he said Gambate to me like a senpai would with my voice acting indeavor. I will never forget tha
t.

I am just amazed how talended these seiyuu are....Those are some of my moments with the seiyuu

When you talk about Morita-san, I take it you're referring to Toshiyuki Morikawa? But who are the Kishio-san and Ishikawa-san you are mentioning?

Nope. Comic con keeps getting sold out.

anyway..
Daisuke KIshio was Kaname in Vampire Knight and he is currently Loki in Fairy tail and Aizawa in Phi Brain.He was Shinobu in Junjuo Romantica.

Hideo Ishijkawa is Ukitake Taicho of Bleach and he was Itachi Uchiha of Naruto, He is also Fullbodi in One PIece. He was in Araiso Private high school as Tokito

Masakazu Morita who is the Ichigo of Bleach, he was in Marginal Prince.
.It was a rare moment because when i met him , Johnny Young Bosh was there. It was awesome.THe two Ichigo.I was lucky since Johnny knows me already, i was able to get their photo together.. i never published the photo out of respect but i gave them a copy

I'm a seiyu otaku of sorts myself but I just wasn't sure who you were referencing when you just gave one name but now you've clarified it! Morita also did a fantastic job as Barnaby Brooks Jr. Plus, Ishikawa voiced Itachi, which combined with Ukitake, is pretty awesome.

I agree Morita san did an awesome great job with that role of Barnaby.I didnt even recognize it was him.

I just realized I posted their pic here CR
This was at Kawaii Kon 09, my hands were shaking when I took this photo, I called Morita san surfer dude
.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=23565214

Also I was rewatching older BL title on youtube and I just realized that my favorite, Midorikawa san who is Lancer in Fate Zero right now did a few uke roles and one is pretty young ie small high school boy . I couldnt imagine him being the uke because he is an awesome strong seme especially in Togainu no Chi in the BLCD game version.

The same goes with Sakurai san who is known for his role as Cloud in FFVII, he was a cute uke in Junjuo Romantica but he is a seme in in Gakuen Heaven and KirePapa where MIdorikawa san is the uk
e.

Then I saw an older anime in the mid 90's where Ishida san is the uke, Ishida san in Gaara in Narut

I always wanted to ask the seiyuu that question becuase some sound really good but I feel embarassed to ask that question during a panel , so the meet and greet would be best , so next time I have a chance I would ask them he hehe.

But I remember when the amercian VO answered a similar question, they said its pretty easy,I guess if you are an adult and you got experience already , all you do is imagine...even though yu have never been with another guy or girl all you do is substitution

Ya, I imagine that most actors/actresses have hard time voicing in adult games/anime series. Would take months or years of training to get the timing and stuff right if it's brand new to them lol.

I remember 2 seiyuu talking about this after a BL drama CD and that they have to learn to listen to each others breathing so they can realy sync their lines and it makes it seem as if they are really close.

Also , some seiyuu can really change their voice. I watched
Araiso Private High School Committe and the lead is both Morikawa san and Ishikawa san. I could not recognise Ishikawa's voice at all.His speaking voice is close to Ukitake Taicho but his character voicefor Tokito is very young.This anime has a very mild BL element .

Yes, there are definitely some voice actors/actresses that can completely change their voices to match their characters in animes. Ami Koshimizu who voices Holo in Spice and Wolf with a haughty mannerism can completely change to a very serious tone such as her character Nanaka in Myself; Yourself.

Rie Kugimiya who often voices "tsundere" characters can change her voice mannerism from Shana from Shakugan no Shana to something soft like Mizore from Rosario + Vampire. All about practice makes perfect though. I've never been to a voice recording studio so not sure how they practice to sync their voices.
