(黒田崇矢, Kuroda Takaya
?) (April 17, 1967 - ) is a male seiyū and actor from Tokyo. He is affiliated with the Bungaku Company, formely with Mausu Promotion and Aoni Production. His blood type is AB, and he is 183 centimeters (6 feet, 1 inch) tall.
He is best known for his astringent and amorous bass voice, which has usually set him in villainous roles such as the voice of Yaiba in GoGo Sentai Boukenger
. Because of his vocal resemblance to the late Hirotaka Suzuoki, he was chosen to replace Suzuoki as the voice of Starscream in Transformers: Cybertron
as Suzuoki's health deteriorated. On the other hand, he was not chosen to take over Suzuoki's role as Sakaki (known to Western audiences as Giovanni) of Pokemon, Kenta Miyake taking over the role instead.
