• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Describe Hikaru Midorikawa here or I will kill you.

Hikaru Midorikawa is one of the well-known seiyuus in the business, though not as prolific (according to Anime News Network). He's most known for his distinctly cold voice, best suited for Bishonen characters, which often lands him the roles of The Lancer, The Smart Guy, The Rival, Deadpan Snarker, etc. He occasionally breaks the routine, though, and goes along to voice silly characters just as good. But, seriously, even if he's voicing silly characters, there will be moments of Angst for his character, so long as the character isn't completely a minor one.

Truly a Man of a Thousand Voices.

Roles comes very cheap. Especially Hikaru Midorikawa's.

(For some reason, the characters he voiced has a tendency to be captured and then restrained/tied up)

Though born in 1968 and already married, he manages other activities other than being a seiyuu, such as website managing (he's got one) and playing video games. Apparently, he's a big fan of Super Robot Wars, having a blog entry on the SRW site, contacts Banpresto and happily does extra lines for his characters (especially Masaki) for free, and usually becomes a beta tester for the games. He also have a habit to turn the characters he voices into one man armies in the SRWs (namely Heero and Masaki; he'll probably do the same to Xingke when he shows up in Z2, or Asakim in case he's recruitable)

He's friends with several other seiyuus like Ryotaro Okiayu, who also somehow shares a bit of his SRW passion (he voices Raidiese F. Branstein) and sometimes plays together. He was also a member of a music group with Nobutoshi Canna, but his greatest, most known relationship with other actors is definitely Takehito Koyasu. They often play roles that rivals each others, and Koyasu has once teased that Midorikawa's voice sounded cute; on the other hand, Midorikawa teased that Koyasu's voice sounded sexy.

Well these tropes are just Hikaru Midorikawa's style

Mission Complete.
