  • 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.

YES, YOUR MAJESTY! Jun Fukuyama is a very interesting seiyuu, when it comes to his role history. At first, you won't notice him much. He usually plays typical straightforward heroes, or someone with a childish personality (something of The White Prince, or Idiot Hero). These examples include Albert de Morcerf of Gankutsuou, Kyle Dunamis of Tales of Destiny 2 , or Touga Tenkuuji of Gravion. Even when he tries deviating a bit as Yumichika Ayasegawa in Bleach... he doesn't get a lot of fame.

Until Code Geass that is.

In Code Geass, he got deliberately cast against type as the Magnificent Bastard Lelouch Lamperouge. As the series garnered a lot of popularity, so did Fukuyama's career, where he got to deliver the perfect performance of a Magnificent Bastard. This role led him to be one of the most famous seiyuus of the current age, and lands him lots of roles, specifically those with Magnificent Bastard qualities.

On the other hand he has lent his voice for many romantic comedy series throughout his entire voice acting career, sometimes as the male lead. Examples include Takaaki Kono, Keita Kawahira, and Kei Takishima.

After his success in Code Geass he went off to be a complete pervert using his Lelouch voice in Akikan and Sora Kake Girl. He also goes on to play the humble merchant Lawrence in Spice and Wolf. And currently, he's on his third character with some form of Evil Eye with Ryner in The Legend of the Legendary Heroes.

A popular Fan Nickname for him was "Mr. Cellphone Spoiler", on account of him using his cell phone to access 2ch and posting Code Geass spoilers "anonymously". Odd- Todd Haberkorn, who he has shared a few roles with, coldcalls his voice actor friends at convention panels...

Notable roles by Jun Fukuyama:

More here. Also, it should be noted that Brad Swaile's career seems to be mimicking Jun Fukuyama's career. He is also often compared to Johnny Yong Bosch by many fans since four of his roles crosses paths with Johnny.
