• 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.

Takehito Koyasu is currently the most prolific seiyuu (voice actor) in the business. And when we say prolific, we mean it, with lots of varying roles he can pull off easily. Starting from a Determinator, to a calm, cool, intellectual, sarcastic character (sometimes including a Magnificent Bastard), to a nobleman to just plain comic relief/gay character. He created Weiss Kreuz, and is a part of the Weiss group, alongside the other leads: Shinichiro Miki, Tomokazu Seki, and Hiro Yuki. Weiss seems to indicate that Koyasu is certifiably insane (or at least on some very interesting drugs), but lovably so. He is a Man of a Thousand Voices.

Has an alter-ego named Zazel. Zazel sings Theme song for the CD drama starring Weiss' rivals, Schwarz.

According to Anime News Network, he has THE MOST number of roles in anime. Hell if anything, he has, as of this writing: August 10, 2009, 50 more roles FROM THE SECOND HIGHEST NUMBER OF ROLES.

It shall be noted, also, that he's a Promoted Fanboy. Yep, he was a long-time Mobile Suit Gundam fan before landing the roles of Zechs, Gym and Mu, AND a big Fire Emblem fanboy before becoming Navarre, Lon'qu, Validar, Niles, Lewyn (his favorite character, even!), Lord Pent, Seteth, etc.

Worked on a series of CD dramas called Velvet Under World, which may or may not be a Weiss Kreuz spin off. For the most compelling arguments towards "may," Velvet Underworld is Weiss Kreuz's first opening theme and VUW's main character's name? A.Y.A.

Amongst his roles are:

He seems to be a good friend with Hikaru Midorikawa, and as a result, there's lots of instances where he plays characters who are rivals with Midorikawa's character, usually with Koyasu's character being the instigator of rivalry.
