• 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 Tomokazu-GAUNTLET HADES!-Sugita here, and do it in an old-fashioned way.

One of the seiyuus who went from virtually unnoticed to VERY POPULAR thanks to the anime juggernaut that is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, where he voiced Kyon. Before that, some people might recognise him as Hideki from Chobits, but, well that's quite in the past. After his performance as Kyon, he started displaying a wide range of voices, making him one of the best and most revered seiyus in the business today. His forte is most likely the Deadpan Snarker type.

He also has some sort of rivalry with Tomokazu Seki, just because they have the same given name. They are in fact managed by the same agency Atomic Monkey which Seki is a founding member of.

He's apparently very "hardcore" according to the Blue Radio podcast. Plus it's known, from various radio shows and interviews, that he's also a VERY keen gamer and anime Otaku, coming out with references to anime, manga and games even when nobody besides him knows what he's talking about. This is why he's nicknamed 'Freedom Sugita' by fans. And no, he is not doing this because he's influenced by his role in Gintama. He just happened to be awesome like that. Occasionally, a fellow seiyu or two will catch the references and continue the conversation from there.

He's notable that for a few times, he made some spot on Norio Wakamoto impressions, once in Bururaji, again in Gintama and later when he, along with Yuuichi Nakamura and Takahiro Sakurai, do so while playing a Yu Yu Hakusho Genesis fighting game, all picking Wakamoto's character. And narrating it. Later he does it again in Sket Dance.

Now available as a GPS

Him and Yuuichi Nakamura also host a program called Tokyo Encounter where they play video games and share some trivia. And also goof off. That Wakamoto impersonation? It's from that show.
