• 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.

Estuans interius, ira vehementi, Sephiroth!

Toshiyuki Morikawa, born in 1967, is one of the seiyuus who has been around since the old days, and currently still lends his voice to the job. He has quite a huge fanbase too (due in part to being one of the more attractive seiyuu around). He is also the current voice of Sephiroth and attended the same voice acting class with Kotono Mitsuishi. His voice range is versatile, ranging from calm and cool characters to Hot-Blooded young men to psychopathically cold villains. From Badass to Bishonen, he does them all just fine. Regardless of morality, if the character is a White-Haired Pretty Boy, there's a good chance he's voicing them.

Best buds with Nobuyuki Hiyama, went as far as spreading a "Hiyama abandoned me!" mass phone call to other collegues while drunk once (when all Hiyama did was to send this guy a 20-minute taxi ride home by himself), he is also good friends with fellow seiyuu Fumihiko Tachiki and has a lot of co-workings with Nobutoshi Canna and Nozomu Sasaki.
