Which is the first role that you know from Okamoto-san?

Mine would be either Gau from Nabari no Oh, Shin Kanzato from Persona: Trinity Soul, or Yoichi Karasuma from Asu no Yoichi. These three anime were aired about the same year and I didn't know Okamoto-san that well.

Usui from Kaichou wa Maid-sama is actually the one that got me hooked, next to Acce. from To Aru Majutsu no Index series.
I Two Syaorans from Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE and TRC!!!

John Brown(Ghost Hunt:D) & that was in 2006>_< but i didn't take much notice to him at that time... as John wasn't my fav. char. in the show xD(& he didn't have much screentime)

after that was Shin( Persona: Trinity Soul) & Gau(Nabari no Ou) this is when i started to like him:P then Accelerator(To Aru Majutsu no Index) sealed the deal xD

& well, after Accelerator he voiced even more characters that i liked: Usui(Kaichou wa Maid-sama) Tohru(Shiki), Makoto(Yumeiro Patissiere) & now Rin(Ao no Exorcist)

so yeah, that's how he became my fav. VA xD

I heard his voice for the first as acce .. he was great,& hysterical xD
but at that time I wasn't interested in knowing the voice actors (・o・)
Then I heard him in Yumeiro Pâtissière, he voiced kashino
I watched Yumeiro Pâtissière when Kaichou wa Maid-sama! anime was announced because I wanted to hear usui's voice before I watch the anime (o ̄∇ ̄o)y
He was great as makoto kashino ~ I loved him so much ..<3
Then after that he voiced usui
it's like .. his voice fits the character perfectly (⌒^⌒)b
& after that his awesome new roles like Okumura Rin,Nizuma Eiji,Fujiwara, Yumeji etc ♪☆゙
Now .. when i'm watching a new anime I can easily recognize his voice <3
for eg ..i'm watching Nurarihyon no Mago , when Inugami spoke for the first time in the anime .. I knew that his voice actor was Okamoto-san (@`▽´@)y
I guess most of the fans are like me .. no ? x"D !!

Okumura Rin first, then started watching Index just for Accelerator. he's amazing, esp. as Accelerator. no wonder he won 2 awards for that.

Okumura Rin [Ao no Exorcist]

I'd be lying if I said Niizuma Eiji [Bakuman] because I liked Eiji even before the Bakuman anime came out.

For me it would be Accelerator in Toaru Majutsu no Index. I actually saw Ghost Hunt long before TMnI became an anime, but hadn't particularly remembered John Brown till after I realized he and Accelerator were voice twins.

The first time I heard his voice was his role as Kanzato Shin from Persona -Trinity Soul-
I think I was kinda hooked from that role... but definitely hooked forever after Kisa Shouta from Sekaiichi Hatsukoi =)!

Kanzato Shin from Persona ~Trinity Soul~ while it was airing and I picked-up Ghost Hunt around the same time. I remember thinking he sounded so different in both roles - solid performance as Shin and too cute as John - that dialect XD

Was hooked at that point but it was his VA skills in portraying Accelerator that got him on to my favourites list :P
