10. Vic Mignogna

6,321 Favorites

Seiyu: Mignogna, Vic
Most of us know Vic as the English Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood or as the playboy Tamaki from Ouran Koukou Host Club, but that’s just two of his top roles. Vic has voiced characters in over 150 different anime and video games. So if you think you recognize Tamaki’s voice in something, there’s a good chance you’re right.

9. Johnny Yong Bosch

6,721 Favorites

Seiyu: Bosch, Johnny Yong
Johnny is the second and last English voice actor to make it on this list and is most known for the following roles: Lelouch from Code Geass, Bleach’s heartthrob Ichigo, and Toradora’s Yuusaka. That’s only to name a few! He’s been in so many different popular anime, it's impossible to name them all. Check out his page if you’d like to see what else he’s been in.

8. Yuuichi Nakamura

7,856 Favorites

Seiyu: Nakamura, Yuuichi
Yuuichi voiced Fairy Tail's fan service to the ladies (Gray) and Tomoya from Clannad. Fun Fact: Did you know that Yuuichi loves cats but refuses to own one because he doesn’t want a pet to die before him? This guy may be just as cute as the hunks he voices!

7. Takahiro Sakurai

8,418 Favorites

Seiyu: Sakurai, Takahiro
He’s not one hell of a butler, but his character Claude in Black Butler II sure tried to be. He also voiced Suzaku from Code Geass and had a minor role in Fairy Tail (as Sting) and Akatsuki no Yona (as Tae-jun).

6. Yuuki Kaji

8,776 Favorites

Seiyu: Kaji, Yuuki
Fans of both action and romance will recognize Kaji’s work. Two of Kaji’s biggest roles were Erin Yeager from Shingeki no Kyojin and Kou from Ao Haru Ride. So he can protect you from titans AND steal your girl’s heart... Try not to hate him too much boys.

5. Daisuke Ono

12,973 Favorites

Seiyu: Ono, Daisuke
Takahiro Sakurai might not have been one hell of a butler, but Daisuke sure is! If you still haven't guessed, he is the voice behind Sebastian Michaelis from Black Butler. He was also the voice of Yukito from Air and Shizuo from Durarara!!.

4. Tomokazu Sugita

13,988 Favorites

Seiyu: Sugita, Tomokazu
Aliens everywhere beware! Sugita, our favorite government agent/PE teacher is training high school students to defeat you! Or at least his character, Tadaomi, from Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is! He also voiced Yuuichi from Kanon and Kyon from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu.

3. Jun Fukuyama

17,467 Favorites

Seiyu: Fukuyama, Jun
Grell from Black Butler and Koro-Sensei from Ansatsu Kyoushitsu would be honored to know that their voices are so loved that they hit the top three. But let’s not forget about Fukuyama's role as Lelouch from Code Geass or Yukio from Ao no Exorcist.

2. Hiroshi Kamiya

22,343 Favorites

Seiyu: Kamiya, Hiroshi
Sorry Levi (Shingeki no Kyojin) fangirls. The sexy voice of your man candy only made it to number two. But 22,343 favorites is nothing to be upset about. Hiroshi also voiced Yuzuru from Angel Beats! and Izzaya from Durarara!!.

1. Mamoru Miyano

26,014 Favorites

Seiyu: Miyano, Mamoru
Mamoru’s list of beloved character roles is long, but here are some highlights: Light from Death Note, Rintarou from Steins;Gate, Death the Kid from Soul Eater, Ling from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and Sho from Skip Beat. If you’d like to see the full list, check out his MAL page.
