Mine is Crispin Freeman, personally. I think he's a legend. Itachi, Kyon, Alucard... and so many others I love. xD
He does Alucard AND Hideki? That's hilarious. :D

Plus his voice is so cool! I can't decide if I prefer his darker characters or the more carefree/funny/sarcastic characters.

So who's your favourite? Give a couple of awesome characters they've played and reasons why you like them. (:

EDIT: Miyano Mamoru, Ayo Hirano, Miyami Tanaka! Luffy's voice is like music to my ears. XD

Miyuki Sawashiro, she's just extremely talented ^^ (Canaan, Shinkurou, Cal Devens, Iwasawa)

Kazuya Nakai, he's just cool :D (Zoro, Hijikata Toshiro, Date Masamune)

Nana Mizuki

Reason: She plays many of the cute characters I like and we share a love for sweets (this is evident in the anime characters she voices).

Aria- Angelic cuteness with a slight playful side.

Kururin- see Aria

Tsubomi- Very strong lead but keeping the VA/Character type continuity and is one of the reasons I watch Heartcatch Precure, someone give Tatsuya Nagamine a medal and a cookie for having her as a VA. That was a good call on his part.

My favorite seiyuu are...

Male: Mamoru Miyano. That man is a towering piece of talent: he can act in anime and live action productions, sing, write song lyrics, and he's quite the comedian, too. Some of his most well-known anime roles are Tamaki Suou from Ouran High School Host Club, Light Yagami from Death Note, and Death the Kid from Soul Eater.

Female: Maaya Sakamoto, another talented individual. For a female seiyuu, she has a pretty nice vocal range, playing a wide variety of characters, from a newscaster with a cultish ex-boyfriend (Takada Kiyomi from Death Note) to a bratty aristocrat with a thirst for vengeance (Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji). She's also been acting and singing profesionally since she was 15, so she's had plenty of experience.

As for English voice actors...

Male: Steve Blum. His range is mind-blowing, playing everything from monsters to space cowboys to supervillains. I've heard him do a couple of voices live and he sounded fantastic. Oh, and Tom from Toonami. That's all.

I don't really have a top favorite English female voice actor, but Mary Elizabeth-McGlynn comes close.

If OP wanted you to list Seiyuu she would have said so.

As for VA's I really like Wendee Lee

I don't get why Vic Mignogna is so popular. Both the Jap and English voices for Edward Elric were bad and Tamaki sounds better in Jap. This is coming from a dub fan

Voice actor is a term which doesn't discriminate between Jap and Eng actors, OP didn't specify any further.

I would also think OP was only referring to English voice actors because he mentioned Crispin Freeman and no other Jap actors. But it doesn't matter.

No, no, I meant in general. Sorry if I confused you there. ^^; That's why I left it at 'voice actors' and not 'dub voice actors' or whatever. :D
Plus there are probably people here who may even prefer to watch anime Spanish dub, if they speak Spanish. Not that I do, just an example. I've tried watching Death Note in German and French because it's kind of interesting trying to keep up with the dialogue. xD

By the way, I'm a girl, but never mind. xD

Sakurai Takahiro. His voice for Kusuriuri is orgasmic.
<3

I also like Koshimizu Ami, mainly for her role as Horo (and Anemone).

Others:
- Orikasa Fumiko (Rukia, Riza, Seras, Miu)
- Sawashiro Miyuki (Celty, Shinku, Yano, Canaan)

As for dub voice actors, my favorite would be Laura Bailey. She always does an excellent job.

Crispin Freeman, naturally. The man is fantastic in virtually every role he's been in, not to mention that he's a very charismatic fellow in person.

Cristina Valenzuela - Amazing VA that has done grat work in BlazBlue, Zero no Tsukaima, and Nanoha. As with her excellent fandubs she does that would make her an excellent Taiga.

David Vincent - The guy really shines in the game BlazBlue playing a psychotic/coy soldier, to a future self that has an entire batman ripoff speech so epicly that he fits the character to perfection.

Jason Liebrecht - As much as I had originally wanted Todd Haberkorn as Lavi in the dub he makes an amazing Lavi. He really tried with Hei, and Syoaran, and proves his great vocal range with his Luck Gandor in Baccano! as well.

Troy Baker is definitely one. He goes from a nice goofy guy to really evil characters. Quite a vocal range too.

I love Brina Palencia too for the females voice actors. She does an excellent job.

Well my favorite voice actors are a tie between Dan Green (voices of Yugi & Atem, Knuckles, and Tsuzuki), Christopher Sabat (voices of Piccolo & Vegeta, Major Alex Louis Armstrong, Ayame Sohma, Zoro, and Ritsu Kasanoda), and Vic Mignogna (voices of Ed Elric, Dark, Ikkaku, and Tamaki).

For Japanese, my favorite is Mamoru Miyano. He plays a number of good characters, like Death the Kid and Kida Masaomi, but overall, he's just a really good voice actor. One of the best ever, in my opinion (next to Kappei Yamaguchi).

For English, I would have to say J. Michael Tatum, just because he's so versatile. He played Kyouya from Ouran, and then Isaac from Baccano. There's not a lot of voice actors that could do that. :)
