Japanese girls they love him maybe becz he is kawaii or something like that
anyway if i was his boss i will send him to produce Hentai


Personally I don't really dislike him, he's a good VA. What I don't like is when he is screaming angrily which can get really annoying after a while. Voicing Eren from AoT is a good example :p


I actually like his screaming.

hope it ll not suck like 80% of live action movies!

It might be low for most of them but it certainly isn't low for Yuki Kaji.

There are perks to be good looking. Yuki does have a baby face! :3

Yeah, well, the salary of a VA is very low so they don't have the leeway to be picky with their jobs. And just so you know, he's not the only VA who does Yaoi CD/Eroge.

I agree. It's completely fine for them to get into ero-acting to earn more.

If Show By Rock isn't good I'll be permanently sad. Hopefully it doesn't turn out like Gatchaman Crowds did.

Wow... I thought I had seen Deai no Jikan all along... Turns out it's different from the first Ansatsu Kyoushitsu. Mixed feelings... Now I have to wait for it to be available, while I'm glad I haven't seen it since it means there's more to watch...

Mar 2, 2015 3:52 PM by einonymous

I might check out Show by Rock!! for the lolz

No you are not. Everytime his name is brought up, people say that they don't like him, because of this he was the first Japanese VA name I learned.
