I know nobody gives a fuck about it, but I remember when I was a child I was at my friend's place watching Detective Conan while his father arrived and started to read the names of the credits at the ending with "Japanese accent", I remember perfectly him saying "Kenji Kodama", and now, more than 10 years after, I know who this man was. Nice.
