With over 200 credits to his name, this fan-boy has managed to get to play a variety of characters that are almost as colorful as his hair.

He was thrilled to be a part of the Toonami re-launch last summer, in the roles of Ganta Igarashi in Deadman Wonderland, and Heihachi Hayashida in Samurai 7, and even more thrill to follow that up the following summer’s thriller Another as Kouichi Sakakibara.  His most recent roles include Satoru Asahina in From the New World, Kenji Nakanishi in Say I Love You, Sion in No. 6, Heisuke Toudou in Hakuoki, Tommyrod in Toriko, Arikawa in This Boy Can Fight Aliens, Tomoki Sakurai, in Heaven’s Lost Property, and Volken, in the Book of Bantorra.  Some of his all-time favorite roles include Son Goku in Saiyuki, Chrono in Chrono Crusade, Kaoru Hitachiin in Ouran High School Host Club, Youhei Sunohara in Clannad, Yuki in The Wallflower, Leo in Ghost Stories, Satoshi Hiwatari in DNAngel, Kaworu Nagisa in the Director’s Cut of Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Negi Springfield in Negima.

Have you ever wondered what it'd be like to live life as a Toon? After the Disney-inspired world of Toontown was shut down - the most popular family-oriented MMO of its time - a band of developers met together to bring it back and better than ever!

'Toontown Rewritten' starts where Disney left off to bring back the MMO, where you play as a cartoon animal using old-school gags to fight in the battle against the corporate giants known as 'Cogs.' The game has been running for three years with over 800,000 registered players and counting.

Whether a child at heart or one of the business bots yourself, stop by our booth or one of our panels to answer the question: Are YOU Toon Enough?
