Sugita Tomokazu is a nerd Japanese voice actor (or seiyuu), born on October 11, 1980 and hailing from Saitama. He's employed by Atomic Monkey and is probably best known for his starring roles in Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu as Kyon, and Gintama as Sakata Gintoki, both of which have landed him consecutive awards as the "most favorite male character" for the 2009 and 2010 Anime Grand Prix. Known for his snarky roles and the ability to ad-lib at the drop of a hat, Sugita's voiced everything from a hotcake loving otome game prince to a rambunctious, masked guitarist living under a bridge. Outside of voice acting, Sugita's quite well known for being a big anime and game otaku, dropping references like a geek encyclopedia, even when he isn't voicing for Gintama. He appears on a number of anime/game related radios and shows, and has been best buds with fellow seiyuu Nakamura Yuuichi since 2001. However, all his spontaneity and quirkiness is what makes him so lovable: even if it means risking what dignity he has left.
-He debuted as a seiyuu while he was attending university. -Height: 5' 10" (1.78m) -He wants to have a sister so much. (It seems that they are all boys in the family...) -His fan nickname is "Freedom Sugita" because whenever he talks, it'll surely include all those ambiguous references and of course, Nakamura Yuuichi. He is also called "Sugitan" by fans. -The only ones that call him "Sugi-kun" (according to him) are Manaka (his favorite heroine in Love Plus+) and Umino-san. (Umino Chika, mangaka of Honey and Clover. I found her and Sugita pretty close.) -His mom loves to watch Bishoujo anime. He mentions that his mom watches stuff like Shuffle, Oreimo, and MM!. His dad loves Kugimiya Rie's voice. Whenever he watches anime with Rie in it, he always mentions, “Oh, it’s Kagura!” -He is quite the pervert. [I'm not even surprised at this point <3 xD] -His commute to high school was 40-50 minutes by bicycle. He then secretly got a motorbike license and rode it to school, though he parked far away so as to not get busted. -Every time he sings, he gets extremely nervous. He usually sings very.. errr, you know, comically that you'll actually keep in mind that he can't sing. -He has a bias towards all things Kuwashima Houko. And he fanboys about it as well. It even gets lampshaded by Nakamura in Tokyo Encounter. Add the fact that he is also a fan of the Hakuouki series and he loves the heroine, Chizuru Yukimura (also voiced by Kuwashima). (He even owns a dakimakura of her!) -He and Sawashiro Miyuki are childhood friends. They attend the same training school when they’re still 14. Sawashiro said Sugita never changed from that time. -He doesn't know how to swim. He apparently got almost drowned in the sea when he was young and he got an extreme fear of it since then. -He plays Galge with his arcade stick console. -He thinks he wouldn’t be able to integrate well into society if there is no seiyuu job. -He met Nakamura Yuuichi in 2001, in Dennou Boukenki Web Diver, a kid’s anime. He said it was the first time he met someone his age at a recording and then became friends with him pretty quickly. They're a riot together. He created a twitter account at first just to chat with Nakamura. lol -According to him, the only ones who he enjoys hitting him on the shoulder whenever he does something are Mikako Takahashi and Kugimiya Rie. -He is actually really shy with people he doesn’t know well, especially women. He shows this behavior often in interviews with a rather loud laugh. (I have a small interview video above that shows his burst of laughter near the end, lol) -He can’t bring himself to get angry at young people, which Aoi Yuuki used to taunt him. The first time that happened she hid behind Nakamura Yuuichi and stuck her tongue out at him. -HE IS THE ULTIMATE NICKNAMER. Sample of this is Mikakong-senpai to Mikako Takahashi, Kondom to Kondou Kanako, Imagine-chan to Imai Asami, Kodomo-sensei to Yuuki Aoi, Be-san to Junichi Suwabe, etc. -Only Yukana and Sugita’s mom scold him for not eating enough meat. -He lives up to the expectations people have of him when it’s his turn to talk. Such as situations in a cast interview where people think “Next up is Sugita, he’ll probably do something interesting” -He voiced Garfield in the Japanese dub of Garfield Movie.
