Wildly Different Anime Characters Voiced By The Same Actor

If you watch tons of anime, you may notice several anime characters with the same voice actor. Some anime voice actors feature upwards of 100 different characters on their resumes, leading to many anime characters being voiced by the same actors. While some end up specializing in specific types of characters, many other actors fall all over the map. As such, many famous voiceover actors deserve much more credit than anime fans usually give them credit for. This collection of videos from GoBoiano on YouTube shows some of the more unexpected examples of different anime characters voiced by the same person. 

For example, did you know that Mamoru Miyano voiced Death Note's Light Yagami, Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood's Ling Yao, and Free! Iwatobi Swim Club's Matsuka Rin? How about Jun Fukuyama playing Assassination Classroom’s Koro-Sensei and Code Geass' Lelouch Lamperouge? You'll find no shortage of completely different anime characters voiced by the same person, a trend that repeats itself as well when American actors lend their voice to anime.
