A vocal powerhouse is making his debut. If making women swoon with his voice in games and anime was not enough, his new endeavor is bound to make more damages.
Takuya Satou, 31 year old seiyuu, known for his roles as Masamune Tooya in “Norn9: Norn+Nonet” game and Toshiki Kai in card game anime “Cardfight!! Vanguard“, has announced his solo debut.
More details under the cuff.
Known for his deep voice that many new fans tend to acknowledge as sounding close to a mix of Daisuke Ono and Tatsuhisa Suzuki‘s voice tones, Takuya Satou isn’t a total stranger to singing – although so far he hadn’t released anything as a unit or solo wise -. He’s already sang a multitude of character songs for several anime and games he’s been a part of, and each and every time he impressed.
He has that rockstar aura in each of his vocal performances.
For a singer with such a deep voice to control it, managing to sound interesting throughout a song instead of sounding like a gregorian chant festival in a church (sadly, we know that there are a couple of seiyuu singing like that), Takuya Satou has everything he can get to be a big name in the music business.
The official announcement was made only a few hours ago but fans are already getting excited about it.
