- Good news is coming from every corner today in Japan, and the latest is from the world of Pokemon! Famous seiyuu Tatsuhisa Suzuki, known for his roles as Endou Tou in Dagashi Kashi and everyone's favorite Tachibana Makoto from Free!, will now take his godly voice into the world of Pokemon where he'll voice Dragon gym leader Raihan (Kibana in Japanese). He's also very well known for being married to one of the biggest anisong artists out there , LiSA, who you know very well for doing the OP for Kimetsu no Yaiba among other hit anime.
- Tatsuhisa Suzuki was very pleased to take the role of Raihan and he had this to say: "I've heard that Kibana (Raihan) is very loved by Pokemon fan, so I felt a lot of pressure coming into this. But more than that, I would like fans to love and appreciate Kibana more and more through giving life to Kibana with my voice while standing in front of mike wishing it. Kibana's energetic face also gets me excited. I've share a meaningful time with Kibana and this feeling must be conveyed on screen. I'm very happy if all of you look forward to him being on the screen and continue to love Pokemon in now and in the future."
- Very powerful words from one of the greatest out there. Truly inspiring indeed! Those of you tuning into the latest Pokemon adventure, please look forward to it! I know I will!
What a freakin' cool guy! I love his voice and I think Raihan fits him perfectly.
I'm with you 100% on that bee-kun!
