Kazuki Yao [born 1959] is a seiyu who loves to voice Jerkass roles in general. Finally got his breakout or so as the Idiot Hero Judau Ashta in Gundam ZZ, later the Hot-Blooded Shinobu Fujiwara of Dancougar, then voiced villains that are quite a bit incompetent. He's also a decent singer.
Was once married to fellow seiyu Mina Tominaga.
