Describe Tomokazu-GAUNTLET HADES!-Sugita here, and do it in an old-fashioned way.

One of the seiyuus who went from virtually unnoticed to VERY POPULAR thanks to the anime juggernaut that is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, where he voiced Kyon. Before that, some people might recognise him as Hideki from Chobits, but, well that's quite in the past. After his performance as Kyon, he started displaying a wide range of voices, making him one of the best and most revered seiyus in the business today. His forte is most likely the Deadpan Snarker type.

He also has some sort of rivalry with Tomokazu Seki, just because they have the same given name. They are in fact managed by the same agency Atomic Monkey which Seki is a founding member of.

He's apparently very "hardcore" according to the Blue Radio podcast. Plus it's known, from various radio shows and interviews, that he's also a VERY keen gamer and anime Otaku, coming out with references to anime, manga and games even when nobody besides him knows what he's talking about. This is why he's nicknamed 'Freedom Sugita' by fans. And no, he is not doing this because he's influenced by his role in Gintama. He just happened to be awesome like that. Occasionally, a fellow seiyu or two will catch the references and continue the conversation from there.

He's notable that for a few times, he made some spot on Norio Wakamoto impressions, once in Bururaji, again in Gintama and later when he, along with Yuuichi Nakamura and Takahiro Sakurai, do so while playing a Yu Yu Hakusho Genesis fighting game, all picking Wakamoto's character. And narrating it. Later he does it again in Sket Dance.

Him and Yuuichi Nakamura also host a program called Tokyo Encounter where they play video games and share some trivia. And also goof off. That Wakamoto impersonation? It's from that show.
