Animazement Panels - Akira Kamiya (460 words)
Akira Kamiya's accomplishments as a voice actor in Japan equal those of English-language legends such as Mel Blanc, June Foray, Daws Butler and Don Messick.
Kamiya has a voice acting school in Japan and has brought his students to Anime Expo; this time, the students were the fans at Animazement.
Kamiya's lessons in sound effects, which he called active and passive adlibs, were full of motion.
Animazement - Chika Sakamoto and Akira Kamiya - 2004 (855 words)
Kamiya said he didn't have any dialogue in his first roles and was only Boy C, "just a kid that was making noise." Sakamoto said she had an equally small bit part as "Girl B." And Sakamoto said she remembered watching the show where Kamiya had his first lead role.
Kamiya did end up with a stage acting troupe whose members included performers that doubled as voice actors, including the Japanese voices of Zenigata in Lupin III and the lead voices in the Heidi and Magical Witch Sally shows.
Kamiya has been in the business so long that many of his students already have seen his old shows on cable TV in Japan, and younger actors are taking over the revived versions of roles that he originated - like Kenshiro in Fist of the North Star.
