Nozomu Sasakiis a Japanese voice actor and singer. He is represented by the voice actor management firm, 81 Produce, and was previously represented by Arts Vision. In 1988, he voiced the character Tetsuo Shima in the movie ''Akira'', which was adapted from the manga of the same name. He also provided the voice of Yusuke Urameshi in the anime adaptation of the manga ''YuYu Hakusho'' and returned to that role in video games for that franchise. He is sometimes mistaken for fellow voice actress Nozomi Sasaki, whose name is written the same way. Sasaki has emerged the victor of the Seiyū Grand Prix (in which votes were collected to compile a top ten list of voice actors) more times than any other voice actor.
Sasaki was known for having a high-pitched voice, but it cracked due to constantly overworking in voice acting and singing, although it was suspected at first that the reason his voice changed was due to his constant smoking and drinking. He's an avid reader and can speak English. Provided by Wikipedia
