Happy Birthday, Okiayu Ryoutarou

The first anime I wached was Gundam Wing. My favourite character was Treize Kushrenada, who is voiced by Okiayu. It's not only Treize's voice that makes him so wonderful, but it's a huge factor. The second anime I watched was Fullmetal Alchemist. Okiayu voices Scar, whom I still can't think about without my stomach clenching up. Oh my god, Scar. The third anime I watched was Prince of Tennis, and Okiayu, of course, voices our toasty buchou pal, Tezuka.

I was beginning to think that Okiayu was in every anime ever. That's really not so far off the mark, actually. His lovely, lovely voice makes the anime experience just that much better and even in the series where he doesn't have a regular role, I live in hope that he'll make a guest appearance.

To celebrate, give me a pairing that includes a character from the list below, a prompt, and I'll write you a one-line fic. And tell me who your favourite Okiayu character is. (Can you guess mine?)

Characters I'm familiar enough with to write about:

Treize Kushrenada (Gundam Wing)
Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Tezuka Kunimitsu (Prince of Tennis)
Mitsui Hisashi ♥♥♥ (Slam Dunk - best sports series EVER)
Kuchiki Byakuya (Bleach -- bearing in mind that I'm not up-to-date with either the manga or the anime atm, but I have seen through the Soul Society arc)
Soma Shigure (Fruits Basket -- I might be a little shaky here)

I've also heard him as:

Shinomiya Koji (Gakuen Heaven)
Reever Wenhamm (D.Gray-man -- actually, I don't think I have seen him yet, but I'm waiting)
Rokushou Aoi (Naruto -- god, that was a terrible outfit Aoi had)
Honda Hiroto (Yu-Gi-Oh! -- the first series)
Akuramu - (Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Hachiyou Shou~ aka "The show with the really long name that we watched just because of Okiayu")

Bonus mp3: Onosaka Masaya singing (and I use the term loosely) Ore wa Okiayu Ryoutarou. I believe that's the man himself yelling at Onosaka at the end.
