Kamiya Hiroshi, born January 28, 1975 in Matsudo-shi, Chiba-ken, Japan (raised in Ushiku-shi, Ibaraki-ken), is a Japanese voice actor with the agency Aoni Production. He has been in the industry for over 15 years with notable roles including Orihara Izaya (Durarara!!), Tieria Erde (Gundam 00), Natsume Takashi (Natsume Yuujinchou), and Itoshiki Nozomu (Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei).  Kamiya is well-known for his love of cats, Gundam, and video games. He has a Russian Blue cat named Nyanko Sensei, coincidentally the same name as Natsume’s partner in Natsume Yuujinchou.

On August 7, 2006, a horrific traffic accident left Kamiya hospitalized for two months. With a miraculous recovery, he was back in the studios recording by December after three months of rehabilitation. At the 2nd Annual Seiyuu Awards in 2008, Kamiya won the award for Best Supporting Actor for his roles as Tieria and Itoshiki sensei. The following year, he took home the prize for Best Lead Actor and Best Personality. In 2012 he won the award for the newly established Most Votes category. Due to his popularity, Kamiya is often referred to as “Asia No.1,” but being the modest guy he is, he’s not exactly keen on it. In 2009, Kamiya began releasing solo music CDs under the Kiramune music label. He is also part of the unit KAmiYU under the same label with fellow seiyuu Irino Miyu.

Ono Daisuke, born May 4, 1978 in Sakawa-chou, Kouchi-ken, Japan, is a Japanese voice actor with the agency Mausu Promotion. Ono has been in the industry for 10 years, making him kouhai (junior) to Kamiya. His breakout role was Koizumi Itsuki in the highly popular series Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu (aka The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya). Since then, he has voiced many well-known characters such as Heiwajima Shizuo (Durarara!!), Sebastian Michaelis (Kuroshitsuji), and Hosaka (Minami-ke). In addition to his “OnoD” nickname, he is also often referred to as “Handsome,” a nickname he is not particularly fond of but has gotten used to. During the Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekisou event, Ono described his character Koizumi as “kimokakkoii” (cool but gross), but somehow that description has now become synonymous with Ono himself. Kamiya can often be heard calling Ono “kimochi warui” (gross; translated as “you suck” in One Point Eikaiwa in DGS #61).

Aside from voice acting, Ono also has a solo music career with the music label Lantis. His first mini album, Hinemosu, was followed by a few singles and then a full album. At the 2nd Annual Seiyuu Awards, Ono was co-recipient with Kamiya for the Best Supporting Actor award for his roles as Hosaka and Kagezaki (Rental Magica). At the 4th Annual Seiyuu Awards in 2009, Ono was presented with the Best Lead Actor award.
