Person/Career

  • Because of the quality of his voice, Hiyama has a good reputation for playing many hot-blooded heroes like Shiro Armada of Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team and Teppei Takamiya of B't X, and calm characters like Yuushiro Gowa of Gasaraki and Hiei of Yuyu Hakusho. However, Hiyama is capable of voicing a wide range of characters from comedic (Harunobu Madarame of Genshiken, Space Detective 556 of Keroro, Mr. 3 of One Piece) to deranged or rowdy (Murata Azrael of Gundam SEED, Rampage, Ikkaku). Furthermore, he played tender boys like William of Marmalade Boy.
  • By fans, Hiyama is nicknamed Yuusha-ou (勇者王?, The King of Braves) because of his two protagonist roles of Maito and Gai from the above mentioned Brave series.
