Tesshō Genda (玄田 哲章 Genda Tesshō?) is a seiyū, or voice actor who was born in Okayama Prefecture, Japan on May 20, 1948.[1] He is employed by the talent management firm 81 Produce.[1] When he debuted, he used his real name, Mitsuo Yokoi (横居 光雄 Yokoi Mitsuo?).[1] Because he had experience with ballet, he was known by the nickname "Pirouette Genda."[2]

Along with such well-known seiyū such as Akio Ohtsuka, Shigeru Chiba and Kōichi Yamadera, Genda is one of Japan's most prolific voice actors, with 234 roles credited to his name as of September 25, 2007.[3]

Among his other credits, he has performed the roles of Masami Iwaki (Dokaben), Suppaman (Dr. Slump and Arale-chan), Gō Reietsu (High School! Kimengumi), Optimus Prime (A.K.A. Convoy) (The Transformers), Umibouzu (City Hunter), Ichimi Araiwa (Cooking Papa), and Action Kamen (Crayon Shin-chan) and is the current Japanese voice of Tigger in Winnie the Pooh media.

Like his Canadian counterpart Peter Cullen, Tesshō reprised the role of Optimus Prime (Convoy) in the Japanese dub of the 2007 Transformers movie. He is the Japanese voice of Batman in Numerous Animated Series. Like his American counterpart Kevin Conroy, Tesshō also reprised the role of Batman in the Japanese dub of Batman: Gotham Knight.

In February 2010, he received a Merit Awards from the 4th Seiyū Awards.[4]

In addition to the names above, Genda's name is sometimes romanized in credits as Tessyou Genda, Tetsuaki Genda, and Tetsusyo Genda, though the later two spellings/romanizations of his name are incorrect.
