If, let’s say, as a college student, the voice of Vegeta asks you to jump into the booth
to voice a character with one line, you should probably do it. That’s what Ian Sinclair
did, and look at him now. He is, as they say, making paper. They try to give him
money, but he keeps insisting on paper.
Recently announced as Chuck in Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, a few of Ian’s
most popular roles are Ryner Lute in Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Bardroy in
Black Butler, Romano in Hetalia, and Shu in Princess Jellyfish. Previously, his voice
had a talent for showing up as characters in three categories: The Good, The Bad,
and The Buddy. They are as follows:
The Goodies: Toraji in Bamboo Blade, Liam in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and
The Baddies: Dallas in Baccano, Bora in Fairy Tail, Ian in One Piece, Shogo in Rin:
Daughters of Mnemosyne, Zaki in Claymore, Toyama in Oh! Edo Rocket, Haruki in
Master of Martial Hearts, Douglas and Steve in El Cazador de la Bruja, Shiro in
Okami-san, and Nakajima in Linebarrels of Iron, amongst others.
The Buddies: Daisuke Matsuo in Yamada’s First Time, Marc in Spice and Wolf II, Seo
in Sekirei, Ginei Morioka in Rosario + Vampire, Hasegawa in Baka and Test, Takamy
in Fractale, and Akoz in Casshern Sins.
Please do not allow his multitude of Baddies to make you think he is, in fact, a
Baddie. Of course, those are words only a Baddie would say, but whether or not you
believe him is completely your decision.
Additionally, Ian can be heard as the voice of Baron Flynt in the video game
Borderlands (also a Baddie, btw), and as the “Cool” custom hero voice in Dragon
Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi. Ian has worked as a director on Initial D, Spice and Wolf
II, both seasons of Black Butler, and a few others he can’t talk about… yet. Insert evil
