The Genshin Impact Version 2.0 stream officially revealed all the Inazuma characters who will appear in upcoming Archon Quests, including Tohma, voiced by Masakazu Morita, the seiyuu of Kurosaki Ichigo in Bleach.

Genshin Impact Tohma’s seiyuu – Who is Masakazu Morita?

In 2001, Masakazu Morita made his major debut as a seiyuu by voicing Tida in Final Fantasy X (who was renamed Tidus in English). Morita was 29 years old back then. He also voiced Ichigo right after when the Bleach anime started in 2004.

Final Fantasy X, as the first voiced FF game, left a huge mark in Japan. Final Fantasy X is the most beloved entry among Japanese fans according to the NHK FF fan poll, where it got first place. As such, Morita has been big ever since.

Here are some of the most popular and mainstream roles of Masakazu Morita:

  • Shin in Kingdom
  • Barnaby Brooks Jr in Tiger & Bunny
  • Shūji Miwa in World Trigger
  • Whis in Dragon Ball Super
  • Kija in Akatsuki no Yona

When it comes to taking over roles for legendary characters, Masakazu Morita is also the current voice of Pegasus Seiya. Personally, my favorite Morita roles are Ichigo, Bunny, and Claire Stanfield in Baccano. I’ve got some pretty mainstream tastes when it comes to him.

Personally speaking, I’m really excited for Tohma seeing I really like Bleach and Ichigo. With that said, I think the series really took a turn for the worse story wise during the Hueco Mundo arc and never managed to recover. The final arcs were terrible. It’s a real shame because I truly believe Kubo Tite is a genius, but the weekly format really screwed him over. You can easily see how better Burn The Witch shapes up to be when Kubo Tite gets the time to properly set things up instead of having to do a shocking cliffhanger every week to stay popular in Weekly Shonen Jump’s ranking.
