Makio Inoue (井上 真樹夫 Inoue Makio?) (born November 30, 1940) is a Japanese seiyū. He began voice acting in the '60s, landing small roles in Astroboy, and was the actor of choice for deep-voiced, serious males in the '70s. These days, he rarely takes on new roles (but he does have a cameo in Samurai Champloo, playing Mariya Enshirou in episodes 24-26). He is most noted for his two longstanding roles, as the title character in Captain Harlock from 1978 though the '80s and '90s (Kōichi Yamadera of Cowboy Bebop fame took over this role in 1998), and Goemon Ishikawa XIII of Lupin III from 1977 through today (taking over from Chikao Ohtsuka, who played the role in '71 and '72).
