Nozomu Sasaki (佐々木 望 Sasaki Nozomu?, January 25, 1967) is a seiyū who was born in Hiroshima. He is a client of the seiyū management firm, 81 Produce. In 1988, he voiced the well known character, Tetsuo Shima, in the movie, Akira, which was adapted from the manga of the same name. He also performed the role of Yusuke Urameshi in the popular anime adaptation of the manga YuYu Hakusho and returned to that role in video games for that franchise. He is sometimes mistaken for fellow seiyū Nozomi Sasaki, whose name is written the same way. Sasaki has emerged the victor of the Seiyuu Grand Prix (in which votes were collected to compile a top ten list of voice actors) more times than any other voice actor.

Sasaki was known for having a high-pitched voice, but it cracked due to constantly overworking in voice acting and singing, although it was suspected at first that the reason his voice changed due to his constant smoking and drinking. He's an avid reader and can speak English.[1]
