Hiroshi Kamiya (神谷 浩史, Kamiya Hiroshi, born January 28, 1975 in Matsudo, Chiba) is a Japanese voice actor currently affiliated with Aoni Production. He was raised in Ushiku, Ibaraki. Kamiya has one younger brother with a voice like his, but his brother works in the radio broadcasting industry. He is a big fan of cats and even owns a cat he named "Nyanko-sensei". Kamiya is also a fan of Tomokazu Seki and Michiko Neya.
Throughout his youth, Kamiya had several different perceptions for his future but he decided to try to become a performer. He tried to apply for Osaka University of Arts following high school for their arts program, but he failed the entrance exam.
Deciding to try his luck with another acting school, he unwittingly listed into Aoni Jyuku and was unaware of the school's actual purpose to train voice actors. Since he allegedly has lower body measurements not considered within the ideal proportions for an actor, Kamiya thought to at least try a shot at voice acting. Throughout his debut in the nineties, he provided several narrations for television shows and other entertainment outlets. At one point, he fell into debt due to the expensive transportation fares he needed to go to each show. On August 7, 2006, Kamiya was caught in an automobile accident and hospitalized for a month. During this time he was visited by his friend, Romi Paku, who gave him a get-well-soon amulet. Kamiya stated he still has it today.
His recognition as a voice actor rose significantly when he won a "Best Supporting Character" and "Best Lead Voice Actor" at the second and third Voice Actor Awards. Kamiya often appears as a lead or important characters in the anime and video game industry. A few of his characters include Jin Asagiri in ROOT∞REXX, Yuzuru Otonashi in Angel Beats, and Mikhail Blanc in Macross Frontier.
