Kenyu Horiuchi (堀内 賢雄, Horiuchi Kenyū, born July 30, 1957 in Gotemba, Shizuoka) is a Japanese voice actor and narrator currently affiliated with his self-founded voice actor company, Kenyu Office. He is currently married and is the father to two children.

Horiuchi was formerly a disc jockey during his youth and called himself by his "odd sounding" given name during performances. Fellow voice actor, Kazuya Tatekabe, saw his talents and invited him to the voice performance industry. He attended Tokyo Announce Academy and two other vocal educational programs before making his debut in the early 1980s. Aside from Tatekabe, Horiuchi is known to be on very good terms with Jūrōta Kosugi. They were students at the same junior/high school, Zushi Kaisei, and were friends in the same class.

Horiuchi has been known to lend his voice to various types of characters ranging from serious, calm, and monotone to comical throughout the entertainment industry. However, Horiuchi claims himself capable of only performing two character archetypes: "the cool ones" or "the hopeless ones". Some of his roles include Raiden in the Metal Gear Solid series, Guin in Guin Saga, and Germán Luis in GARO: The Carved Seal of Flames. He's the Japanese voice for Michael Vaughn in Alias, Larvell Jones in Police Academy, and Kronk in The Emperor's New Groove.

After his role as Oscar in the first Angelique, he gained a boost of popularity with female fans. He is the only voice actor who has voiced a character in the three major Neoromance series franchises. An Oscar pendant was made to celebrate Horiuchi's one hundredth appearance for Neoromance live events.

Works for KoeiEdit
