Shin-ichiro Miki (三木 眞一郎, Miki Shin'ichirō, born March 18, 1968 in Tokyo) is a Japanese voice actor currently affiliated with 81 Produce. His nickname with fans is "Mikishin". He is married but the identity of his spouse is kept secret for privacy reasons. His eldest son was born sometime in 2005 and his family adopted a black dog named "Taroko".
Before his career as a voice actor, he was working to become a pastry chef. Another possible career Miki had considered in the past was a professional car or motorcycle racer. However, after he witnessed a violent accident in the motorcycle circuits he often visited, Miki decided long ago to keep his interest as a hobby.
After being mentored by Kiyonobu Suzuki, he eventually decided to become a voice actor. He attended and graduated various classes offered by 81 Produce and became one of the most prolific artists in the industry. His fascination with automobiles is frequently mentioned during his career as a voice actor. As a side note, once he realized his character, Lockon, also drove and treasured a car, Miki requested the Gundam developers to assign his character a specific car model. In the novels for Gundam 00, the car is identified as a Lancia 037.
Miki is known to be cast as cool characters or various villainous roles, but he has played several different types of roles in the anime, game, and Japanese dubbing industry. A few of his voice roles include Deishuu Kaiki in the Monogatari series, Arno Victor Dorian in the Japanese dub for Assassin's Creed Unity, and Walter von Schönkopf in Legend of the Galactic Heroes Die Neue These.
