    This topic is a discussion of Japanese seiyuu of Transformers. My personal favorites are listed below.

    Top 6 Cybertron seiyuu
    1. Sho Hayami (Vector Prime-Galaxy Force)(Ultra Magus-Transformers Movie 1986 and 2010) tied w/ Tessho Genda (Convoy-Transformers, 2010, Transformers movies 1986 and 2007, and Headmasters)(Primus-Superlink and Galaxy Force)
    2. Katsuyuki Konishi (Grand Convoy and Overdrive-Superlink)
    3. Mitsuo Iwata (Roadbuster-Superlink)(Silverbolt-Beast Wars Metals)
    4. Takehito Koyasu (Convoy-Beast Wars, Metals, and Returns)
    5. Ikuya Sawaki (Fortress/Fortress Maximus-Headmasters)(Grand/Grand Maximus)(Ratchet-Micron Legend)
    6. Hideyuki Tanaka (Star Saber/Victory Saber-Victory and Zone) tied w/ Kenta Miyake (Omega Supreme and Landmine-Superlink)

    Top 6 Destron seiyuu
    1. Kiyoyuki Yanada (Megatron-Micron Legend)(Depth Charge-Beast Wars Metals)
    2. Seizo Kato (Megatron and Galvatron-Transformers, 2010, Headmasters, and Transformers Movie 1986)
    3. Takeshi Aono (Deszaras-Victory)
    4. Norio Wakamoto (Flame Convoy-Galaxy Force)
    5. Nobutoshi Hayashi (Laserwave and Sixshot-Superlink)
    6. Hidekatsu Shibata (Devil Z and Black Zarak(final)-Masterforce)

    Honorable mentions
    1. Houko Kuwashima (Hop-Galaxy Force)
    2. Nobou Tobita (Nightscream, Buildtron, Signal Flare, Sprung-Superlink)(Sentinel, Terrorsaur, and Quickstrike-Beast Wars and Metals)
    3. Daisuke Gori (Dauros-Masterforce)(Goryu/Dinoking-Victory) (Violenjiger-Zone)
    4. Nobuyuki Hiyama (Skyfire-Superlink)(Rampage-Beast Wars Metals)
    5. Taiten Kusunoki (Galaxy Convoy-Galaxy Force)(Black Convoy-Car Robots)(Jazz-Transformers Movie 2007)
    6. Banjo Ginga (Scorponok/Megazarak-Headmasters)(Black Zarak(initial)-Masterforce)

    Notes: Sho Hayami and Tessho Genda were seiyuu of the original G1 and Movie who were seiyuu 20 years later in Galaxy Force Vector Prime and Primus respectively in which they are both ancient characters. Kiyoyuki Yanada(Micron Legend Megatron) has that voice which portrays the Destron chracter very nicely.

    Among those listed on the list i quite like Tessho Genda & Takehito Koyasu. both really did a good job on their interpretations of TF leaders.

    Even when i heard it the first time, it didn't feel odd at all. tho at times their delivery of the dialogue may sound a bit exaggerated (& verbose). that's the way it is in japanese anime. it really fits.
