Daisuke Hirakawa (平川 大輔 Hirakawa Daisuke?) is a Japanese seiyuu, born on 4 June 1973 in Niigata Prefecture. His bloodtype is A. His height is 167 cm, and he weighs 52 kg. He is sometimes mistaken for fellow seiyuu Daisuke Namikawa, as their names only differ by one character when written in kanji.


Script error At first, as he enjoyed playing with his friends' children, he wanted to become an infant caretaker. However, he suddenly changed his mind and became a seiyu.

He has done Japanese voice-overs for 2 of Orlando Bloom's characters, Will Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean and Kingdom Hearts II, and Legolas from The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.


Script error His hobbies are cooking, skiing, and snowboarding.[1]

He has admitted to being a hetare. The subject came up on a radio show with Sanae Kobayashi, and the two self-styled hetares seemed to have formed a 'hetare union', although it is not clear whether there are any other members.

He had never been abroad before- until his stay during the Say-U event in South Korea which took place on the 15th of November 2008, with fellow seiyus Ken Narita and Wataru Hatano.[citation needed]
