Akio Ōtsuka (大塚 明夫 Ōtsuka Akio) is a Japanese actor and voice actor who works under the Mausu Promotion agency.

He is best known for voicing Solid Snake, Solidus Snake, Naked Snake and Venom Snake from Metal Gear series, Shunsui Kyouraku from Bleach, Marshal D. Teach from One Piece, and Lieutenant Garuru from Sgt. Frog.

He is the Japanese voice of Ryoma Hoshi in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. In the English dub, Ryoma's voice is provided by Chris Tergliafera[1].

Ōtsuka was cast based on his ability to play hard-boiled characters. Ōtsuka states that he likes Ryoma's character so much that he promised to wear Ryoma's hat in future official appearances.[2]

Ōtsuka mentioned that Ryoma is a cute little boy and a smart character with a cute appearance who rocks a double-breasted rider jacket in the official Artbook Character Profile. To him, Ryoma's background is arguably grander than the other casts and was very worth voicing. Despite his appearance, he thought Ryoma has quite a lot of unique points about himself, and wanted everyone to find out where will fate lead him to.[3]
