Shin-ichiro Miki (三木眞一郎 Miki Shin'ichirō?) is a Japanese voice actor and a member of 81 Produce. Some of his roles include Zamasu from Dragon Ball Super (who coincidentally had a similar genocidal goal against humanity like Dracula did), James from Pokémon, and Tatsuya Hibino from the Switch remake of Famicom Detective Club II: The Girl Who Stands Behind.

He hosted the 2008 internet radio program Akumajō Dracula: Radio Chronicle, which was originally aired on Konami Station, and also voiced Richter Belmont in Akumajō Dracula X: Tsuioku no Yasōkyoku (Castlevania: Nocturne of Recollection), a radio drama that was featured in said broadcast.

He voiced Alucard in the Japanese version of the Netflix Castlevania animated series.


According to mister Miki himself, he had dreams of becoming a voice actor since he was a child and thought he could make it his life career and make a living out of it. However, those around him were against this wish, thinking it wasn't profitable enough.

81 Actors Studio 1st graduate. The first time he called 81 Produce –the company he would later belong to– he was initially rejected. However, when he sent only his resume, he was granted an interview for research students. According to him, all the other applicants were groups belonging to training schools and he was the only independent, although he successfully managed to pass the audition. His goal was to become the top research student and if there was something he wouldn't understand, he would immediately ask the instructor, although he was notorious for taking more time to understand what the teacher meant and, according to him, he was also bullied a lot during those times, although this didn't discourage him.

Even though he was a research student, he also began working as a voice actor and completed the three-year course in only two years. His first role was Kanzaki in Dash! Shikirou.

In 2010, he received the "Supporting Actor Award" in the 4th Voice Actor Awards; and in 2014, he received the "Toyama Kei Award" in the 8th Voice Actor Awards.

In 2019, VART, the world's first Voice Actors Racing Team was founded, in which he became a member alongside other famous people in the industry such as Kaito Ishikawa, Namikawa Daisuke, Hatanaka Tasuku, and anime sound director Masafumi Mima.
