Jun'ichi Kanemaru (金丸 淳一 Kanemaru Jun'ichi?) is a Japanese voice actor who has done voice work for the Japanese version of the Sonic the Hedgehog series and its spin-offs. He is best known as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog. He is Sonic's most famous and longest-lasting voice actor across various media.

History

In addition to being a voice actor, Kanemaru is a singer as well. Some of his most popular songs are "Suddenly" and "Shall We Walk Together". Kanemaru was an English teacher in Japan, which is why Sonic says English lines frequently in the Japanese versions of Sonic X and the games.
