Masahiro Nonaka (野中 政宏 , Nonaka Masahiro) is a Japanese seiyū (voice actor), born on October 15, 1968 in Hiroshima, Japan. He is affiliated with Bosu Idol. Nonaka has been excessively famous for his role as Kyo Kusanagi, as well as the two Kyo clones, Kyo-1 and Kyo-2, in The King of Fighters fighting game series.
