|Voice Actor Profile|
Kento Hama is the voice actor of Ryu Kimura. He is currently affiliated with Ken Production. His hobbies are basketball and playing video games.
Growing up, his father was a firefighter and Kento always planned to be one when he got older, as well. Due to not doing well enough in his studies to follow in the path of his father, he began to look towards a singing career after his voice was praised by a teacher, specifically going after the idea of being in a band. However, playing basketball in school for six years didn't leave him much opportunity or time to meet any potential bandmates so he was quite lost on what to do. Then, he happened to see Jun Fukuyama's acting as Lelouch in Code Geass at a friend's house and was inspired to pursue voice acting, as he would have a chance to sing and act in that position.
Firefighting having a significant place in their lives isn't where the resemblance stops between Kento and Ryu. Kento sometimes has "fail" moments during SideM events, such as making a pun at one of SideM's 3rd live dates and the entire crowd and cast not laughing at it, causing multiple seconds of awkward silence followed by teasing. Also, sometimes at lives Kento will apply a band-aid somewhere on his face to reference Ryu's clumsiness.
