Copihan - Voice acting career and awards - Netflix
Before wanting to become a voice actor, Kakihara had always longed to live in Japan. He was fascinated by its entertainment culture; he thought Japan had funny TV shows, and he has loved to read manga and watch anime since he was little. So with that in mind, he set off toward his goal to become a voice actor. In 2001, at the age of 18, Kakihara went to the Amusement Media Academy (a vocational school for voice actors and artists) to study voice acting. At first, it was not a smooth road for him to get in, as the school was surprised he actually came all the way from Germany after receiving a prompt email from him 3 days prior. Kakihara sincerely requested the school to accept his application, and when they officially accepted him, he found temporarily housing at a friend's house. While he attended voice acting courses, worked part-time jobs, and also improved his Japanese through part-time school, he debuted as a professional voice actor in 2003. In 2007, at the First Seiyu Awards ceremony in Japan, he received the 'Best Male Newcomer/Rookie' award for his nominated role of Yutaka Mikoto in Princess Princess.
