In first episode of Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger Season 2, he was part of a trio of voice actors, which also included Tomokazu Seki and Akiko Nakagawa, that filled in for the Past Sentai Warriors (Jetmen, Dekarangers and Boukengers).
He previously voiced Billy Cranston in the Japanese dub of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. He also voiced the titular character of B-Robo Kabutack, along with Professor Jun'ichiro Kokuritsu, and Takeshi Tenma (Voicelugger Sapphire) in Voicelugger.
Some of his better-known anime roles include Trunks (Dragon Ball Z), Ky Kiske (the Guilty Gear games) and Hanamichi Sakuragi (Slam Dunk), the latter of which coincidentally fits with part of Debo Spokorn's motif (Spokorn has a basketball for a head and initially challenged the Kyoryugers for a basketball match).
