Tomokazu Seki (関 智一, Seki Tomokazu, born September 8, 1972 in Koto, Tokyo) is a Japanese voice actor, narrator, and actor who is currently affiliated with Atomic Monkey. He is also the chairman of the theatrical group Herohero Q Company. To distinguish him from the other respected yet similarly named voice actor, Toshihiko Seki, fans often nickname him "Seki-Tomo" or "Chi-ichi" (pun of his given name).

He has a wide range of likes and hobbies, including but not limited to various robot anime and their figurines, the tokusatsu genre as a whole but especially the Kamen Rider series, pachinko, curry, and taking naps. Known for projecting a festive, explosive personality with his fans, Seki says he loves raunchy but light-hearted sexual jokes. Seki admits he was embarrassed to be around women during his youth and "became robotic" around them. To this day, however, he continues to joke about any questions regarding his love life and is, so far, still a fun-loving bachelor.

Most of his progress for becoming a performer hasn't really been touched on but in a recent interview, Seki stated he took acting classes during high school. He would talk with veteran teachers and actors throughout the night, return home in the morning, and sleep through classes during the day. In spite of being a popular artist today, back then his performances didn't move his audience and failed to strike the emotions he strove to portray. After one of his acts, a woman from the theatrical group telephoned him to give her earnest opinion about his flat performance. Breaking down in tears, Seki then had an epiphany that his reaction is the real emotion he needed. Since then, he said his talents blossomed and he has been able to succeed in his various performances. He made his professional debut as a voice actor in the early nineties and is one of the most prolific artists in the industry.

After his breakout role as Domon Kasshu in Mobile Fighter G Gundam, Seki became a popular voice for several heroes and young characters. He dabbles into a variety of genres to play the three basic emotions needed for theatrical drama with several characters. When he said he liked speaking jidaigeki jargon, Seki gained a brief burst of samurai roles under his belt. A few of his voice roles include Ezio Auditore da Firenze in the Japanese dub for the Assassin's Creed series, Manji in Blade of the Immortal (which he would later direct and star in the stage play), and Yotaro/Yuurakutei Sukeroku in Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju.

During the Neoromance events, Seki always professes his profound respect for Kazuhiko Inoue and addresses him as "Inoue-senpai". He thanks the fans for showing their appreciation for the actors during the live shows.
