One Piece voice actress Mayumi Tanaka announces her retirement.
Mayumi Tanaka announced her retirement as Luffy’s voice actress in One Piece
With 44 years of voice acting experience, Tanaka spent about half of that time as Luffy and is now a signboard of “ONE PIECE.” “As a boy, I’ve been given the opportunity to do a lot of things, and I want to end my voice acting career with Luffy. I feel like I’ve done everything I can do to play the role of a boy.”
Kantele Fuji TV’s variety show “Seven Rules” (every Tuesday at 11:00) will feature voice actor Mayumi Tanaka (67). It was during the dubbing that she revealed her thoughts on the role of Luffy. When she picked up the microphone during her close-up VTR, Tanaka confessed that she was hungry, so she revealed her rule of “bring food to post-recording.” She went on to say, “It’s said that the microphone picks up the rumbling sound of the stomach, but not the sound of a loud fart. When I let out a big fart (Hey! Hanimaru) Hanimaru, I said, ‘Hannya! As soon as I said, “I’m sorry, but it wasn’t included. It turned out to be completely OK,” she revealed with a smile.
Regarding the reason for becoming Luffy’s voice actor, “There were auditions several times. There were people who wanted to play the role of Luffy as a man, and there were people who wanted to play the role of a woman. Kazuya Nakai, the newcomer, was the one who decided on Zoro first. When it became like, “So Luffy is a veteran?” I came to the surface. I also heard that (Eiichiro Oda) originally said, “ The person from Pazu (Tanaka) is good,’” she said.
