Why Eiichiro Oda heard Mackenyu’s voice for Zoro and not Kazuya Nakai in the Anime
Oda’s bias towards Mackenyu comes despite having known Zoro’s Japanese anime voice actor Kazuya Nakai for over 20 years, having attended several parties and met privately with the anime cast. However, the reason for this, as Yao continues, is a logical one. “It’s because the staff and actors created this together. That becomes powerful. It’s an amazing piece of work.” Oda is very closely involved with the live-action One Piece as an executive producer.
The showrunner of the Netflix adaptation, Matt Owens, recently revealed that nothing is accepted without Oda’s permission, and although the staff has the freedom to reinterpret and rearrange sentences story, Oda imposed many non-negotiables, such as a complete lack of romance between the characters. fictional crew. Mackenyu’s multiple appearances at conventions continue to excite fans, who eagerly await production updates for One Piece Season 2. Yao’s appearance is sure to reassure audiences, some people are concerned about his health after his recent performances in the One Piece anime.
