Want to know something cool? It turns out that Naruto‘s voice actor, Junko Takeuchi, is dubbing MrBeast’s YouTube videos in Japanese!
Ever since October 2021, MrBeast’s videos are receiving dubs in different languages: Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Arabic, Hindi, Thai, Russian, Turkish, Korean, and French. Japanese is also added to the list in more recent videos.
One netizen took notice of Naruto‘s voice in MrBeast’s Squid Game video, and is possibly one of the few to do so. MrBeast confirmed this by replying to the netizen’s tweet:
It truly is worth bragging about if you share a voice actor with the iconic Naruto Uzumaki! Most especially that MrBeast is a Naruto fan himself! He tweeted last time about the Naruto 20th anniversary video:
He is completely taken in by the re-animated scenes of Naruto, and even seemingly asked for a remake. He is answered by a netizen:
The fact that MrBeast is serious of paying so that Naruto will receive the modern animation it deserves is telling. Any OG anime fan will get hyped of seeing their favorite classic anime gets re-animated with better quality. Take Bleach, for example. When Bleach: Thousand Year-Blood War, it became the number 1 anime of 2022 in MyAnimeList site.
Well, let us hope that Naruto will receive more modern animations in the future! Who knows, MrBeast might make it happen!
Hear Naruto’s voice in this MrBeast video:
To switch to the Japanese dub, you will just have to click the Settings icon and proceed to the ‘Audio track’ option. Easy peasy.
What is Naruto about?
Naruto Uzumaki is born with special circumstances. Moments prior to his birth, the Kyuubi, the Nine-Tailed Fox, attacked his home: Konohagakure, the Hidden Leaf Village. To end this, the village leader or the Fourth Hokage at that time sacrificed himself and sealed the Kyuubi inside the newborn Naruto.
It is because of this that Naruto got shunned when he grew up. Naruto wants to become a Hokage in his village, as he struggles to fit in. He later befriended Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno while training under the most talented ninja, Kakashi Hatake.
Naruto gets to encounter a variety of foes along his journey, which brings harm to people he cares about. He harbors the goal of becoming even stronger, so this includes dealing with the sealed beast inside him.
