One of the things I got to do was meet my Japanese voice, Yasuhiro Takato. So far he has dubbed my voice for Alcatraz and LOST. We talked for a bit and I asked him about his other voiceover work because I was curious and wanted to pick up a DVD of one of his animated shows. He told me a show title but it slipped my mind.
However the next day when I was out I saw this toy. Didn’t know who it was or what it was from. I just saw a polar bear in an orange jumpsuit who is apparently upset about something. What’s his problem? Why is he so upset? So I bought him.
The next day a package was delivered to my hotel room with a toy figure of this same bear and this thank you note from Yasuhiro. He is the voice of this bear! Crazy coincidence. And while I was shopping it didn’t take long to discover that this show, One Piece, was huge. And it had some of the coolest looking characters. I mean check this guy out.
