One Piece Reveals Katakuri English Actor

One Piece has introduced plenty of villains for Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates to fight over the years, but one of the biggest one-on-one battles for the swashbuckler aiming to be the King of the Pirates was against Katakuri, one of the strongest pirates of Cake Island. While the fight itself took place years ago in the original Japanese dub of the anime, the English dub is attempting to play catch-up and new episodes have arrived that reveal which voice actor will be bringing the antagonist to life.

Katakuri himself made for one of the biggest villains that Monkey D. Luffy squared off against in a one-on-one fight with the battle resulting in the captain of the Straw Hats discovering his Gear Fourth technique. While the offspring of Big Mom hasn't had much of a role to play during the Wano Arc, it would seem that he'll be making a comeback in the fifteenth film of the franchise, One Piece: Red. While his role in the movie that is set to bring back Red-Haired Shanks, and introduce his daughter Uta to the world of the Grand Line, is still a mystery, his comeback has certainly grabbed fans' attention.

The Official Twitter Account for One Piece announced that the English Voice Actor for Katakuri will be Jonah Scott, an actor with plenty of experience bringing some movers and shakers in the world of anime to life, with new episodes of the dub arriving online for fans of the Grand Line to check out:

If you're unfamiliar with the roles that Jonah Scott has played in the past before coming onboard as one of the biggest villains of One Piece, he brought to life the likes of Legoshi in Beastars, Willy Tybur in Attack on Titan, Adam in Record of Ragnarok, and Johnny Bolt in Netflix's Supercrooks to name a few. At present, the legendary Shonen anime series still has over one hundred and fifty episodes for the English Dub to catch up on, though it seems like they're making good progress.
