Naka Kon 2015: Interview With Junko Takeuchi!

It was an amazing weekend this year at Naka Kon, and were already marking our calenders for next March, but this year will forever be remembered for our time with the voice behind the gutsy ninja Naruto! Gaming Plus was able to catch up to Junko this weekend and ask a few questions!

Thank you for meeting with us today, we really appreciate your time! We just have a few questions for you today, it wont take long at all. So how did you become a voice actress in the first place?

An agency was scouting for new voice actors and found me.

Did you always want to be a voice actress, and if not what was it that you wanted to do for a career?

No, I didn’t always intend on being a voice actress, before I wanted to work in a bank.

A bank?

Yes (Laughs) I wanted to be an office lady, and have a normal job. You know, wake up in the morning and go to work.

Like a 9 to 5 job, right?

Yes. But I couldn’t wake up in the morning so I gave up on that! ( laughter)

Okay. What advice do you have for anyone wanting to be a VA?

Whatever you want to do in life you should always just go for it!

That’s some great advice! So, do you watch anime?


What do you watch?

Naruto! (Laughter)

Besides Naruto, who is your favorite character?


That’s my favorite too, that’s awesome! So what character do you relate to the most?

Hmmm, maybe Sakura? Because she is serious.

We all know Naruto eats a nothing but Ramen, whats your favorite thing to eat?


What is your favorite part of your job?

Being able to play different characters and be different roles.

Out of all your different roles whats your favorite ones?

Characters like Gon and Naruto, the underdogs.

Well that wraps it up this time! Its been a pleasure meeting you today, and thank you for talking with us.

Thank you
