The official Dragon Ball Super Twitter account and website noted this morning that Naoki Tatsuta (voice actor for Oolong) will take over as the voice of Northern Kaiō and the narrator from Jōji Yanami beginning with this weekend’s twelfth episode of the series:

「ドラゴンボール超」において北の界王およびナレーターを務めております声優の八奈見乗児さんの療養に伴い、
第12話の放送より龍田直樹さんが北の界王およびナレーターを務めることとなりました。

八奈見乗児さんの復帰につきましては、回復状況を鑑みて、
ご本人と相談の上、検討したいと考えております。

八奈見乗児さんの回復をスタッフ一同、願っております。
引き続きご声援を賜りますよう、お願い申し上げます。


Due to Jōji Yanami-san’s hiatus for rest and recuperation, his parts as the North Kaiō and the Narrator will be played by Naoki Tatsuta-san starting with the broadcast of episode 12.

It is our intention to carefully consider Yanami-san‘s return, taking into account the status of his recovery and upon consultation with the individual himself.

The entire staff is wishing for Yanami-san‘s recovery. We humbly ask for your continued voices of support [under these difficult circumstances].

Though present in 2013’s theatrical film Battle of Gods, Yanami (by extension of his characters not being in the film) was not present in the 2015 film Revival of “F”. Additionally, while he continued to play the roles of Northern Kaiō and the narrator in the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai, his role of Bobbidi was given to Bin Shimada.

All of us at Kanzenshuu wish Yanami the best and a speedy recovery.

    More Tatsuta is a great thing, but not like this…
