If he was asked to step down from One Piece roles, it won't make sense if same won't happen with Dragon Ball (same company after all)

Depending on Yamucha's prominence in those they might just cut him out entirely or make him voiceless

Hopefully he'll also leave his Dragon Ball and Gundam roles next

Daima is airing Autumn 2024, of course I'm not voice acting expert (Only watched shows that deal with behind the scenes stuff, like Shirobako, Sore ga Seiyuu or Seiyuu Radio :) ) But i'd say it's more than enough time to recast and re record, depending how many episodes they already did :)

Yup. If he's out of One Piece (owned by Toei), he's out of Dragon Ball (also owned by Toei).

Though, to be honest, Yamcha in Super had like... 5 lines outside that baseball episode.
I don't think his role in Daima would be too different.

He was asked to step down from these roles by his agency, so most likely he's going to be asked to pseudo-voluntarily also step down from any other roles they know there's a good risk he'd get fired from if he didn't (and that 100% definitely includes Yamucha). At this point everyone's just trying to minimize the bad press he gets as much as they can.

I don't want him to play Yamcha anymore, Tooru has crossed the line and I've lost all respect for him as a person.
Do you have any info about international non-English broadcasts about the Dragon Ball anime or manga translations/editions? Please message me. Researching for a future book with Dragon Ball scholar Derek Padula :thumbup:

Well, unless Yamcha is in every scene of Daima (which I really doubt), they could re-record the character in a matter of two or three recording sessions of a few hours.

Now, the reason why they would take too long to re-record them would be the casting itself. I assume that Toei is still considering what to do with Furuya and has not begun a casting for Yamcha yet.

Yamacha is likely such a minor role Furuya will probably be him for Daima and then will be his send off. Anything post Daima will be a new voice actor.

Japan is EXTREMELY careful about keeping a wholesome, family friendly image, I think they are redubbing his scenes as we speak.

This forum is so over-dramatic that it's not even funny.
