Well, not exactly a full time thing, Kitajima Kousuke who won gold medals for the Men's 100m and 200m Breaststroke at both the Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 Olympics, will be voicing the original character "Pirate Kitajima" of the "Fishman pirates" in the new One Piece movie, One Piece Film Strong World!.

He comments about the character he's voicing saying, "I don't know, he's got a way nicer body than me and looks cool." He even jokes saying, "I think he'd swim faster than me... I mean, he's a fish after all". Kitajima's favorite character is Zoro adding, "He's very much like me, in the part where he's able to 'crawl' his way back up even if he loses."

The movie is due out December 12th

Now, they should ask Arakawa Shizuka to voice somebody, then I'll be sold.

Anyway, I hope that it will be a fun experience for the guy. :)

Don't apply logic to this anime/manga.

The author is way too idioticcreative for that to happen.

Seriously, OP is, I don't know, new dbz? Lots of popularity and zero of quality.

Lol... I seriously laughed at that.. One Piece is one of the anime's that is indeed as you say, popular, but the quality of the series (as a whole) is fucking amazing.

Lol
I guess that there's time when you speak the truth and other time when you utterly fail at it.
I don't like One piece much but I can say that the quality is there (for the manga at the very least).
