  • Quotes

  • Kujira is an amazing voice actress.

    Wakako Matsumoto is extremely talented and I could never guess that Orochimaru was voiced by a woman. She does an amazing job making Orochimaru sound sinister. Orochimaru, I think, is one of the best VA in the whole Naruto universe. I have no idea how Wakako Matsumoto can sound like Orochimaru; you just don't expect it. Truly amazing talent. I am not familiar with really any other of her roles other than Orochimaru but regardless of how her other roles are, her voice acting as Orochimaru is just unbelievable! Such incredible talent! I wish every voice actor or actress was as good as Kujira.moreless
