In the world of Italian anime, we have voices that have become historic. One of the last ones we introduced to you was that of Davide Garbolino. Today we bring you instead 5 roles by Massimo di Benedetto, historical voice best known for the role of Yugi Muto in Yu-Gi-Oh.

In addition to the world of video games (we remember Dante from DMC - Devil May Cry and Harry Potter in the series' adventures), Massimo Di Benedetto has spent a lot as a voice actor in the world of anime. Let's see 5 iconic roles.

  • The first is the double of Yugi Muto and the alter ego Yami Yugi, Protagonists of the anime Yu-Gi-Oh. A very long and important partnership that led to the synchronization of the character in Yu-Gi-Oh GX and in the most recent Yu-Gi-Oh Dark Side of Dimentions.
  • We then go into the Pokémon world with a rival from May: we talk about Drew, appeared during Pokémon Advanced as a Pokémon coordinator. He has also appeared several times in the following Pokémon series: Advanced Challenge, Pokémon: Advanced Battle and Pokémon: Battle Frontier.
  • Another enemy, this time the main enemy played by Massimo Di Benedetto is Hao AsakuraYoh's twin, straight from the Shaman King. With the restart in the next few years, who knows if Di Benedetto can return to interpret this role.
  • Di Benedetto also synchronized from antagonist to protagonist Soichiro Nagi from Inferno and Paradiso. An important role for the anime, which is based on the manga of the same name from Oh Great.
  • Finally, there is a very well-known dubbing that continues to this day, waiting for the series to end in Italy. This character is Rock Lee by Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden. The relationship between the two has been going on for several years and who knows how long it will last.

Obviously, Massimo Di Benedetto's work doesn't stop there: aside from a few extras in ONE PIECE and Hunter x Hunter, his collaboration with the Bakugan, Beyblade and Pokémon franchises is as important as his recent activities in the role of Yuuga Aoyama in My Hero Academia.
