From ONE PIECE in Naruto, passing through the older Fullmetal Alchemist, MΓ„R and Yu-Gi-Oh!, we discover the five most important roles of this phenomenal voice actor.

  • Renato Novara 's voice is closely linked with Edward Elric, protagonist of Fullmetal Alchemist. The voice actor gave the voice to the steel alchemist in all its animated forms, from the first series to Brotherhood, passing through the various feature films.
  • Staying within the 2000s, let's move on to Gantz. The protagonist of the anime taken from Hiroya Oku's manga has the voice of Renato Novara. Kei Kurono has his voice in all 26 episodes of the production.
  • We then move on to one of the most famous souls on the globe, ONE PIECE. Here Novara took over from Luigi Rosa as the voice of Monkey D. Luffy, the protagonist with the straw hat. All episodes from 256 onwards have Luffy in his voice and of course he also voiced Odr in the Thriller Bark saga.
