Anime Games Online’s Jowaketema went to the 2011 New York Comic Con (NYCC) and brought back some footage of Naruto’s Japanese voice actor, Junko Takeuchi! This video is different from the first one that was posted the other day. The first video was from the Naruto Shippuden panel on Friday. This video by Jowaketema features Takeuchi-san right before the premiere of Naruto Shippuden Movie 2: Bonds yesterday (Saturday).

The video starts off by the audience giving applause to the voice behind our hero. The brunette English-speaking woman (we’ll call her the event facilitator) asks Takeuchi-san how she is doing, and she responds in English saying she is fine! The event facilitator then asks if she is enjoying tonight and Takeuchi-san responds in Japanese with “very much”. The next question is “How do you like visiting the US”. Takeuchi-san responds by saying that the first day there was lightning and thunder, so she was a little scared. However, upon meeting all of the warm and kind Naruto fans, she truely felt like she was in America. The facilitator then asks “Can you tell us a little bit of how the recording of Naruto Shippuden Bonds was for you?”. Takeuchi-san says “Actually, as you will see I (Naruto) got to interact with Sasuke first time after a long time so I was really happy to see him, but then I don’t get to see him again for a while so I’m kind of sad, but anyways it was a lot of fun to work on it!”
