Ever since the first outbreak of Covid-19, many people have lost their lives or their dear ones. And ever since then, all the people have been almost forced to take preventive measures before and after going out. Regardless, the disease sees no exception. From commoners to actors and even Voice Actors, it has affected all. Soma Saito, Junichi Suwabe, Sato Takuya, Nifuji Hirotaka, Hiro Shimono, and now Enoki Junya all of them have tested positive with Covid-19.
Notable VA performance of Enoki Junya
Born on 19 October 1988, Enoki Junya has wonderfully voiced Itadori Yuji, Senjuro Rengoku, and Nasa. Some of his other notable works are-
Itadori Yuji: Jujutsu Kaisen
One of the main protagonists of the anime series JJK, written and illustrated by Gege Akutami, Itadori Yuji, has also been nominated for the best protagonist in Anime Awards 2022. All thanks to Enoki Junya’s performance, Itadori Yuji is an all-time favourite protagonist of many.
Senjuro Rengoku: Demon Slayer (Kimentsu no Yaiba)
Fans had a heartbreak when Rengoku died. But seeing his younger brother, Senjuro, who looks just like Kyojuro Rengoku, is healing. And guess what, Senjuro’s voice actor is none other than Enoki Junya. Another wonderful performance by Junya.
Nasa Yuzaki: Tonikaku Kawaii
Nasa Yuzaki has a Stakhanovite personality, is the husband of Tsukasa Tsukuyomi, is courageous, clumsy, kind, and is head over heels for Tsukasa. Nasa has been wonderfully voiced by Junya with a deep character understanding.
Pannacotta Fujo: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure
A protagonist in Purple Haze Feedback, Fujo is also a side character and an ally featured in Vento Aureo. When Fujo is angry, he snaps and snaps at everything around him, even people. Thinking how outrageously Junya voiced him, he is great.
Saiya Suzuki: Haikyuu!!
Hinata Shōyo’s middle school’s volleyball teammate, Saiya Suzuki, is voiced by Enoki Junya. Suzuki played volleyball just for fun, and after joining his school’s volleyball team, with Hinata as their captain, he couldn’t help but get nervous. Junya has shown great performance after voicing such prideful characters.
Enoki Junya has also voiced Takeru from Digimon Adventure, Tarō Jō from Run with the Wind, Angelo from Arte, Douki-Kun from Ganbare Douki-chan, and many more. Knowing full well that his voice acting performance is really praisable, we hope he gets well soon.
