You never would've thought [[Manga/DragonBall Son Goku]] and Manga/{{Naruto}} are [[CrossdressingVoices voiced by women.]] OK, maybe you would have since they have rather feminine voices, but would it surprise you to know [[Manga/OnePiece Monkey D. Luffy]] is ''also'' voiced by a woman? No? Well, the point is: veteran voice actress Mayumi Tanaka. Her birth name is ''Mayumi Abe'' and she's been in the business for quite a while (over 30 years!). Before being cast as the voice of the lovable captain of the Thousand Sunny, she was also the resident [[TheLancer lancer]] in ''Manga/DragonBall'', Krillin. Since then, Mayumi's been cast in plenty of male, [[ShonenDemographic Shonen]] roles, occasionally voicing TheHero.
