Sukuna is undoubtedly one of the most charismatic characters in the series. His arrogance and vibrance is perfectly captured by veteran actor Junichi Suwabe. However, it is hard to believe that the same actor also voices Shota Aizawa, the perpetually tired homeroom teacher of Class 1-A.

Suwabe has also voiced characters like Victor Nikiforov in Yuri!!! on ICE, Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez in Bleach, Yami Sukehiro in Black Clover, Leone Abbacchio in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind, Keigo Atobe in The Prince of Tennis, and Archer in Fate/stay night, to name very few.


2) Yuichi Nakamura
