    Small questin about Luffys way of speaking

    Ive been trying recently to get a hang of japanese a bit better and I am starting to work out dialogue but I am having a hard time with Luffy. I know people in anime can have varied ways of speaking depending on what effect they want the character to have, like Nel in Bleach lisping or sayng the silent u out loud.
    I wonder if anyone who is kinda well versed in Japanese could fill me in on if Luffy is talking strangely or if it's just me that sucks

    Maybe try ask in the Role Play section as well? Might be some there with experience

    I don't think it's you who sucks, it's more like it takes a very special voice to talk like Luffy, imho.

    (Turn down speakers, might hurt your ears from the applause afterwards)
    As you see, Luffy does not have a male voice, it might very well be impossible to imitate Luffy's voice so it sounds right, naturally, with a male's voice.
    The rest is sound editing programs

    This one is quite interesting to watch actually xD
