Or as the version in my language goes, “a beloved person has many names”. And Barnaby’s seiyuu Masakazu Morita certainly lives up to this saying, judging by Tiger’s seiyuu Hiroaki Hirata’s ever growing list of nicknames for him. Twitter user @i14015 has been keeping track of these nicknames for years, and I thought it’d be fun to romanize it for everyone’s enjoyment and so we could appreciate Hirata’s ability to come up with a new one so often.
Here’s the romanized list (TL note: usagi means rabbit):
Morita-kun (with different spelling for the suffix)
Banira-chan & Banisuke
Fushigi no kuni no arisu no shirousagi (White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland)
Banita Masakazu-san & Morita Banikazu-san
We’ll update the list when another nickname pops up, doesn’t look like Hirata’s done coming up with new ones yet!
