Yamato has quickly become a fan favorite member of the Straw Hat crew after joining the One Piece manga a little over a year ago, and it's been announced that Yamato will be joining the anime as well!
It has been revaled (see the video below) that Saori Hayami (Demon Slayer, One Punch Man, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, The Honer at Magic High School) will be joining the One Piece anime and lending her voice to Yamato!
We've also discovered that Hayami will make her official debut in the One Piece anime series as Yamato in Episode 990, which will premier in Japan on September 5th! The episode will be available via Funimation's official streaming app.
Saori Hayami lent her voice to the second episode of One Piece's Volume 100/Episode 1,000 celebration series "We Are One", which you can check out below for a sneak peek if you aren't familiar with her other anime/voice acting work.
