Let's hope both Tanaka and Nozawa have the longest lives ever.

The question seems kinda rude. I hope the entire main cast will be with us until the end.

Tanaka brought it up herself. The program didn't directly ask her about it.

I could not imagine anyone else voicing Luffy other than Mayumi Tanaka.

I hope they can get someone that sounds similar, most seamless voice handover was probably Kermit the frog.

But god I really hated when the voice of Mouri Kogoro from Detective Conan was handed over after 13 years, the new VA sounded absolutely nothing alike and the personality the voice portrayed was wholly different.

Man I wonder what it’s like playing a character for so long.

They must become a part of you, like family.

if One Piece follows the Dragon Ball route and gets games until the end of times,she will be voicing Luffy until her life ends.

If Luffy ever gets a new seiyū, it will be Chinatsu Akasaki. How about that?

Well it doesn't seem like she's got any noticeable health issues that would indicate she won't be around for much longer. In any case, best thing to do would probably look for a someone to be her protege and come up with a succession plan so that when the time comes the transition can be as smooth and seamless as possible. Even if she makes it to the end of the series, the franchise certainly continue to be milked, in which case they would need Mayumi Tanaka or a replacement.

This might be just for fun or might be a foreshadowing of the future. This is similar to the Shin-chan VA handover that happened last year where the original VA cannot perform the role anymore.

Honestly, I think it would be the other way around.
