Why do we watch anime? For some, it is sheer entertainment. For some, it is a vehicle to teleport into a magical world. And this includes Carl Pei, the CEO of Nothing and Co-Founder of One Plus. Stick around to find out just how much Carl loves Naruto!
In a recent podcast session, TRS, hosted by the motivational speaker and fitness enthusiast BeerBiceps, Carl talked about his undying love for Naruto.
During the podcast session, Carl said, “Naruto is one of my favorite pieces of culture.” And upon asking why, he answers it by saying, “It started off very innocently.”
If you aren’t aware of this. Carl is a dropout, just like Naruto, who still is a Genin; Carl is an underdog taking on the tech world, just like Naruto, who took on the ninja world, even when no one believed him.
He has the charisma just like Naruto, which can make many follow him. And this is how Carl feels too. He is a CEO who can relate himself to an anime character.
In the podcast, he mentions how retable Naruto is. Carl said, “I think a lot of people can relate (Naruto), me included.”
Well, almost everything except getting a “girl” part. He even gave a cheeky reply to the host when asked if there was anyone in his life now, to which he replied, “I’m very busy with work.”
Back then, when people were uploading subbed episodes of Naruto on YouTube, Carl launched a website where he embedded these episodes on the site; talk about launching your own Crunchyroll out of your room and making money through ad revenues.
