The Voice Actress Capturing The Hearts Of Otaku Everywhere

If you've played Japanese games or watched anime (in Japanese), you've most likely heard Rie Tanaka's voice at one time or another. She's voiced Mitsuru Kirijo in Persona 3, Lacus Clyne in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, Helga in Phantasy Star Portable, Ciel in the Mega Man Zero games and many, many more. Tanaka even has an in-game item named after her, the Rietanaka workshop in Phantasy Star Universe.

It's video games that really get her most excited. "All my fans know that Rie Tanaka equals gamer," the voice actress told theOtaku.com back in 2008.

On her days off, she's known to pull 20 hour marathon gaming sessions. Tanaka even shelled out a couple thousand bucks for a slick PC rig and gaming friendly furniture to play Final Fantasy XIV. Bet she regretted that purchase, though...
