So I’ve gotten the sense that the impression that Rie Kugimiya can only do one voice has been left on the English speaking anime community. I think this has more to do with the high profile nature of some of her recent voices like Shana, Louise and Nagi. It’s definitely not all she’s capable of and this can be proven in just 3 relatively short videos. Thank you Seiyuu Monatage samplers!
A Short Collection Of A Variety Of Roles She Has Done Ranging From The Oft Mentioned Tsundere Loli, To Tough As Nails Tomboy, To Young Boy, To Soft Spoken Adult
Even Her Singing Doesn’t Sound Samey. Take This Cyndi Lauper Knockoff (Tell Me That Does Not Sound Like Girls Just Want To Have Fun) Song And Compare It With….
This Alternative Punk Rock Sounding Piece. Big Difference I Think
So hopefully that will help somewhat in dispelling the myth that she’s a one trick pony, though since once a belief has been allowed to sit in the minds of internet denizens for to long it becomes very difficult to get rid of with even solid evidence. It’s up to the reader to take the obvious and realize the truth. So go on and start realizin’ then!
