'''[[{{Persona 3}} DESCRIPTION!!]]''' [[{{Persona 3}} That's all.]]'' Rie Tanaka is one of the most well recognized seiyuu among the industry. Because her vocal talents allow her to voice a diverse range of characters, she is capable of playing the roles of subservient women, idealistic women, {{Badass}} women, sadistic women, clueless kids, [[AndZoidberg and]] [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Yomi.]] While she was initially not that well known early in her career (through ''Manga/{{Chobits}})'', ''GundamSEED'' certainly shot her to extreme fame with her role as Lacus Clyne, one of the most popular characters in anime media. She gets to [[TalkingToHimself talk to herself]] in ''Chobits'', ''SEED Destiny'', and as a guest star in ''Anime/HellGirl''. It has become something of a RunningGag for her characters [[IronyAsSheIsCast to be bad]] at [[HollywoodToneDeaf singing]], despite her actually being a successful singer. To date, she has released four albums (Garnet, Kokoro, Chara de Rie and 24 Wishes). The latter two are compilations from her anime roles. She's now [[MayDecemberRomance married]] to fellow seiyuu Creator/KoichiYamadera, and should not be mis-recognised as the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rie_Tanaka_%28gymnast%29 gymnast of the same name]]. ---- !!Notable roles by Rie Tanaka: * Alice Bivorio Basskreigh in ''LightNovel/CubeXCursedXCurious'' * Alicia in ''AquarionEvol'' * Ayaka Usami in ''{{Manga/Gravitation}}''. * [[ProfessionalKiller Bianchi]] AND [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Hibird AND Uri]] in ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' * Chii and Freya in ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'' * Chizuru Aizawa in ''ShinryakuIkaMusume'' * Ciel of ''MegaManZero'', who [[DoItYourselfThemeTune also sang the ending theme.]] * Cinnamon in ''VideoGame/RuneFactoryFrontier'' * Emina Hanaharu in ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy Type-0}}''. * Eriko Futami in ''{{Kimikiss}}'' * Hikari Kujou/Shiny Luminous in ''FutariWaPrettyCure'' * Irene in ''VideoGame/HexyzForce'' * Kan-E-Senna and Garuda in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV: A Realm Reborn'' * A rare Video Game role: [[TheMentor Karen Erra]] in ''[[PhantasyStar Phantasy Star Universe]]''.
