Brittney Karbowski (born June 26, 1986) is a voice actress working primarily for (as of now) Creator/FUNimation; she worked frequently with Creator/ADVFilms in the past (From 2005 to its closing in 2009). She also works on occasion for Creator/SeraphimDigitalStudios on dubs produced by Creator/SentaiFilmworks. Perhaps her best-known role is that of Black Star from ''Manga/SoulEater''...most fans agree that the "girly-ness" has disappeared from her voice a few episodes in. She is also known for her roles as Selim Bradley in ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'', Ikaros in ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'', and Himeko Katagiri in ''Anime/PaniPoniDash''.

She is often cast alongside Creator/MonicaRial. Her Japanese counterparts are Creator/RieKugimiya (in terms of the {{Tsundere}} typecast) and Creator/RinaHidaka (in terms of shared loli roles). Her Californian counterparts are Creator/KariWahlgren (in terms of vocal range), Creator/MichelleRuff (in terms of vocal range), Creator/CristinaValenzuela (in terms of vocal range), Creator/EdenRiegel (in terms of vocal range), Creator/CassandraLee (as they both tend to play teen girls with either an ego or a short temper in addition to relatively similar vocal ranges) and Creator/EricaMendez (in that they both play girls who can get irritated easily, in addition to occasionally playing young boys). Creator/BenDiskin is her SpearCounterpart [[note]]As both Brittney and Ben are known to voice hot-headed and short-tempered characters as their primary typecast with TokenMiniMoe as their very minor and lesser known forte[[/note]], and her Canadian counterparts are Ashleigh Ball, Creator/NicoleBouma and Creator/ChiaraZanni. In terms of TokenMiniMoe roles, she's slowly establishing herself as the Texan counterpart to Creator/ChristineMarieCabanos, who also happen to be the Californian counterpart of Creator/RinaHidaka in terms of TokenMiniMoe typecast. Also is the Texan equivalent of Creator/TaraStrong.

She married a man named Matthew Hernandez in 2013.

!!Tropes associated with Brittney Karbowski:
* CrossdressingVoices: Notably as [[Manga/SoulEater Black Star]] and [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Selim Bradley.]]
** This is actually a recent development, because Black Star was her very first male role. She admitted at a panel that this was unintentional, because she was just mocking her little brother's voice at the audition and didn't expect the director to take it seriously.
* CuteButCacophonic: A lot of her loli roles will have this pitch, [[Manga/FairyTail Wendy]] being the best example.
* GenkiGirl: Often plays these types of characters whenever she's not playing teenage {{Tsundere}}s. [[Anime/PaniPoniDash Himeko]] and [[LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions Sanae Dekomori]] are perfect examples.
* GirlishPigtails: A lot of the characters she voices tend to spot this.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: Most of the characters she voices happen to be young teenage girls with [[{{Tsundere}} a short temper]] or have a large ego. However, she's also typecast into lolis (particularly [[Creator/SentaiFilmworks when she works in Houston]]).
* PlayingAgainstType: While she's quite well known for her tsundere or lolis in terms of ''Creator/SentaiFilmworks'' dubs, Migi from ''Manga/{{Parasyte}}'' is an amoral BlueAndOrangeMorality alien parasyte living within someone's right hand.
** There is also [[Manga/SoulEater Black Star]], which is one of her first male roles she voiced.
* StarMakingRole: As Himeko in ''Anime/PaniPoniDash'' (specifically for Houston based dubbing), and as Black Star from ''Manga/SoulEater'' (for Creator/{{Funimation}} based dubs).
* {{Tsundere}}: She does have tsundere roles to boot. Examples include [[Anime/AngelBeats Yuri]], [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Misaka]], [[LightNovel/IsThisAZombie Yoshida]], [[LightNovel/InfiniteStratos Cecilia]], and [[VisualNovel/LittleBusters Rin]].
* TokenMiniMoe: Lolis aren't exactly her main forte, but have been recently getting a few. Some examples include [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Last Order]], [[Manga/HighSchoolOfTheDead Alice]], [[Anime/TamakoMarket Anko]], [[LightNovel/{{MM}} Noa]], [[Manga/FairyTail Wendy]], [[LightNovel/MahouSensou Futaba Ida]], [[LightNovel/TheAmbitionOfOdaNobuna Takenaka Hanbei]], and [[Anime/SengokuOtome Yoshino Hide]].
** In fact, three of her loli roles [[note]][[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Last Order]], [[Anime/TamakoMarket Anko]], and [[Anime/SengokuOtome Yoshino Hide]][[/note]] were shared by Creator/RinaHidaka, a Japanese voice actress who is also known to voice these kinds of characters.
* WomanOfAThousandVoices: Despite often being pigeonholed as Tsundere characters, she has played a few other characters with a few different ranges of voice acting, from [[GenkiGirl energetic genki girls]] like [[Anime/PaniPoniDash Himeko Katagiri]], to [[CrossdressingVoices aggressive boys]] such as [[Manga/SoulEater Black Star]], to an EmotionlessGirl, Ikaros in ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'', to voicing higher pitched voiced characters like [[Manga/FairyTail Wendy]] and [[Anime/AKB0048 Orine Aida]], to even voicing a British character, Cecilia Alcott, in ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos''.
