Marina's VA Roles
Tropes associated with Marina Inoue:
- Action Girl: Not her, but the majority of her roles are this.
- Contralto of Danger: Due to the number of Action Girls she voiced, many of her characters she voiced come out this way. That being said, she's capable for using a higher-pitched voice for cuter and younger characters.
- Crossdressing Voices: One of the reasons why she became a seiyuu in the first place was so she could play the male roles like she did in the drama club at her all-girl high school.
- The Gunslinger: Several of her characters, most notably Yoko.
