A newer seiyuu with a slow, but steady rise in fame, Akeno Watanabe is known for her rather husky voice, but she is capable of turning it into a level suitable for cute little boys or desperate young girls. She's a gamer
and a fan of both of the Tales Series
and Super Robot Wars
(somehow turning into an Ascended Fangirl
when she got the roles of Mao
and Ibis Douglas
). To further the joke, the producers of Code Geass
must have taken notice of her liking for Super Robot Wars
, and placed her in the role of someone who has the same name
as one of the Super Robot Wars
' Original Generation
characters (Villetta Vadim).
She is also a self-proclaimed Bokukko
, and that's a factor in her roles.
Do not confuse with Ken Watanabe
