Blanca Rada is a Spanish voice actress. A true veteran of the anime business, she started in The '90s getting into Japanese and Western animation fields and quickly became an important name, eventually spreading into live action and TV series. Recognizable by her brash and sassy voice, she plays masterfully children, young characters and funny nonhuman critters, and can take a wide pattern of personalities. Rada is especially apt in playing boys, giving surprisingly solid male voices, and although she is not a professional singer, has some serious singing abilities. She is an usual part of the cast of anime destributor Arait Multimedia, though is also one of its most active members outside its works.
