Started out as a obscure production assistant of many popular Bang Zoom! Entertainment titles like Haruhi Suzumiya, Christine Marie Cabanos (born July 12th, 1988) (And much like Johnny Yong Bosch, you can abbreviate her name to just 'CMC') is one of the newer talents becoming well-known within the anime fandom thanks to her breakout role as Azusa "Azu-nyan" Nakano" in K-On!. Since then, Cabanos has been cast into lead characters who happen to be cute young girls such as Squid Girl, Filia, and Madoka. That is to say, however, that she does an amazing vocal range for a newcomer as this video shows. She's also an Idol Singer as well and posts many of her Image Songs in her YouTube channel.
Most of her training and experience is mainly thanks to the workshops by Tony Oliver (which he has the knack of casting her when he's the ADR Producer). She's often cast alongside Cristina Valenzuela.

Tropes associated with Christine Marie Cabanos' roles:
- Cute, but Cacophonic: Due to her naturally high-pitched voice, she is often casted as Token Mini-Moe characters.
- Gamer Chick: Voiced Chiaki Nanami, who happens to be one.
- Nice Girl: Some of the characters she voices have this personality. Shiemi Moriyama, Nepgear, Mako Mankanshoku, Minori Kushieda, Usalia, Silica, Chiaki, Lisette, Amitie, and Madoka are borderline examples.
- Pigeonholed Voice Actor: Many of her roles tend to be female Token Mini-Moe. Bonus points that many of them tend to be Nice Girls.
- Tender Tears: She's known to handle scenes where her characters break down in tears easily such as Madoka and Shiemi Moriyama.
- Token Mini-Moe: Some of her roles she voices happen to be this. Compare Azunyan, Squid Girl, Nadja and Pisti, Madoka, Gabriele, Nepgear, Marie Rose, Usalia, and Silica.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Landed with six different great roles.
