"Do you know who Rina Sato is?"

Yes, I do. Rina Sato (born May 2, 1981 in Kitakyushi, Japan) is a seiyuu whose breakout role is Negi Springfield from Negima!. She usually voices Onee-sama girls, Bunny Ears Lawyers or Cute Shotaro Boys. Her characters seem to often have a thing for magic.

She had recently joined the "feel-seventeen" cult by Kikuko Inoue and is a fan of archery.

She's got a few relationships with Daisuke Ono.

She's also won Best Lead Actress in the 8th annual Seiyuu Awards.

On the eve of New Year's Day 2017, Satō announced on her blog that in the past year she had married, and had also given birth to a baby boy.


Notable Roles by Rina Sato:

Tropes associated with her:

  • Cloudcuckoolander: According to her, she was one when she was in school, daydreaming and having her head in the clouds, while ignoring her teacher.
  • Contralto of Danger: When playing roles of adult women, she can display a deep and imposing pitch compared to her acting of teenager characters (though this also applies to younger characters she has voiced over the years).
  • Cool Big Sis: One of her specialties. If you read her name in an anime, you can bet that she will perform the role of an older sister figure (literally or figuratively).
  • Crossdressing Voices: Her voice can get lower enough to allow her to perform roles of young boys, or even (male) teenagers in some cases.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Many character of hers qualify as this.
  • Tsundere: While not as prominent in those roles as other voice actresses, she tends to take on tsundere roles from time to time, the most famous example in her case being Mikoto Misaka.
