• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Rie Tanaka is one of the most well recognized seiyuu among the industry. Because her vocal talents allow her to voice a diverse range of characters, she is capable of playing the roles of subservient women, idealistic women, Badass women, sadistic women, clueless kids, and Yomi. While she was initially not that well known early in her career (through Chobits), Gundam Seed certainly shot her to extreme fame with her role as Lacus Clyne, one of the most popular characters in anime media. She gets to talk to herself in Chobits, SEED Destiny, and as a guest star in Hell Girl.

It has become something of a Running Gag for her characters to be bad at singing, despite her actually being a successful singer. To date, she has released four albums (Garnet, Kokoro, Chara de Rie and 24 Wishes). The latter two are compilations from her anime roles.
