Comment

Obara [Masakazu, director]
The extraordinary performance of Tanaka Rie ... if I had realized this earlier, that there were various ways to do the character [of Tomoe Marguerite]......

Yoshino [Hiroyuki, series writer]
And then there is the acting of Tanaka Rie in the role of Tomoe. I take my hat off to her (smiles).

Tomoe Marguerite Character File

Yoshino Hiroyuki Talks Tomoe

Tomoe is a character who has grown up most unexpectedly.
At first only a mere bully, and though expected to leave when the academy story arc ends, Tomoe takes a large active role afterwards.
Because a dark character is rarely straight even here, I was very happy to write about Tomoe (smiles).

It should be a minor role though this might not be the case because of a famous voice actor,
The fact is that the character with the voice, if it exceeds the imagination of the production side,
One's turn certainly increases. Like Tomoe [Marguerite] in Tanaka Rie.

Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu (Tanaka Rie's 100 Poems by 100 Poets)

Tanaka Rie hosts a weekly hour-long radio show on Nippon Broadcasting System, Yuurakuchou Anime Town, and an in-flight radio show on JAL (Japan Airlines), Kids Field.

Tanaka Rie also writes magazine columns for Newtype ("Character Voice Calendar"), Seiyuu Grand Prix ("Pinku ni Ganbaru Onnanoko Panda"), and Seiyuu Animedia ("Tanaka Rie no Cinema ni Koishite!!").

DEARS, Co., Ltd., in association with the Interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies/Graduate School of Interdiciplinary Information Studies, the University of Tokyo, presents Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu (Tanaka Rie's 100 Poems by 100 Poets). The CD is slated for release on Friday, June 9, 2006, with a suggested retail price of 1,050 yen (including tax).

(The University of Tokyo, aka Toudai, is the most prestigious university in Japan. In Love Hina, Keitarou and Naru sought entrance into Toudai.)

Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu aims to bring to young people, who have few opportunities to encounter them, some of the classics in Japanese literature - namely, Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, compiled by Fujiwara no Teika (1162–1241). Tanaka Rie recites "100 poems by 100 poets."

Tanaka Rie is a talented voice actor who boasts wide popularity with children and young people, and an acknowledged high level of ability. Making her anime debut in 1999 as Sanada Mitsuki in Dual! (WOWOW), Tanaka Rie's main anime roles include Kujou Hikari / Shiny Luminous in Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart (TV Asahi and affiliates); Lacus Clyne and Meer Campbell in Gundam SEED, Gundam SEED DESTINY and the upcoming Gundam SEED theatrical feature (TBS & MBS); Tomoe Marguerite in My-Otome / Mai-Otome (TV Tokyo); Suigintou in Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden ~trδumend~ (TBS); Chii in Chobits (TBS); and many others.

DEARS would like people to widely use Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu at home, school, etc., to familiarize children and young people with the great classics of Japan...


Anime On DVD Community Forums: Re: New This Week: Releases for the Week of May 23

Quote:
Lately, I have been importing a lot of stuff, anime and non-anime, from Japan.

Although I picked up the Japanese Region 2 DVD release of Gundam SEED Destiny Vol. #13 a few months ago, I plan on getting the North American Region 1 DVDs of Gundam SEED Destiny, including Vol. #2 this week.

Rie Tanaka, the Japanese voice actress who speaks and sings as Lacus Clyne and Meer Campbell in Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny, has a lot of non-anime, as well as anime, credits to her name.

In the upcoming Japanese Region 2 DVD release of the movie, Down in the Valley (2005), on the Japanese audio track, Rie Tanaka dubs the voice of Tobe Sommers, played by Evan Rachel Wood, in Down in the Valley.

I have preordered it from Amazon Japan.

Rie Tanaka also has the honor of being chosen to recite the immensely influential, enduringly popular anthology of classical Japanese court poetry known as Ogura Hyakunin Isshu (100 Poems by 100 Poets), compiled by Fujiwara no Teika (1162-1241).

Her CD, Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu (Rie Tanaka's Hyakunin Isshu), comes out next month, in June 2006.

As someone who has studied Japanese poetry and other forms of Japanese literature, I hope to get my hands on this.

Anime On DVD Community Forums: Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu CD ***UPDATE #1 (06/16/06)***

Quote:
Sounding quite different from her Meer Campbell in Gundam SEED DESTINY and her Simca in Air Gear, here are a couple of samples of Tanaka Rie reciting poems from Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu:

Tenchi Tennou (Emperor Tenchi) -- http://www.dears.co.jp/mp3/hyakunin/tanakarie_01syu.mp3

Jitou Tennou (Empress Jitou) -- http://www.dears.co.jp/mp3/hyakunin/tanakarie_02syu.mp3

A Japanese fan observes, "Tanaka Rie really sings Hyakunin Isshu in a dignified voice...!!" ("Hontouni Rie Rie ga rintoshite koe de Hyakunin-isshu utatteru...!!")*

*Rie Rie = Tanaka Rie

UPDATE #1 (06/16/06)

Akiba Blog (Akihabara Blog) has several pictures of Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu CDs in stores on its Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu 2006-06-15 entry and on its 2006-06-15 Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu post.

Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu CD Pics: #1 (#1x), #2 (#2x), #3 (#3x), #4 (#4x), #5 (#5x), #6 (#6x), #7 (#7x), #8 (#8x)

Among other things, it is interesting how the CD is being advertised in various shops.

In Pics #2 (#2x) and #6 (#6x), for instance, they promote the Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu CD as being by Lacus Clyne from Gundam SEED, Meer Campbell from Gundam SEED [DESTINY], Suigintou from Rozen Maiden, Futami Eriko from Kimi Kiss, Simca from Air Gear, and other Tanaka Rie characters currently popular in Japan.

Note that in pic 6 (6x), Tanaka Rie no Hyakunin-isshu CDs are stacked alongside with, of all things, erotic materials.

In somewhat unrelated news...

Tanaka Rie's character in Pokemon Advanced (Pocket Monster Advanced Generation), Saori, made her debut on the Thursday, June 15, 2006, 7:00 PM - 7:30 PM broadcast of the show on TV Tokyo. Saori is also scheduled to appear on the June 22, 2006 and June 29, 2006 broadcasts.

Japanese fans point out that Saori in Pokemon Advanced is one more Tanaka Rie character with long, pink hair - along with Lacus Clyne, Meer Campbell, and Simca.

Another tribute to Tanaka Rie and her characters appears to be the Coordinator thing with Saori. Lacus Clyne and Meer Campbell are, of course, Coordinators in the Gundam SEED universe....

Now I have 100% reason to watch Air Gear and see Suigintou SIMCA oneechan do her STRIP DANCE XDDDDD. My favorite character in Rozen Maiden was Suigintou oneesama... or better still my favorite couple was Suigintou x Shinku vv. When Suigintou was dying in Shinku's arms after protecting her from Barasuishoo's attack, I was like WHEEEEE!!! Here comes my FORMAL GOTHIC DOLL YURI!!!!!!!! Well I liked Tanaka since CHOBITS but Suigintou totally stole my heart vv. Poor evil beauty Suigintou.... lovely evil beauty Suigintou ....Strip Suigintou SIMCA, STRIP XDDD. Ahhhh... one day SIMCA should do a breast fight with Benkei oneesama as well XDD. Who'll be Benkei???? Oohara oneesama kana??? Sexy Youko vs. Sexy Suigintou .... Kyaaaaaa. Now that I remember... Rozen Maiden also has a game vv... want to play, want to play...the forbidden(?) romance between Suiseiseki and Souseiseki, then Suigintou x Shinku vv...Hina Ichigo and Carnalia can be forgotten XDDDD.
Shimuka/Simca is just another "normal" Tanaka Rie character...

"Normal" considering how "unusual" Tomoe Marguerite has been in My-Otome...

Tanaka plays Tomoe Marguerite, Fia Gros, and at least one background character in My-Otome.

Hearing the voice of Leandra Cheviat,
One concludes that Tanaka Rie, who plays Leandra, is amazing.
The voice of the person, Tanaka Rie, who did Lacus Clyne in Gundam SEED sounds like the voice of a different person.

838 : [Mr./Ms. Nameless of the Valley of the Wind] : 2006/05/26 (Friday) 05:50:49 ID:QfWv9p/o
Tanaka Rie's Yomi [Mizuhara Koyomi] in Azumanga Daioh is good too, sounding like a completely different person.

She is not trivial.
At least Firiel looks relatively honest.
Miss Leandra just happens to have a tremendous sense of presence.



Morganna in .hack//SIGN. Suigintou in Rozen Maiden. Tomoe Marguerite in My-Otome (Mai-Otome). Leandra Cheviat / Sister Lain in Nishi no Yoki Majo - Astraea Testament (The Good Witch of the West - Astraea Testament)....

Tanaka Rie excels at playing great evil villains.


Evil Seductress Extraordinaire

Tanaka Rie is very versatile and has great range, able to do high, cute, sweet, beautiful voices (Lacus Clyne in Gundam Seed, Chii {Chi} in Chobits, Kingyo no Ran in Tenshi no Shippo {Angel Tales}) to low, deep, mature, sexy voices (Sei in Bakuretsu Tenshi {Burst Angel}, Akira Kayama in Uchuu no Stellvia {Stellvia}, Leandra Cheviat / Sister Lain in Nishi no Yoki Majo - Astraea Testament {The Good Witch of the West - Astraea Testament}).

Leandra Cheviat / Sister Lain, along with Fila Marik from The Third ~Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo~, have really low, deep voices by Tanaka Rie.

Simca the Slut, Leandra the Slut, Kyouko the Slut...

Hawt, sexy, seductive voices by Tanaka Rie range from high pitched (Simca in Air Gear) to low pitched (Leandra Cheviat in The Good Witch of the West, Yachigusa Kyouko {Kyoko} in Rizelmine, Vivian Wong in Yuugiou {Yu-Gi-Oh} Duel Monsters, Bianchi in Katekyo Hitman REBORN!). No one voices slutty characters, evil seductresses and villainy temptresses better than Tanaka Rie, and with Simca, Leandra Cheviat and Yachigusa Kyouko - Sluts Galore! Inc. - you have three of the sluttiest characters in Japanese animation (anime), excluding the adult stuff (hentai).


Tanaka Rie Has a Knack for Playing Very Popular Characters: Lacus Clyne, Chii, Shiny Luminous (Kujou Hikari)...

10 Billion [Yen] --> 12 Billion [Yen]
Well, I think it [Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart] was a success
After the Luminous effect.


Tanaka Rie is the speaking and singing voice of Kujou Hikari, also known as Shiny Luminous, in Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart (2005-2006). Hikari / Luminous does not appear in Futari wa Pretty Cure (2004-2005).

After the introduction of Kujou Hikari / Shiny Luminous at the beginning of Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart, Bandai Namco character sales jumped from 10.1 billion yen in fiscal year 2004-2005 for Futari wa Pretty Cure to 12.3 billion yen in fiscal year 2005-2006 for Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart - an increase of 21.7 percent, or 2.2 billion yen.

According to yZXpQ9W6 in the livedoor post linked to and quoted above, the great increase of 2.2 billion yen in character sales for the Futari wa Pretty Cure franchise is due to the "Luminous effect" - that is, Shiny Luminous aka Kujou Hikari aka Tanaka Rie.

Kujou Hikari / Shiny Luminous has been said by many in Japan to have been a sales promotion character for Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart. And, as character sales figures from NAMCO BANDAI Holdings Inc. show, she has been a highly successful one at that.
