Notable Roles


Marina Inoue

Marina Inoue (井上 麻里奈 Inoue Marina, born January 20, 1985) is a Japanese voice actress. Inoue was born in Tokyo, Japan and became a seiyū and singer as an adult. Inoue made her debut as a voice actress and singer after she was chosen out of 2000 people from the "Gonna be a star" auditions (hosted by Sony Music Japan) for the title role in the OVA Le Portrait De Petit Cossette.

Inoue is notable for being able to play girls with deep, coarse, almost masculine voices very well; in fact, she became a voice actress so she could play the male roles she did in the drama club at her all-girl high school. She is one of those rare talented seiyū who can draw very well, and provides eye-catches for some of the anime she has a voice role in, including the ending artwork for episode 22 of Zegapain. She also happened to be a cosplayer and model, too, before and after she entered the voice acting industry.

Notable Roles



Yū Kobayashi

Yū Kobayashi (小林 ゆう Kobayashi Yū, born February 5, 1982) is a seiyū born in 1982. She is known for voicing both male and female roles. Her deep voice also makes her a popular choice for Action Girl roles. When not doing voices, she is also a singer.

Lately, some of her fans have been calling her sanity into question. For example, she can draw well. What she draws is another matter entirely. Then again, considering the fact that she's voiced a Split Personality girl in Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, and at least two characters for 07th Expansion series, perhaps we shouldn't be surprised. Kotaku has a video montage of all of her infamous "artwork"

Fans have taken to calling her 2.5D, which is a dubious honor as they no longer consider her 3D. When speaking normally, people have noted that she has a habit of always using honorifics due to her upbringing via strict tradition.
