Happy birthday to perhaps one of the most prolific voice actresses of all time and one of the key contributors to the Anime boom of the 90’s; presenting to you, Megumi Hayashibara!! :D There is a reason why she ranks as my favourite female voice actor of all time period!! Just look at the characters she’s voiced and try to tell me otherwise. If she isn’t the best, then she at least qualifies for a top 5 or 3!!
Hayashibara is usually identified through her plucky and cheerful tone of voice, but she instantly use different vocal tones within a heartbeat. You’ve got hyperactive, brash anti-heroines like Faye Valentine and Lina Inverse but she can perform silent, distant and quiet roles like Rei Ayanami, Rune Balot and to some extent; Ai Haibara.
Some of the roles Hayashibara has voiced have pretty much cemented themselves as one of the most iconic fictional characters in modern Anime history. I mean, Rei pretty much has set the benchmark for the emotionless doll archetype and pretty much everyone knows who Jessie from Team Rocket is!! Hayashibara is even the current voice for Hello Kitty!! I’m not joking!! :O That’s how versatile she really is!!
Although she has stepped to side for voice acting a little due to personal reasons, Hayashibara’s legacy towards Anime is undeniable and it shall be an interesting one to look at many years from now.
Happy birthday, Hayashibara-Sama!! We Otakus thank you for the contributions you’ve made towards the Anime entertainment industry and for inspiring a generation of Seiyuu’s and Anime fans alike!! :D
