Quotes:

(How she originally got interested in theatre and acting)
"When you have no particular set of skills, there are only a few things you can do. I like to talk and have people listen, so acting was a no-brainer. You know, I really hate this question. So many people have these great "moments" that called them to acting like God calls preachers to the church. God didn't call me to acting. I just have always thought it was fun. That's my great lame story. I think it's fun. How boring is that?! "

WHOA. Jamie Marchi overtook Frank Welker in views? Her newfound popularity is INSANE.

Well it seems other VAs are surpassing Welker... seems I have underestimated the popularity of anime voice actors.

An actress I like to see in L.A; doing more video games, whether its North American or Japanese made.

I believe she'll fit in nicely in the world of pre-lay animation recording with the likes of seasoned actresses Grey Delisle, Tara Strong, Kari Wahlgren and Jennifer Hale and actors like Yuri Lowenthal, Troy Baker, Nolan North and Travis Willingham. Working along side them and many other talented voice actors/actresses in the L.A area can make her an even better actress. To top it off for animation, being voiced directed by Andrea Romano.

Finally to round off the praising, performance capture for video games, where her theatre and voice acting skill can really be show cased.

@akersaotome totally agree. Like j Michael tatum, monica rial, kent williams and josh Grelle, she'd be great for roles outside of anime. She'd be great for franchises like god of war, bio shock, infamous, the last of us, the arkham series, spiderman, avengers, iron man, captain America, the x-men, daredevil, the justice league, batman, teen titans, hulk, fairly odd parents, robot chicken, the Simpsons, family guy, American dad, transformers, guardians of the galaxy, avatar, gears of war, regular show, etc.

I agree. I'm looking at my list of what Funimation will probably release this year and it's looking very soft so far; even with some major titles. I fear 2014 might end up being as bad as 2011 was, unless there are some surprise new license announcements that have completed dubs ready to be released soon...

Funimation has a lot of backlog but because many of those shows are still being released on home video in Japan they probably won't see an English release until 2015...

Jamie should make a trip to L.A. and work on some games there during the downtime that Funimation is soon going to have

You do know that there are a lot of anime fans on this site don't you?

Jamie is one of the standouts so it's not that strange unless you choose to be oblivious to another fandom...

In fact majority of the VAs on the Top 100 All-Time Popularity List have some experience with anime (past or present)

@lnytune1

I guess it depends whether or not you watch anime dubs. If you only watch some, you're not watching enough. If you don't watch them, then I suppose it's understandable that some people won't be familiar with Jamie's work.

As for notable roles, if you only consider mainstream stuff e.g. aired on TV or recommended essential stuff people will say you should watch then some would be:

Masane Amaha in Witchblade, Liz Thompson in Soul Eater, Karako Koshio in Deadman Wonderland, Cana Alberona in Fairy Tail, Miss Valentine in One Piece, Juri in Yu Yu Hakusho, Rinslet Walker in Black Cat and Liara T'Soni in Mass Effect: Paragon Lost.

I would actually like it if Jamie was in more big titles and mainstream stuff. She's usually cast in niche stuff which is usually geared towards specific audiences. Niche titles aren't a bad thing at all; just than not as many people will watch them unless they're hardcore anime fans or the shows get lucky enough to air on TV.

Niche titles with some notable roles she's in are:
Rias Gremory in High School DxD, Panty in Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, Uzume in Sekirei, Rana Linchen in Freezing, Mikako Satsukitane in Heaven's Lost Property, Shirley in Strike Witches, Meg in Burst Angel, Amander Werner in Blassreiter, Helen in Claymore, Mitsuko Kongo in A Certain Scientific Railgun, Ranko Saoji in Sankarea, Aki Hinata in Sgt. Frog, Narrator in Hetalia, Shouko Kirishima in Baka and Test, Mimi in RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne, and Shizuka Nekonome in Rosario+Vampire.

Of course this is just my opinion. Every show and character has their share of fans and some will consider some things a bigger deal than other fans.

But a lot of people working in anime can eventually build up a nice resume so what's special about Jamie?

Jamie Marchi has an important little thing called presence. Her voice is unique and her performances are most often the highlight of any cast she's part of. Her work is memorable. Surprisingly this isn't very common. There are countless VAs who just don't have that "it" quality that makes them special. Almost every VA believes they have it, but no they don't... If they all did, everybody in the industry would be working a lot more and be richer & more famous.

Now the following is just my own theory which could be B.S. or maybe is an enlightening truth.
In Japan the anime audience is very passionate about the aspect of voice acting but it goes beyond that. The fans strongly prefer it when the voices of their favorite characters are also good looking in real life. You might think this is madness. One of the benefits of voice acting has always been "people can't see you so a VA is not limited by their appearance like an on-camera role" right? Perhaps that was true once upon a time but times are slowly changing.
Jamie Marchi is a very attractive woman so it's natural that she has a lot of male fans. Perhaps for the wrong reasons but fans that support her and buy stuff she's in are still fans. In Japan many fans will refuse to buy anything unless their favorite VAs are part of the cast. Even though some will claim there's more variety with Japanese casting if you pay closer attention you'll notice that it's usually the same core group of Japanese VAs headlining new titles. It's not really all that different from Hollywood casting celebrities for their animated movies except Japan has been doing it longer but they give opportunities for lesser known VAs to gradually become leading role material. On-camera acting in Hollywood has highly valued an actor's appearance for a long time; pretty much since the beginning of the industry. Talent + Good Looks = Perfect Combination, the ideal role model, great marketing tool, etc

Anyway I guess my point is Japanese fans like talented VAs are also good looking just like how fans like their Hollywood movie stars and TV stars to be good looking too. Jamie Marchi is sort of an equivalent with the same potential but for English voice acting. Obviously Jamie isn't getting roles just because she's better looking than most. If that was the case she'd be blowing most of the competition away and many other good looking VAs would have even bigger careers. The first and foremost important thing about voice acting is, should and hopefully always will be is the acting. If the person is good looking too that's just a great bonus to many.

Some people have already commented on it but Jamie Marchi didn't get things handed to her. She worked hard from minor roles to a leading lady. IMO anyone who says she's overrated doesn't really know what they're talking about. She might be cast in a lot of stuff now but that wasn't always the case and they should remember that.

If Funimation gets Beelzebub I hope she voices Hilda.

And even though it's only a small role if Launch still has her small scene during the final Spirit Bomb in the Buu saga of DBZ Kai, I think Jamie would be a good replacement since apparently Meredith McCoy isn't reprising characters anymore.

Pretty sure she'll voice a character in Freezing; hopefully one of the leads (Satellizer, Elizabeth, Chiffon, Rana or Ganessa).

IMO she'd be a great Boa Hancock (One Piece) and also be great as the new Fujiko Mine (Lupin the 3rd) if Funimation picks up the home video rights (hope the streams get high numbers).

I might sound weird for saying this but I've noticed every dub I've watched is always better with her presence in it (even a small guest role) than if she's not in it. But the larger the role the better the dub is overall.

I really think this woman is a good luck charm!

Anyways these are my favorite characters she's voiced, but I wouldn't be surprised if I swapped some out for new roles in the future.

*Masane (Witchblade)
*Mikako (Heaven's Lost Property franchise)
*Uzume (Sekirei franchise)
*Cana (Fairy Tail)
*Helen (Claymore)
*Shirley (Strike Witches)
*Rinslet (Black Cat)
*Shouko (Baka and Test)
*Ms. Nekonome (Rosario+Vampire)
*Aki (Sgt Frog)

@Jackson H

Do you think they'll be alot of endorsements for Jamie outside for Funimation. Next Year will be the year for a lot of Funi VA's to be everywhere on animation. Jamie is gonna lead it by force and example, in a couple of years VA talents will have better recognition than those half-assed celebrities.

What to say about my favorite VA? :)

Well she's a very talented actress and she's great with her fans.

I think it's neat that she still works in theatre now and then, even though she basically has a full-time career as a voice-artist (plus occasionally a script writer & voice director) which probably pays much better.


I also think she's a great example to anyone who wants to get into voice-over animation.

1. It's hard to get into that specific career field
(unless you get lucky or have good timing, usually it depends on who you know A.K.A. connections)

2. It's difficult to remain there and work often


Some new VAs would probably get discouraged and give up after a while if they were stuck doing minor roles. Others might not have the patience to stick with it and keep trying until they got a larger role (or any role at all).

Jamie worked her way up and I think it's safe to say she's now a core VA in the Funimation talent pool.

Well deserved!

I actually got to meet her at a convention this year and she was pretty cool! I hope she comes back again in the future.


My 5 favorite roles of hers (at the moment) are:
- Uzume (Sekirei)
- Masane Amaha/Witchblade (Witchblade)
- Aki Hinata (Sgt Frog)
- Mimi (RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne)
- Miss Polly (Shin Chan)

I have a feeling I may have to update my list once I hear her Mikako (Heaven's Lost Property) and Cana (Fairy Tail) voices. :)
