Happy Birthday Karen Strassman!

I absolutely adore her performance as Anna in Fire Emblem Awakening and Fates. It was pretty much the voice I had always imagined for her while playing the earlier games. I also thought she did a fantastic job with Aigis. Making her sound completely robotic to more human-sounding towards the end of the game. She really made the transition sound natural IMO.

I also liked her as Mozu, Hana, Natsuki, Nanako, Sola-Ui and Olivia!

Happy Birthday Karen Strassman!!

I loved the incredible versatile range she puts in her performances on the many characters she voiced as like Soi Fon, Kallen Stadtfeld/Kozuki, Kiyoh Bachika, Omiko Hakodate, Anna Fortner/Liebert, Nanako Dojima, to name a few.

Happy birthday Karen Strassman, the female Dave Wittenberg.

She has one of the most versatile ranges, capable of playing young boys, young girls, action girls, tough girls, sultry girls, teachers, mothers, and some more.

For a fun fact, she's pretty fluent in French, even going as far as having narrated commercials for Air France. She's even good with other accents too (German most notably).

Noteworthy performances include Emilia Kishitani, Urd, Mint Adenade, Aigis, Kitana, Mileena, Sola-Ui, Female Assassin, Rider, Michelle Neuhaus, Hanako, Seuigintou, Omiko Hakodate, Sawako Yamanaka, Heinkel Wolfe, young Pip Bernadotte, Nanako Dojima, Loni Garvey, Anna Fortner/Liebert, Satsuki Yatouji, Delphine Eraclea (it sucks that Funi didn't reprise Bang Zoom for Fam), Rouge the Bat, Striker, Poison, Mercedes Morcerf, Fantine Valjean, Soi Fon, Momo Hinamori, Sun-Sun, Kallen Stadtfeld/Kozuki, Mint Adenade, Miyuki Takara, Kiyoh Bachika, Yasuko Takasu, Nanako Kashii, Casvall Rem Deikun, Anise, Margaret, Paimon, and Kazuko Saotome.

Congratulations on landing a role on Iron-Blooded Orphans as Tomomi Bernstein.

I can't praise her Casval enough. I found it hard to believe it was her first major boy role.

She's got a great range, & really seems to emote in her VO stuff. It's great that she does (albeit smaller) live-action stuff, that she knows French, & she was even the French voice on LOST.

I kinda wish she were more in-demand, as it were.

It is cool she got to voice (Cinderella, of all things!) in Mickey Mouse shorts.

She reminds me of an anime Tara Strong.

Great work.

I love this woman, she always puts a hundred and ten percent in to her work and of course is extremely versatile and is amazing with accents especially French Accents.

I'm not sure which of her roles I loved more...There's the average everygirl turned badass Nina Fortner/Liebert in Monster, the lovable woman child mother Yasuko Takasu in Toradora! and of course the first role I ever heard as resident action girl and unofficial daughter of Domon Kasshu....Kallen Kozuki in Code Geass. Karen just rocked as these characters.

I also loved her performances as Rouge the Bat, Kiyoh Bachika, Muginami, Mercedes Morcerf, Fantine Valjean, Sola-Ui, Rider, Omiko Hakodate, Emilia Kishitani, Kazuko Saotome and her many roles on Magi.

I haven't heard her as Casval Rem Deikun yet and I'm very curious to see how she does a young boy voice.

I'm really amazed that she hadn't voiced a young boy before voicing Casval Rem Deikun, she sounded surprisingly natural and they really should cast her as more boys in the future. Definitely a stand out performance in Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin's English dub.

I also liked her performance as Heinkel Wolfe in Hellsing Ultimate too.

When I was playing MK X, I recognised Mileena's voice. I knew i'd heard it in several other places. Doing some research, Not only did I remember it was from Kallen from Code Geass, but also Poison from Street Fighter. I love the voice so much

During the audio commentary of Hellsing Ultimate episode 7, Taliesin Jaffe was telling the story of casting young Seras Victoria. Strassman checked the script and saw there was a young British school girl. Taliesin was advising her not to, but she really wanted to play young Seras. Jaffe agreed, recorded young Seras's scene; Strassman left the recording booth not the good mood.

@YamiFangirlQueen It sort of makes since, seeing as Cindy as Amy sounds like Minnie Mouse

@YamiFangirlQueen Not even close for me, her voice of rouge sounds brilliantly unique compared to Lani's and Caren's.

And it ain't intentional for her to sound like what you said you know.

Her performance as Poison from Street Fighter X Tekken was fun to listen to. Sounded like Karen had alot of fun playing the character too, as if during the audition she read the description of Poison and maybe saw the character art and said to herself, "I've got this".
