Behind the Voice: Trina Nishimura – Interview At Anime USA 2017

Jack and Brad sit down with VO Actress Trina Nishimura to talk about her upcoming project, Anime Unlocked, and look back at 2017 for some personal favorite moments.

Trina’s bio via Anime USA: Brandishing her voice just as Mikasa wields her blade; Trina Nishimura has sliced her way through the voiceover world over the past few years. From meager beginnings as the little hungry girl Namiko in Desert Punk, to her much anticipated and lauded appearance as Mikasa Ackerman in Attack on Titan; Nishimura’s agile voice has brought her critical acclaim, and unprecedented fan support.

To date, she has voiced over 100 different characters in movies, television shows, and video games. Fans will recall Trina’s many dutiful portrayals in such works as Attack on Titan and Attack on Titan Junior High (Mikasa Ackerman), Soul Eater (Mizune), Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (Lan Fan), Trigun: Badlands Rumble (Milly Thompson), Fairy Tale (Sherry), Evangelion 2.22 and 3.33 (Mari), Black Butler (Ranmao), Smite (Chang’e) and the ever popular Steins;Gate (Kurisu Makise), to name a few.

Some other exciting pieces of her work include Luna in Cashern Sins, Francesca Lucchini in Strike Witches, Sohara in Heaven’s Lost Property, Aiko Kudo in Baka and Test, Sakuya in ..hack//Quantum, Sen in Ben-To, Mamitas in Space Dandy, Chain in Blood Blockade Battlefront.

Trina is that rare breed of performer who not only embodies her characters, but also embraces her fans…taking time to make appearances around the world. Though her voice and talents have taken her, and her characters to every corner of the globe….her heart will always belong to Texas.
