Monica Rial Education

Monica Rial studied ballet, tap and jazz, but transitioned to musical theatre when was 12 years old. Rial studied acting through high school as well as college at the University of Houston. In an interview with Otaku News, Rial mentioned voice actor inspirations from The Simpsons, Family Guy and Beavis and Butt-head. Rial was working on a theatre show with Jason Douglas, who suggested she audition for ADV Films. Rial’s first voice-over role was some walla in the 1999 dub of Martian Successor Nadesico. Rial said in an interview with Otaku News that she had to talk for two minutes straight as folks in a crowd telling the Jovians to go home. Later, Rial landed in main character roles as Miharu in Gasaraki, Natsume in Generator Gawl and the title character in ADV Films’ production of Hello Kitty’s Animation Theater, the last of which was one of ADV’s best-selling DVDs. Rial voiced Izumi in 2001, in the baseball anime Princess Nine and in 2002, she got to voice Hyatt in Excel Saga, which she listed among her absolute favorites.

Monica Rial voiced best-friend character Kyoko Tokiwa in Full Metal Panic! in 2003, and got to reprise her for Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu and Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid. In the same year, she voiced Kirika Yumura, the quiet assassin partner in Noir. Rial said that Kirika was challenging because she had very few words but had to convey a lot of emotions. Rial also noted that Kirika’s personality changed over the course of the series, so she voiced her to be more emotional in later episodes which drew some criticism from fans. She also voiced Lila in Najica Blitz Tactics where she also got to do a DVD commentary together with fellow actress Kira Vincent-Davis. The commentaries have become popular as Rial receives feedback from fans about them at anime conventions. In the sci-fi show RahXephon, Rial voiced female protagonist Haruka Shitou.

Monica Rial started voice-over work with the anime dubbing company Funimation In 2004, in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. During that year, Rial voiced Amy in the long-running detective anime series Case Closed and Lyra (aka Dante) in the drama series Fullmetal Alchemist. Both of these shows were featured on Cartoon Network. Rial also voiced co-lead character Lumiere in Kiddy Grade. Meanwhile, with ADV, she voiced Nyamo-sensei in the school comedy Azumanga Daioh. in Blue Seed and Maya in Neon Genesis Evangelion Rial had also taken over some character roles as Momiji. She said that it was very difficult to try to sound like the previous voice actors, especially Maya’s low voice, so she tried her own approach. She also got to voice Pen-Pen the penguin in Evangelion. Rial voiced the serious lead character Jo in 2005, in a team of mercenary girls in the cyberpunk science fiction series Burst Angel.

Monica Rial voiced the title character in 2006, in Nanaka 6/17, about a 17-year-old girl who, through an accident, has amnesia and regresses to her 6-year-old self. She voiced female protagonist Kagura Tennōzu, in Speed Grapher and in the ADV Films remake of Macross, she voiced Misa Hayase. Rial voiced Sakura in 2007, in the English anime adaptation of Clamp’s Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle; Maria in Witchblade; Misuzu Kamio, a heroine in Air, and the title character in Kurau: Phantom Memory. Rial also voiced lead characters Misao Shinohara, Sasami’s best friend in Sasami: Magical Girls Club; and heroine Asa Shigure in the harem comedy Shuffle!.

When Dragon Ball Z was remade as Dragon Ball Z Kai, in 2010, Rial got to voice the heroine character Bulma. She voiced other lead girl characters such as Miya Asami in Sekirei, May Chang in Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Tsubaki Nakatsukasa in Soul Eater and Ringo in Casshern Sins. Both Soul Eater and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood have had sizeable runs on Adult Swim’s Toonami block. She voiced the title character Mina Tepes in 2011, in Dance in the Vampire Bund, as well as several lead female characters in ensemble shows Rosario + Vampire, Highschool of the Dead and Fairy Tail, such as Yukari Sendou, Shizuka Marikawa and Mirajane Strauss respectively.

In 2012, Rial voiced more leads with Shiro in Deadman Wonderland which also broadcast on Adult Swim, Stocking in the raunchy comedy Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. She voiced the heroine character Haruko Amaya in 2013, in the harem comedy Maken-ki! and Iori Nagase in the school anime series Kokoro Connect. With regards to her lead role of Michiko Malandro in Michiko & Hatchin, which was released on DVD in 2013 and was broadcast on Adult Swim in 2015, she said that out of the 300 or so characters she had voiced, only two of them were Hispanic and she liked that her character wasn’t a stereotype. In 2014 and 2015, Rial voiced the title characters in the comedies Watamote and Maid Sama! as Tomoko Kuroki and Misaki Ayuzawa, respectively.

In addition to voice acting, she has been steadily involved in ADR script writing, with work in the English dubs for D.N. Madlax, Angel and Gatchaman. Rial said in an interview with Active Anime that she would “take the direct translation and write it into a coherent scene that matches the lip flaps”. At later anime conventions, she has mentioned that ADR script writing has kept her quite occupied, especially with simuldubs, which are shows that are locally dubbed soon after the original broadcast. Rial has also written columns for Newtype’s USA edition. Rial announced in January 2018, that she is taking time off of script adaptation.
