Rie Tanaka blushes as she hears awkward sounds from her Genshin Impact character
If you’ve been playing Genshin Impact (and you should), you’ll know that while the English dub is serviceable, the Japanese dub is where it’s at. The amount of talent included in the Japanese voice acting cast is off the charts. In particular, Rie Tanaka, who plays as Lisa in the game, has been quite the source of intellectual discussion among peers due to her constant… how do you even say it, “moaning” while climbing the many walls and mountains around the world of Genshin Impact.
Futsuika’s YouTube channel posted a short clip of Rie Tanaka herself playing the game while controlling her character, and the results are hilarious. Tanaka is embarrassed at the amount of lewd sounds while climbing and she even goes on to imitate her in-game lines during the stream.
Tanaka has her own YouTube channel where she has been streaming a lot of games like Fall Guys, Fate Grand Order, and most recently, Genshin Impact. As of this writing, the most recent video was actually a live stream of her playing Genshin Impact, and it is amusing to watch even if you don’t understand a word she is saying just because she sounds so animated using the character that she herself voiced.
Tanaka is a veteran voice actress that started her career way back in 1992 and has since made a name for herself with iconic roles such as Mitsuki from Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, Chii from Chobits, Lacus Clyne from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, and most recently Rosetta from Granblue Fantasy: The Animation.
Genshin Impact has been a big success for MiHoYo, who have expressed next-gen plans for the game. In its first 4 days alone, Genshin Impact had garnered over 17 million mobile downloads, which does not include PC and PS4 players.
