Rie Tanaka, the seiyuu voicing Lisa in the Japanese dub of Genshin Impact, has been regularly streaming the game on her YouTube Channel, Tanaka Rie no Neesan TV. Rie Tanaka started streaming Genshin Impact when the game launched on September 28, on PC, PS4, iOS, and Android. Since then, she’s been at it multiple times per week, for around one or two hours. Four streams happened so far. The latest one was on October 8.

The streams are incredibly funny to listen to as Rie Tanaka is acting as if she’s Lisa herself, playing the game and commenting everything. She’s streaming directly from PS4, and only on YouTube. Needless to say she’s only speaking in Japanese. If you can understand the language, and if you’re a seiyuu aficionados, it’s pretty fun to skim through and listen in. I definitely wish I had the time to watch every stream.

Rie Tanaka became really popular worldwide after voicing Lacus Clyne in Gundam Seed and Chi in Chobits, both in 2002. Her role as Lacus most notably demonstrated she’s an incredible singer. Rie Tanaka is also voicing Neptune in Neptunia. She’s also voicing Kiara Sesshouin in Nasuverse, so she’s very popular among a younger Japanese audience who discovered her with FGO.

Rie Tanaka is streaming on YouTube for a while now. Many seiyuu recently opened YouTube channels. Especially with the Covid-19 stay home measures in mid 2020. You’ve most notably got the 4Gamer produced show Wasyaganatv with Yuichi Nakamura and Mafia Kajita. Tomokazu Sugita (Yusuke in Persona 5) regularly talks about his figures or anime and manga memories on AGRS. Asami Sanada of Di Gi Chara, Date A Live fame does muscle training videos. Tomokazu Seki opened his YouTube channel as well.

Rie Tanaka is also the kind of otaku who really loves sexy-type female characters. These days for her FGO streams, she pretty much cosplays every new costume Kiara gets. So it’s possible she’ll cosplay Genshin Lisa one day too.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Lisa is by far the most stereotypical character you get in Genshin Impact. However, Genshin gets everything right about Japanese games. And this includes having characters who seem very cliché at first turning out to be pretty unique as you play and learn more about them.

DualShockers recently interviewed miHoYo, who most notably revealed Inazuma is the next region coming to Genshin Impact. The other new regions of Genshin Impact were teased as well. The game is also close to 20 million downloads on mobile alone. Sure, probably one quarter of that are reroll accounts or bots, but it’s still impressive.
