[Honey’s Anime Interview] Tia Ballard – Voice of Happy, Zero Two, Kagura Sohma, and More!

Tia Ballard has been in the voice acting business since 2010 and has voiced some of your favorite heroes in anime. She’s best known for bubbly and cute characters like Happy from Fairy Tail and Shao Mei from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, but she has recently branched out with roles like the mature Zero Two from Darling in the Franxx. We sat down for a chat with her at Colossalcon in Sandusky, Ohio, and she opened up about all kinds of things: her motherly instinct towards the characters she plays, the unusual route she took to become a voice actor, and even her love of gardening. Let’s hear what she has to say!

How Did Hiro Mashima Become a Mangaka?

The power of hype and friendship is strong with this one—it’s Hiro Mashima! This prolific mangaka is best known for the shounen classic RAVE (which is called Rave Master in the West) and the bombastic magical quest known as Fairy Tail. If you’re looking for a fantastical story with a mixture of (slightly ecchi) comedy and hype-tastic fight scenes that run on raw emotion instead of cold logic, then Mashima is the author for you.

Today, we’re taking a closer look at Mashima’s career—his debut, his highs and lows, and what he’s up to now that Fairy Tail has ended. What is it that makes his work special, and has he kept up that same quality over his 20 years of publishing? Power up your magic with the help of your friends and join us!

Goku is a great character on his own, but he wouldn’t be nearly as awesome without his signature Kamehameha or Super Saiyan transformation. That’s what he’s known for and it’s how he defeats any enemy who stands in his way.

Top 10 Characters Who Wield the Power of Darkness

Fear of the darkness is something deeply ingrained in us as humans – what waits in the shadows could very well kill us without even having to defend itself. So in the pantheon of superpowers, it’s no surprise that plenty of fictional characters have mastery over the terrifying element of darkness. And over the years, anime has shown us far more creative applications for shadows and darkness than we could ever think of.
