  • Quotes

    • Clarine: (On DVD Productions) My job duties include heavy scheduling, coordinating translations and subtitles, writing menu instructions, helping plan extra features, proofreading, quality control, gathering elements to author, etc. There is a lot of multi-tasking and planning in advance to ensure we produce a quality product in the timeframe we are provided.

    • Clarine: (On Miss Katz) Miss Katz, is one the most fun and enjoying character to voice. I think it is because we have so much in common.

    • Clarine: (On Senae) I think Senae is one of the smarter intellectual characters I have voiced. She tends to be more wise and mature.

    • Clarine: (On Ginza) Ginza was one of my most challenging roles I've voiced in my entire career while working under FUNimation.

    • Clarine: (On Speed Grapher) Coming from an actor's standpoint, it was that rare show when you sit down and look at the first episode, you're hooked. You want to understand what's happening.

    • Clarine: (On the character Sei) Sei is the most downright sexiest character I have voiced in my entire career.

    • Clarine: (On Speed Grapher) I feel Speed Grapher emphasizes the dual nature of people. This is evidenced by Kagura and her Goddess counterpart, the metamorphosis of humans to Euphorics, and on a larger scale, the people of wealth and privilege frequenting the underground club. Everyone is spotted there from members of the clergy to high-ranking politicians. These people are respected in regular society, so this makes the reality even more disconcerting. Suitengu understands the duality and corruption of human nature and exploits it for his own underlying reasons. The show reminds me a little of Fight Club, in that respect.

    • Clarine: (On the characters, Sei and Ginza) The back stories of Sei from Burst Angel and Ginza from Speed Grapher are really interesting in that there is a level of depth and purpose to their actions. Sei tends to mask her emotions, while Ginza is ruled by hers. The opportunity to provide their voices has been a wonderful and challenging experience.

    • Clarine: (On her fans) I want to say that I really appreciate all of the support I have seen from fans. From several hundred attendees at local anime conventions ten years ago, to thousands today, the industry has grown so much. I am often overwhelmed at the sheer numbers, and I am happy that interest has grown enough for people to have jobs they really enjoy. I couldn't think of a better incentive to work hard, so thank you everyone!

    • Clarine: (On knitting) Knitting is a relatively new hobby, which I picked up a little over a year ago. I am a craft enthusiast and also enjoy scrap booking, cross-stitching, embroidery and sewing. Knitting is the most portable hobby I have, especially since soft-edged needles are allowed on airplanes. This really comes in handy when I am traveling to conventions. I think more than one person has seen me knitting on panels…

    • Clarine: (On the character Kaede from Negima) Although I would have loved to have been a ninja in school, Kaede and I are similar in the fact that we both kept to ourselves. Kaede also tends to have a maternal instinct when it comes to her friends, so I would like to think we have that in common as well.
