Rina-Chan to voice characters in official Hasbro App by





It's time to enter the happening bunkers kiddos and ride out this latest drama wave: Rina-Chan will be voicing something official for Hasbro!

Stuff after the break!





Rina-Chan aka Kira Buckland is a voice actress that has done many fan and small time projects for the once popular Newgrounds.com, MLP, and >Homestuck for years.

Recently, she has taken her talents to professional roles in many animu titles that are too Japanese to pronounce (but uh, if you Japanese qt 3.14's want to help me pronounce them i'll be more than happy to learn from you ;) ).

As of last year, Rina took a leave of voicing MLP projects out of the blue that lead many to believe she tried to jump off the ride.

Little to anyone's knowledge of course: she was not jumping off the ride, she was actually planning to make it a tad more bumpier.

Shit.

According to a source: she will be voicing primarily Twilight in the smartphone apps.

Reactions from /mlp/ range from "Meh" to "END OF THE FANDOM GUYZZZ!"

We spoke to resident Rinafag Slashy (after prying his cum and Cheetos stained Rina-Chan dakimakura from him for a official statement) and had this to say: "If she continues to stay out of the show and fandom, I really do not care."

Updates as they come in, but for now buckle up laddies, the ride is about to get a little bumpy.

*Disclaimer: Other than the statement from him, this article was 99.999% Slashy free* 


Update: She will also be voicing "nice guy" spike.

  1. It's not end of the fandom, but it is shitty.

    I don't get how she and Nowacking are supposed to be talented. I don't see it at all.

    1. It's more about that they've been consistently putting themselves out there and staying on the radar than it is how incredible their voices are. Rina and Nowacking are relatively open to collaborations and their work has been, at the very least, consistent for a long time compared to other female voice actors. And that goes both for within the pony fandom and in general online communities.

      I suppose you could say they're talented for a few reasons:

      1. Mic quality
      2. They work pretty fast
      3. They're at least not terribad at acting
      4. They've been doing it for a while

      Say what you want about their vocal skill, but in an environment as fast-moving as the internet, they've managed to stay near the top of the list of female VAs, without falling off the map because their most well-known appearances were on Machinimas or with Lyle and Dexter Manning. That takes no small amount of dedication to do that without burning out.

    2. Here's my question, how is Nowacking untalented?

    3. Nowacking was runner up at the @goldieawards. Eilemonty won but I think Rina-chan was in the top five. I think their all good. Have you HEARD Eilemonty doing Zecora's voice? Amazinf

    4. That's not answering my question. How is Nowacking untalented. That is, assuming you're answering my question.

    5. Rina Chan has a horrible nasaly voice, one that doesn't work for impersonating younger or cute characters. I guess hasbro wanted to save some cash and not have to sign any contracts by hiring 'outside talent' i.e. anyone they know exists. It's the same reason the brony docs keep happening it's all just expanding there brand with no real cost involved to Hasbro.

    6. How is she NOT untalented?

  2. Who cares?? What drama?? This is kinda petty. Glad to see the fandom has degenerated into people disliking voice actors/actresses for doing stuff outside of the fandom. A+, you guys.

    1. Bitch please. People have hated Runka-Chunk for far longer than the 4 years this "fandom" has been around.

    4. Wait people actually take encyclopedia dramatica seriously? I go on there for laughs and to see the worst representation of whatever topic I'm reading about. It's entire purpose is to shit all over the image of whatever topic you're reading.

    5. Some of it is actually pretty accurate, anon. And if you've ever met her at a con, you will see that what ED said about her is true. I personally guarantee it.

    6. Hold the fuck on a moment....Rina-chan has an ED page, but Final Draft doesn't.

      I.....what?

  4. This is just the start guys. There's more of these #HorseFamous destined to invade your official pone very soon. It's called "marketing".

    1. Mandopony's already played mandolin on the show and showed up in the background of a panel of the official comic, this shouldn't be new.

    2. Blackgryphon is following the same pattern, anon. It's gonna happen next season. It's gonna be a gryphon too, a singing gryphon.

    3. Fucking hell.......please....not HIM. Not motherfucking Blackgryph0n. I cannot stand him. No sailor or marine can stand him especially.

    4. Oh. Why is that? (Disclosure: Paper Sky is my favorite fan song)

  5. At least we still have Season 1 and 2.... to think the worst things people complained about was the CMC at one point...

  6. End of the fandom? Over voice acting in a money-grab shitfest pay-to-pony? Psh, you're getting soft in your old man-child age, anonymous.

    In an age where Twilight Princess and Daring Do Be Real are canon, I'm pretty sure if you're still here we've survived the ride.

    In the meanwhile, we have PurpleRosalyn and Wubcake material to enjoy. Mostly for the swearing and sexual content.

    Honestly. Rina-chan was the last straw? Weak.

    1. I would pay for PurpleRoselyn and Wubcake in my pone gamez.

  7. I'm happy for her too. I'm just not working up the 'sperg to act pessimistically uninterested.

  8. I'm honestly way more pissed over the fact that we are still getting retarded cheapo pay2win games.

  10. I would care less if Rina wasn't such a massive bitch. I had the "pleasure" of working with her once on a project I'm directing. She refused to talk to me directly, and demanded that I write in a new part specifically for her.

    I ended up dropping her, and from what I hear, she threw a tantrum over that.

  11. Couldn't they get someone that was actually good? All her voices sound the same. And she can't do jack shit for originality.

  12. The only good voice Runka-Chunk has ever done was that sexy Trixie monologue she made for Seth. I heard she was upset that it got leaked.

  13. You come into MY HOME shitting in MY BATHTUB and you don't even have the common decency to pay for MY COLLEGE?!*

    (*Anyone familiar with the Runka-Chunk days of yore when that atrocious Street Fighter Club of hers - as well as other animations from the low point of her 'career' - was still relevant will remember this classic)
