Tanaka’s most notable role to us is her voice role as Chii from Chobits. When that show came out it was just so different. For an anime, it was such a serious dramatic show. Her character was so sweet and the pairing on the show was even sweeter. The show would later spawn tons of lolita cosplay and Chii headsets. It brings back memories of how great that show was. Hopefully, we can sit down and get an interview with her.
