On July 11 this year, voice actress Monica Rial announced a giveaway on social media, in which the winner was announced on July 18. Who was the grand prize winner? Despite the odds, it was … me.
Here’s the package:
This is what was inside:
A plethora of characters she voices is displayed on various items: a DVD set, a pillow, a Dragon Ball Z shirt, socks, autographed pictures with a personalized message, etc.!
Look! A box of Dragon Ball buttons with the lid signed by three Dragon Ball Super stars: Eric Vale (Future Trunks), Linda Young (Frieza) and Monica Rial (Bulma)!
Ms. Rial is probably best known for her role on Dragon Ball as Bulma, the genius inventor and wife of Vegeta. Over the years she has racked up an impressive array of credits voicing primarily anime characters. Check out her list here, here (with images), and at IMDb.com. Of the hundreds of characters she’s voiced, I’m familiar with Bulma and Oracle Fish from Dragon Ball Super, Kuro from Restaurant to Another World, and Izumi Himuro from Princess Nine–whose fiery personality is very much like Vegeta.
It’s great to receive these gifts from such a talented, prolific actress. To Monica Rial, thank you very much for your generosity. Looking forward to “hearing” more of your work!
