Risa Taneda (種田 梨沙, Taneda Risa, born July 12, 1988) is a Japanese voice actress and singer affiliated with Office Osawa talent agency.[1] She is also a member of the seiyuu idol unit Rhodanthe* (ローダンセ) since 2013, along with Nao Tōyama, Asuka Nishi, Manami Tanaka and Yumi Uchiyama.[2] Some of her major roles are Rize Tedeza in Is the Order a Rabbit?, Kaori Miyazono in Your Lie in April, Erina Nakiri in Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma, Yukina Himeragi in Strike the Blood, Kotoha Tanaka in The Idolmaster Million Live!, and Ai Mizuno in Zombieland Saga.


At the 7th grade, Taneda first learned about voice acting and became interested in it after listening to radio programs hosted by voice actors. Meanwhile, Taneda was also into the fantasy world of Harry Potter series. "I want to play in the series!" aspired Taneda. She then started self-practicing the voice acting skills in her middle school years.[3]

In 2007, Taneda went to university in Tokyo. She majored in Design and later graduated with a Bachelor of Arts. Taneda also holds a certification as middle school art teacher. While in the university, Taneda began to intern at the voice acting agency Office Osawa, and was successfully converted to an affiliated voice actress after an audition[4].

In Oct 2011, Taneda made her voice acting debut as a narrator in the short anime series Sakura no Ondo (桜の温度).

In Sep 2012, Taneda voiced her very first title character Saki Watanabe in the anime series From the New World[1]. She also performed the ending theme Warate Ringo (割れたリンゴ) and hosted a mini television program The Chronicle of From the New World (新世界よりクロニクル) on TV Asahi Channel (テレビ朝日CS). Although being her first main role, Taneda demonstrated impressive voice acting skills and played the three different ages of Saki Watanabe very well throughout the series. Later on, her career boomed and voiced in many notable works, including Rize Tedeza in Is the Order a Rabbit?, Kaori Miyazono in Your Lie in April, Erina Nakiri in Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma, and Kotoha Tanaka in The Idolmaster Million Live!'.

In 2013, Taneda voiced one of the main role Aya Komichi (小路綾) in the anime Kin-iro Mosaic along with Nao Tōyama, Asuka Nishi, Manami Tanaka and Yumi Uchiyama. The cast later forms the seiyuu idol unit Rhodanthe* (ローダンセ).

On September 1, 2016, Office Osawa announced that Taneda would put her career on hiatus to focus on treatment for her throat.[5][6]

On August 4, 2017, Office Osawa announced that her treatment was successful and she would gradually return to voice acting.[7]
