Standing in the booth, after voicing her first character in Tsubasa: The Reservoir Chronicles in 2008, Terri Doty knew what she wanted to do – make nachos. And that she wanted to keep working in the world of anime.
Since then, she has lent her voice to a multitude of characters, like, Alice Kiriki in Okamisan & Her Seven Companions, Virgo/Jellal Fernandes (young) in Fairy Tail, Ohara in Deadman Wonderland (which just finished airing on Toonami), Tsunami in Fractale, Yuuka Koyama/Yuuji Sakamoto (young) in Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts, Nella/Jiji in Dance in the Vampire Bund, Kamika Todoroki in Corpse Princess (aka Shikabane Hime), Naia in The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Festum in Fafner: Dead Aggressor: Heaven & Earth, and Maria in Black Butler, just name a few.
Terri interned at Funimation Entertainment shortly before graduating college. Then she was offered a job as Voice Director for such shows as Big Windup!, RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne, Corpse Princess, Rideback, and Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts. She has also written adaptive scripts for Corpse Princess and Initial D: Fourth Stage.
In early 2010, Terri teamed up J. Michael Tatum and Stephen Hoff to start “That Anime Show,” a podcast that occasionally talks about anime among randomness. Colleagues from the anime industry visit T.A.S. and give listeners an…interesting look into their unpredictable, and often hilarious, lives. That Anime Show is available for download through www.thatanimeshow.com and Itunes.
Stephen has been perfecting his skills as an audio engineer for the better part of a decade. His career began by attending Media Tech (formerly known as Dallas Sound Lab) and interning at Eagle Audio. Its worth mentioning that Stephen is just one of several Funimation Entertainment regulars in the audio scene that also studied there. Other Dallas Sound Lab alumni include: Kenneth Thompson, Andrew Tipps, Adrian Cook, and Nathanael Harrison.
For the past several years, Stephen has had the fortune of working on several anime titles: Fractale, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, & Steins;Gate with Colleen Clinkenbeard, Black Butler (both seasons) with Ian Sinclair, Linebarrels of Iron with Caitlin Glass, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone with Mike McFarland, and Sgt. Frog with Joel McDonald. Other credits include Fairy Tail, Heroic Age, Initial D, Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, Full Metal Alchemist, Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino, and One Piece.
Along with anime, Stephen has a fondness for doing sound for live venues, films, and podcasts. He has engineered at Fort Worth's Ridglea Theater and Deep Ellum's Red Blood Club. You can occasionally catch Mr. Hoff running sound for Stephanie Young's band, The Brehms (www.thebrehmsband.com) . His film work includes the low budget film, Kodie. Stephen is also the audio mastermind behind the podcast .That Anime Show. (www.thatanimeshow.com).
