Rie Kugimiya is a prolific seiyuu working for the I'm Enterprise agency who is best known for her tsundere characters: Shakugan no Shana's Shana, Hayate no Gotoku!'s Nagi Sanzenin, Zero no Tsukaima's Louise, and most recently, both Toradora!'s Taiga Aisaka and Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka's Yuuhi Katagiri.

Kugimiya started voice acting in 1999, and her first starring role was Rizel in Rizelmine in 2002. In 2003 she achieved wide acclaim for voicing Alphonse Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist, a tricky role involving a young boy living with a suit of armor as his body. In 2005 she took on one of the aforementioned seminal tsundere roles, Shana, with her first appearance as Louise coming in 2006 and Nagi in 2007.

Kugimiya Disease

If you know more than 3 of these characters, you probably already carry the disease!

She is also the main role of the (in)famous Kugimiya Disease (釘宮病). For only observation purposes, this video contains the disease in high amounts; handle with care.

The symptoms of this dire sickness are:

  • A sudden liking in to pettanko characters.
  • A sudden liking in to tsundere characters.
  • A sudden liking in to high-knee socks.
  • A sudden masochistic desire to get scolded.

With no current cure, the disease only spreads, with no precaution against it. This obssessive disease created a new profit way for many shops though, with ' Special Kugumiya Stand's adorning their shelves. These shelves provide the necessities for the disease carrying people to live.
