Kira Buckland

Kira Buckland (formerly known by her online alias “Rina-chan”) is a voice actress residing in Southern California.

From 2012-2015, she was active in the My Little Pony fan community, often playing Twilight Sparkle, “Colgate”/Minuette, and others in fanworks and parodies as well as producing her own content. She also collaborated with a variety of musicians as an EDM vocalist and (very occasional) DJ, and helped emcee at various conventions and events. She was later able to provide voicematches for several of the Mane 6 in a somewhat official capacity on the PlayDate My Little Pony storybook apps for iOS.

These days, she regularly provides voices for video games (NieR: Automata, Fire Emblem Heroes, Danganronpa 2 & V3, Tales of Zestiria, Dead or Alive 5, Skullgirls, etc) and anime (Love Live! School Idol Project, Accel World, Sailor Moon, Blue Exorcist, Asterisk War, and many more.) In her free time she’s usually out catching Pokemon, rescuing kittens, or living up to her “espresso” cutie mark by drinking copious amounts of coffee.

As someone who has been with Equestria LA since its humble beginnings, she is very excited to be returning this year and hopes to help inspire others along their journeys. Follow her on Twitter (@rinachan), Instagram (@killercoffeequeen) or Facebook (/KiraVoices!)
