Much like last week, I must admit that while I have admired capable voice acting for quite some time, I generally know very little about individual voice actresses. So, once again, I am drawing heavily on other people’s work on Youtube to provide material.
And, again, as I want to keep political diatribe off my blog, I am not picking anyone currently involved in anything like unto such, no matter how much I’ve enjoyed their work.
Finally… unlike voice actors, there were so many voice actresses I wanted to pick, I finally just pretty much hit “random” in my brain! So, with no further ado, I present my picks for five voice actresses from anime! 🙂
1) Laura Bailey
Easy on the eyes and on the ears, Laura Bailey’s voice can be found all over anime and gaming both, including Jaina in the Warcraft series and, in anime, Maka Albarn, Tohru Honda, Lust the Lascivious, and dozens of others. She can range anywhere from adorably sweet to deep and sultry, and I love every bit of it! 🙂
2) Brina Palencia
I have no idea if this scene actually makes any sense, as I’ve yet to see Rolling Girls, but Brina Palencia can obviously sing in a not-annoying way, and how many Western voice actors can we really say that about, eh? 😉
She is Holo the Wise Wolf and Juvia Lockser, and Ciel Phantomhive and… wait, she’s Chopper?! Wow, I totally did not recognize her voice as Tony Tony Chopper! Very well done! 🙂
And, yes, I noticed that she, too, is easy on the eyes. 😉
3) Cherami Leigh
A video from the lady herself, from 2017, I think. 😉
She’s Lucy Heartfilia, Yuuki Asuna, Patty Thompson, Lizzy Midford from Black Butler, and, a personal favorite, she’s Mai Taniyama in Ghost Hunt.
Yes, she’s pretty too, but I swear I’m not picking only pretty ones, it’s just that women are beautiful! 😉
4) Luci Christian
…she voices my crush, Nami, which is obviously my favorite role she plays, and it’s nowhere in this video… (sad face!)
She’s also Honey-senpai, and Kaname Chidori, and none other than Medusa Gorgon! Cool! (not-sad face!) 🙂
5) Brittany Karbowski
I have heard this sweet, enticing voice all over the place, and she is always so spellbinding and lively! I swear, I could listen to her reading the phone book! But I think my favorite role with her is actually as a more minor character in Spice and Wolf, a bar maiden who flirts shamelessly with Lawrence, and clearly likes him, but it’s still all in good fun and she doesn’t push it. She manages to convey all of that with such a scintillating voice, I just love it! 🙂
So, that’s my five picks. And, once again, there were so many to choose from! Who would you have picked? 😀
