|Rini's Dub Voice|
I have a bone to pick with you guys, however, I hope this is not considered a flame, because I have no intention of flaming. I love your site. Long live SMU!
After reading countless episode comparisons over and over again, I've noticed that you tend to dislike squeaky voices. Now, since it's the year 2005 and all, and Sailor Moon isn't on TV anymore, my only method of seeing the dub is through bilingual DVDs. I'm not sure if the voices are different for the dub part of the DVDs, but if they're exactly the same...read on. After watching the bilingual DVDs multiple times, I can now say that I have _NEVER_ heard a more annoying, gag-inducing voice than the voice of Rini for the S/SuperS seasons. Let's list all the things that I believe it is, shall we?
Funny. These are all parts of Rini's voice, which you love and think to be the "cutest thing in the world", yet you oppose these things in other characters. Take Fish-eye for example. Hers...well, to tell you the truth, I didn't find her voice to be all that squeaky, but you guys certainly did. You oppose Fish-Eye squeakiness but support the horror that is Dub-Chibiusa's voice. I think that the voice actress (Stephanie Beard) has had no prior experience and is either trying too hard, or not trying hard enough. Sure, Rini sounded like a spoiled brat in the R season, but at least it fit her character for the time! My friend Colada-chan agrees wholeheartedly.
I know I'm taking a big risk by going against a voice you love so much, but this is my honest opinion.
