While she's most well know for her 'Cutesy' roles in 4Kids' Dubs, I myself am most fond of her Eerie and Sombre work as Lala-Ru in 'Now and Then, Here and There'.

Excellent Show of her Vocal Range.

I've always liked Lisa Ortiz, but I don't think I ever truly appreciated her until here recently. Her voice has a lot more range than you'd expect, and I have yet to hear a single disappointing performance from her. Even in the most meh of dubs, she's always one of the standouts.

I remember when the Queen's Blade dub first came out some fans were freaking out that Lisa Ortiz was it in. Personally I thought she was great. Her Echidna voice sounds HAWT and Melona was pretty good too. Glad to see she's got a secure paycheck indefinitely directing the Pokemon dub; doubt it'll ever reach pre-2006 quality again but considering the iffy work her predecessor did there's only room for improvement right?

I know I'm two days late, but Happy Birthday Lisa Ortiz, really enjoyed your voice over work in the Pokemon franchise and glad you are the voice director for the show.

I used to have this Yu-Gi-Oh! magazine when I was growing up and I remember reading this interview they had with Lisa Ortiz and that her favourite characters growing up were Starscream and Cobra Commander.

Just thought it'd be neat to share this bit of trivia.

She should play Slipstream sometime.

Happy Birthday, Lisa Ortiz! Her later performances as Amy Rose (i.e. Unleashed, Black Knight) convinced me that she was the definitive VA for that character. My other favorite Ortiz performances include Sabrina, Flannery, Oshawott, Lina Inverse, Rina, Serenity Wheeler, Blair Flannigan, Bunwa Kaku, and Tony Tony Chopper.

Sorry to dissapoint, but Blair Flannigan was Liza Jacqueline (Bloom from Winx Club).

Is Lisa still living in New York? Or did she re-locate to California?
said at 5:23 PM on Sat Oct 8 2016
Still in New York, directing a little show called Pokemon you might be familiar with (among other things).

Noembelu was just a one-time thing that she and Melissa Hope got to be in... somehow.

@rosebr10 I'd say she'll go for NYAV Post, she'll get more work here, without a doubt.

So she's going to be the new ADR director for Pokemon.

I really don't know how to feel about this.

I wish her luck on this.

@Autovolt Well there's one thing to be happy about. We know it's a voice actress's who has been working on the show since season 1. So I think she'll do at least an okay job.

Looking back I think it was her Serenity that allowed me to lock on to her sound. Still no doubt Pokemon was, and still is, good bread and butter for her; Sabrina was the standout of her Kanto crew, though Lily the Spellcaster is one of my personal favorites. Even so a far greater spellcaster reigns supreme. Hmm, funny how that all lines up.

Anything left to say? Oh yeah.

Happy Birthday to the VA turned VO-Director. Long may she reign.

Happy Birthday Lisa Ortiz!

Definitely another 4Kids VA I enjoyed hearing back when I was growing up. It's pretty crazy that she's been in the voice acting industry for almost 20 years now, especially making her debut in one of the major anime classics....The Slayers!

I've said this before here on this site that she was perfect as Lina Inverse in just about every way. Lina's such a fun female protagonist and character. She's a perfect balance of being funny, intelligence and nails the battle cries too. At an age when dubbing still hadn't been perfected, the first time I ever watched The Slayers, I felt the moment I heard Lisa's voice for Lina, I thought she was perfect from the get-go and considering how bad a lot of the supporting VA's were, especially like the original voices for Zelgadis, Amelia and Rezo were, it really says a lot, and of course she only kept getting better and better with each passing season.

She also doubled really nicely as The Lord of Nightmares too, showing off a bit more of a deeper tone that we really hadn't seen her do before. I wish she'd be able to play more characters in a voice or tone like that.

She was also excellent on Pokemon as gym leader Sabrina and Flannery....even her Oshawott was cute too, and I also loved her performances as Serenity Wheeler, Amy Rose, Jhanna, Rina, Anna and her Tony Tony Chopper was also another great example of the range she actually is capable of.

It still feels surreal to me that she's now directing Pokemon's dub.

That said while I haven't watched Psychic School Wars dub yet, it's really cool that she got to direct something that wasn't Pokemon related. Really cool that she finally got to direct Kevin T. Collins in something.

I'll eventually check the dub out for it sometime soon but I am excited to see that one, for its cast full of underused and underappreciated talents.

Also it's pretty cool she voiced in Street Fighter V.

Happy Birthday Lisa Ortiz!

I think her Amy is a little overrated. Her voice is cute but there's not much range. She uses the same voice for every emotion Amy has.

Happy Birthday Lisa, one of the best actresses in the NY scene. Even if I didn't care for 4kids dubs/shows, she was always one of the standouts to me, and gave some of the best performances. Great job as Amy Rose, Tony Tony Chopper, Lina Inverse, Sabrina, Serenity Wheeler, Alicia Whistle, Musa, Icy, Kaku Bunwa, Oshawott, Fletchling, and Tomomi among others!!!

@DravenRoth994 I messed up there a bit, I did like their dubs for Pokémon (the early episodes at least), and Yu-Gi-Oh (aside from some silly edits like changing the agents pointing their guns at Kaiba, to them.......pointing their fingers?!). Their dub for Winx Club was decent from the little I watched, and I liked their TMNT series too......from the little I watched.

@UK-Otaku No idea. Maybe she was at a Texas-based convention when Funimation came across her and offered her a chance to audition.

Saw a recent episode of Pokémon a while back. I recognized her as Korrina the minute she started talking. It's nice that she was brought back to the franchise, along with Jason Griffith, Ted Lewis, and David Brimmer among others!! Ever since the dissolve of 4kids, the NY actors have been on tough times!! How bittersweet!!!

To those who say she lacks range, watch this:

Sure, she may not be the most versatile actress, but she has far more range than she's given credit for. I didn't know she could do that. Though, that's mostly because I haven't heard enough of her work. Back when I watched 4kids, she was always one of the stand outs to me at the time. I'd like to hear more of her work at some point.

Deedlit in "Record of Lodoss War" was the first time I ever heard her voice. It became and remains one of my favorite roles from her. Although I gotta say, her Lina Inverse is similarly terrific. Seriously, though, I've loved everything I've heard her voice in. She IS a seriously underrated voice actress; she has a lot more range and versatility than given credit for.

I really really want you back as Amy Rose Lisa, because Amy's new actor is (didn't mean to be a bit offensive) extremely awful!!! :'(
Your so awesome as Amy no matter what.
Thank You. ^_~
