Melissa sounds best as younger girls (especially playful ones like Neptune and Ed), but she manages to hold her own on deeper pitched females as well, such as Purple Heart, Rider and Miyako (Kannazuki no Miko). She's an amazing VA, and I'm looking forward to seeing her get cast in more video games and shows.

I'm watching Cowboy Bebop at long last, and her voice as Ed sounds so incredibly familiar. I've looked through her filmography and I know its not her I'm thinking of... but another voice actress that sounds so much like her. I mean, almost exactly... same pitch, tone, even a very similar rhythm of speech. They are especially similar in her non-dialouge sounds... the yells, laughs, squeals and such..

But I can't for the life of me remember the actress or the character... though it's JUST on the edge of my memory. Especially the character... I can just about remember the character and its just as energetic as Ed is!

Any ideas who it might be? I thought for moment it might have been Luci Christian... and although they do sound similar, especially as Honey from Ouran, that's not who I'm thinking of.

Maybe Alexis Tipton or Bryn Apprill... I dunno. It's not a big deal, it's just bugging me that I can't remember.

Happy (albeit late) birthday Melissa Fahn

If there's a role that defines her career well, it's Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV from Cowboy Bebop. I mean how can you not love a great performance from one of the greatest dubs ever made. Energetic, adorable and weird, Melissa fit in her like a hand on a glove.

While she's generally been typecast into the "genki girl" type characters, her range is actually much wider than thought, as shown with Ray Beams and Purple Heart, all of which have her use a much lower registry, and it was a pretty good change of pace from her usual mold. Another, and more recent example, is Rider, but she has barely any lines so we'll have to see Heaven's Feel for her to finally fully voice her.

Other noteworrhy performances include Eri Ninamori, Rika Nonaka, Gaz, and Neptune. It would be awesome if she gets more roles in the future so she can use her career to its fullest.

Happy Birthday Melissa Fahn!!

Loved her roles as Rika Nonaka (Digimon Tamers), Edward Wong (Cowboy Bebop), and her recemt role as Rider (Fate Stay/Night Unlimited Blade Works).

She definitely deserves to appear in more voice over work.

Happy Birthday, Melissa! I still remember when I used to fawn over this VA. She was really good as Gaz, Neptune, Ninamori, Radical Ed, and Ray.

Her Rider was so unexpectedly good. Sounded like Yuu Asakawa's. Awesome VA. She's also VERY cute as well.

@AntiSabat666 Makes me more impatient for Heaven's Feel since we barely got to hear her in UBW. Just another thing to look forward to about HF I guess. Haha

@AntiSabat666 I knew she was going to use the Purple Heart voice with her.

I'm thrown off. She did a ton of stuff when I was younger and then she was basically gone until Neptunia. Hopefully her career picks back up again.

I love her as Tia! She just brought so much to that character.

Happy Birthday Melissa Fahn!

How can you not love her as Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV from Cowboy Bebop? She was just so cute and energetic as her. I have to say she has a pretty impressive range as well to also do Ray Beams, I was very surprised to hear her do a mature sounding character, that was a pretty cool surprise.

She definitely needs to be cast more often.
said at 4:25 AM on Thu Apr 28 2016
It's a shame Rider had like almost no lines of dialogue in Fate Stay/Night Unlimited Blade Works.

Especially since she showed some real potential as Rider, it was great to hear her in her lower registry again and she definitely fits the role really well...perhaps she may fit the role better than Karen Strassman ever could have?

Hopefully she'll get her time to shine as Rider when the Heaven's Feel movies come out.

Happy Birthday Melissa Fahn!

@Metabad The pronunciations in that dub really bothered me. Saying Char Aznable as Char(As in char-broiled) Znabull instead of Shar Aznable really got on my nerves.
said at 5:38 PM on Sat Mar 8 2014
@Nightmare Crusher I haven't really seen that dub in all honesty, I just heard it in the clip, but yeah it did sound REALLY distracting. I guess the fact that they mispronounced names as well didn't help much either.

I keep forgetting she's an anime voice actor.

Melissa Fahn is one of my most favorite anime voice actors. She rocked as the voice of Rika from the Digimon series. I hope she plays as Rika again when Digimon Fusion is complete in the english dub. In fact, I bet she'd be perfect to play as a teenage girl looking for excitement in her life. One who starts off as an incredibly pretty face with lots of friends.

She's had quite a few good roles, but my favorite would have to be Rika from Digimon Tamers, naturally.

Happy Birthday Melissa! :-D
