Happy Birthday, Rica Matsumoto! For real, she's been voicing Ash Ketchum/Satoshi the longest out of any of that character's VAs and still sounds great in the role; at times, I feel as if she's actually better than Veronica Taylor (take note of "at times"). Satoshi aside, I also enjoyed Matsumoto's performances as Laomoto Chiba, Ryo/Yami Bakura, Musashi, Chiro, and Gon Freecss.

Looks like Rica is saying goodbye to Yuji yet again: first with Takeshi (Brock) and now Greninja (Gekkouga)- her acting's in top form as usual, too. The music score and dialogue definitely add to the scene.

Her Yami Bakura is AWESOME!!! And that laugh is legendary! Seriously, that felt so real, that I actually felt Bakura's evil just from listening to that laugh XD
