Ah Felicia, not only is she quite possibly the most borderline nudist buxom beauty in her genre she is of course the patron saint of the fetish that is the catgirl. So lets see how this Darkstalkers Fan Favorite fare for the Voice Compare.

First of all is Lisa Ann Beley in the American Darkstalkers series, and while as we all know lets just say her depiction in the American show definitely had its problems to put it mildly but her voice work wasn't one of them. In fact I would actually say that Lisa's voice work for Felicia was probably one of the better performances in the show.

Next up we have Janyse Jaud who voiced Felicia in the English dub for the Darkstalkers anime. Janyse Jaud is definitely no strange to lets just say voicing a "Ms. Fanservice" role, though this is one of the few times she gets a role like this in which one of her occasionally used higher voices is necessary. While I admit I would picture Janyse Jaud in the role of Morrigan Aensland a bit more she definitely works well as Felicia too.

While when it comes to how they depict Felicia in general the Anime is obviously the winner here. But as for voice work to be honest I am actually not sure as both definitely do work.

(Update: Melissa Fahn voiced her in Cross Edge and she was a fine choice as well for the role too, so nothing has changed really.)

I've been getting pretty used to G.K. Bowes' take lately. I think out of all the high-pitched actresses here, she sounds the most natural and cute.

Lisa Ann Beley... I admit, I'm kinda biased since Lisa is one of my favorite Vancouver VAs, but she doesn't do a half-bad job here. Too bad her version of the character had to be paired with the awkward kid character of Harry.

Janyse Jaud is good, but I felt her delivery could get wonky at times.

Melissa Fahn sounds pretty forced, especially when you compare her to G.K.

Honestly, my favorite out of these ladies is Janyse Jaud. I like it when Janyse does higher voices and this is one of her best. My vote goes to her.

GK Bowes and Melissa Fahn are also good.

Lisa Ann Beley sounds a bit bland. Not one of her best works.

I'm pretty sure Melissa and GK are closer to the Japanese voice but I don't like how high pitched it is so I have to go with Janyse 'Sarah' Jaud and Lisa but I will go with Janyse since I prefer the OVA over the toons
1 Janyse
2 Lisa

I would say...GK Bowes, though Janyse Jaud was pretty good too.

I prefer Janyse Jaud. Not the voice I was expecting, but it sounds fitting. Fahn was definitely out-of-the-question, and Bowes is just too squeaky for me. I don't need to say anything for Beley...

Personally, I technically chose Bowes, which she clearly fits Felicia's persona... Fahn did alright, but I found this to be one of her weaker roles... Compare Felicia's voice in Cross Edge to Ninamori from FLCL or Gaz from Invader Zim, and then I just thought to myself that Melissa Fahn did better roles in the past. As for Janyse Jaud, she typically fits Felicia in the anime, considering it's about as dark as the games, but in another things such as MvC3 or Cross Edge, I'd have left her out. And for Beley, I really don't care that much considering that the show is probably another horrible thing to come out just like Captain N or even Street Fighter... But I never know because I haven't watched it, just heard many people speaking negatively about it. Overall, does anybody other than me think looking at the updated image of Felicia next to Lisa's is revolting? And do you also think that Darkstalkers is a little underrated, always outshined by the likes of Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat?

I'm going with GK Bowes. Felicia's supposed to be a carefree, playful type, and she captured it best.

@NCZ I seem to agree with this statement, however... I do like Janyse Jaud's take on the character a little more! But maybe that's because the revealing nature of that anime had a storyline in between the first two Darkstalkers installments. Melissa Fahn on the other hand, is another example on what you said about GK Bowes. Yet she seems to whiny and a little bit of the same of some of her known voicework... *Ouch* My head hurts and now I'm a furrie!

@TheSwedishElf In terms of English voices, I think Gina was best. IMO, Melissa Fahn has all the qualities you just stated, and I don't mind the "friends" issue, because they're such minor characters and they all look alike anyway.

@TheSwedishElf That's just your opinion, though. Please don't turn this into a flame war.

@TheSwedishElf Meh, I just want to keep the comments clean. Right after I posted that, I realized "flame war" wasn't the best wording, but whatever.
