Voice Compare » Evangelion » Rei Ayanami
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Rei Ayanami with sound clips and images.
Rei Ayanami is known as the First Child, which refers to her being the first pilot of an Evangelion (her designation is mainly to Unit-00). She is the most enigmatic character throughout the series/movies. Rei is socially withdrawn and reclusive and while she appears to lack emotion, when tasked on a mission, she is fully dedicated and doesn't hesitate to do whatever is needed to get the job done.
EDITOR'S OPINIONWhile the voices from both actors are a perfect fit for Rei, it's the deliberate pacing, speech patterns and extremely held back emotion of Amanda Winn Lee that captures Rei's personality much more than Brina Palencia. The lightness in Amanda's tone really makes Rei more endearing and once her origins are revealed, you empathize with the character even more. Brina brings a quiet confidence to Rei but makes her sound too comfortable around others.
