EDITOR'S OPINIONIn this G.I Joe Voice Compare we have a little something for the sole female member of the Dreadnoks... ZARANA! We shall begin the original G.I Joe series Lisa Raggio was the one to voice Zarana here. The Dreadnoks are a Australian-based biker gang and the members have either Australian or British (generally Cockney) accents and Lisa pulls off the accent fairly well. Lisa Raggio's performance was also pretty suiting for Zarana whether she is trying to prove herself to her brother or being demanding to the other Dreadnoks (and her occasional softer side as well). But still Lisa Raggio's overall work as Zarana is pretty good though and a good example of the voice work in the original G.I Joe series. (Not too mention on how while Australian accented men are pretty common in fiction, Australian accented Women are a little less common which does give Lisa Raggio's work as Zarana a little bit more of a novelty.)
While Zarana wasn't as fortunate as Zartan in appearing outside of the original series (but to be fair she did better than Zandar who as of yet is only in the original series) but she was in the DiC G.I Joe series as Lisa Corps gets to take over the role. While I am not bothered about how Lisa Corps Zarana voice is higher (since Raggio's voice wasn't all that low to begin with) but Lisa Corps' attempt at the accent is lighter than Lisa Raggio's and perhaps its a bit too too light. Oh sure Lisa Raggio's attempt at an Australian accent is not really thick but is a bit more noticeable but still aside from that detail Lisa Corps' work as Zarana is decent enough I suppose, not one of the better performances in the DiC series but not the worst. Overall in this battle of the Lisa's I shall go with Lisa Raggio a bit more here.
