EDITOR'S OPINION

Alright folks for this Voice Compare we have Lady Kikyo whom well lets just say has a bit of a history with the Title character. In the English dub that we see in North America she is voiced by Willow "Kasumi Tendo" Johnson in which this is one of her most known and fairly renowned performances and to be honest I can fairly see why. Willow had a nice moderate tone in which does give a delicate refined air without making Kikyo sound too stuffy and Willow was by all means able to capture the emotional tone of the character without coming off as overdone. Overall a good performance and is a fine example of the voice work in that show.

In the Animax Asia English dub released for the Southeast Asia TV Market some local talent was used and to be blunt I found the voicework for Kikyo in this dub to be a bit of a so-so mixed bag. Kikyo's voice in this dub was okay but while the clip I am using is from a rather somber scene her performance in the Animax dub doesn't have the same kind of spirit as Willow's handiwork in the Viz dub. But to be fair I have heard a lot worst voice acting performances before and by its own merits her Animax dub voice is okay from what I've heard. Overall like I said before while Kikyo's Animax dub voice is okay I am clearly going with Willow Johnson this time around.

Andrea's take is fitting for a dead chick, but Willow fits the character better.

I like Andrea Kwan here. She makes Kikyou sound mature. Willow's voice has something that just doesn't click with me.

Willow Johnson is the perfect Kikyou. Unique and very sorrowful and mature at all times, which is the essence of Kikyou. I feel Andrea is lacking that aura about her voice as well as the right tone.

Willow Johnson IMO. Kwan isn't that bad here, but a bit forced.

Willow Johnson sounded much more natural. The other person didn't suck though. However, I like the Animax Inuyahsa better than the Animax Kikyo.
