Voice Compare » Lupin the 3rd » Fujiko Mine

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Fujiko Mine with sound clips and images.
Fujiko Mine is the love/lust interest of Arsene Lupin III. Although she cares for Lupin (sometimes), she also has no problem making deals with Zenigata or enemies of Lupin in order to escape capture or gain loot.

Fujiko is very crafty and like Lupin is also a good master of disguise. Fujiko is the perfect example of a femme fatale.

Fujiko Mine was first voiced in an English dub for the JAL version of The Secret of Mamo. This is also known as the Toho or HK version. There are no official credits for this dub so the voice actor is unknown.

Fujiko was voiced by Edie Mirman in the Streamline English dubs. Edie Mirman voiced Fujiko in the original English dub of The Castle of Cagliostro, a new English dub for The Secret of Mamo and 2 episodes of the Part II TV Series. Streamline released these 2 episodes in 2 individuals releases called Tales of the Wolf: Volume 1 and Tales of the Wolf: Volume 2. It was also re-released as Lupin III: Greatest Capers.

AnimEigo's English dub of The Fuma Conspiracy had Fujiko voiced by Michele Seidman. This was later re-released by Discotek Media.

For the MangaUK English dubs of Lupin III: Bye Bye Liberty Crisis (which isn't licensed for Region 1)  and Lupin III: The Secret of Mamo, Fujiko is voiced by Toni Barry.

Manga Entertainment created their own English dub for The Castle of Cagliostro and in this version Fujiko is voiced by Dorothy Fahn.

Geneon Entertainment (previously known as Pioneer Entertainment) created English dubs for the TV Series Part II (79 out of 155 episodes) and a brand new English dub for The Secret of Mamo. In the Geneon dubs Fujiko is voiced by Michelle Ruff. Ruff also reprises Fujiko in Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine.

Funimation Entertainment licensed several Lupin III TV Specials and Movies, and in these English dubs Fujiko is voiced by Meredith McCoy.

My personal favorite voice for Fujiko is Michelle Ruff.

I also really liked Toni Barry's voice which I wasn't expecting.

Meredith McCoy is somewhat inconsistent. In some Lupin dubs she sounds good but in others she could be better.

Dorothy Fahn and Edie Mirman were fine.

Michele Seidman and the Unknown Voice Actor are my least favorite of the bunch.

The ultimate 2D femme fetalle herself! Making every Lupin story sexy!

Most of the performances for Fujiko were fine here, except for Michele and the UVA.
Ruff, McCoy and Barry are all exceptional in this role, I honestly can't decide who to vote for here! xD

Wendee Lee would be absolutely perfect for this role.

Michelle and Dorothy, because they sounded very real and professional

Michelle Ruff was the best. Then Toni Berry and Meridith McCoy sound second. Dorthy Fahn and Eddie Mirman were forgettable, and the UVA and Michelle Seidman were...bleah.

If they get a union role for her, Jennifer Hale would be one pick.

@Troodon2 Still won't be as good as Michelle Ruff and never will be. Besides, Lupin is a BOMB in the US. HOW would it be feasible to make a union dub for a failure of a franchise?

1. Michelle Ruff- Granted she was the one I heard first but I always adored Michelle's work on the role and it is still one of my favorite performances from her.

2. Toni Barry- I was rather pleasantly surprised here as Toni's voice for the role is really good here and is easily the best out of the older dubs.

3- Meredith McCoy- Like its been said Meredith is kind of inconsistent sometimes her work as Fujiko can be really good but sometimes its more pretty good.

4. Dorothy Fahn- Kind of generic and more suits a more "serious" action girl. But to be fair Dorothy's work here does fit Fujiko's depiction in this movie pretty well so I will give her a bit more credit than Edie and the UVA. After all Caligostro did somewhat tone down Fujiko's "sexy femme fatale" persona a bit so I guess I can't fault Dorothy for that.

5 (tie). Edie Mirman & UVA- Like Dorothy their voicework seems a bit generic but their voices for the role were pretty good.

6. Michelle Seidman- Yeah I will agree that this was a miscast, the voice was too high and the performance didn't suit the role all that well at all.

I'm going with Meredith McCoy. Michelle Ruff and Dorothy Fahn are good too.

@WWEFAN12ization Changing My vote to Michelle Ruff.

Wow, I had a really tough time choosing between Michelle, Meredith and Dorothy.

Meredith McCoy- She did a wonderful job in Dead or Alive. But sometimes, her performance was underwhelming in some of Funi's Lupin dubs.

Michelle Ruff- Fujiko is easily one of her best roles. I thought the sexy tone was a little too over-the-top, but she did very well.

Dorothy Fahn- It is interesting to hear her play a character like Fujiko. Despite that Cagliostro was her only chance to voice Fujiko, I thought Dorothy did an exceptional job.

I think I'll be voting for Dorothy, I definitely enjoyed Meredith and Michelle in the role too.

@Fulgore2005 Having watched The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, I'm switching to Michelle Ruff. Though Dorothy Fahn is a close second.

I guess if I had to pick an order, it would be:

1. Meredith McCoy - She had the perfect sexy, intelligent, sultry, sarcastic, feminine voice that's expected from the character.

2. Toni Barry - The voice is very much like Meredith, but perhaps a little more elegant-sounding, and has an interesting, sultry quality to it. It's unique.

3. Michelle Ruff - She had a good, classy, intelligent, colorful voice, though I thought she played up the sex a little too much.

4. Dorothy Elias-Fahn - Her intelligent, sexy, and feminine delivery was nice, but I felt the performance sounded a little too young. I can't hear the voice coming out of Fujiko's mouth in much else other than the Cagliostro movie. It was good for what it's worth though.

4. Robin Levinson/Corinne Orr/whoever the unknown VA is - It's a good voice. The acting was a little wooden, but the voice was incredibly sexy and feminine sounding.

5. Edie Mirman - Ehh.... it was okay. It wasn't too particularly memorable. She sounded intelligent enough, but not really that sexy, and her line delivery was pretty weak. It sounded like she was having fun at least.

6. Michele Seidman - Her voice was the polar opposite of how this character is supposed to sound. She sounded too young, too scratchy, not sexy at all, and frankly, a little dumb if you ask me, almost like a stereotypical California girl. Her acting kinda sucked too. I just didn't hear Fujiko.

After watching all 4 Mamo dubs, I'd move Edie Mirman to number 4, tied with Dorothy Fahn, and the unknown VA to #5. Mirman was actually really good. I thought she had a nice intelligent voice that was sexy, but not too sexy. It was a little awkward in places though.

The unknown VA sounded inconsistent. In some lines, her voice sounded appropriately lower, but in others, it was too soft, almost making the character sound, frankly, a little dumb.

For CAGLIOSTRO, I have to say that I really liked Dorothy Elias-Fahn. She sounds sassy and smarmy, and has a lot of fun with the role. Edie is considerably different in tone, but she sounds fine, too. In truth, though, I am torn over who I like better. They're both fine, but I am more familiar with Dorothy, so I'm giving her my nod.
