Fujiko Mine

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Fujiko Mine with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Lupin the 3rd

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, Lady Liberty 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.

Giving this one to Michelle. She's easily my second favorite Fujiko (behind Miyuki Sawashiro) with Meredith MeCoy, Christina Vee and Dorothy Fahn right behind her!

Michelle Ruff is pretty much the definitive Fujiko and the one I was most accustomed to.

I'll admit I also enjoy Cristina Vee, Dorothy Elias-Fahn, Edie Mirman and Toni Barry too, they do quite well and give good performances. In Barry's case it's one of the better Manga UK performances.

Meredith McCoy's also good, the UVA is mediocre and Michele Seidman sounds too high and actually rather dumb.

I got into the franchise through the Woman Called Fujiko Mine, so Michelle Ruff will always and forever be Fujiko to me.

But I think my second favorite is Toni Barry. She sounds sexy without overdoing it, and has a certain classic quality to her performance that fits the franchise, IMO. She's also one of the most memorable aside from Michelle.

I also like Edie Mirman and Dorothy Fahn's takes.

My vote definitely goes to Michelle. She kiiiiind of overdoes it at times with the "sexy" voice, but overall does a really good job. Was super awesome for Funimation to get her back in the Fujiko Mine series!

At first I didn't like Meredith's voice, having only heard her in Farewell to Nostradamus, but then I saw Voyage to Danger and it completely changed my mind of her. The only reason I didn't vote for her was because her voice get a tad masculine at times (which was why I was turned off at first).

It was really interesting to hear Dorothy Fahn as Fujiko. She did a really good job and was hilarious doing the news commentary during the final battle in Castle of Cagliostro.

Edie Mirman was pretty good. Nothing too outstanding but did a good job overall.

Cristina Vee is really good as Fujiko. She sounds damn-near identical to Michelle, but maybe a little bit more serious, and less over-the-top? It works, and the voice change is hardly noticeable.

I still enjoy all the voices here for different reasons, except Michele Seidman.
said at 9:50 AM on Mon May 9 2016
Michelle Ruff, her illustrious tone of voice mixed with this over the top attitude probably makes her the more definitive voice for the character.

Cristina Valanezuela is a good sound-a-like, but it lacks that up beat over exaggeration.

Bonus: I don't care what others think, I think either Jennifer Hale or Grey Griffin would an make excellent Fujiko. Grey in particular with her Catwoman voice.

@Troodon2 What AntiSabat (& others) meant isnt that Jen or Grey wouldn't be *awesome* in this role (on the contrary, they have similar-caliber & voiced actresses in the Japanese versions)...

..what he meant was that they simply wouldn't be able to *afford* those guys, sad as that is.

I mean, at one point, the Japanese cast of Lupin III was *so* A-list that they *couldnt* afford to continue bringing them back, & had to replace them, lol.

@Troodon2 The day anime becomes super mainstream to the level of western cartoons, to where it's super profitable, is the only way you'll get VA's like Jennifer Hale & Grey Delisle Griffin in Lupin the Third.

@Troodon2 Hey, hey, I fully support your ideas of Grey and Jennifer as Fujiko.

I also think Saffron Henderson and Kelly Sheridan would work in the role.

Seidman's was the most off, while UVA was kind of flat but that could also be chalked up to the general spotty voice direction that Frontier-produced dubs had. The UVA is currently believed to be Patricia Kobayashi, an actress associated with Frontier in the late '70s-early '80s, and who played Odile in their dub of Swan Lake. I'm not sure myself, but I can see where the similarity would be heard.

@LichaRose Patricia Kobayashi may have been a pseudonym used the late actress Patricia Elliott. Based on research by squigglydigg about Frontier's missing dub of an anime named "Golden Bat" (dubbed as "Phantaman", though pronounce it in the series as "Phantoma").

When looking up, I figured the name was just the same. Then I noticed one of her first roles was in the film "The Green Film", which just so happened to feature Frontier Enterprises owner (and Goemon's voice) William Ross, as well as early Frontier voice actors Burr Middleton and Robert Dunham. So maybe they are one and the same.

If I were to have Ocean Studios dub this I'd give it to either Saffron Henderson or Lisa Ann Beley. But that's just me from listening to their roles.

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

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.
said at 3:46 PM on Mon Feb 16 2015
@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.

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.

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.
said at 8:28 AM on Tue Oct 1 2013
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.
