Both were good, but Elle seemed more like a natural choice.

As much as I liked Cheryl, I gotta say that Elle just edges her out. It's not often you get to hear a girl voiced by an actress the correct age (which was another reason I really loved ADV's dub of NADIA so much), and Elle had the meatier role to begin with. She cries quite well, too, and if there is a "squealiness" to her role, then it's not a detriment. Cheryl could sound like that, too.

Cheryl's clip sounds like Angelica Pickles if she was 2 years old

Both English dubs of this are excellent for different reasons. As much as fans may detest the casting of the Fanning sisters for MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, I personally think it paid off well, particularly in Elle's case: she has the right little sister flair and obviously has a ball with any scene she's in; in fact, she steals the whole dub. Her crying toward the end is quite powerful, too.

Not to discredit Miss Chase, of course. She did indeed do a fabulous job at the time she dubbed the role, sounding energetic throughout. Although to be honest, I really have a hard time deciding who I like better: both are equally good.

Even though I hate 20th Century Fox this movie had great dubbing.

One of the few things Fox can be proud of besides Avatar, Titanic, Ice Age films, Home Alone, Die Hard, Cast Away Braveheart and Star Wars films. Everything else they make these days = EPIC FAIL!

*Cough* most of their super heroes movies please give the licenses back to Marvel *Cough*

Who do you think has been the best from these Mei Kusakabe voice actors?
