Funny, I saw the movie first with the FOX dub, and while I liked it then, I didn't find Dakota annoying or grating at all. She DOES underact in some scenes toward the end, but otherwise there's nothing wrong with her performance. Both takes on Satsuki are fine.

They sound similar but Dakota is more grating so the late Lisa gets my vote

Does it look like that the sound clip of Dakota Fanning's voicing of Satsuki has both Satsuki and Mei saying "Please continue to look after us." simultaneously?

 1 Shout Out!
1. Dakota Fanning - Yes I know many people prefer the Streamline dub but Fanning sounds more natural
2. Lisa Michelson - She had some potential but it sounds like Kiki's voice only an octave higher

The votes are obviously tied here. But as I said, I personally think both Lisa and Dakota are fine. Dakota tends to holds back a bit in the more emotionally intense scenes toward the end, but her chemistry with Elle is still believable, and even if Lisa's take was iconic, it's in no way an excuse to dismiss Dakota's work on this film. Is it on par with her performance as Coraline? No. But it's far from abysmal.

Lisa no question! Fox dubbed it better. I just can't get used to the Disney version.

@rephead FOX was the distributor for home video
Streamline dubbed the film and with the help of Troma Films it debuted in theaters in 1993
FOX was never the dubbers

I grew up with the FOX/Streamline version and Lisa's voice just fits Satsuki perfectly. I like Dakota but its hard to really accept her version.

I'm going with Dakota Fanning she sounds so natural
Lisa Michelson sounds too much like her Kiki voice
