Saffron Henderson didn't voice the character for long but the voice was decent. I'm probably being a bit biased since Mary Elizabeth McGlynn voiced the character MUCH longer and that's the voice I'm used too, but IMO it fits the character's personality and appearance very well.

Saffron sounds more enticing while Mary Elizabeth sounds more commanding.

I'm honestly going to vote Mary for the Kurenai Yuhi because it's the voice i gotten used to alot more and handled this no problem.

I'm actually going with Saffron here. Her voice fit the character's sexy demeanor better. Mary's good, but sounds a bit generic and I've heard this performance from her before.

Mary Elizabeth McGlynn sounds a lot like Lori Alan (The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater).

They both did a good job, but I voted for Saffron Henderson partially because she was more distinctive, but mainly because she had less votes and they were both fine, though is it me or is Mary Elizabeth McGlynn WAY over enunciating the Japanese names in that clip?

@Beaux All the names are Japanese names, and I think it's just you because the rest are lazier at it. She was talking proper is all, particualry because she was being formal.

I'll call this a draw. Poor Saffron had only one line! It's a shame since her voice fits Kurenhai Yuhi's appearance very well (it's unique), even if it is a tad raspy! But Mary was good too since her performance was very well-done!
