Caitlin Glass has without a doubt to most emotion out of the bunch and because of this she has some incredible moments in the dub.

Natasha Malinsky sounds hammy at points but for Odex standards it's still decent.

Karen Neill has a pretty nice voice but that lifeless voice direction immediately killed nay chances of a good performance and she came off as just lifeless and soulless.

Caitlin Glass. She has the best performance and she just fits the character better.

Caitlin and Natasha are tied for me as which is the best voice. They sound the same to me, well Caitlin seems to have a little bit more range of emotions.

Karen, unfortunately, the voice is good, but it sounds like the editors just used her first take for all of her lines. Everything she is says it one level, no range of emotion at all

Caitlin Glass is one of my favorite FUNi's VAs, and it's due to performances like this. Her performances are so full of life, and she never fails to impress during emotional scenes. Her voice fits Vivi perfectly, and is part of why I became so endeared to the character.

Natasha's take is one of the better ones from the Odex dub. A decent second choice.

Karen Neill has a nice tone to her voice, but the voice direction ruined any chances of a good performance. Her performance comes across as awfully flat. At least Natasha put a bit of emotion into her performance.

@1dbad Yeah Karen had a decent voice but her acting not so much...

@HienFan I'm guessing it was just an issue with the voice direction on 4Kids One Piece? I've never had an issue with her in any of her other roles.

Cate I'm going with here.

1. Caitlin Glass: Glass has the most emotion and sounds the most believable. Some of the highlights of her Vivi voice includes her screaming "Kohza!" after he is shot by a member of Baroque Works, and when Vivi tries to stop the fighting among the citizens of Alabasta.
2. Natasha Malinsky: Malinsky isn't exactly a good voice for the character, her voice ranges from decent to mediocre.
3. Karen Neill: Neill is the worst sounding of these three she sounds incredibly bland and sounds like she's bored and just reading off a script.

Caitlin Glass brings the most emotion to the role which is important since Vivi is supposed to be a very emotional character.

Natasha Malinsky is decent all things considered.

Karen Neill sadly rather disappointing, I don't know what happened here, she just sounds bland in the role.

Caitlin Glass definitely wins this one.

That clip of Karen is better than usual I must say, her voice was kinda okay in generally but it's weirdly tomboyish and very monotone

Vivi I've ranked in the past, but now I'm hear to rank again within more detail.
1. Caitlin Glass: She does a phenomenal job as Vivi Nefertari. A believable performance and the most age appropriate. Loved her work in the Alabasta movie.
2. Natasha Malinsky: Odex voices can be something else, but Malinsky gets the job done quite well. The only flaw I see in her performance is a slight accent and lack of emotion.
3. Karen Neill: Atrociously wooden, but the vocal direction and script do not do her justice. She is a decent Vivi but she missed her chance with the emotional breakdowns Vivi has during the Alabasta arc.

My opinion toward these voice actresses that voiced Vivi in One Piece from 4Kids Entertainment (Formerly), Odex Studios, & FUNimation Entertainment:

Rank #1) Caitlin Glass - She has by far the most emotional and flare into Vivi more so than these 2 that tried but didn't do so, she adds alot of personality to what Vivi has even in dramatic scenes. And on top of that, she even knows when to act and deliver like she was putting an passionate effort as she acts like she was in character from here.

Rank #2) Natasha Malinsky - Out of all the three voice actresses this one who acts averagely compared to Caitlin, but at the very least she put up through emotions and personality miles better than what Karen had to put up with and for that she deserves in second.

Rank #3) Karen Neill - Ugh, hearing about her right now, she pretty much had zero effort of putting delivery, tone and performance into this character whatsoever, which it really sucks compared to how she actually did in other anime that 4Kids did and yeah i'm on the boat of anyone that she didn't do any good at this at all.

And yeah my vote still goes to the lovely Caitlin Glass.

If you want a completely ideal clip of Caitlin Glass having emotion, her scene when Crocodile is defeated and she's yelling out for the people to stop fighting is the PERFECT example for her.

@Fortenium also when she screams "Kohza" after he's shot by a member of Baroque Works.

To elaborate on my opinion some, Caitlin Glass was really amazing as this character. Her emotion and personality are hard to beat. You start to really sympathize with Vivi, and to become invested in her struggle. She was perfect.

Natasha sounded a bit hammy and wooden, and her voice was a bit weird, but it got the job done.

Karen Neil was just atrocious as this character. I'd go as far as saying it was among the worst voices in the whole dub. No emotion, no personality, no voice, no effort. As over-the-top as Jason Griffith, David Moo, and Veronica Taylor were, at least they gave... performances. Granted they were bad performances (most likely influenced by very poor direction), but trying and failing is better than not trying at all, and I firmly believe that Karen was doing little more than just reading from a page.

I couldn't agree more. It's funny because I actually really liked Karen Neill as Karai, and as Caroline in Pokemon, but she was beyond atrocious as Vivi. You said it perfectly: no emotion, intonation, or effort put into the performance. It felt like she was just reading her lines off the script verbatim.

Natasha is still a bit too old sounding and wooden in my eyes.

Caitlin was pretty much perfect for this role and delivered one of the strongest performances in the FUNimation dub of One Piece in my eyes. She is the best Vivi to me.

@OldSchoolFTW Karen Neil has a fine voice, but my God was her performance as Vivi the most wrong sounding thing I've ever heard. Almost zero emotion for a part that should be VERY emotional.

Okay, I really liked Karen Neill as Karai, but holy crap did she drop the ball here. I mean I guess its at least tolerable, but it sounds too monotone and stilted, she definitely could have and should have done better.

Natasha Malinsky sounds too old and breathy. On the upside though it does sound a bit more emotional than Karen's performance. Although I'm going to have to say that this performance is worse, since not only can I sort of see Karen's voice fitting the character, but I feel she could've done better.

Caitlin Glass sounds really emotional and dramatic and pretty young too, at first I wasn't entirely sure that the voice fit, but after thinking it over, yeah it really does fit.

I'm going to have to go with Caitlin Glass, with Karen Neil as a distant second and Natasha Malinsky as a distant third.

...sorry Karen.

Natasha and Karen seem to be just reading, but Caitlin really becomes Vivi. she adds the nuances that really sells it.

Caitlin Glass wins. Her voice reallys fits Vivi's character. Karen's was actually pretty good too.

1. Caitlin Glass: She was the best of the three, hands down.
2. Natasha Malinsky: She was alright, although her acting could probably have been better.
3. Karen Neill: The worst of the three. Her acting was almost completely devoid of emotion.

Caitlin is perfect, but i do love Natasha's, I also hated Karen's (4kids) voice, so hollow

1. Caitlin Glass - she does an excellent job for screaming
2. Karen Neill - she would have been good if she had screamed
3. Natasha Malinsky - she sounds too soft for Vivi
said at 9:22 PM on Wed Jun 22 2011
Caitilin Glass is the only good one here. The other two just sound too soft and not emotional enough.
