EDITOR'S OPINION

Hey folks well for my 2nd to last VC for the 2000's let alone 2009 here we shall finish off doing VC's for the Powerpuff Girls themselves and namely for the leader of the PPG namely Blossom!

In the original series she is voiced by Cathy Cavadini. In the original series Blossom had a cutesy fairly high but more mature toned-voice from Cathy that did work for the role.

In the English dub of the PPGZ anime series Blossom was voiced by Ocean Group VA Nicole Bouma and much like how the voice work in the dub can be Nicole's voice work for Blossom was very much in spirit with Cathy's work. And much like Cathy's work Nicole's work does also work for the role and is by all means above average as well.

So overall I am pretty much calling for a Tie here as both performances did work for Blossom rather well.

(Note: Oddly enough Grey Deslisle gets to take over the role of Blossom in CN Punch Time Explosion and while plenty of folks hated the fact that Cathy did not reprise the role here I actually didn't think that Grey was all that bad here. I mean sure Grey's voice for the role does seem a bit older than what the original series' Blossom was but her voice and performance is a decent fit for Blossom's persona. While its not quite as good as Cathy's work Grey's work for the role wasn't that bad.)

1. Cathy Cavidini: She had the ability to be both cute and tough, while also being consistently passionate and energetic.

2. Nicole Bouma: She sounds pretty good, if a little higher pitched than Cathy and slightly less energetic.

3. Amanda Leighton: She's okay, but sounds a bit too cute in comparison to the former two, and not as tough when needed.

4. Jennifer Fried: Too high pitched, but surprisingly, does sound like a leader in some way. With better direction, she may have been able to pull it off, though.

5. Tara Strong: She sounds too high pitched and cute for a leader of a group like Blossom. Not a bad voice, but the wrong character for it.

6. Grey DeLisle: I'm sorry, but I think she sounds way too old to be a girl: maybe if this were Blossom as a Powerpuff Woman down the line, then I could actually see this working, but a girl? No way. More than just that, though, her delivery is subpar as well.

@WrightWay Grey's performance here honestly sounds like she's phoning it in.

Tara and Jennifer were too high pitched imo.
Grey sounded too old

Cathy, Nicole and Amanda all sound similar.
Grey pretty much used Emily Elizabeth's voice, which surprisingly works.
Tara sounds too much like her Bubbles voice, but I give her props for trying to emulate Cathy.
Jennifer is too high pitched.

Cathy Cavadini... She is the only one who sounds unique as Blossom. Though everyone else performs well, they all sound so... Generic :|

Either trying to be high and "cutesy" or simply tough or even too... as weak as this sounds, stereo-typically "anime-ish".

Cavadini was the only one able to be BOTH cutesy and tough in terms of performance and vocal timbre (Though if Blossom was ever to be shown as an adult, Grey DeLisle MUST be cast using that voice!).

I'm probably being unfair here but Cavadini set the bar WAY too high as Blossom XD

And the conclusion is Tara Strong at some point were all three of the girls, I like her Bubbles and Buttercup but as Blossom eh... not so much

Jennifer was too shrill too

I actually kinda like Grey's version although Cathy is the main actress, looking at it again Nicole would be third everyone else were just too kawaii desu in a bad way

I think the Original Cathy Cavadini easily gets this one , not just because of being the original and great in her own right , its just that i just feel that out of all of these talented ladies hers actually sounds like the ''Center'' between The super Cute Bubbles and the Super Tough Buttercup. Cathy as Blossom provides her girlyness along with her much needed down to earth character to be the head of the power puff girls .

I just dont hear that from the others , since either they sound way too old like Grey or almost as Cute as Bubbles (Amanda)

Amanda's not horrible, but I think she sounds too cutesy, and even sweeter than Kristen as Bubbles, and doesn't sound too much like a leader either. Actually, I would probably have Amanda and Kristen switch roles.
Nicole sounded as cool and heroic as Cathy, but she lacked a certain energy that she had, where you could tell she's a leader just by listening to the way she spoke.
Grey sounded too forced, but would've probably sounded good under better direction.

1st. Cathy Cavadini

2nd. Nicole Bouma

3rd. Grey DeLisle (While I don't think she's that bad as Blossom, she's kind of miscast, IMO.)

Cathy Cavadini WAS Blossom. It's a shame that of the three main VA's in PPG she's the one with the least amount of roles and recognition. I think she was the perfect voice for Blossom striking a perfect balance of cute, young yet intelligent and relatively mature for her age.

Nicole Bouma works well for the Z version of the character, though I can't help but think of Nena Trinity when hearing her take....and I despise that character. Still she did relatively well.

Grey DeLisle-Griffin. Grey I love you but this isn't one of your better roles. She sounds way too old and mature for this little girl superhero.

Cathy has my voice.

Cathy was a perfect fit, but Nicole definitely did her justice, and Grey...that's a miscast if you ask me.

1. Cathy Cavadini: Her performance as Blossom was top notch. She hits the intelligence and brings out the cuteness.
2. Nicole Bouma: She sounds very much like Cavadini but she also puts her own spin on it.
3. Grey DeLisle-Griffin: I feel Griffin is a miscast here, she'd be better as a teenage Blossom.

I like both Cathy Cavadini and Nicole Bourna equally, but maybe slightly Nicole Bourna. While Grey Delisle is a miscast.

@gifford598 Agreed Cathy Cavadini is the clear winner for Blossom. She gives Blossom a bossy, smart, and cutesy, voice. That would fit Blossom's persona.

It's too bad that Cathy Cavadini wasn't available to reprise her role as Blossom in CN Punch Time Explosion.

Cathy played this part to perfection. Sounds cute, smart, bossy, determined, and like a leader all at once. Exactly how Blossom needs to sound like.

Nicole's performance is perfect for the Blossom she's playing. The voice sounds just like Cathy's except higher and a bit flakier. However, I hear some of her Nena Trinity in there a bit too often.

Grey Delisle was an extreme miscast. Too deep and shrill sounding.

My ranking for Blossom
1. Cathy Cavadini - She captures Blossom's smart and cutesy persona. Her work as Blossom is one of the best performances in the show.
2. Nicole Bouma - Sounds exactly like Cathy's Blossom only more older sounding. Nicole's handiwork as Blossom is good too
3. Grey DeLisle - As much as I love her Daphne Blake voice and Sam Manson, she seems off here.

@MatthewC17 Agreed 100%. It astounds me that no one has voted for Nicole, yet 4 have voted for Grey. Must be from a biased fanbase.

As a devoted fan of the original series, my vote will always be for Cathy Cavadini, the rest of these actresses I don't care for. Out of the 3 Powerpuff Girls, I find her voice the most unique, because I RARELY hear her Blossom voice in other material as opposed to the other two. Her voice is very easy on the ears and adorable to listen too.

#1 Cathy Cavadini
The original cast was perfect, and Cathy's role as Blossom lives up to the high standards the series set forth in its 1998 roots. Her voice commands leadership yet still retains a youthful naivete and cuteness to match! The emotion and liveliness she put in her performance easily stand out in the show.

#2 Nicole Bouma
She sounds quite a lot like Cathy's, but gentler and more soft-spoken. Blossom's design in that show is very lovely indeed and Nicole's voice does fit that better, but IMO it did take a bit too much freedom from the original. In the end, a little was lost.

#3 Grey DeLisle
A decent replacement, but still, I think Cathy could've reprised the role given the chance, and even if she just wasn't available at all for some reason I do think Grey could do much better.

Grey could've sounded alright. I have no idea why she used that voice. It's like she wasn't even trying to match Cathy.

Catherine Cavadini without a doubt. Nicole Bouma sounded a little too cute and girly for the role. Cavadini sounded like the leader she's supposed to be.
