EDITOR'S OPINIONAlright folks here is this little lady from Ranma 1/2 in which she is the most famous and infamous little lady from that series in which to say that she has a "divisive" impact on the fanbase would be an understatement. In the North American released English dub of the series she is voiced by Myriam Sirois in which Akane is her most known performance (well granted its one of her only VA performances but still). Say what you will about Akane herself but Myriam's performance was definitely not bad at all. Yes Myriam's Akane voice is a bit more moderate (she only gets considerably higher when Akane gets angry which to be fair is by no means rare) but her voice still works for the role nevertheless. And Myriam does indeed deliver a spirited performance that can suit on how riled up Akane can be but can do a nicer a bit more subdued performance when she gets nicer (in which I will note is not rare). Overall I admit not one of my favorite performances in the Viz dub but its a fine example of the voice work in that dub nevertheless.
In the HK-made Animax English dub aired on the SE Asia TV Market she is voiced by Claudia Thomas whom I was actually rather impressed with. For starters I noticed on how Claudia's Akane voice is a bit higher and a bit cuter but not too much of these so basically her voice is rather fitting for the role. And Claudia's performance is also rather fitting for Akane's persona as well namely for Akane's nicer side and her not-so nicer side as well. To be honest I think its one of the better performances in that dub so overall while I generally prefer the Viz dub in these VCs but I am actually not so sure this time...
