EDITOR'S OPINION

Alright 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...

Claudia doesn't fit Akane in the slightest, in fact it sounds more like a voice to be used for Shampoo!

To elaborate further, I thought Myriam sounded perfect as Akane, sounding a bit like a smart-ass, but also tough and naive at the same time. Claudia sounded far too sweet.

Myriam really rocked this role. Myriam gave me this impression. In the beginning she sounded good, but not impressive. However, I can just imagine her in the booth and getting attached to the show's charm and her character and when it came to the moments where she had to show here emotional range with the character she did a darn good job. She really, really grew into the role and really understood the character as if she were second nature over the course of the series.

So yeah, Myriam was awesome, no questions asked.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Excuse that second sentence, it had no place there. Typing in these small boxes causes me to forget stuff I intended to get rid of.

Myriam captures the tomboy character best, and can genuinely deliver sweetness, sincerity, and rage. Claudia sounds vanilla and doesn't seem to show any intelligence behind the casting in regards to what the voice evokes.

Claudia is a HUGE miscast. Myriam portrays the character's spunky tomboyishness better.

Claudia would have been cuter voicing Shampoo maybe, but not Akane. Her voice is much too high and like becky said way too girly.

Myriam just had that natural presence in Akane's voice. When she was nice she really did sound sweet and when she was mad she had that perfect cranky bitch voice. LoL

Myriam is more in character. Akane is SUPPOSE TO BE a tomboy and Myriam portrays that PERFECTLY!
Claudia, sadly, does not. She sounds to girly and weak for the role.

Myriam sounded much more natural. Claudia wasn't too bad with her delivery. It's just her voice that was a little meh. But Myriam is probably one of, if not my ultimate favorite Ranma VAs!
