Voice Compare » Sailor Moon » Sailor Mini-Moon / Rini

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Sailor Mini-Moon / Rini with sound clips and images.
Rini is the future daughter of Serena (Sailor Moon) and Darien (Tuxedo Mask). She's very naughty and acts very child-like. Rini's best friend is Pegasus, a mystical creature who appears before her in her dreams. Rini can also transform into Sailor Mini-Moon, and helps Sailor Moon in combat. She's very loyal to Serena, Darien, and the rest of the Scouts. Though they sometimes get on her nerves.

Rini was voiced, in the English version, by Tracey Hoyt for the Sailor Moon R season (the second one), including the "Lost Episodes", and the Sailor Moon R: Promise of the Lost Rose movie. She reprised the role for the Sailor Moon S and the Sailor Moon SuperS movies.

However, Tracey was getting involved in more mainstream cartoon work, and left the role shortly before the production of Season 3 (Sailor Moon S). Her replacement was Canadian TV and Radio personality, Stephanie Beard, AKA Sugar Baybee. Stephanie voiced the role in the Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon SuperS seasons before production of the franchise came to an end.

Neither was bad, but I definitely prefer Stephanie Beard over Tracey Hoyt. Tracey I think sounded a bit less natural and a little too bratty. Stephanie sounded almost perfect. Her voice sounded so cute, and she could convey all kinds of emotions perfectly. Though to be fair, she did play Rini in more important episodes for the character.

Sandy fits so well, she got a cutesy yet bratty voice for this character

After hearing her debut episode in Viz's R dub, I'm going with Sandy Fox. She can nail the bratty aspect like Tracey did, but better since she still manages to sound cute like Stephanie Beard. She's even going to be playing Wicked/Black Lady, unlike the old dub voices.

I still love Stephanie Beard regardless however. Definitely the best out of the old dub voice, and I was originally hoping for her to reprise the part for Viz.

I love Stephanie's more because she sounds more genuine and SO CUTE. Tracey's was good but Stephanie would be my first choice :3

Hmm...I like both and can't really choose between the two so I call it a tie.

I'm going to give this role to Stephanie. Its her most iconic role and she did fit the cute-bubble gum look to ChibiUsa sounding exactly like a 4-year old would though maybe a bit too cartoony but... I'm sure the japanese would squeal at the sound of her naturally moe voice. At most Stephanie did deliver a lot better than Tracey even with the same level of inexperience.

Tracey to me sounded very underpreformed and came off way too bland and snarky with that nasally sound she had in everything she said. I remember that famous scene where Chibiusa/Rini jumps out from Darien's apartment and yells "Wooooooaah" in the lamest way ever...

It was hard but I choose Tracy. She does a wonderful job though

Stephanie sounds more like a child Rini's age than Tracey. Tracey still did a wonderful job though.

Ms. Beard's my choice. Wow. She fits Chibiusa very well and her acting is most favorable for the role. Complements.

Tracey's voice is agony for me and my mum to listen to. She is a brilliant voice actress, but it is just so hard for me to listen to. Her scream is like nails on a chalkboard. It made her seem too bratty too. Stephanie was ok, it made Rini far more tolerable for me to listen to, but it was a little too 'sweet' and 'cute' like a little chipmunk in my opinion. Though I do prefer her ten times more than Tracey!

Tracey Hoyt couldn't act. Stephanie Beard was perfect.

@Galactic_Cyrus Agreed. Beard was perhaps the best VA of the Cloverway dub. Not to mention she actually makes Rini sound like a child.

I think Stephanie's tone definitely fits the appearance and personality of Rini's character better, but Tracey Hoyt has more natural inflection. To be honest, I prefer the original Japanese, but given the choice between Steph and Tracey...I think I'd probably still pick Steph.

I really prefer Tracey. I just couldn't get used to Stephanie's voice at all. Tracey strikes me as more naturally sounding as if she was related to Terrie Hawkes as Sailor Moon. Like the two characters really are related. (They are, but I don't know how to explain other then Tracey is a perfect fit for Rini.) IMO, they couldn't have picked better. I'm over dubbed now and into subbed, but as I grew up with the dub, I have always wanted to voice my opinion on who is better.

@Mini Wolfsbane I disagree completely. Tracey had NO emotion at and just made her sound even more spoiled and selfish than she actually was.

Stephanie wins. She was perfect. It's interesting to note that the voice used for this character is essentially her natural voice. When she hosted YTV one of the most frequently-asked questions was if that was her real voice.
