EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Sengoku Basara VC section we have whom is basically the "Ms. Fanservice" of the franchise whom is a kunoichi whom can be deadly in battle but is lets just say a bit of a lovesick romantic to her lord is this blond ninja... KASUGA! In the original Sengoku Basara game A.K.A Devil Kings, Kasuga went by the name of Venus whom coincidentally was voiced by Venus Terzo in that game. I will start this off by saying on how Venus was a natural casting choice for this role. I admit I was a bit surprised at Venus' voice for the role at first as she sounds a little different from what I would expect but its certainly not bad though in fact I would say that it works for the role just fine. Oh yes and as for Venus' performance for this role I do think that it came out naturally especially during Kasuga's more serious moments (but Venus can certainly do Kasuga's lighter moments as well such as Kasuga's introductory scene with her beloved lord.) This performance may not be one of Venus' best but it certainly works for the role and is a fine example of her work and the voice acting in that game.
Now for the 3rd Sengokua Basara Game and the anime series' based on the games Stephanie Sheh takes over the role. While this is by no means the only time Stephanie has ever voiced a "Ms. Fanservice" role her voice for this role does make an interesting change of pace. Now don't get me wrong I am aware on how Stephanie does have a range outside of her known cutesy high voices but I actually couldn't tell that it was her at first. While its certainly not impossible to tell the difference between Stephanie's voice and Venus' as but Stephanie's Kasuga voice sounds like Venus' only slightly (and I repeat slightly) higher. Anyways Stephanie's performance also suits Kasuga's persona rather well too. While its not one of Stephanie's best performances it is a good example of how she is capable of vocal range. Overall both of these performances are good but I am going with Venus Terzo a little more as sounded a little more natural from the start.
