EDITOR'S OPINIONAlright folks here is the 3rd VC for Viewtiful Joe and for the first VJ female character to receive a VC I figured it would be for the best for it to be Joe's Main Squeeze... SILVIA! First of all we shall start this off with the game series in which she was voiced by Cristina Pucelli whom was a pretty good choice for the role. Cristina's voice for the role was a nice cute though fairly moderate tone which did work for the role well and her performance did have a pretty good energetic feel for the role. Whether Silvia is being the young woman whom is trying to be patient with her boyfriend's hobbies, being rather eager for some "action" with him, a distressed damsel and more Christina's performance did reflect the role pretty well. I admit its not one of the most memorable performances in the series (though yes I am aware that Silvia gets a bigger role after the 1st game) but its a good example of the voice work in the game series.
In the English dub of the anime done by the late great Pioneer/Geneon Entertainment she was voiced by Philece Sampler took over the role here. While Philece's voice for Silvia is a bit higher and cutesier but Philece was able to make it work pretty well for her performance if I do say so myself. Much like her Video Game series counterpart Philece's performance also reflected on how Silvia is an overall nice gal but has a bit of a hard time trying to be patient with how her boyfriend can be. (While some could understand why but to be fair there are ladies in Video games whom have far worse taste in men but that is a different story.) Anyways while I know that the voicing acting in the English dub of the anime is often deemed to be vastly inferior to the voice work in the games and while I admit there were times in which I could understand why believe it or not this is not one of them. In fact I found Philece Sampler's work for the role to be one of the better performances in that dub. Overall both of these performances are good but I am actually going to go with Philece Sampler a bit more here.
