World Ends With You World Ends With You


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Rhyme with sound clips and images.
Franchise: World Ends With You

Rhyme is Beat's younger sister, and his partner for the first week of The Game. Whereas Beat is a rough-and-tumble punk, Rhyme has a more positive and peaceful demeanour, in spite of her streetlike origins. Though The Game isn't easy for everyone, Rhyme provides a beam of sunshine that helps keep everyone's spirits alive... Beat's moreso than he realizes at the time.

Rhyme is the least-voiced of TWEWY's cast, so Kate Higgins mainly got the role because she was already voicing Yashiro. But  I think this is one convenience cast that actually works for the best - on paper she's actually a great choice. Kate is great at playing upbeat characters and while Rhyme may be androgynous, her natural voice is girlish enough to sell things believably. I actually wish she got to be Rhyme's fulltime VA, but since she got recast in both languages I guess that was never what SE wanted. Alas.
Ashley I think sounds a little close to Shiki (Heather Hogan). I think that's fine in itself and she gets the job done, but on a personal level they ultimately have different personalities and I think it's important to differentiate that. She does make Rhyme sound appropriately sweet, I just think Kate's acting sells things a bit more as a character here and that's probably testament to how good an actor she is.

Ashley Rose Orr's okay for the most part but since this is Kingdom Hearts we're talking about there really isn't all that much for her to do, same could be said for Kate Higgins but I think she does a far better job in the role.

I didn't even realize that this character also showed up in a Kingdom Hearts game. That being said, I prefer Kate Higgins for this one. Despite the limited material she does a great job.

Kate sounds so cute, reminds me of Alison Leigh Rosenfeld.

Ashley Rose Orr sounds too much like a lot of the female original characters in the series.
