EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Ys Voice Compare section we have a little something for this cute redhead from the 2nd Ys game... LILLIA! We shall begin this with the TurboGrafx CD classic game Ys Book I & II in which Mea Martineau was the one who voiced Lillia here. Mea's voice does have a cute, friendly feel that has a great "Girl Next Door" kind of feel as I can of course say the same thing about her performance as well as it does have a nice youthful friendly feel. So in other words I must say that Mea's work as Lillia is another fine example of the voice work in Ys Book I & II and its a shame that she never really did any voice work after this game.
In the Media Blasters dub of the Ys II anime Julie Maddalena gets to take over the role here. (In which fans have complained that the dub referred her as Lillian instead of Lillia which seemed pretty petty to me I suppose I can understand the complaints about some of the other altered names but still.) Anyways throughout Julie's career as a voice actress she is a tad bit type cast at doing higher toned cute girl voices but at least in my opinion she does them pretty well and this is no exception. Julie was definitely successful in making Lillia sound adorable (but still age appropriate) as while Mea's voice for the role did have its fair share of cuteness but Julie's voice was even more so. Julia's performance for the role was also pretty well done as it also have a nice youthful friendly well that is needless to say very fitting for the role. Overall I am not sure who to go with here as while Julie may sound a bit cuter but both of these ladies did very well for the role here.
