Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Pi with sound clips and images.
EDITOR'S OPINIONFor the 2nd .hack VC shall go for the first female character of the franchise to have one on this site in which today we shall see a VC on this lovely pink-haired lady... PI! In the .hack games (namely the G.U games) she was voiced by Jessica Strauss in which her performance is good but it did leave me with slight mixed feelings. Well to be more specific her tone can be a little inconsistent sometimes its higher and sometimes its a bit lower (like in this clip). But to be fair that is the only problem I have with Jessica's work as her performance on the other hand is a bit more consistent in quality here as it does work with the role pretty well. Basically Jessica's performance as Pi is a rather above average example of the voice work in the .hack games.
In the English dub of . hack//Roots used Vancouver VA studio Ocean Group to do the voice work (in which this is the first time Bandai has ever used a VA region other than California for a .hack project, though trust me I am not complaining). Anyways in the English dub of Roots, Pi was voiced by Lisa Ann Beley whom was also a pretty good choice for this role as well. How was Lisa a good alternative to Jessica? Well for starters Lisa's tone was a bit more consistent and performance also worked for the role pretty well too, granted Lisa's Pi voice is a bit lighter than Jessica's somewhat lower Pi voice but it still works for the role nevertheless. Overall while neither one of these performances are the best from their respective VA's but they both have done well with the role as I am not entirely sure who to go with here.
