EDITOR'S OPINION

Alright for the 6th VC for .hack's VC section here this is for another known example of a catgirl in Video Game history... TABBY! First of all in the anime series ".hack//Roots" she is voiced by Maryke Hendrikse and I must say that she was a fine choice for the role. Maryke's voice and performance definitely displays cuteness for sure and Maryke's personality also definitely reflects Tabby's bubbly and energetic personality quite well. (But Maryke's performance also works well with Tabby's sadder moments as well.) To make a long story short its another great example of Maryke's handiwork and the voice acting in the show's English dub.

Tabby did appear in the G.U Trilogy however it wasn't until the 3rd game in the Trilogy in which Stephanie Sheh takes over the role and I must say she was quite a suitable alternative for the role. While this is by no means the first time that Stephanie has ever voiced a cutesy-voiced, sweet-natured curvy Ms. Fanservice this does feel like a somewhat interesting change of pace for Stephanie as well. How so you ask? Well despite on how Tabby does get her fair share of teary dramatic moments she also gets to be the cheerful energetic cat girl she is well known for and Stephanie's overall performance reflects that very well. Much alike Maryke, Stephanie's voice for Tabby is also very cutesy (and yes Stephanie's Tabby voice is a bit squeakier but it still doesn't feel overdone nevertheless). Overall this one shall be a tie as both of these ladies were great choices for this role.

Any particular reason this VC became unlisted?

@rosebr10 Stephanie Sheh's not credited in the game so there's doubt that it's actually her doing the voice. The game's a union production (Kari Wahlgren, Steve Blum, and Crispin Freeman) with a full credited cast list, so those kinds of issues aren't preventing her from being in the game. Basically there's margin for error so I hid it until I could determine if the credit's legit.

Everything happens for a reason. Typically a VC is only ever hidden if it turns out there was an error of some sort, and this is almost always temporary.

*Sees a "Rachel Hirschfeld" and Tabby warranting a credit in Japanese version along with other recurring characters who are excluded in the English version credits and are not otherwise represented via miscellaneous voices* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9N1yRvZw9aI#t=68m8s

Honestly with this comparison I cant really tell the difference with the 2 voices Maryke sounds louder but thats hardly worth noting.
