Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Tabby with sound clips and images.
EDITOR'S OPINIONAlright 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.
