It's interesting to see that Valerie Arem does some voice acting in addition to her work as a voice director. While she's an incredibly talented director, she's pretty solid as an actress. She hasn't done too much notable voice work but the roles she's taken on she's done pretty solid work for. She did a very solid job as Naoto in the Persona 4 spin-offs, conveying the detective's composed, analytical personality and such well. I still prefer the original (and very mysterious) actress but Valerie did a pretty nice job in her place when the OG actress didn't play the role. She also did a pretty nice job as Lotus in 999 and Kikyo in Bravely Default too. Her voice is interesting, being strong and somewhat androgynous too, and her acting is pretty good in the roles she did play so far.

She's a great voice director at her studio (PCB Productions) and I love her directing work in stuff like VLR, Catherine, and Persona 5 and P4 Golden, but her work as an actress is pretty solid and she seems pretty talented overall. I am interested in seeing whether we can hear more voice acting work from her in the future, but nonetheless, she's interesting as a voice actress and she's delivered some interesting work so far.

I hear she voiced one of those Daimons in Sailor Moon S.

Wait... she did the voice of a character like a decade ago and suddenly last few years she's done a few tv shows. What happened?

At least with Valerie confirmed as Naoto for Ultimax and Persona Q we can have an honest-to-god Voice Compare between her and at least Mary McGlynn.

@TaylorJosephB Theoretically, but it'd be conspicuously incomplete to leave out her original VA.
said at 7:13 PM on Tue Jun 24 2014
@NCZ You could just put it as "Unknown Voice Actor", seeing as Nicole Karrer's never been confirmed.

@TaylorJosephB Naoto's VA doesn't want to be identified and we're going to honour that request by not drawing attention to it.

@NCZ Oh, okay. I didn't know that. I'll back off on it, then. Sorry.

Now, all we need is wait until we hear new voices for Ultimax and Persona Q...if it ends up sounding different and it turns out she's another replacement, then I guess the truth will always be shrouded in fog.

@LeDom All things considered, it's leaning more toward the side that Valerie is taking over for Naoto's original VA. That said, you are correct, all we can really do is wait for further clarification or the Ultimax launch.

So let me get this straight.

She had's voicework directly confirmed for her for a decade, has no qualms against using her real name, and successfully reprised a Persona character in the anime.

And people think she is Naoto of all people...why?

@rosebr10 People are just desperate to get a name attached to Naoto, I suppose.

Might as well mention this while I'm on the subject. As for the Nicole Karrer thing, my ears are open to the possibility of it being her, she's probably more likely than the other names I've seen floating around, but there's still room for error so I'm not 100% sold unless someone steps forward and says they voiced Naoto.

@rosebr10 As it turns out, Valerie Arem really is the voice of Naoto... in Ultimax and Persona Q.

No word on if she's been voicing her the whole time yet...
said at 4:27 PM on Tue Jun 24 2014
...Implying the original game voice jumped ship. Arem was Eri in both P4 and P4A. Announcing someone as publicly known as her in a role at this time only means that whatever red tape surrounding Naoto that existed before no longer applies in our present context.

Just like your Smash Bros. policy, Coach, don't jump at any reused quotes. Wait for the release.

The countdown has begun.

@rosebr10 Yeah the impression I got is that she's the voice in these games only. There's nothing saying she did her the whole time. I saw some people ask for clarification, but no response yet.

Just for the record, a tweet I left saying roughly the same thing was the only one retweeted.

Methinks I struck a chord.

@rosebr10 Our hypotheses are looking mighty accurate.

@rosebr10 On the other hand, I interpret this tweet as putting a dent in the Nicole Karrer theory.

@NCZ The world will never who the first actress is sadly. For that the actress wishes to remain private.
