Rhyme is the least-voiced of TWEWY's cast, so Kate Higgins mainly got the role because she was already voicing Yashiro. But I think this is one convenience cast that actually works for the best - on paper she's actually a great choice. Kate is great at playing upbeat characters and while Rhyme may be androgynous, her natural voice is girlish enough to sell things believably. I actually wish she got to be Rhyme's fulltime VA, but since she got recast in both languages I guess that was never what SE wanted. Alas.
Ashley I think sounds a little close to Shiki (Heather Hogan). I think that's fine in itself and she gets the job done, but on a personal level they ultimately have different personalities and I think it's important to differentiate that. She does make Rhyme sound appropriately sweet, I just think Kate's acting sells things a bit more as a character here and that's probably testament to how good an actor she is.
