Hmmm.....that's funny....she's does a very good job as Faye Valentine on the Cowboy Bebop dub, and this is a dub that is almost universally accepted as being as good as the original (and some say better...). Vanessa on Robotech wasn't that bad either. Her Yuri in the Streamline Dirty Pair was pretty good too, I thought. I can't remember what else she was in that I have at the moment, and don't have time to hunt down the Animerica issue with her interview in it to find out, but from what I understand, she is considered one of the best female VAs out there today?

But I'm not sure she is quite right for Aina. Just doesn't seem to fit Aina's personality to me for some reason. I can see Noin's VA doing her though.

Oh, and personally, I thought Macross Plus was dubbed extremely well.
