  • I guess she did a good job on Sailor Moon.

    9.0
    Warning: short review. Okay I haven't seen much of her talent except for on YouTube. she's done a good job as that girl, Usagi, and It made me want to actually watch that anime. She does a very good job for a fill-in, I mean most people who fill in for seiyuu aren't as good as the original. I gave her a nine out of a ten because I don't know her that much, but if I did (like if I watch more Sailor Moon episodes with her in it) I would be detailed, but since I don't, this will have to do.moreless
