  • Quotes

  • Sango, Wanda and Hitomi are the best is the world... oh, Kelly is the best as well, well, no duh, she is the voice of them.

    Kelly is the best actress that I have heard of yet. She plays all my favourite chicks in anime: Wanda, Hitomi and Sango! If it were up to me to have someone play a girl in an anime, Kelly would be my first pick. Never underestimate the chicks of anime! I also think that she should play more girls in teenage years and young adult years, because it helps adults understand their children more when she plays the voice of a teenager or young adult, plsu if she is going to be playing a girl in one show that is in a couple, like Miroku and Sango or Van and Hitomi, why not have let her play as Jean.moreless
  • One of the best anime\cartoon actresses I've ever seen by far.

    Kelly Sheridan has got to be one of my favourite animated actresses ever! I'm not a big fan of Inyushia or whatever and many of the other shows she stars in, but I have watched them once in a while and she does a great job in those rolls! I do however watch her in Class of the Titans often and I must say she does an awesome job in the role of Theresa! She really gets into the roll of her character and acts like her; she just does such a good job with her acting. That's about it, I just love her acting, and her and Kirby Morrow are an awesome pair together!moreless
