Dorothy Melendrez, alias Annie Pastrano, alias Dorothy Elias-Fahn, alias Anna Grinta, alias Midge Mayes, alias Jacky Morris = The voice actor for Meryl Strife.
But you know what I just found out?
She's also the voice for Naru Narusegawa in Love Hina, Kaoru Kamiya in RuroKen, Chiharu Mihara in CCS, Cyborg 003 in Cyborg 009 (XD), Nova in MKR and a ton of different voices in Kikaider.
Basically, SHE IS SO COOL.
She's like my favorite character in every single anime show ever. I mean. Come on. Meryl. Kaoru. Naru.
IT'S INSANITY, I TELL YOU.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This lady is FABULOUS.
When I grow up, I want to be like Dorothy Melendrez, alias Annie Pastrano, alias Dorothy Elias-Fahn, alias Anna Grinta, alias Midge Mayes, alias Jacky Morris.
All those alias'!!!
If you don't understand her extreme awesomeness yet, check this out.
That is WILD.
And a couple nights ago I was watching Adult Swim...
I heard her voice and I KNEW it was her. On Scryed! She's THE SAME AS MERYL! Kiryu Mimori. It's WILD.
I'm kinda goin' crazy here, if you hadn't noticed.
I think perhaps tomorrow, after I watch the rest of the DVDs I got from the library today, I'll make some sort of colorbar to glorify the characters of Dorothy Melendrez.
Oh, and if you're wondering what spurted this madness, I was watching the bloopers on the first Mao-Chan DVD and I heard her voice, and I was like, WTF mate?
I am exploding in adoration for this lady.
