I'll admit that I absolutely did not like her performance as Keldeo and thought that Vic Mignogna's performance as Keldeo was in all ways superior. And apparently, lots of English-speaking Pokemon fans feel the same way judging by consensuses I've seen elsewhere.

Honestly, because it was a lead role, that's her most well-known role. And on that note, I think people got the wrong impression. Myself included.

For one thing, I do like her supporting roles. I think she was best as Sylveon.

Oh, and not to mention that her story about getting into Pokemon and getting to act in it is an amazing fan story.

So then, what do you all think is the best performance by Ms. Nakagawa?

I only really know her from her musical work, which limits me to the "Antenna of the Heart" and "Notch-Eared Pichu" singles (which I liked).

I only know her songs, too. I wasn't really paying attention to the voice acting when I watched the Keldeo movie.

Her songs are good, though. I love Dori Dori.

Yeah, I'm only familiar with DreamDream and Get Fired Up! Spiky-eared Pichu, probably because I main the dub. And I did read her story. It was pretty cool.

Speaking of which, does she have a contract that doesn't allow her voice to be used outside of Japan or something? Because I always wondered why we never got to hear her as Spiky-eared Pichu in the dub despite its species having the same name worldwide.
