Since pretty much every character has had at least 2 voice actors between the Optimum dub and the Viz dub some even 3 or 4 might as well rank them

Usagi/Serena
1.Tracey Moore
2. Terri Hawkes
3. Stephanie Sheh (from a performance stand point I prefer Hawkes but Sheh was more in character to Usagi)
4. Linda Ballatyne

Ami/Amy
1.Karen Bernstein
2.Kate Higgins
3.Liza Balkin

Rei/Raye
1. Katie Griffin
2. Christina Vee
3. Emilie Barlow (made Raye sound like an airhead)

*I like both Amanda and Susan Roman pretty equally

Mina(ko)
1.Emilie Barlow
2. Cheramie Leigh and Stephanie Morgenstern are honestly tied. I think Morgenstern gave a better performance but she sounded a bit too old for a 14-year old even taking into consideration Mina was suppose to be the cool big sis type (at least in the early Dic type) where Leigh sounded age appropriate.

Mamoru/Darien
1. Tie: Toby Proctor/Vince Corazza (they sound a lot alike I think Proctor just benefitted from somewhat better voice direction)
2. Rino Romano
3. Robbie Daymond (literally sounds like every modern anime dub dude tbqh)

Chibi Usa/Rini
1. Stephanie Beard
2. Tracey Hoyt
3. Sandy Fox

Queen Beryl
1.Cindy Robinson
2. Naz edwards
3. Jill Frappier (even if it was for a brief clip it still counts it was still awful)

Sailor Pluto
1. Veronica Taylor
2. Susan Aceron
3. Sabrina Grdevich

Sailor Uranus
1. Sarah Lafleur (Cwi era)
2. Erica Mendez
2. Sarah Lafleur (S and SuperS movie dub because the voice direction for her was hilaribad)

Sailor Neptune
1. Barbara Radecki
2 Lauren Landa

Hotaru
1. Jennifer Gould
2.Christine Marie Cabanos

Queen Serenity
1. Wendy Lyon
2. Wendee Lee
3. Barbara Radecki (not sure if the fact that both Serena's moms were voiced by the same lady was some attempt at being artistic or what but it was distracting more than anything)


Catzy
1. Alice Poon
2.Claudia Lenz
3. Mary Long

Memento, I respect everyone's opinions, and I think you're one of the best content creators in this board.
But it seems to me that you're using your list as a way to bash the Viz dub instead of putting up an honest ranking.
Putting the random Drops announcer who was doing nothing close to "voice acting" above Sheh and putting Kate (who is at the very least doing a professional job as Ami) below Liza, who sounded like she was doing a half-assed fandub most of the time, is a little too much.

My ranking is entirely honest. I'm just trying to acknowledge and honor every English voice actor, no matter how briefly they inhabited their role. It's not my fault if I genuinely find Stephanie to be awful as Usagi, even if I do think she's improved with time, is better in Crystal, and some of the issues I have with her can probably be chalked up to bad directing. Even though Liza was a bit wooden, I've said before I don't think she was that bad. On the other hand, I find Kate to be utterly bland. Her voice doesn't fit Ami imo. Elsewhere, yeah, I prefer the old dub cast overall, but that doesn't mean I don't like some of the Viz actors, and I don't see you accusing those who ranked all the Viz actors above the old dub actors of using their lists as a way to bash the old dub.

Well, then I apologize to you.
And only one person ranked all the Viz actors over the old dub ones, but I didn't get the same impression I got while reading your ranking. Anyway, if it's honest, sorry for bothering you.
I'm not a huge fan of any of the dubs, so I'm not annoyed because someone criticized Viz. But some CWi era actresses like Ballantyne and Balkan did such a bad job IMO, I have a hard time believing there are people who really think they are better than their Viz counterparts. But at the end of the day, opinions are opinions.

Linda's voice was too deep/mature-sounding for Serena, but she kept her voice mostly consistent and gave a solid performance, especially during dramatic moments. Stephanie's pitch changes wildly, especially when she's shrieking out attack and transformation calls, and I find her general acting to be pretty flat. (From the few clips I've seen of her acting in other shows, I feel this may be due to bad directing, so I don't want to unfairly criticize her acting skills.) Liza's voice wasn't too different from Karen's, and so I felt it fit Amy pretty well; it's just that her performance tended to be stiff and lacked the charm that Karen's had. Kate gives a performance that's not as wooden, but it just sounds very generic to me. It doesn't really fit Ami for me, it doesn't stand out from the other voices in the Viz dub, especially Luna's and Rei's, and that's why I ranked her last. It's really not so incredulous that someone would prefer Linda and Liza to Stephanie and Kate.

Anyway, let's move on. :)
