Because Kotono can act and sound naturally young. Sheh sounds force. I know she gets praised for making Usagi sound young as opposed to Hawkes and Ballatyne making her sound too old for 14. But Sheh doesn’t sound natural to me she sounds like an adult woman doing a forced young teenage anime girl voice. Kotono and Tracey Moore actually sound naturally youthful despite being older. Hawkes didn’t seem to be bothered, raising her pitch a bit but sounding closer to an upperclassman in high school than a second year middle school student. And Ballatyne uhh was more suited playing older sophisticated versions of the character than whatever it is she was doing.
YES sounds way to forced.

There's really not much to expect with her as Chibi Chibi anyway since she barely spoke actual words for most of it.

Had Crystal got to Stars then there would be something to look forward to but well, considering there hasn't been any actual news on Dream yet..........
True, but Chibi Chibi is my most favorite SM character and I will be very upset if Sheh doesn't give her justice.
 
Pleasantly surprised we already got Sailor Tin Nyanko. Thought we'd have to wait until Part 2 since she doesn't show up until then. Now all that leaves is Princess Kakyu...

Faye Mata did an incredible job as Yukako in JoJo, so I'm really excited she's joining Sailor Moon. Not familiar with the other 3 but hopefully they'll be good. A bit disappointed Megan Hollingshead didn't get one of these roles, but I guess there's still Princess Kakyu...

I feel like I need to hear them as the Three Lights before I can I fully judge. But I'm liking them as the Starlights. Wish Fighter's attack call had a bit more "oomph" put into it though.
I did like their entrance speech at the very least! Attack calls are kind meh, but that’s almost a staple with this dub. Very interested in hearing all the villains!

They sound fine. My only worry is if they’re going to keep their botched translation of “Am I not good enough?” or leave it true to the Japanese script

Well, they certainly sound more feminine as the Sailor Star Lights than in the Japanese version, where even in their Star Light forms did they still sound boyish.

The voices themselves are okay, the weakness in their performance lies in how they were directed.

Also, HOLY SNAP, they got KATIE LEIGH for this show?!!! And as a VILLAIN?!!! That's unbelievably incredible!! :megaoh::megaoh::megaoh:

I know! I never thought I'd hear a Hollywood actress from the TV shows I like (who did Honker from Darkwing, Miss Chatterbox in Mr. Men Show and Sunni from Gummi Bears) as Sailor Iron Mouse. Maybe Iron Mouse will use her Sunni/Chatterbox like voice when dubbing

Faye Mata did Konosuba as Aqua, and Yukako in Jojo's Bizzare Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable
Corina Boettger was in Love Live, as well as a twitch streamer. Here's one example: Twitch
Andi Rich...I got nothing on. LOL
Yeah they tagged all the new VAs on Twitter except Andi Rich, suggesting she’s probably an alias. Just a theory: maybe she’s Andrea Baker (Katie Leigh’s Totally Spies costar).

Katie Leigh’s casting is definitely interesting. I think the only other anime she’s ever done is Viewtiful Joe (also some Japanese video games like Star Ocean). But she’s worked in western animation since the 80s though (including G1 MLP). Makes me wonder about the union status of this season if she’s working on it openly with no alias.

It’s a shame they never got Sherry Lynn for any character in the series. I would’ve actually cast her as Chibiusa over Sandy Fox, and she would’ve also done great as Black Lady. There’s other characters she would’ve worked well as too. Rebecca Forstadt would’ve been great as well. I know some sources say she voiced some minor roles in R, but she told me on FB a while back that she hasn’t worked on Sailor Moon.
