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

I haven't kept up with Viz's translations on Hulu, I only remember that line from VKLL's VHS fansubs, but someone said this:
I feel like that line you mentioned has been debated amongst people before I don't speak Japanese so I can't say personally if it's right or wrong but the "am I not good enough" line was something from the fansub days. It's since been replace with "Can I take his place?" in the official subtitles.
And then this post explaining it? I'm kind of confused.

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.
I'm more disappointed they didn't bring in Rachael Lillis for anything since like Veronica, she still does voice work while living in LA these days, including non-union dubs (see Hunter x Hunter 11).

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
Moreover, Katie Leigh's biggest and longest-lasting role has been and still is the role of Connie Kendall on the radio drama series Adventure in Odyssey, which she has been a part of since 1987, 32 years straight!

I knew she was a very accomplished VA, but I did know that last fact. Wow!

I’m really excited to see these latest additions to the Viz Dub. Sounds like they’re going all out on this Sailor Stars dub and I love it.

I wonder when they will announce who will voice Princess Kakyuu?
Likely closer to the second set's release, since she doesn't appear until near the end of the series.

You almost made me feel young again!
Still, playing the same character in the same lead role capacity (well, one of the leads, she's probably best described as the second main character) for over three decades without stopping is pretty darn impressive.

She sounds predictable.

I haven't watched Stars in forever, so I'm just now noticing in that clip that five lights go off to earth... I wonder if at that stage they were planning to include Heavy Metal Papillon (and if so, if a character design was completed)?

Yeah, pretty young-sounding and not very intimidating.

Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if they based their casting choice on how Galaxia's disembodied voice sounded in the Nehelenia arc, which DID sound uncharacteristically young, childlike, and playful in the Japanese version, compared to how she would speak in the episodes following that arc.
