wow! I didn't know that! Galing! Nice! Too bad I don't like Ranka (I'm a Sheryl fan). But she does a great job voice acting and singing.

Indeed she has improved a great deal from the decultured episode. I guess she put those months between decultured and the broadcast to very good use on the voice acting front.

I've always wondered if she was a mix. Turns out my assumption was correct.

After all, her eyes were slightly bigger for a Japanese girl and then there is her facial features.

Probably got that from her mom, who's a Filipino...

I do wonder if she had the experience of hearing Tagalog and some English. But maybe not...

Wouldn't bet on it. Japan is not very welcoming when it comes to South-Asian languages.

No wonder. Now she does look Filipino if I think about it. I doubt she can speak Tagalog though! She's prolly born and raised in Japan.

You mean Southeast Asian?

But yeah, it's possible. But who knows?

From what I heard, she did spend most of her life in Japan. Not enough info on her Pinoy mom.

I knew this from someone who posted in the Gabby news blog. I did kind of think she was either part Filipino/Thai/Vietnamese/Malaysian/Indonesian somewhere down the line but thought it was just me so I didn't comment on it. All I know is that she's got such a cute smile



Nice tan my dear

Is Megumi fluent in English? If yes, now I know why.

I'm hoping she could also voice the Tagalog dub of Frontier if ever it comes to Philippine shores. What are the odds? Considering that Frontier might not even show in the Philippines in the first place

Based on her singing 'bout my Star, I would have to assume not. Got that cutesy Japanese accent when she does it

More than the perfect place to bring up Ijima Mari, who did Minmay in both R1 & R2 SDF Macrosses.

*still waiting for English versions of her songs*

Maybe it's the heavy accents that permeate through. Oh well thanks for the heads up.

To all my Philippine compatriots:

It's either my imagination or Megumi-chan's somehow familiar with Tagalog and English.

If it's my imagination, someone hit me in the back. If it's not, well...
