You need a girl that does ''both'' {{Anime}} and WesternAnimation? Try Creator/HyndenWalch. But if you need one that isn't [[TastesLikeDiabetes sugary sweet]] (but can still do sugary sweet anyway if the role calls for it), then Kari Wahlgren is your girl.

She is a prolific voice actress with many roles (probably because she works in many mediums). She is best known in WesternAnimation as Saturn Girl in ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperheroes'', Charmcaster in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', ComicBook/EmmaFrost in ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'', Jane Foster and Amora the Enchantress in ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsmightiestHeroes'', and Nova in ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo''. In anime, she is best known as Haruko Haruhara in ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', Rip van Winkle in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', Saya Otonashi and Diva in ''Anime/BloodPlus'', Relena from ''[[Anime/DigimonSavers Digimon Data Squad]]'', Anemone in ''Anime/EurekaSeven'', Robin in ''Anime/WitchHunterRobin'' (one of her favorite roles), and Kagami in ''Manga/LuckyStar''. In VideoGames, she is best known as Ashe in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' and Lady in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 3'' and ''4''.

Hailing from Kansas originally, she often jokes about how if she had a dollar for every time someone told her "[[Film/TheWizardOfOz you're not in Kansas anymore]]" that she'd never have to work again!

Has a Website/{{Twitter}} [[https://twitter.com/KariWahlgren account]]. She stopped doing non-union voice work in 2005, but still continues to do union voice work in anime occasionally.

And in case you were wondering, her first name rhymes with "Ferrari".

Her Texan counterparts are Creator/LuciChristian and Creator/BrittneyKarbowski; and her Canadian counterpart would probably be KellySheridan. Creator/LaurenLanda and Creator/CristinaValenzuela are considered to be her successors, particularly in non-union dubs.
