Celebrity Voice Actor: Lara Jill Miller was better known for her role in the 1980's sitcom Gimmie A Break!. People magazine wrote an article on her when she returned to Hollywood in 1999, just as Miller was voicing Kari for Digimon.
God Never Said That: Like most character names in the English dub, "Hikari" was shortened to "Kari." Unlike the others, however, no official material released in English has ever referred to her name in full as "Hikari 'Kari' Kamiya."
Word of Dante: She is called "Hikari Kamiya" by Wizardmon in the English version of the highly compressed Digimon manhua. Which was produced by Tokyopop, of all things, not Saban or Disney's Sensation Animation.
An American release has finally been announced and released!
The original Japanese version is also available of Netflix with English subtitles.
