Anime series in which she served as ADR Director

Emily Neves and her works provide examples of:

  • Bilingual Bonus: She can speak English and Japanese. In Cross Ange, she sings some songs in Japanese.
  • Contralto of Danger: While she does have a reputation of being casted into soft-spoken girls. She can deepen her voice that would allow her to cast into Action Girl roles. For example, Ange in Cross Ange is one of her deepest voiced roles in her resume.
  • Omniglot: In addition to her native English, Neves can also speak both Japanese and Portuguese.
  • Pigeonholed Voice Actor: A lot of the characters she voices usually don't talk much and are either very soft-spoken, very shy, or The Stoic. However, even with these roles, she has voiced characters with different variety of teenage girls with different personalities, even if most of them aren't Hotblooded or loud.
  • The Quiet One: What she was well-known for at the start of her voice acting career such as Kotomi Ichinose and "Angel".
  • Star-Making Role: Has a couple: Kotomi Ichinose from CLANNAD and Sigyn Erster from Broken Blade.
  • Vocal Evolution: When she first made her debut within the anime community with Kotomi Ichinose, she's often associated with soft-spoken, shy or stoic characters with similar typecasting like Stephanie Sheh. Her later roles involves more variety and the use of a deeper voice that would allow her to voice older women, more Hot-Blooded characters, and Cool Big Sis roles.
