As you know, the popularity of any anime character usually depends greatly on the caliber of their voice. Lina Inverse's character is blessed with two excellent voice actresses, both in the english and japanese versions of Slayers: Megumi Hayashibara and Lisa Ortiz. (Aren't they great? ^^ I perfer Megumi H., though.) In this section, you can learn about the talented voice actresses who bring Lina to life!

Megumi Hayashibara - Probably the most well-known voice actress among fervent anime fans (and with good reason!), Megumi Hayashibara provides the spunky, youthful voice of Lina Inverse in the japanese version of Slayers.

Megumi Hayashibara Name: Megumi Hayashibara
Born: March 30th, 1967
Birthplace: Tokyo
Blood type: O
Height: 155 cm

All in all, Megumi is an incredible seiyuu who also has a beautiful singing voice (she sings all of the Slayers themes and endings!), and is loved by anime fans across the globe.

Asides from Slayers, Megumi Hayashibara has also contributed her lovely voice to plenty of other series. Below is a table showing the characters she has protrayed, and which anime they are from:

Lisa Ortiz - Commonly referred to as the "true voice of Lina Inverse," (opinions may vary ^^;), Lisa Ortiz plays the energetic voice of Lina Inverse in the english dub of Slayers from Software-Sculptors.

Lisa Ortiz was born on December 11th. Her favorite anime series are G-Force and Robotech, because she remembers them from her childhood. Her favorite foods are pasteles and sushi. In her spare time, Lisa enjoys indulging in activities such as writing, dancing, and watching movies.
