When I first saw Tuka I thought "a hot elf...nice!", however when she went full crazy she became one of the most irritating anime girls of all time...

Did I hear Brittney Karbowski's voice in there at the beginning of that clip?! Tuka sounds pretty good!

Not that it's important... cause it's only a couple lines out of the entire show... but Tuka's dad was kinda meh.

The shows worst character, well at least my least favourite character.
I hope when they show the dub cast for Ushio & Tora they don't do this VA a day thing as that as a very large cast of characters.

I did too. My guess is she's voicing Lelei.

Well that's two more of my choices shot down I suppose.

Exactly, the guy was litterly reading his lines, without emotions.

I'm watching Night Raid 1931, and I was just looking up who voiced her character just before coming here, spooky. I loved her in Vampire Hunter D.

Whenever I hear her voice, I instantly think of Mikoto Misaka from Toaru Majutsu no Index and Toaru Kagaku no Railgun haha. Feel like I haven't heard her much lately, but would be cool of she was a main character in the Gate dub!

I love Juliet, especially her YouTube singing, I really do -- but I'm starting to get sick of Sentai always using the same handful of voice actors in every dub. Though granted, I don't care for Gate much so I guess this shouldn't bother me...

Tuka is a living plot device, a macguffin who's most prominent role is to look hot in a white tee shirt and jeans. She fills out her role nicely, I guess...

Her role is so dwarfed in importance... irony?... that I'd rather hear who's voicing either of the rabbit girls.

But hearing Karbowski as Lelei is pretty sweet. I've been going over my School Live BD and I've been loving her performance as Yuki.

I'm betting on Luci Christian as Rory and I'm also betting it's the last role announced, especially after this clip's gaffe. But I guess trying to get a solo Tuka scene was really, really hard.

She was out of action for a few months at one point because she had a kid. (Earlier last year, maybe?)

Simmons seems like a fine choice for Tuka, as does Karbowski for Lelei.

Simmons voice works for Tuka. Though I'm still very disappointed in David Walt's performance for Itami, the voice just doesn't fit the character.
