Sonic X voice actor Lisa Ortiz told The Natural Aristocrat if Amy Rose wants to date Sonic again after his film redesign at Anime NYC 2019!

The Natural Aristocrat interviewed Lisa Ortiz at Anime NYC 2019 and she happened to give her thoughts on Sonic the Hedgehog’s recent film redesign… Including a full-on cameo as Amy Rose herself no less! It looks like that Jeff Fowler and Paramount Pictures giving Sonic a much needed makeover was more than needed, as even Amy was starting to have some second thoughts.

According to Ortiz, Amy was this close to ‘being busy’ should Sonic call pre-redesign. Things were leaving Green Hill Zone and entering Death Egg status quickly for the blue Hedgehog. But now that Sonic is looking like himself, the relationship can get back on track. Consider it all ‘growing pains’ that every relationship has along the way. Or speed bumps.

Watch the interview snippet above or read the transcript below:


The Natural Aristocrat [Nir Regev]: Do you hope as the voice of Amy Rose that eventually she’ll finally convince Sonic to date her? You think it’ll ever happen?

Lisa Ortiz: Listen! (smiles) Well now that he looks like himself again, yes! (laughs)

Before she would have been busy?

Yeah, I would have been like, you know… That’s alright. (Switches to Amy Rose voice) “Sure, sure I’ll take a look at him now! We’ll see.” But yeah, that would always be fun. I mean they’ve got a lot to learn. They had growing pains, like every relationship does.

Seasoned voice actor Todd Haberkorn discussed Fear and Hope coming from the same place at heart because they deal with worry for that which hasn’t happened yet.

Voice acting veteran Todd Haberkorn [SAO/Dragon Ball Super] reflected on how he doesn’t hope for roles or expectations in the entertainment industry during an Anime NYC 2019 interview. That at its core, hope is not all that different from fear, they both deal with the unknown of the future and cause stress.

Similar to The Natural Aristocrat’s interview with actor Rodrigo Santoro who commented, “You know I try not to raise expectations in anything because I think that leads to frustration. We idealize things and then you know… I just try to do the best I can in my work and my life in general,” Haberkorn has a similar outlook on the voice acting industry. “I would like it but I’m not going to hope for it. So that when I get it, it’s an awesome surprise.”

Todd Haberkorn comments on Fear and Hope:

“As a book that I’m reading says, Fear and Hope come from the same place. Think about it. Fear and Hope are dealing with things that haven’t happened yet in the future. They both are just a source of stress. So I try to be like, “Okay, I don’t want stress, so I’m not going to hope for it. I would like it but I’m not going to hope for it. So that when I get it, it’s an awesome surprise. And if I don’t get it, I’m like “Oh, okay.”

D.Gray-man’s Todd Haberkorn, voice of Allen Walker, told an entertaining story at Anime NYC 2019 about how the show’s return led to him making good on a bet to get his ears pierced.

D.Gray-man’s English Dub voice actor Todd Haberkorn (Allen Walker/Millennium Earl) reflected on how he was so certain D.Gray-man wouldn’t return after ten years he made a public bet. If the series returned, he’d get his ears pierced… Two months later after that bet was made during a convention panel Q & A, Haberkorn received a Tweet congratulating him about D.Gray-man! As such, Haberkorn proved to be a man of his word and made good on his bet. Actually getting his ears pierced. Just goes to show, you never know what’ll happen in the Entertainment Industry.

Todd Haberkorn comments on D.Gray-man Bet:

“Another example is D.Gray-man. Sh*t, I didn’t know that 10 years later we would come back to that show. I thought for surrrre we wouldn’t. That’s why I made the bet about piercing my ears cause I’m like I guarantee you we’re not doing D.Gray-man. Earlier in that day I’d seen a guy with pierced ears that looked cool, and so it stuck in my head. And so when someone asked about D.Gray-man and I was like that show comes back I’ll pierce my ears because I thought she’d been 10 years.

Two months later! I get a tweet from a fan, he’s like congratulations on D.Gray-man. And I’m like, “Wait a minute….” I went and got my ears pierced, and I made good on the bet. But so who knows? I have no idea what’s going to happen.”

Sword Art Online’s Todd Haberkorn went into pseudo Sugou/Oberon mode when he recorded a humorous voicemail live to Asuna voice actor Cherami Leigh during an interview at Anime NYC 2019!

SAO English Dub voice actor Todd Haberkorn subtly channeled Sugou Nobuyuki / Oberon when he recorded a live voicemail to Asuna herself, Cherami Leigh, inviting her to dinner. Haberkorn joked, “Deal? If it’s a deal, say nothing… Perfect!” drawing laughs from everyone in the room at Anime NYC 2019. One remarked, “I’m going to use that!”

The moment arrived during The Natural Aristocrat’s full interview with Todd Haberkorn when asked if he recorded his Sword Art Online scenes in the studio with Cherami there. Haberkorn mentioned that Anime/Dub voice actors rarely have that partner to play off of for a variety of reasons. Then in the spur of the moment, Haberkorn decided to ring up Cherami in classic fashion!

Todd Haberkorn comments on SAO co-star Cherami Leigh:

“Unfortunately, I don’t get to see Cherami (Leigh) as much as people think we hang out. Even though we are kind of neighbors, like we don’t live that far from each other. Actually, you know what? Thank you for bringing that up. I’m actually going to send her a Marco Polo right now. [takes out cellphone, dials on speaker phone to leave voicemail]

Hey Cherami, we’re sitting here and I’m hanging out with some folks and doing a lot of interview action. We were just talking about you, how amazing you are, how fantastic you are behind the mic, and how that we don’t get to hang out very much even though we kind of live next to each other… So, let’s do this! December, we have to get together and have dinner. Deal? If it’s a deal, say nothing… Perfect! Okay. December. So, she’ll get that message and she’ll let me see know what she thinks.”
