Her dub for Satsuki was better than the original english dub. She actually sounded like a child instead of a clearly adult woman trying and failing to sound like a child.

The only reason that Dakota Fanning's take as Satsuki may have fallen under any scrutiny is that there was already an actress who had done a fine job with the role: the late Lisa Michelson. Still, that is not a reason to write off Dakota. Although there are some places where she underacts toward the end of the film, Dakota otherwise does a solid job in her own right; what really credits her performance is the chemistry between her and Elle. It really helps make the sisters' relationship feel all the more tangible. Dakota got to really show her skill when she did the title role of CORALINE years later, but her Satsuki certainly doesn't deserve to be harshly maligned as it is. Lisa Michelson she is not, but that doesn't mean she does a bad job.

It really annoys me the fact that people say that Japanese dubs are better, ok, they're the originals and are good but come on, give the English voice actors credit for taking their time to put their voices into a great movie...if you don't like it, then watch it in Japanese only and quit flaming the English voice overs, I give credit to both for outstanding performances...sheesh who cares -__- long as the character has a voice in our language then I don't mind who does it (unless they really do fuck it up with a bad script and voice acting coach) then you can complain, but this acting was pretty well done -__- also Dakota, good work, you did your thing <3

After just watching this, I'm surprised anyone can be disappointed in her or her sister's performance. I thought they were fantastic and I'm not one for giving much credit to English dubs.

I never knew it was her in the dub :P

Personally, I thought that her role as Satsuki was kind of annoying...

The original English voice actors were better than Disney's voice over. Sorry Dakota fans. =/
Disney's voice over with Dakota doesn't even compare to the Japanese though.
