Please welcome the newest member to our Shenmue Cast section the voice of Ling Shenhua from Shenmue, Deb Rabbi!!

Her username is Deb and of course please keep all questions respectful and non offensive.

Deb has an amazing portfolio as a VA, with over 35 anime films to her name. Of course as we all know, she also voiced the character Shenfa in the original Shenmue. But for reasons unknown (and hopefully she may shed some light on the matter) she was replaced in Shenmue II by another VA. I know we have anime fans here on the boards so im sure Deb would appreciate some questions regarding those too.


Welcome to the forums Deb!! :D

Pete does it again! I can't actually find any info on her at all to ask any immediate questions..

Would you have done any mainstream anime's recently? Also, were you cast in Shenmue due to a likeness to the character you were auditioning?

Welcome to the Dojo!
You can find me at Tojo Dojo Forums along with Shenmue Dojo regulars!

First off I'm also taken aback at how attractive you are!

If I'm not mistaken you were a voice actor in one of the Record of Lodoss War series, a female elf named Leaf if I remember correctly. Its great to have you here at the dojo.

I may be mistaken but I think Shenmue was your only work in gaming. Is there a particular reason you continued to provide work for anime but never did another game?

Hello Deb, Guilin chapter with Ryo and Shenhua was my favorite part of Shenmue so far. You did a great job with Shenhua voice. Have you played Shenmue and what did you think of it?
"Shenmue II reveals the true scope that the series encompasses and how this story is still just beginning. If it continues to be composed of ambitious, engrossing and entertaining titles like Shenmue II, Yu Suzuki's legacy may be best remembered for the Shenmue series."

She didnt play the voice of Shen Hua whilst in Guilin in Shenmue 2. Deb only played Shen Hua in Shenmue 1.

Also have to give credit to Ziming for the idea of contacting Deb to join the boards. :D

Thanks, Ziming.

Deb, did they give any indication to you where the story was heading at the time you were involved? Just curious if their ideas around 1999 differed from the eventual sequel.

As mentioned before but just to be sure. Any reason why they went with someone else for part 2?

I think she got scared by all the flirting....
If only we could bring Yu here to ask him questions.
I would love to see how you guys would react seeing his handsome face pic.
