Voice acting


Ortiz's reception with Sonic fans is mostly positive. Like most of the 4Kids actors, Ortiz started off a with mixed reaction, but eventually gained a highly positive reception for her role as Amy Rose. Fans have praised her performance for being youthful, energetic, and showing emotion perfectly (especially when Amy gets angry or shows her feelings for Sonic) as opposed to Jennifer Douillard, whom many fans claimed had no emotion in her voice, and in comparison to Cindy Robinson, whose high pitched performance gained a lot of negative reception until her depiction in the Sonic Boom series.


  • Amy Rose was one of Ortiz's favorite roles to do voice work for.[citation needed]
  • During an Anime NYC 2019 interview with The Natural Aristocrat, Lisa Ortiz was asked if she hoped Amy Rose would convince Sonic to seriously date Amy eventually. Ortiz referenced the revamped appearance of Sonic in the Sonic the Hedgehog film, joking that now that Sonic looks like his old self again, Amy would give him another look. [In Amy Rose's 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."[1]
