Felecia Angelle

Felecia Angelle

Felecia Angelle is a voice over actor and suspected Sea Witch. We can’t pin anything on her for sure, but she’s voicing adorable characters and there’s a mute mermaid making waves. You do the math. Her non-acting hobbies include pretending she could do better than TV cooking show contestants, playing videogames (poorly), and buying more books than she could ever possibly read. You can hear her voice all up in your anime, as well as coming through the TV to sell toys to your kids. Her work includes The Hero Emilia/ Emi Yusa in The Devil Is A Part-Timer!, Perona in One Piece, Shinoa in Seraph of the End, Supreme Kai of Time in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, Aoi Asahina in Danganronpa: The Animation and Alex Bendetto in Gangsta, Shalltear Bloodfallen in Overlord, Fubuki in Kantai Collection, Sayaka Miyata in Keijo!!!!!!!!, and Lynne in Attack on Titan.
