Talking about her selection for the character Gon Freecs for Hunter X Hunter, she adds the first time she went through the scripts for Killua and Gon along with Menchi and Kurapika. With time the actress understood that Gon does not need to carry an extremely scratchy-voice. And this did not prove difficult for her, reports Latin Post. On the contrary, she gave the character a voice which is more girlish and appears naïve and full of happiness.
Meanwhile, Erica Mendez says that Hunter X Hunter carries one weird thing. And that is Hisoka. Apart from that she enjoys interacting with fans at her conventions. There she gets the opportunity to tell people about her interpretations of her character. And she is surprised to see their reactions on how she makes her character more real and lively.
Interesting enough, Hunter X Hunter’s 2011 version has managed to draw more fans from North America. All the things started with Viz bringing in the anime to the West through the Blu-Ray release. Moreover, the series was also provided with a slot on Toonami.
