Memorable Anime Character Two-fer!

Because of some issues with my laptop yesterday and my attendance at Queen City Kamikaze, I wasn't able to post yesterday's memorable anime character.  So I'm doubling up with yesterday and today's characters.

Name: Excel Excel
Where You've Seen Her: Excel Saga
Her Story: Excel is one of the most energetic members of the group ACROSS. Maybe a little TOO energetic for the taste of her boss, Il Palazzo, whom she has a huge crush on.
Why She's So Memorable: Excel is not the brightest character, but she's a hard worker.  Her tendency towards overexuberance not only makes her character one of the most energetic in anime, but also one of the more memorable ones.
Trivia: Jessica Calvello was the original English voice actress up until episode 13, where she blew her voice out and was replaced by Larissa Wolcott. When you compare the earlier episodes to the later ones you do notice a slight difference in the voices.

Name: Nami
Where You've Seen Her: One Piece
Her Story: Nami is one of the great thiefs, and the navigator for the Straw Hat Pirates.  After her mother was killed, she worked to collect the money needed to free her village, only to have the pirate she made the deal with double cross her.
What Makes Her Memorable: She's the smartest of the Straw Hat Pirates, yet the bossiest. she knows how to use her looks to get what she wants and needs.  Her backstory makes her sympathetic, and her development over time has opened the character up a lot.

Tomorrow -- a computer teaches us how to be human.
