By "Part 1" I mean this is the 1st demo reel of '10. There might be another one in another 5 mouths or so.
The voices BLACK*STAR, Maria, and Eruka Frogg are ones I do a lot. And I do other charaters like Maka, Tamama, and ect. But I just picked these.
Harley Quinn is a charater that I love and I can do better, I was feeling off when I did her. But people tell me im an awsome H.Q~

No replies here yet? I'll leave one, than. :P
Well, personally, I don't think your demo reel is too bad, but there is room for improvement. One thing I'll say right off the bat, and it's a pet peeve of mine, is that abnormal levels of volume. The volume seems to fluctuate throughout your reel, where some lines are louder and others are so quiet I can't even hear them. It doesn't do you any good if no one can hear what you're saying. ;)
Secondly, it's rather long. A demo reel should be around one minute to a minute and a half, else people start losing interest.
Also, I'd avoid imitating existing characters if at all possible. For a demo reel it tends to do you better to use original lines from original characters-- characters/lines you've created. If you do characters from a movie, anime series, ect. people will always compare you to the original voice. People will be much harder on you as they compare you, have a more biased opinion, and really... if it's an existing character than we all know what they already sound like or have an idea of what they should sound like, and if you don't sound exactly like what people think it should be than it's going to be more difficult for you. If you voice an original character than people have no idea what to expect and can judge you much more fairly.
Now, I think you had some decent emotion in your lines, which I think you expressed most of them fairly well. One thing I noticed, though, is that your characters tended to sound basically all the same. Some had subtle differences, but nothing really all that memorable (I ran into the same problem with my current reel). Your demo could use a little bit more variety, and again this might be easier to achieve if you voice your own original characters rather than imitating existing characters.
All-in-all, though, it's not bad for a first shot. :)
P.S., that purple font is really hard on the eyes when on this dark gray background... Perhaps use something lighter, easier on the eyes?
