Seiyuu Spotlight! – Aoi Yuuki

Welcome to another Seiyuu Spotlight!, the unscheduled segment on this blog where I talk about and praise different voice actors and actresses involved in various anime and if you’re wondering when another male will be featured, uhh yeah, about that…


Today’s seiyuu is Aoi Yuuki, the 25-year-old voice actress and singer who already has over 40 main roles in a lot of anime!

Some fun facts about Aoi (from MyAnimeList and Generasia):

  • 1/2 of petite milady, a pop music seiyuu unit alongside Ayana Taketatsu (best known as Azusa Nanako from K-On!)
  • Her hobbies are writing, drawing, skiing and snowboarding
  • won Best Main Female Seiyuu at the 6th Annual Seiyuu Awards in 2012

Onto her massive amount of roles, let me list some that I know her from:

  • Yoshiko Hanabatake from Aho Girl (Currently Airing)
  • Ringo from Daily Lives of High School Boys
  • Mayoi Ayasato from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
  • Mio Aoyama from The World God Only Knows
  • Sayaka Natori from Your Name.
  • Yuzuru Nishimiya from Koe no Katachi
  • Tatsumaki from One Punch Man
  • Rivalrun from YuruYuri
  • and of course, Madoka Kaname from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Aoi Yuuki is also featured in other popular anime such as Kayo Hinazuki from ERASED, Hibiki Tachibana from Symphogear GYuuki Konno from Sword Art Online IIIris from Pokemon Best Wishes!Peashy from Hyperdimension Neptunia and many more.

Regarding Aoi’s voice acting, she seriously has a vast vocal range. Sometimes whenever I hear her in some anime, I’m actually surprised that she voiced one of the characters, being used to Aoi’s more high pitched and cutesy voice like in Madoka Magica. A good example would be Mio Aoyama from TWGOK or Yuzuru from Koe no Katachi.

Honestly, being able to change the tone of your voice from one character to a completely different one is great.

It’s not only for more deep and serious characters she changes her voice but in the currently airing show, Aho Girl, she plays a silly and energetic Yoshiko and I really didn’t know that it was Aoi at first.

Going over to her singing abilities, she can definitely sing. I haven’t heard anything from her musical duo, petite milady, and also her being in Symphogear G, a music based anime but I bet she’s a good singer at those roles. The only time I really heard Aoi sing was in the ending for episode 1 and 2 of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica“See You Tomorrow” and I seriously love that song.

That’s pretty much all I wanted to say. Aoi Yuuki is a really good voice actress and I hope she’s still successful in the future!

  1. Man, as someone who often doesn’t pay much details to the cast and staff behind Anime (I know I should, but my memory is very bad, especially for names, and I’m allergic to 3D, so I rarely look up that kind of information), having seiyuu spotlight’d is really nice. Thank you!

    By the way,

    1/2 of petite milady

    what do you mean? Pardon the ignorance, but I am not familiar with this unit of measure. 1.5 m?

    1. Yeah, discovering different seiyuu is actually pretty interesting to know about!

      Also, I apologize if that was a little vague, but given that “petite milady” has only two seiyuu in that musical group, Aoi Yuuki is one half of the duo, and the other is another voice actress, Ayana Taketatsu. That’s what I meant by “1/2” or I guess you could say it as “Aoi is one out of the two seiyuu in that group”. Hopefully that cleared it up. 🙂
