She actually voiced Shimada Ayako in Subete ga F ni Naru, Fall 2015 which makes Nashetania not her most recent role

Late to the party, but she's one of my favorites so congrats to her. Not favorite enough to be on my list, but she's close. Most recently I got caught up on the Seitokai Yakuindomo* OVAs and she still cracks me up as Shino.

Edit: Didn't realize it until now, but I've seen 24 different franchises that she's done a voice in and I like most of her characters lol.

Ahh congratz! I hope she continues voice-acting, even if it is 1 main role each season.

Wow. Well, congratulations to her. Lucky dude but kinda sad that they cant reveal who due to crazy people. Still one of my faves.

Kind of fucking sad these seiyuu can't reveal or even post pictures of the love of their lives, without getting death threats and shit. Like really, Japan?

I feel nothing but happiness for her. Every seiyuu deserves to find their happiness without scrutiny from fans.
