Saeko Chiba took up ballet at a young age with ambitions of becoming part of Takarazuka Revue. However, having failed the entrance exam for Takarazuka Music School in her third year of middle-school she joined the Minami Aoyama Shōjo Kageki Dan (南青山少女歌劇団, South Aoyama Female Opera Group?, also called Nanshō for short) a stage group for teenage girls.

Having had several lead roles over the three years she spent with the troupe, Saeko was then cast in the lead voice acting role of Kotori Haruno in the Sega Dreamcast game Diamond Daydreams. Having had a taste of being a seiyū and deciding that she preferred voice acting to performing on stage, Saeko decided to pursue the career full-time.

Some of her earlier roles include her seiyū debut as Tsubaki Sakura in Kare Kano, Kitsune no Akane in Angel Tales, and Elliot Chapman in Sci-fi Harry. Saeko was famed for her long, straight, black hair and seemingly cold outward appearance which led to her being cast in various tsundere and 'cool-girl' roles. She then cut her hair short in the spring of 2005, which strangely coincided with the increasing diversity of her roles, as Saeko herself noted on the My-HiME fandisc interview.

Saeko has also pursued a singing career with Yuki Kajiura, who wrote music for some of the Nanshō stage shows, writing and producing almost all her material. Her first single was Koi no Kiseki, the theme song for the PlayStation game Meguri Aishite. She has since released nine singles and two albums, along with various character song and drama CDs. She has also performed theme songs for games such as Alundra 2 and Atelier Judie.

Saeko was also part of the group tiaraway with fellow Nanshō member Yuuka Nanri. Originally recording and performing as 'Saeko Chiba & Yuuka Nanri' for Memories Off 2nd, the duo released three singles and an album before breaking up on March 6 2005.

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%8D%83%E8%91%89%E7%B4%97%E5%AD%90

Japanese Wikipedia states that her last few active roles were in 2019, mostly reprising some roles in games/mobile games such as Beryl in Tales of Rays. So it's safe to say she isn't fully retired, but she definitely isn't as active after her maternity leave and unsure if she will reprise all her older roles or not. (Sakamoto Mio's permanent seiyuu replacement is an example of this.)

Though she hasn't voice in too many anime since some minor roles from Crayon Shin-chan in 2015.


snowykevin | Apr 27, 2:08 AM
yeah sadly she’s retired, last anime she was in was in 2013; I at least hope she’s doing well


--Sloth-- | Apr 22, 1:07 AM
If it's true that she's retired from voicing anime, that's too bad. I would love to hear her in a recent show. She's one of my favourite VAs.

Great role as Birdy!!
