Describe Ayako Kawasumi here, [[VerbalTic gyabo~!]]

One of the more prolific female Japanese voice actors, Ayako Kawasumi (born March 30, 1976) had a decent start in the 90's but really boomed after 2000. She has a great versatility in her voice, and whereas her early roles are either {{Genki Girl}}s or [[GirlNextDoor everyday-sweet-neighbor]] friends, her later roles show a wider range. Her role as Saber on ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' made her one of the most popular seiyuu to this day.

In addition, Ayako Kawasumi is a skilled pianist. Has a big-sisterly friendship with younger but no-less-popular seiyuu Creator/MamikoNoto. Has had MANY couple roles with Creator/TomokazuSeki. Chiaki's hatred for Nodame? Requited by Gilgamesh towards Saber. Also has "[[RelationshipVoiceActor relationships]]" with Creator/RieKugimiya, Creator/RinaSato, Creator/SatoshiHino, and Creator/RyokoShiraishi.
