Describe Minori Chihara here.................................
...okay, are you gonna keep staring at me emotionlessly like that?
Right, here we go...
Minori Chihara (Fan Nickname
: Minorin) is a seiyuu born in 1980. She is also a J-Pop solo artist. She shot to fame in the anime industry in her breakout role
as Yuki Nagato
, along with a few other individuals
. While her debut is actually The Ditzy Aya Natsume
, thanks to her role as Yuki Nagato, she's now currently viewed as the
seiyuu for Emotionless Girl
. That said, in Real Life
, she's actually a bit of a ditz. Her blog can make for sometimes unintentionally funny reading.

- Cater in Final Fantasy Type-0
