Creator: Minori Chihara
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.Minori has performed some songs for anime, most memorably "Paradise Lost" for Ga-Rei -Zero-, which was performed by Yuki in Haruhi-chan episode 6.
Some of her voice roles include:
- Airi Ogata in Mitsudomoe
- Aya Natsume in Tenjou Tenge
- Ayumu Mitani in Ima Sugu Oniichan Ni Imouto Datte Iitai. She also performs the grand opening theme.
- Barbara in Disgaea Dimension 2. She also performs the game's opening theme "Cradle Over".
- Cater in Final Fantasy Type-0
- Chiaki Minami in Minami-ke
- Chouhi Ekitoku in Ikki Tousen (which has her Playing Against Type, considering Chouhi is a Hot-Blooded Tsundere, and another example of female Boisterous Bruiser, considering she's the Expy of Zhang Fei.)

- Coopa in The Tower of Druaga
- Hina Hojo in Lovely Idol

- Mikaze Nakagawa in Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin (Playing Against Type when Mikaze is finally unveiled as a villain. Her Noblewoman's Laugh knows no bounds.)

- Minami Iwasaki and a cameo appearance in Lucky Star, not to mention a Yuki-themed waitress in a Maid Cafe…

- Toa in Dragonaut: The Resonance
