Born Nana Kondou, Nana Mizuki is a seiyuu well-known for her powerful voice, which she often converts to a song so mindblowingly powerful it's an instant Crowning Music Of Awesome. She didn't do much at the beginning of her career, until people started noticing her as Hinata Hyuuga, one of Naruto's Ensemble Dark Horse characters. Things really went up for her when she voiced Fate Testarossa and thus was her ultimate start of great fame. Her music sells like hotcakes and there have been many times where she has gotten #2 on Oricon (Japan's equivalent of the Billboard Charts), and she may be the first seiyuu to break into the mainstream Japanese music industry. In 2007, she became the first Seiyuu Award winner for the Musical Performance category with "Justice to Believe". On the week of June 15, 2009, she achieved the distinction of being the first seiyuu to nab the #1 position in the Oricon Weekly Album chart with her album, Ultimate Diamond. Since then she has won numerous awards and broken numerous records, most in regards to her success as a seiyuu in the J-Pop world.Seems to be One of Us, with a markedly geeky interest in Buddhist esoteric doctrine. And in a message to the fans, she also admitted to being a Pretty Cure fan and how happy she was to get the lead role in Heartcatch Pretty Cure.Recently, she was voicing a Windows 7 mascot and Quinn Fabray (Dianna Agron) in the Japanese dub of Glee.In a survey by Oricon, she's the top selling voice actress. By how much against 2nd place? By four times.*
Audience Participation Song: Most notably, her concert staple 'POWER GATE', in which the audience sings nearly half of the first and second verses.
Not to mention her audience takes it upon themselves, to great lengths, to participate in a song. We're talking glowsticks of certain colors for certain songs, insane jumping and chanting at timed intervals, and more. This is pretty standard at a J Pop concert, though.
Bilingual Bonus: Aside from the copious amounts of English/Engrish in her songs, ROMANCERS' NEO takes the cake for making use of latin. Yep.
Calling Your Attacks: Played with amusingly. Nana loves to yell her songs' names at the top of her lungs right before performing them, and some of them ("ETERNAL BLAZE!" "BRING IT ON!" "POWER GATE!") totally sound like they could be attacks.
Great Balls Of Fire: You will never see ETERNAL BLAZE performed without copious amounts of pyrotechnics. Every concert, no exception - Orchestral concert with a full symphony orchestra playing highly flammable wooden instruments on a rather tight stage? Who cares.
Intercourse with You: The Fandom has generally accepted that Etsuraku Camellia is a very poetic take on sex.
If this flower frantically blooming/ was allowed to bloom by the red crimson moon, even the evening/ would secretly allow us to indulge in our pleasure.
Japanese Pop Music: Initially broke into the industry via Anime character songs and theme songs, but has now become a force to be reckoned with, breaking several records, appearing on Kouhaku Uta Gassen, and even performing at the prestigious Tokyo Dome, making her the only seiyuu to ever do so. If that doesn't make you an iconic J Pop singer, I don't know what does.
Kimono Is Traditional: The Etsuraku Camellia PV and LIVE DIAMOND Performance, and the Junketsu Paradox cover.
Let's Duet: Very often performs her songs in tandem with other singers during the Animelo Lives in which she performs alongside other voice actors and actresses.
Mind Screw: Her music videos all try to convey some sort of story, but nobody's sure what those stories are.
Motor Mouth: Aoki Hikari no Hate's chorus. GIMMICK GAME also counts.
Rearrange the Song: On both THE MUSEUM and THE MUSEUM II, several songs got "MUSEUM STYLE" rearrangements. She also performs nearly every concert with a full band, giving nearly every one of her songs the chance to fall under this trope, even if minimally so.
And we can't forget LIVE GRACE - a full-length concert performed with an entire symphonic orchestra.
Seven is Nana: whores this trope, in every way possible. Understandably so.
Actually, her voice range for singing can vary, but it's usually like this.
Stage Names: Born 'Nana Kondo', but is known as 'Nana Mizuki'.
Star-Making Role: While Hinata was her first mostly known role that garners her some cult fans, it's Fate that propels her to international stardom (In fact it was after her role of Fate that she gets a lot of musical recognition to the point of achieving that much fame in J Pop world).
