Hitomi Nabatame (born August 4, 1976) is one of the newer generation seiyuus with an impressive vocal range. She's done bratty girls, an Emotionless Elegant Gothic Lolita, a sexy, mature lady, and then an abrasive woman. She finds herself pigeonholed into Hard-Drinking Party Girl characters and anything with Les Yay (her Eroge roles, however, put her in a cute childish personality, but don't tell anyone that). Yes, apparently it is also well known that she is a Real Life version of Les Yay. She goes as far as calling her School Rumble co-workers her 'wives' (Yui Horie as Wife #1, Mamiko Noto as Wife #2, Kaori Shimizu as Wife #3, Ami Koshimizu as Wife #4). Her 'current wife' would be Shizuka Itō, the seiyuu she works together with a lot, although with Itō's marriage, Nabatame would probably have to call for a 'divorce' on that one (which, incidentally, actually happened when Itō announced her divorce in April 2020). They still remain good friends, though. In spite of that, her early Seiyuu history had a short relationship acting stint with Kenichi Suzumura.


Nabatame has an interesting entry in the world of anime, as she was considered such a genius in her area of expertise that after graduating from her school she immediately got scouted for a main character position in Maburaho.

Despite her tremendous Les Yay involvement, Nabatame eventually proved to everyone that she's straight, by announcing her marriage, which is also on her birthday and the same birthday of one of her characters, Mana Aida/Cure Heart.
