Mai Kadowaki (born September 8, 1980) is a seiyuu born in 1980 whose roles are usually the Token Mini-Moe or sometimes its male counterpart. She also had a tendency to voice girls with glasses which makes sense as she is one herself.
Was married and gave birth to a boy on December 1, 2013. In November 2018, a post on her blog revealed she had gotten divorced.
Notable roles by Mai Kadowaki:
- Akari Taiyou in Il Sole penetra le illusioni
- Chika Koizumi in Kyo No Gononi
- Emil in NieR Replicant and NieR: Automata
- Hikaru Mido in Moon Phase
- The title character in Training with Hinako

- Honne Nohotoke in Infinite Stratos
- Illyasviel von Einzbern in Fate/stay night, Fate/Zero, Carnival Phantasm, Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA and Fate/Grand Order. Quite arguably the role that made her famous and the role that led to some of her pigeon-holing; it was one of her early roles, recorded when she was only 24, and the one that she's returned to in various forms for a decade and a half. Also, ironically, at least in stay night despite being the Token Mini-Moe Ilya is one of the older members of the main cast at 18, a fact not always repeated in many of Kadowaki's other characters.
