Trivia[edit]

  • Kuwatani is one half of the voice actress duo "coopee", along with Chiwa Saitō. In the Divine Design arc of the GetBackers drama CDs, her character does battle with the character voiced by Saito.
  • She's also part of the voice actress quartet "Prits", alongside Yumiko Kobayashi, Nana Mizuki and Hisayo Mochizuki. All four ladies voiced characters in the anime Sister Princess.
  • She has worked alongside Yuki Matsuoka a few times.
    • In the Love Hina Again OVA, Matsuoka voices Kuro, a talking cat which is owned by Kanako Urashima (Kuwatani).
    • In the Negima series, Matsuoka voices Evangeline McDowell, while Kuwatani voices Yue Ayase.
    • In Getbackers, Matsuoka voices Madoka Otawa, while Kuwatani voices Himiko Kudo.
    • In The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Matsuoka voices Tsuruya, while Kuwatani voices Ryōko Asakura. However, the two characters never interact, especially since, chronologically, Asakura leaves the story shortly before Tsuruya is even introduced. However, they do interact at one point in the omake anime web series Nyorōn Churuya-san.
    • In Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Matsuoka voices Amy Limette, while Kuwatani voices Arf.
  • She and Sakura Nogawa have a sort of a rivalry in various roles such as Nanto Yaya and Okuwaka Tsubomi in Strawberry Panic, Michiru Mamiya and Ayumi Mamiya from Magikano and Suiseiseki and Hina Ichigo from Rozen Maiden
