Ayaka Fukuhara (福原綾香, Fukuhara Ayaka, born December 31, 1989) is a Japanese voice actress from Kagoshima Prefecture affiliated with the agency VIMS.[1] After aspiring to become a voice actress early in life, she made her acting debut in 2012 as the character Rin Shibuya in The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls franchise. She is also known for her roles as Myoko in Arpeggio of Blue Steel and Hotaru Rindō in Qualidea Code.


Fukuhara was born in Kagoshima Prefecture on December 31, 1989.[2] Early in life, she dreamed of becoming a veterinarian, but after listening to a radio drama adaptation of the manga series Hunter × Hunter, she became aware of the occupation of voice acting, and decided to pursue that career track instead.[3] She then took correspondence training lessons to improve her voice skills, while also reading manga aloud in order to practice her acting skills. In high school, she was a member of her school's broadcasting club; she later participated in the national radio contest sponsored by NHK, becoming the first student of her school to make it to the contest, although she was unable to win any award. At the urging of her parents, she took a degree in nutrition at a university, while also attending the Japan Narration Acting Institute (日本ナレーション演技研究所). During her time at the training school, she became part of the voice acting agency VIMS.[3]

In 2012, she made her voice acting debut as the character Rin Shibuya in the video game The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls. She graduated from university the following year.[3] She would then play mainly supporting or background roles in anime until 2015 when she was cast as the character Myōkō in the anime film Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova DC.[4] She also reprised the role of Rin for the anime adaptation of The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls.[5] In 2016, she was cast as the character Grea in the anime series Rage of Bahamut: Manaria Friends,[6] and Hotaru Rindō in the anime series Qualidea Code.[7] In 2017, she played the roles of Sayaka Igarashi in Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler,[8] and Kasumi Ayase in the anime series Dies Irae.[9] She played the role of Tarō Misaki in a new television series adaptation of the manga series Captain Tsubasa in 2018.[10] That same year, she was cast as Mega Man in the video game Mega Man 11.[11]
