Her voice talent was recognized by scouting agents when she worked as a department store announcer. She is a fan of musical artists Glay, Hisashi, access, L'Arc-en-Ciel, and aiko. She is also a fan of both her co-stars Minoru Shiraishi and Minori Chihara in Ga-rei -Zero- for both of their work as the assistant host in the Lucky Channel portion of Lucky ☆ Star and the single Kimi ga Kureta Anohi respectively. Her character Misao Kusakabe in Lucky ☆ Star gained a cult following in fans and spawned internet memes due to her own addition of a nonsensical "vuah" (ヴァ) at the end of her sentence.("if it's picked up within 5 seconds, the germs don't get attached" 五秒以内だったら、菌がつかないんだってヴァ) This began in the 18th episode of the anime where her character Misao was nervous and embarrassed after eating food that has been dropped on the ground in front of others. The popularity was substantial enough to have a 13th Lucky Star character album featuring Misao released four months after the originally planned twelve albums were released even when her character already shared a duet character album as the 9th album.
