Mari Okamoto (岡本 茉利, Okamoto Mari, born October 31, 1954) is a Japanese actress and voice actress.


Despite being born in Tokyo, Okamoto was actually raised in Hirakata, Osaka, where she also spent her elementary-school years.[citation needed] In 1961, she made her debut for performing arts activities in comedy. In 1970, she moved back to Tokyo, with subsequent transfer to the headquarters of the city, where she changed her name from "Noda Mutsumi" to her current name.[citation needed] In 1971, she starred in the comedy film Tora-san's Love Call, as an extra.[citation needed]

In 1971, she had made her voice-acting debut in the anime cartoon series The Adventures of Hutch the Honeybee, where she was credited as a guest. Her first major performances were in the two anime television series Hana no Ko Lunlun and Yatterman. From the 1970s to the 1980s, she appeared in many anime works produced by Tatsunoko Production.
