Biography[edit]

While a sophomore in high school, Amamiya was introduced to a video collection of roles of voice actress Miyuki Sawashiro. Following this, Amamiya decided to become a voice actress.[2][3]

Amamiya, together with Momo Asakura and Shiina Natsukawa, passed an audition held by Music Ray'n in 2011, with the three making their voice acting debut in 2012.[4] Her first lead role was Kaori Fujimiya in the 2014 anime television series One Week Friends, where she also performed the series' ending theme "Kanade" (奏(かなで)?, lit. "Symphony"), a cover of a 2004 single by Sukima Switch.[2][5] She also played the role of Akame in the anime television series Akame ga Kill which premiered in July 2014.[6] She made her official music debut for Music Ray'n by performing Akame ga Kill's opening theme "Skyreach".[7] In late 2014, Amamiya, Asakura, and Natsukawa formed the music unit TrySail,[8] which released its first single "Youthful Dreamer", used as the opening theme to the anime television series Ultimate Otaku Teacher, on May 13, 2015.[9]

Amamiya, together with Reina Ueda and Aya Suzaki, received the Best New Actress award at the 9th Seiyu Awards in March 2015.[10]
