Mizuki Nana (⽔樹 奈々) is a Japanese voice actress, singer, and narrator. Her prominent roles include Hyūga Hinata in the long-running anime series Naruto, Fate Testarossa in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Tsubasa Kazanari in Symphogear, Moka Akashiya in Rosario + Vampire, Tsubomi Hanasaki (Cure Blossom) in Heartcatch Precure!, and Ann Takamaki in Persona 5. She's also had official dubbing roles, such as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games (2012 film).

Background

Nana is well known for voicing female characters who are very shy yet kind-hearted and gentle, and many of the characters she has voiced were initially very soft-spoken but open up after making friends. She's also well known for voicing females with romantic affection for protagonists, as six of her notable characters have romantic feelings for the main characters. Some of her characters seek maternal attention.

She was also part of the voice actress quartet "Prits", alongside Yumiko Kobayashi, Natsuko Kuwatani and Hisayo Mochizuki (all four voiced characters in the anime Sister Princess). Nana Mizuki voices Microsoft's Japanese Windows 7 unofficial "OS-tan" mascot, Nanami Madobe. The mascot's name uses some wordplay on Nana's own name as well as the operating system ("Nana" = "seven").

Nana is the first voice actress to top the weekly Oricon albums chart and the weekly Oricon singles chart since its inception in 1968.

Nana announced her marriage in July 2020 and that she was pregnant with her first child in November 2020. Fans congratulated her on the birth of her child in March 2021.[1][2][3]

Notable Roles

Fans

Nana has a large otaku following. She is highly praised and adored.

Though Nana has a wholesome, friendly image, fans (tongue-in-cheek) enjoy describing her as a supernaturally powerful being who can shape destiny itself.

Particularly in the Senki Zesshou Symphogear fandom, where "Nana wills it!" has been used to explain everything from the announcement of additional seasons to exploding rockets. The meme has also been sighted in Cross Ange discussion.
