Yukari Tamura (田村 ゆかり Tamura Yukari?, born February 27, 1976 in Fukuoka, Fukuoka Prefecture), is a popular Japanese singer-songwriter and voice actress, affiliated with the talent management agency I'm Enterprise. Affectionately called Yukarin by her fans, she is also known for her high-pitched voice and interest in Lolita fashion. She made her debut as a voice actress in 1997, releasing her debut single Yūki wo Kudasai on March 26, 1997.

While also a well-known seiyū, several of her releases have been used as opening and ending themes for anime series, while some have reached the Oricon top 100 singles and album charts. Her role as Nanoha Takamachi in the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series contributed to a rise in her popularity, as several of her singles (Little Wish ~lyrical step~, Spiritual Garden, Hoshizora no Spica, Beautiful Amulet) were used as the ending themes for the franchise's anime adaptations.

Life and career

Born in Fukuoka, Fukuoka Prefecture, Tamura gained notoriety as an advocate for the Lolita fashion movement, wearing Lolita-style clothing in public, as well as for her music releases, often in music videos and on the covers of her CD releases. In 2001, Tamura formed a unit called Yamato Nadeshiko with another well known seiyū, Yui Horie. Two singles were released, Mō Hitori no Watashi and Merry Merrily - the latter of which was an insert song in the Love Hina Christmas Special.

On January 1, 2007, Tamura's talent management agency changed from Arts Vision to I'm Enterprise, a subsidiary of Arts Vision, and on April 1, 2007, Tamura's record company officially changed from Konami to King Records, however, there was no material effect to Tamura because the actual record production of Konami is carried out by King Records. She has also featured as a narrator of Japanese anime satellite television network Animax.
