  • Former otokoyaku; switched to musmeyaku in 2002 with the performance Slapstick. However, it appears that there was no official announcement of her change to musumeyaku. (Interestingly two of her classmates, Amase Izuru and Takuma Saki, also switched from otokoyaku to musumeyaku, each on separate occasions.)
