Nonaka-San looks forward to meeting all her fans on the Gold Coast in April 2017.
Nonaka-San will conduct a general admission Q&A, and participate in signing and photo sessions* throughout Saturday (10.30am to 5.30pm) and Sunday (11am to 5pm).
Being a fan of the anime Yu Yu Hakusho, Nonaka took up an interest in voice-acting when she was in her upper primary years of school. She has experience in theatre and ballet, which she started upon learning that it was a requirement to become a voice-actor.
From then, she found passion in theatrical acting and upon graduating high school tried to pursue the path of playing male roles in the prestigious all-female Takarazuka Revue, before she gave up because she did not meet the height requirements.
When contemplating her future pathway she remembered her childhood dream of becoming a voice-actress. Out of the characters played by Aoni production actors, her favourite is Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho, and she looked up to Megumi Ogata who played his voice.
Nonaka is also known by fans as Ai Pon. Her most reputable roles are: Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica as Sakura Kyoko, Amagi Brilliant Park as Tiramie, and Mahou Sensei Negima! as Konoe Konoka.
Out of her roles, Nonaka’s favourite has been Shima Katase from Stellvia of the Universe, as the character resonated strongly with her on an emotional level.
