Kaori Fukuhara is of the newer seiyus (born 1986) whose breakout role is Cloudcuckoolander Tsukasa Hiiragi in Lucky Star. She seems to have become typecast as a result for Moe ditz roles (sometimes bordering on Too Dumb to Live), but the ruthless moeblob mah-jong champion Koromo Amae from Saki could be considered a subversion on that.
Hasn't done much with Emiri Katou (who played Tsukasa's twin sister Kagami) outside of Lucky Star, but the two are good friends, and have even done some musical jam sessions together (Kaori on bass and Emiri on drums). Apparently both used to play those instruments in high school. In Fall2011, both ladies appeared in Ad-Lib Anime Laboratory an experimental ad-lib anime in which they ad-libbed lines first which were then subsequently animated.
