Yuki Matsuoka is a megas seiyuu who's gained popularity in the early 2000's. She was first noticed as Osaka in Azumanga Daioh and Evangeline in Negima. After that, she's landed megas roles as secondary main characters, like Orihime and Nana. All of her characters tend to be adorable, clueless and loved by the fanbase.
She is also skilled in Japanese dancing and oil painting, nyoro.

Tropes for Yuki Matsuoka:
- Cloudcuckoolander - Osaka and Orihime. And there's also Alisa to count.
- Ensemble Darkhorse - Osaka and Tsuruya
- Memetic Mutation - Orihime is the source of the Leekspin (A.K.A. Loituma/Ievan Polka); Tsuruya is the source for the Churuya-san comics. From those, they're the source of the phrase "nyoro-n." Osaka is the source of SAATAA ANDAGIII and the Gif image of Osaka set to music.
- Kansai Regional Accent - Aiko and Osaka. Justified Trope, since Matsuoka was is actually from Osaka.
- Playing Against Type - Scharlachrot. Instead of a good Cloudcuckoolander we got an Ax Crazy psycho girl...
