She is also known for her roles as Mira Yurisaki in Dimension W, Hane Sakura in Bakuon!!, Mallow in Pokémon: Sun & Moon, Shiori Shinomiya in Sakura Quest, and Akane Shinj? in SSSS.Gridman. She was one of the recipients of the Best New Actress Award in the 9th Seiyu Awards in 2015. She released a mini-album in 2016, and her first solo single in 2018.


Ueda was born in Toyama Prefecture on January 17, 1994.[1] From an early age, she had an interest in performing, joining her school's theater club in elementary.[2] While a member of her junior high school's theater club, she became interested in becoming a voice actress after interacting with a club member who wanted to pursue that profession.[3] She decided to become a voice actor because, among other reasons, she wanted to change her personality.[4] During her third year of high school, she applied for a voice acting audition only three days before an deadline of it.[3]

Ueda won the Second Class Grand Prix in an audition held by the agency 81 Produce in 2011,[1] and formally joined the agency the following year.[5][6] Her first role was in the anime series Inazuma Eleven: Chrono Stone.[5] She also became part of the voice actor unit Anisoni? together with three other 81 Produce newcomers: Rie Takahashi, Chiyeri Hayashida, and Kayoto Tsumita.[7] In 2013, she voiced 18 sisters in the anime series Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono.[8][9]

In 2014, Ueda was cast in her first main role as Naru Sekiya, the protagonist of the anime series Hanayamata;[4][10] she and her co-stars performed the series' opening theme "Hana wa Odoreya Iroha ni Ho" (?, Dancing in the Scent of Flowers) under the name Team Hanayamata.[10] The following year, she was cast as Meika Katai in Mikagura School Suite,[11] Mikan Akemi in My Monster Secret,[12] and Elena Arshavina in World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman.[13] She was also one of three recipients of the Best New Actress Award at the 9th Seiyu Awards.[14]

In 2016, Ueda played the role of Hane Sakura, the protagonist of the anime series Bakuon!!;[15] she and her co-stars performed the show's ending theme "Buon! Buon! Ride On!!" (! ! !, Buon! Buon! Raido On!).[16] She was also cast as Lily Shirogane in Aikatsu Stars!,[17] Mira Yurisaki in Dimension W,[18] Sophie Noelle in Kuromukuro,[19] and Mallow in Pokémon: Sun & Moon.[20] That same year, she made her debut as a singer, releasing the mini-album RefRain on December 21.[21]

In 2017, Ueda played the roles of Hiromi Maiharu in Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club and Shiori Shinomiya in Sakura Quest.[22][23] She also made an appearance at New Jersey's AnimeNEXT event in April.[24]

In 2018, she played the roles of Arthur Pendragon in Märchen Mädchen and Akane Shinj? in SSSS.Gridman.[25][26] She also released her first solo single "Sleepland" on February 7, 2018; the title track is used as the ending theme to Märchen Mädchen.[27]

In 2019, she was cast as Miyako Hoshino in Wataten!: An Angel Flew Down to Me and Gray in The Case Files of Lord El-Melloi II: Rail Zeppelin Grace Note.[28][29]


She says it's easy to sing a song which has fast tempo and cheerful melody when singing a character-song. However, when singing a song with her own name, she likes to sing a song in slow tempo and calmly.[1]

She has the principle that she doesn't drink alcohol at home. This is because drinking at home doesn't make her happy as home is where she lives a life everyday and sense of reality exists.[2]

As she loves Toyama prefecture, her hometown, she travelled there with her colleagues and hopes to go on a location there. She commented "I want to make people in Toyama get to  know her by doing narration in planetarium or doing  voice cast of Yuru-Chara, costumed mascot character devised for PR purposes by local governments"[3]

She says she tends to get right into her role. So she became unable to talk with other people well when she had acted  Akane Shinjo, a character of "SSSS.GRIDMAN" [4]
