Yuuka Nanri (南里侑香, born March 13, 1984 in Nagasaki, Japan) is a voice actress and singer. She is the lead vocalist for FictionJunction YUUKA and a former member of tiaraway. Her involvement in music began when she was 8 years old, when she saw her first musical and decided she wanted to become a stage actress. She enrolled in a local theater group at age 10, and at 13 became one of the stars of the Minami Aoyama Girls' Theater Company. She debuted as a voice actress in 2001 as Bubbles in the Japanese dub of the American animated TV series "The Powerpuff Girls". Her debut as a singer was in 2003, when composer Yuki Kajiura (梶浦由記) selected her to be a vocalist for the FictionJunction project; her debut song was 暁の車, an insert song for the Japanese animated series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.
In 2009 she began a solo career, and has released 5 singles and 1 full-length album to date. She continues to do voice acting in various animated series and occasionally performs live concerts (as herself as well as with FictionJunction) and currently has a web radio program called "Yuuka to OCHANOMITAI".
