CareerEdit

Growing up in Tokyo, Tōyama loved watching anime series like Ojamajo Doremi and Sailor Moon. She was moved by Full Metal Alchemist, so much so that she wanted to become a professional voice actress. She studied in an all-girls school so as to provide a "consistent education". During her second grade of junior high school, while talking with a classmate's friend who also aimed to be a voice actor, she herself began aspiring to be a voice actor. After entering high school, she entered the Japan Narration Acting Institute, and after three years of training, passed an audition and joined "arts vision". She had somehow made her student life and voice acting compatible in her life.[1]

She debuted as a voice actress, playing her first main role that year as Kanon Nakagawa in the anime series The World God Only Knows in October 2010. She has since played hundreds of roles, including Nisekoi, Nobunaga The Fool, Sound! Euphonium!!, GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation, Pretty Cure All Stars, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Star Driver and Damberu Nan Kiro Moteru, among others.

On November 17, 2016, Tōyama announced her debut as a solo singer, and opened her official website and official Twitter· LINE account.[2] On February 1, 2017, the debut single "True Destiny / Chain the World" was released by her record label FlyingDog. She held her first live at Nippon Budokan on February 3, 2018. On the same day, she announced the establishment of her official fan club.[3]
