Miyu Matsuki

In the Pokémon anime, Matsuki provided the voice of Caitlin in the episode Jostling for the Junior Cup!, and Timmy, one of the Brock's siblings, in the episode A Family That Battles Together Stays Together!.

In July, she took a break from voice acting due to pneumonia. At the time, she said that she had had persistent a fever since the start of the year, and found out that she had acute pneumonia after repeatedly going to the hospital for check-ups. She ultimately died from this illness.

Matsuki's famous non-Pokémon roles include Kūko in Nyaruko: Crawling with Love, Isumi Saginomiya in Hayate the Combat Butler, Magical Sapphire in Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, and Anna Nishikinomiya in Shimoneta: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist.

She was scheduled to voice Charlotte Dimandias in the upcoming anime adaption of Hundred.
