Yū Sasahara (篠原 侑, Sasahara Yū, born April 30) is a Japanese voice actress from Kumamoto Prefecture who is affiliated with I'm Enterprise. She began her career in 2016, and in 2018 she played her first main role as Akari Amano in the anime television series Ms. Vampire who lives in my neighborhood.
Sasahara learned to play the piano at a young age and dreamed of becoming a singer during her elementary school years. She was persuaded against pursuing that career by her parents, who advised her that becoming one was difficult. While in junior high school, she played the clarinet as a member of her school's brass band. Around this time, she was encouraged to pursue a career in voice acting by her father, who told her that she could sing, act, and appear on TV in that line of work. Her father then encouraged her by printing out an audition form for a role in the Japanese dub of the film The Golden Compass, although she ultimately did not push through with auditioning. Nevertheless, as she had already been interested in anime and manga, the experience influenced her to investigate voice acting more and learn about anime production.
During her third year of high school, Sasahara applied for enrollment at the Japan Narration Acting Institute. After passing the entrance examinations, she enrolled at the school while also going to university. While in her third year of training, she received a notification that the she had been accepted into the I'm Enterprise talent agency; she then debuted as a voice actress in 2016. Among her earliest roles was as the character Li Xuelan in the 2018 anime series M?rchen M?dchen. Later that year, she was cast in her first main role as the character Akari Amano in the anime series Ms. Vampire who lives in my neighborhood. The following year, she was cast as Rū Hitoma in the anime series Over Drive Girl 1/6 and Rin Namiki in the multimedia franchise Kandagawa Jet Girls.
